Ride of the Week: Living in… and appreciating the Present Moment

What does it mean to live the dream?

Most people who you’d perceive as wanting to live the dream would define it as having lots of stuff, driving cool cars, jet-setting the world and eating the best food. Lots of it is very true, but living the dream for me exists every day in deciding to be happy with my decisions.

I’ve been very fortunate to build a creative life doing what I love and driving some amazing cars.

And although I get to take cars like this 1971 Mustang Mach 1 up and down PCH, I’m grateful to just be in the moment and present to take it all in.

Having a cool car keeps you in the moment, appreciating what you have and not worrying about the past or future. If you were to look at cool cars as tools for abundance, joy and happiness, then that’s what they become.

The Mach 1 was designed to bring you a multitude of things, but what it really did was bring joy into your life for those who wanted horsepower, speed and just a good feeling.

My goal when I was a child was to become a test driver for GM so I could drive all their cars. But my dream came true and was far larger than I expected, as I now do this for 14 car companies on my Vlog.

And I don’t have to drive around a track, but get to cruise all the amazing roads of Malibu and SoCal. It’s clear that I formed a habit in my thoughts about, “Hey, wouldn’t it be cool of I could … ” which led to an obsession.

Back in 1992, my soon-to-be wife called me the “rental car king,” because every time I picked her up, I rented something cool for the day. A Corvette on Tuesday, Mustang on Saturday, whatever.

Ran up a rather large credit card debt on that one, but boy did we have fun.

Cut to 2018, and now we’re driving epic cars and showing you guys who watch the Vlog what they’re all about. Classics, rat rods, customs, new cars, exotics and more.

But above and beyond the cool cars, the true secret I’m trying to show you is in your ability to make a decision to do what you love every day.

You have to make choices today to do things that make you happy, focus on what’s good about something that looks bad, and take action on doing what you love.

Sure, living the dream involves a lot of stuff, but the real dream is about living life now.

And, in my case, in recently driving this Mach 1 from Oxnard’s Murphy Auto Museum. Next week it’s a Corvette Gran Sport, so if you see me, wave and take a look.

In 1971, this Mustang was the height of tech and they were proud of it. There were no cellphones, no Vettes, no drones or lots of other things.

And in 2030, there will be many things that exists that don’t exist now, so appreciate what you’re driving now, go do something fun and be present. That, my friends, is living the dream.

MALIBU CARS & COFFEE welcomes a big Ford Tonka Beast… the F-750

Tonka

What’s brewing for the next MALIBU CARS & COFFEE coming up on April 19th? Well, how about a TONKA?

Big thanks to the boys at FORD, as we’ll be welcoming an appearance by this beefy Ford F-750. And if I can arrange it, I’ll be parking my car right in the back. 😉

Now, it’s unclear as to whether you can buy this Tonka version, but if you can, Christmas is going to be interesting this year. (I used to fill mine with Chocolate Balls and dump them into an EarthMover. Pretty awesome.) But off the heels of having Keanu Reeves (below) at the show last time, it’s going to take something very large to measure up. Looks like Ford may have just the thing. GET ON BOARD, JOIN THE FB PAGE and we’ll see you there!

Ok, so this is the closest we’ve come to seeing the 2015 MUSTANG, plus a concept. Thanks to MotoringAuthority and Mustang6G.com. But is it really all that different and all that exciting? I’m not feelin’ it just yet, but I have faith that Ford will pull it off.

Or, maybe not. What do YOU think?
