Wired.com, Toyota and Fireball head to Malibu…

There I was, minding my own business when WHAM! I get a call from the boys at Wired.com to join in for a cool event put on by Toyota. Specifically, the PRIUS. Now, the Prius being the #1 EcoMobile right now, this event focused on sustainability, greentech and… well, all things eco friendly. And using your Eco instead of your Ego is important in certain cases. Like this one.

Now, me being a designer of movie cars, 650hp tuners and a Green REDSTER, I guess I fit right in? … Um. …Or maybe it was just that I’m a little insane and they wanted me to freak people out? Or just maybe… there’d be a cool car or two there and I could reveal some inside Hollywood SECRETS? AH HA!!! Those sneaky Wired Rats!

So, up the canyon I went to be one of the Featured Speakers at this exclusive event in the hills of Malibu. And all this took place at a very unusual location. A house being built by Frank Lloyd Wright’s grandson, Eric Lloyd Wright. Still in the build stage, this architectural feat was really bitchin.’ And since Wired Magazine sponsored the event, you know it was going to be fun. Wait, didn’t I just call those guys Rats? Ok… I take it back. They are once again… cool.

So, I put on my green underwear and headed up. (Didn’t tell anyone that, though. Not sure they needed to know that?) But we talked environment issues, cool cars, soaked in the monstrous view and had a great time. Big thanks to Jon, Terrence and Maya for having me pitch in. Yes, the cool Wired guys. And no, Ghostbusters 3 isn’t really using the Prius… I just made that up. But they should…

Wired Magazine visits Hollywood…

Had a great time today with the help of Terrence and Jon from Wired Magazine. They came down from San Francisco to see wus up with Cars in Hollywood. So… we showed ’em. And we had a blast!

And since Wired Mag is a Tech-Lifestyle mag, they wanted to know all about the high-tech stuff like… the Corvette Limo from Mystery Men and of course, the General. Ok, not so high-tech, but we discussed other things, too. Like the REDSTER, which is about to leave for Atlanta.

Btw, new Build Episode up Monday, right here. BIG shout-out to the guys from Wired. Passionate about cars and friendly as can be. Get Wired, ’cause it’s fulla cool stuff.

Gonna get WIRED…

Headin’ to the shop this morning to meet up with the folks of WIRED Magazine. They’re comin’ in to talk about movie cars and electronic doodads. Take pictures and all that.

Hope I don’t have spinach in my teeth…

Wait. I didn’t eat spinach for breakfast. COOL! Besides, I don’t really like spinach all that much. It’s kind of like eating alien guts. Well, …creamed spinach anyway.

But I’ve had my coffee and will probably have more. THEN, it’s off to another meeting to do more whatchamacallits. And THAT, will be fun.
