    I am so glad I caught these two vids. Tim allen made me laugh so hard I literally would roll on the floor. Great memories thanks to Tim. That 70 Falcon, Wow! I am guesing that is a 70 because I had the same 70 Torino Gt that shared that body. Made for high speed 4 wheel drifts, ah the old days. I realize these days it was the driver, not so much the car...

    Thanks. However, as watchable as you are, I would have really enjoyed to see under the bonnet/hood plus more of the inside, the dashboard, view from the back seat, all the little finishing touches; also you could've opened one of the suitcase's to show us the craft involved...all in the same amount of time. I think this car is right up Edward&Mrs Simpsons' street. Why you think the King would only be chauffer driven is a mystery to me: even the present Queen used to drive herself from time to time. Her maj had a Rover P5B 3.5 litre: later on a Range Rover.

    Dont tell anyone where you are... You said Burbank police stopped you. Then airplanes made noise and you mentioned that as well. So its safe to assume you in burbank next to the burbank airport or maybe even IN the airport.......

    I made auto paint color matches back in the 80’s- 90’s for Richard Carpenter of the Carpenters with his late sister Karen, i was taken on a private tour of his garage by his right hand man Richard one day in santa fe springs Ca. It had me almost in tears ‘ green with envy ‘ the colors had to be perfect as he entered car shows. From what i remember his collection was bigger then Tim’s, not to take anything away for this great and very funny man. But i could be wrong.. love ya Tim 🙂😁

    Perhaps Tim KK6OTD will do a video of his Ham Radio collection like Joe WB6ACU has done for Ham Nation and Twit.TV, that would probably eliminate the, “Goes Like Squirt” phrase. I would be curious as to what Tim KK6OTD would come up with for Amateur Radio...😎

    I thought I would see the SHO Taurus he drove in the first Santa Clause movie before he became Santa Claus. I bet most people didn't even notice it was an SHO. But I did because it looked exactly like my 1989 gray SHO which is the first year ford made a Taurus into an SHO. I just thought it might be from Tim's collection and he snuck it in the movie. Oh well. Now I kind of wonder who owned it.
