Because we can… YELLOW BRUISERS on FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG

Love the Color Yellow? Well then, this VLOG PLAYLIST is for you! WATCH and let that inner Lemon LIVE!

From WIKI… Yellow is the color between green and orange on the spectrum of visible light. It is evoked by light with a predominant wavelength of roughly 570–590 nm. In traditional color theory, used in painting, and in the subtractive color system, used in color printing, yellow is a primary color.

In the RGB color model, used to create colors on television and computer screens, yellow is a secondary color made by combining red and green at equal intensity.

The word yellow comes from the Old English geolu, geolwe (oblique case), meaning “yellow, yellowish”, derived from the Proto-Germanic word gelwaz “yellow”.

It has the same Indo-European base, as the words gold and yell, or “cry out.”

According to surveys in Europe, Canada, and the United States, yellow is the color people most often associate with amusement, gentleness, and spontaneity, but also with duplicity, envy, jealousy, avarice, and, in the U.S., with cowardice.

In Iran it has connotations of wisdom and connection. It plays an important role in Asian culture, particularly in China, where it is seen as the color of happiness, glory, wisdom, harmony, and culture. Cool.

INCREDIBLE $5M LA FERRARI #1 HITS WHEELS AND WAVES – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 666

$5M LA FERRARI HITS MALIBU WHEELS AND WAVES – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 666Wheels and Waves in Malibu starts with a bang as Actor Dave Thomas shows up in a 1957 Cadillac and then the $5M La Ferrari #001 of 499.

Then, Fireball interviews artist, set decorator and Malibuite LISA DEUTSCH.

From WIKI… LaFerrari (project name, F150) is a limited production hybrid sports car built by Ferrari.

La Ferrari literally means “The Ferrari” in most Romance languages, in the sense that it is the “definitive” Ferrari.

On December 3, 2016, a LaFerrari auctioned off for $7 million making this car “the most valuable 21st century automobile ever sold at auction”.

The LaFerrari is based on findings from testing of the FXX and on research being conducted by the Millechili Project at the University of Modena.

Association with the Millechili Project led to speculation during development that the car would weigh under 1,000 kg (2,205 lb), but a dry weight of around 1,255 kg (2,767 lb) was claimed.

Only 499 units have been built, and each cost more than 1 million US dollars. An additional 500th car was later made to be sold at an auction.

The vehicle was unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, followed by Auto Shanghai 2013, 2013 Tour Auto Optic 2000, 2013 Supercar Chronicle, Italian Chamber of Commerce in Japan.

LaFerrari is the first mild hybrid from Ferrari, providing the highest power output of any Ferrari whilst decreasing fuel consumption by 40 percent.

LaFerrari’s internal combustion engine is a mid-rear mounted Ferrari F140 65° V12 with a 6.3-litre (6262 cc) capacity producing 800 PS (588 kW, 789 bhp) @ 9000 rpm and 700 N·m (520 lbf·ft) of torque @ 6,750 rpm, supplemented by a 163 PS (120 kW; 161 bhp) KERS unit (called HY-KERS), which will provide short bursts of extra power.

The KERS system adds extra power to the combustion engine’s output level for a total of 963 PS (708 kW; 950 bhp) and a combined torque of 900 N·m (664 lb·ft). Ferrari claims CO2 emissions of 330 g/km.

The engine’s bore and stroke is 94×75.2 mm with a compression ratio of 13.5:1 and a specific power output of 94 kW (128 PS) per litre. It is connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and the car is rear-wheel drive.

Ferrari LaFerrari has a power to weight ratio of 1.65 kg (3.64 lb) per horsepower.

COOL 1962 CHEVY PICKUP CAMPER TRUCK! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 665

COOL 1962 CHEVY PICKUP CAMPER TRUCK! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 665 – Fireball heads to the Murphy Auto Museum to drive cool cars, snags a 1962 Chevy Pickup Camper Truck! But what makes this truck so cool? It’s got something that most of them didn’t…

The C/K was Chevrolet and GMC’s full -size pickup truck line from 1960 until 2000 in the United States, from 1965 to 1999 in Canada, from 1964 to 2001 in Brazil, and from 1975 to 1982 in Chile.

The first Chevrolet pickup truck was introduced in 1924, though in-house designs did not appear until 1930. “C” indicated two-wheel drive and “K” indicated four-wheel drive.

The aging C/K light-duty pickup truck was replaced with the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra names in 1999 in the United States and Canada, and 2001 in Brazil; the Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD heavy-duty pickup trucks followed.

Until this time, the names Silverado and Sierra were used to identify the trim level of the C/K trucks.

For the first Chevrolet C Series, made from 1911 to 1913, see Chevrolet Series C Classic Six (the first Chevy).

The 1960, 1961, and 1962 models used torsion bar front suspensions, with trailing arm suspension rears.

Trim lines were base and “Custom.” Engines included the base GMC 305 in3 V6 for the GMC version, 135 hp (101 kW) 236 in3 (3.9 L) and 150 hp (112 kW) 261 in3 (4.3 L) straight-6s, and a 283 in3 (4.6 L) V8 with 185 hp (119 kW).

SPICY ZUCCHINI PASTA! – MALIBU VEGAN KITCHEN 004

Another Saturday Recipe Vid! SPICY ZUCCHINI PASTA! – MALIBU VEGAN KITCHEN 004 – Kathie goes hog wild on a Spicy Zucchini Pasta and Sauce!

Zucchini from WIKI… is a summer squash which can reach nearly a meter in length, but is usually harvested immature at 15 to 25 cm (6 to 10 in). In Britain and Ireland a fully grown zucchini is referred to as a marrow.

Zucchini can be dark or light green. A related hybrid, the golden zucchini, is a deep yellow or orange color.

In a culinary context, zucchini is treated as a vegetable; it is usually cooked and presented as a savory dish or accompaniment. Botanically, zucchinis are fruits, a type of botanical berry called a “pepo”, being the swollen ovary of the zucchini flower.

Zucchini, like all squash, has its ancestry in the Americas. However, the varieties of squash typically called “zucchini” were developed in northern Italy in the second half of the 19th century, many generations after the introduction of cucurbits from the Americas in the early 16th century.

Zucca is the Italian word for pumpkin/squash and zucchino/zucchina (zucca + ina = little) are diminutive forms, becoming zucchini/zucchine in the plural. Zucchino, the masculine form (zucchini in the plural), is the first form to be documented in writing. An Italian dictionary called lo Zingarelli 2015, Zanichelli Editore, gives both forms, as does the Devoto-Oli published by Le Monnier, but the Accademia della Crusca, the most important research institution on Italian language, defines zucchino as the preferable form. The Treccani, Istituto dell’Enciclopedia italiana, another highly respected linguistic authority, gives zucchina as the main Italian word, and the masculine form as Tuscan dialect. Zucchini is used in Italy, Australia, Canada, Sweden and the United States. Zucchini is one of the plural forms in English (along with zucchinis), as well as the singular form.

The first records of zucchini in the United States date to the early 1920s. It was almost certainly brought over by Italian immigrants and probably was first cultivated in the United States in California.

Swing on into Malibu’s WHEELS AND WAVES this Sunday morning…

That’s right, my Wheels and Waves Cars & Coffee event will be at the Malibu Country Mart from 7 a.m.-9 a.m. this Sunday, Aug. 20.

In past months, we’ve had more than 160 cars from all over Southern California converge into Malibu for this brisk morning show. Classic cars, muscle cars, vintage bombs, hot rods, trucks, one seriously massive military vehicle and some crazy rat rods.

Plus, we get the gambit of celebrities and we have been graced (for two hours) with Malibuite Dick Van Dyke. Past shows welcomed Keanu Reeves, Jonathan Banks, Tony Dow and others.

It’s a blessing to be able to create an event where people can share what they love most.

Our 21-mile stretch houses some of the most spectacular cars on the planet and we see them every day. It’s inspiring to pull them together and create a space where we can converse and swap stories of what we’ve seen, heard and built.

We’ve had Dow’s 1965 Corvair premiere at Wheels and Waves after a 50-year hiatus. We’ve watched a hand-built copper and brass rat rod, built by blacksmith Joe Magliato, enter.

We’ve heard a 600-horsepower Porsche built by WIKD Kustoms, who is now restoring Dow’s Corvair! We’ve watched Chuck Schauwecker’s Japanese hot rod called “Rodriguez” glide in, as well as many cars from The Automobile Driving Museum and Murphy Auto Museum.

Personally, I’ll be bringing in something special (a classic truck) from the Murphy this Sunday.

Plus, not only will we be premiering a new sound system from WIKD, but this month’s sponsor is Croftgate Santa Barbara; they make waterless car care products that are awesome.

They will be the reason that the first 100 cars will get free coffee, so be sure to thank them.

As always, I’ll have the “red bag of doom” filled with Hot Wheels where you’ll be able to reach in and hopefully not get bit by something!

The show is expanding from the Malibu Country Mart into the Malibu Village lot where there’s over 500 spaces. There’s plenty of room to house car clubs.

But I would be remiss to not thank those who already attend this awesome show.

Your passion for car culture is keeping it alive and helping it reach new, younger generations. The fun of seeing friends and making new ones expands not only our love of cars, but also of each other.

This is Malibu, and we only do things one way: the cool way.
