I was without my own place for nearly two years. It’s such a cliche to be a homeless musician in New York, but luckily, I had amazing friends who let me stay with them. I visited my parents a lot. It’s not like I was sleeping in my car, though I might have done that once… But it was by choice!
There was the time I bought three cars in the span of three or four weeks. It was crazy; it wasn’t greedy. It was mine, my girl’s, my mom’s. I got Benzes for my ladies. But I felt crazy. You have to understand I come from a world where we’re very modest. But that’s not greedy. That’s nice, right?
When I was writing ‘Kitchen Confidential,’ I was in my 40s, I had never paid rent on time, I was 10 years behind on my taxes, I had never owned my own furniture or a car.
I didn’t want a pickup with mud tires. I wanted an old blazer with as many speakers in the back as I could afford. I would even steal them out of my brother’s car and pack them in there.

I think Tesla will most likely develop its own autopilot system for the car, as I think it should be camera-based, not Lidar-based. However, it is also possible that we do something jointly with Google.
I think that technology is the best thing that ever happened to mankind. It’s an absurd notion that somehow, ‘My God, what are we going to do when driverless cars come along?’ It’s going to save lives on the road.

If I go onstage, I want to give people everything they want and more. I’ll wash their car for them on their way out.

I had a ’69 Road Runner when I was a kid. I had it for 13 days, came home one day, and my parents were in the driveway.

Yeah, well I think anyone who likes fast cars will love the Tesla. And it has fantastic handling by the way. I mean this car will crush a Porsche on the track, just crush it.

Johnny Guitar… just one of my favorite singers of all time. I met him when we were both on the road with Johnny Otis in the ’50s when I was a teenager. We traveled the country in a car together. I would hear him sing every night.

Being a good race car driver is one thing, but to take all the time commitments and all the pushing and pulling and learning when to say no – because you need to rest or focus on the things you need to do to make the car go fast – those are the hardest things to learn and the most distracting things to learn.
If I buy a new car, I rip the rearview mirror off because I don’t like to look back.

Qualifying is all about putting everything that you have and that the car has in one lap. It’s like a rush, I really enjoy that.
I think electricity will create a new world. I feel like the world will change a lot with electricity, and I wonder how it will change, it’s scary, and it’s going to be fun. I think there are so many things to think about when it comes to electric cars.
Eventually, all cars are going to be autonomous.
Since I was , I’ve had that feeling of, ‘Am I enough? Am I worthy? Am I supposed to be here?’ And my culture and society is telling me that I’m actually not in a lot of ways – unless I have this amount of money, or I’m in this kind of car and I have this kind of job, or I’m famous, or whatever.

The way I drive, the way I handle a car, is an expression of my inner feelings.
It was just the next logical step from making succinct pop songs. What do you do after that? You make pop songs that are longer and more epic, that push the envelope. Imagine your favourite song, or something that you play over and over in the car, except that you don’t have to start it over as much.

I have always been interested in abandoned cars. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in a car, driving, and there’s a car sitting in a pasture, totally abandoned. Or on the edge of a creek or something. I always wonder: why did somebody park it in the pasture and leave?
The problem is that the Iraqi people are facing atrocities from both sides – Zarqawi and also the American troops at times. The Zarqawi groups uses car bombs, the Americans use other bombs. You also know what they do in the prisons.
If I were to look in the United States or in Europe, in some of the garages, you would have a Bentley or two Bentleys or a high-end Mercedes, and you may find a Smart also in that same garage because that person thinks it’s a fun extra car to have.

I put a list together. It was like: Get health insurance, get a car, get a bigger apartment, travel more, get a record deal, get a publishing deal, sell 10,000 units, be a part of a No. 1 album, make a million dollars. I got to check off 90 percent of the stuff last year. I hit some serious landmarks in 2015.
Really, I’m the type of girl, and I know other girls who are the types of girls who it’s not about the chain, it’s not about the car, not about the house or this, that, and the other that you think are impressing me. It’s really the intellect. It’s really stimulating my mind.
You’re safer in the race car than you are in cars going to and from the track.
I really like listening to music in my car.

Being an actor, you can get spoilt a little bit: car services come and pick you up, you get put up in nice hotels, people fetch you coffee, and so on. It is wonderful, but you can get lost in that world pretty quickly and start believing that it is real life.

Without grounding, it’s easy to embrace the ‘baller’ lifestyle: dropping out of tech, throwing money at cars, boats and real estate, and slipping into a cycle of spending and indulgence.
I think perfect dates involve walking a lot, and not a bunch of driving around in cars. Ideally, you can walk together and go to a restaurant, and then walk from there to another nice place – this is, I guess, because of really great dates that I’ve had with my wife here in Portland.
When we advocate for violence against women to be eliminated on campuses, we say, ‘Well, actually, it’s not just on campuses we have to worry about.’ We might have to worry about high schools. We might have to worry about police precincts and cars. We might have to worry about public housing.

And the reason the windshield is so large and the rearview mirror is so small is because what’s happened in your past is not near as important as what’s in your future.
When you drive your car, E = mc2 is at work. As the engine burns gasoline to produce energy in the form of motion, it does so by converting some of the gasoline’s mass into energy, in accord with Einstein’s formula.

I really like Kendrick Lamar. I’m still a Talib Kweli fan, Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def, Common Sense – people who say things that are relevant to everyday life. I don’t pay attention to artists that talk about throwing money away and the car that they drive.
I’m not really worried about the flashy stuff. I don’t got chains and cars. I spend what I need to spend. It doesn’t faze me.
I’ve always wanted to race cars, ever since I was a young boy, as I think a lot of guys have.
As human beings, we’re very materialistic and have all this stuff – furs and cars and diamonds and money.
Every song has a composer, every book has an author, every car has a maker, every painting has a painter, and every building has a builder. So it isn’t irrational to take this simple logic a little further and say that nature must have had a Maker. It would be irrational to believe that it made itself.
I’ve got CDs in my car, listening all the time for that next song, because everybody’s looking.
Everything in life is somewhere else, and you get there in a car.
In sport there is never any moment that is the same as the other. I have been in Formula One for 12 years, and out of that I had one year with the perfect car.
I’ve still got that little freedom part of me that wants to have a car that looks really sexy.
Long after the bomb falls and you and your good deeds are gone, cockroaches will still be here, prowling the streets like armored cars.
Society is fast – fast food, fast cars, fast everything.
You only produce one car less than the demand for the vehicle. You just don’t exceed that equation.
I do YouTube my cars a lot.
I used to take my car and go down to the South Island for five or six days and climb glaciers and jump out of planes and jump off bridges and go white water rafting – a bit of thrill-seeking.
You discover how confounding the world is when you try to draw it. You look at a car, and you try to see its car-ness, and you’re like an immigrant to your own world. You don’t have to travel to encounter weirdness. You wake up to it.
That’s how we grew up – kinda like Pops would put his drums, his percussion and instruments into the car and we would just go to a facility in the Bay Area and he would say to us, ‘You think we have it bad? There are people worse off than we are. Let’s go give back to the kids.’ And that’s how we grew up.
I feel that I’m in good company behind the wheel of the Williams FW08C. It was the first F1 car to be driven by the great Ayrton Senna, and it won the 1983 Monaco Grand Prix.
You should never ever buy a car in a panic – otherwise you’ll buy the first car you see without knowing what you’re getting.
During the early days of HootSuite, when social media was still seen as a fad, I made the decision to treat our funding as if it were my personal bank account. That’s not to say I blew it on fast cars and fancy dinners. Exactly the opposite.
There’s three things men always talk about – women, sports, and cars.
There is clearly this gene inside me or this thing inside me that I’ve always had in my blood. I don’t know, but since very little I’ve always wanted to be in racing cars, and that was without knowing who my dad was and what he was doing for a living.
I had to leave, and my husband was forced to stay on this plantation until after the harvest season was over. And then the man that we had worked for, he’d taken the car, and the most of the few things we had had been stolen.
Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that’s where it’s really at.
My grandfather on one side was trained as a cabinetmaker but eventually worked as a coachbuilder and then built cars. I inherited from him a love of cars, but with no technical ability whatsoever, sadly!
Myself and my two younger sisters and brother were paid for any chores, whether it was washing pop’s car, sweeping the lawn or picking mangoes.
I’ve got a role in the new Billy Bob Thornton movie that Billy Bob wrote and is going to direct called ‘Jayne Mansfield’s Car.’ I only have four scenes, but I have as much dialogue as anybody in the movie.
We have spent so much time worrying about a ‘cyber Pearl Harbor,” the attack that takes out the power grid, that we have focused far too little on the subtle manipulation of data that can mean that no election, medical record, or self-driving car can be truly trusted.
Driving a car is no longer about zooming down clear lanes, the joy and freedom of the road flowing through your hair like a fine westerly breeze. It’s about solid traffic, petrol fumes, spy cameras, eco-guilt, and simultaneous social media.
I was an economics major in college, and every summer after school, I would drive my car from California, from Claremont men’s college at the time, to New York. And I worked on Wall Street.
I would not advise people to buy a car or house without making a list. You will probably improve your intuitions by making a list and then sleeping on it.
I find people interesting. People trying hard are interesting. People with a passion are interesting – whether it’s old cars or taxidermy or knitting.
We each own one car, and we have a reasonable house. It’s a lovely place to be, but it’s not extravagant.
In the last three years of racing I’ve met as many women fans as men fans, and in NASCAR it’s the same thing. My wife loves cars, but the difference is she doesn’t have 20 years of understanding the background of them. She basically drives them and uses her gut feelings as to which is best.
I probably wouldn’t be a good spokesman for an electric car, because I’ll still get on a private jet, and one flight on a private jet undoes all my electric-car good deeds.
Fast cars like Porsches and Ferraris – they are things of beauty.
I got a lot of influence from my father, honestly. He’d take me in his car. I’d hear Carlos Santana. I’d hear Queen. I’d hear all these Turkish people, like, bands that he grew up listening to. He was in a band as well.
But now I feel off the grid. I feel that I am not part of the culture. And because I don’t have a car I don’t really go anywhere to buy things. In fact, I have been in a slow process of selling and giving away everything I own.
The autonomous car is definitely coming, and when that stage comes, this ride-share business becomes even more important.
The U.S. automotive industry has been selling cars the same way for over 100 years, and there are many laws in place to govern exactly how that is to be accomplished.
You get such a visceral thrill driving a race car. You think you’ve driven, and then you’re like, ‘Oh, I was doing something for 20 years that I didn’t realize I hadn’t experienced the real version of.’
I can remember the first time I tried to drive into the garage of the world headquarters of Ford in a Camry. It was almost like they wouldn’t let me in. They said, ‘Why do you want to do that?’ I said, ‘Because we are going to make the best cars in the world, and we need to know everything about the competitor’s car.’
I don’t think I’m a celebrity. I’m just a guy from east Texas who loves cars and airplanes.
Before this DJ thing, I was hopelessly taking things apart to try to figure out how they worked. I’d go mess around with burned-out cars, with my mom’s stereo – I was public enemy #1 in my house for that. So my mom noticed that I was interested in this and decided to send me to school so I’d know what I was doing.
The problem of getting from home to the metro, BRT or bus stop makes many people take their cars to work. Why not start a fleet of electric buses that just circle through neighbourhoods connecting them to the various public transport hubs?
Times change, things move. F1 used to have customer cars years ago. You could buy a car from March or from Ferrari and go racing.
I am a big car enthusiast. I totally understand guys like Jay Leno who have a thousand cars. But asking me my favorite car would be like asking my favorite song or favorite food – it changes everyday.
Life is a gamble. You can get hurt, but people die in plane crashes, lose their arms and legs in car accidents; people die every day. Same with fighters: some die, some get hurt, some go on. You just don’t let yourself believe it will happen to you.
If you’re a young black dude from the hood you want to come through the hood in a car that makes a lot of noise.
A Rolex watch or an expensive car are the things guys often use to show status, wealth, and basic desirability.
Cyclists. I really hate them. I wish they would not be so self-righteous and realise they are a danger to pedestrians. I wish cyclists would not vindictively snap off wing mirrors on cars when they were trying to cross in front of the car at a danger to motorists and pedestrians.
My boyfriend keeps telling me I’ve got to own things. So, first I bought this car. And then he told me I oughta get a house. ‘Why a house?’ ‘Well, you gotta have a place to park the car.’
I don’t like new cars; I’m into vintage cars – there’s a Jaguar E-Type in the ‘Goldie’ video.
I remember Detroit feeling really unsafe, feeling scared a lot. Our house was broken into, our car was stolen, we had to get a watchdog, we would get beat up in the street, I had my bike stolen. There was just a lot of real anarchy on the streets and sidewalks.
I have a 15-year-old boy, and we are about to give him car keys, which seems like an act of insanity when you know what you know about 15-year-old boy behavior. But in 2018, we’ll have self-driving cars, and it will be so much better. My son may be the last generation of kids who learns to drive.
I was just a toddler when my dad died in a car crash. With my mum, Eunice, being a young widow with a large family, she really struggled money-wise.
I wasn’t going to get such a nice car – I was going to get a cute little hybrid or something, keep the trees happy – but then my grandfather died, and it was all: retail therapy!
There was a time in my life when I thought I had everything – millions of dollars, mansions, cars, nice clothes, beautiful women, and every other materialistic thing you can imagine. Now I struggle for peace.
We left the guns hidden in the car and tried walking into the polling place again, and the mob blocked us again. We didn’t pursue it.
I’ve always been asked, ‘What is my favorite car?’ and I’ve always said ‘The next one.’
I remember when I started off, my first car was a Kia Spectra. With a spoiler kit and some rims.
I had a friend who was a clown. When he died, all his friends went to the funeral in one car.
If you look at landscape in historical terms, you realize that most of the time we have been on Earth as a species, what has fallen on our retina is landscape, not images of buildings and cars and street lights.
Everything I do is for my parents and my family. The car is nice, the house is nice, but none of this matters without them. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be here. I don’t know where I would be, honestly.
We could definitely make a flying car – but that’s not the hard part. The hard part is, how do you make a flying car that’s super safe and quiet? Because if it’s a howler, you’re going to make people very unhappy.
Humans are unbelievably data efficient. You don’t have to drive 1 million miles to drive a car, but the way we teach a self-driving car is have it drive a million miles.
Nobody wants to buy a $60,000 electric Civic. But people will pay $90,000 for an electric sports car.
The prenup needs to be drawn up months before the wedding, not days – it’s not something you slap together and sign in the car on the way to the ceremony. A shotgun prenup might not hold up in court.
Most people have no concept of how an automatic transmission works, yet they know how to drive a car. You don’t have to study physics to understand the laws of motion to drive a car. You don’t have to understand any of this stuff to use Macintosh.
I couldn’t find the sports car of my dreams, so I built it myself.
I’m fascinated by the narrative of geology, and I’m a veritable pack rat of a collector on the road. I keep a rock hammer in my car.
My mother and father, with my newborn brother and me in the backseat of the 1938 Ford sedan that would be our family car for the next decade, moved to that hastily constructed Army ammunition depot called Igloo, on the alkaline and sagebrush landscape of far southwestern South Dakota. I was three years old.
The automobile engine will come, and then I will consider my life’s work complete.
In the heat of the Russian summer a sleeping car is the most horrible instrument of martyrdom imaginable.
When a man opens a car door for his wife, it’s either a new car or a new wife.
Whither goest thou, America, in thy shiny car in the night?
I was brought up in a car family, my dad loved cars and I was taught the art of making an Austin 7 operate.
You know what I really love? The CD players in a car. How when you put the CD right up by the slot, it actually takes it out of your hand, like it’s hungry. It pulls it in, and you feel like it wants more silver discs.
When you have fast cars and bad luck, it’s a lot easier to handle than having slow cars and bad luck.
The cars haven’t advanced that much since we were kids. When you boil it down, it’s still a gas combustion engine.
A dream without ambition is like a car without gas… you’re not going anywhere.
Medical tourism can be considered a kind of import: instead of the product coming to the consumer, as it does with cars or sneakers, the consumer is going to the product.
My very best friend died in a car accident when I was 16 years old. That was the hardest blow emotionally that I have ever had to endure. Suddenly, you realize tomorrow might not come. Now I live by the motto, ‘Today is what I have.’
I always set the bar very high, not in terms of results but most in terms of preparation and focusing on the job there is to do in the car.
Forget the damned motor car and build the cities for lovers and friends.
I have a nice car, a Mercedes. And then I have an old El Camino truck that I’m crazy about. I like to get in that truck and go up in the hills near where I live, in Vegas, and take my camera. That, to me, is Heaven, being out in nature, taking pictures of the wildlife.
I’m a sort of nuts-and-bolts guy. I’m into turning wrenches and swinging a hammer and wrenching on cars.
I still don’t have a car. I still travel by public transport. I take autos to travel to and fro for recordings.
People try to function in the real world – the analog world – while they’re texting in the digital world, and they run into the car in front of them. It doesn’t work to be in both.
I would love to buy a Koenigsegg Agera RS. It is such an incredible car. It has so much power, the sound is like no other V8 I’ve ever heard and if you get it just right, then it makes this incredible thunderous clap. I absolutely love that car.
In this kind of situation, we tend to cling to his convictions, we believe that, by magic, we are going to recover. Then we agree to drive less good cars and we are fatally more exposed. It is what finally happened to me with Ensign.
The Ford Flex is a really, really cool car. You get inside and you have so much headroom and it’s really comfortable to drive and it’s real techy inside. You look at the screen and it’s blue and you’ve got all kinds of controls. Everything is digital.
So much of life is luck. One day you make a right turn and get hit by a car. Turn left and you meet the love of your life. I think I made the correct turn.
When you drive it is you, the car and your performance on track that counts. That is why I do it.
If your goal is to be the biggest movie star in the world, a 10-movie contract is gold. It was never my goal. Up until now, I made movies – and I have a nice house, a nice car. I’m fortunate, happy and grateful. Life is good.
Food is the only snobbery allowed. Imagine pulling up in your expensive car alongside somebody at the lights with a cheap car and saying, ‘Is that all you’ve got?’ But people do it with food.
I read on my iPad when I travel. I listen to audiobooks in the car. I read books in my bedroom, where I have a comfortable couch, a lamp and two dogs to keep me warm.
Older cars tend to drive like older cars. That is not for me.
My first car was a 1976 Toyota Corolla Liftback in red, like the one in ‘The Blues Brothers.’ I painted a Union Jack on the roof. I was absolutely in love with it until I destroyed it, which broke my heart!
We need to steer clear of this poverty of ambition, where people want to drive fancy cars and wear nice clothes and live in nice apartments but don’t want to work hard to accomplish these things. Everyone should try to realize their full potential.
I love driving my car on any highway.
We are getting way too much info in the cockpit. Sometimes I switch off the display in my car!
See, what you’re meant to do when you have a mid-life crisis is buy a fast car, aren’t you? Well, I’ve always had fast cars. It’s not that. It’s the fear that you’re past your best. It’s the fear that the stuff you’ve done in the past is your best work.
Whatever I think of, that’s what I do. I wake up and think, ‘I want to buy a car’, I buy a car. I wake up and be like, ‘I just want to lay in bed with my girl’, I do that. I wake up and want to rap, I rap. So whatever I think of.
Indy car racing is much more aggressive.
I’m in a BMW rut. My last three cars have been BMW 3-Series.
There are many role models I’ve been around, and kind of the biggest one – there’s a show called ‘Push Girls,’ with all women in wheelchairs, and they’re all really good friends of mine. And one, Angela Rockwood, is still modeling, in a wheelchair. After a car accident.
If I get into a car on a circuit, I drive as fast as I can; that’s it!
When I was four, I just wanted to drive, I collected toy cars. Where does that sort of thing come from? In hindsight you go, ‘Oh, liked it because of this.’ Maybe it’s just the wheel.
Think of your body like a car: a glass of water first thing in the morning is like starting your engine.
Anything that’s different from your own realm of experience as a human being, whether it’s driving a car or a boat, or using guns, anything that separates you from yourself and leads you more towards this character’s existence is a big help.
I was very down as a teenager, very upset because I had gotten hurt in a car accident. But my dad was a source of strength. He used to say, ‘It’s the character with strength that God gives the most challenges to.’ I’ve thought about that so many times in my life when things didn’t go right.
America… just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.
Huge numbers of people in London depend on their cars. Fuel duty is becoming a big factor in people’s cost of living. I believe in trying to ease these burdens.
I have bad reflexes. I was once run over by a car being pushed by two guys.
So, I remember when I was a kid, I was waiting for my mom to come home when she was working late, and, you know, I was like, ‘Oh my God, what happened to her? Is she OK? Did something happen to her getting in the car?’ I was a little kid. But those are actually early onsets of anxiety.
I’ll always be into sports. Sports is part of my life forever. My TV stays on ESPN all day long, I’m one of those. I don’t even listen to music in the car; all I listen to is sports talk.
Never have more children than you have car windows.
I’m not trying to be new school and I’m not old school – I’m classic. There’s a lot of new cars and there’s a lot of old cars, but I’m just classic in doing what I do.
This generation is so dead. You ask a kid, ‘What are you doing this Saturday?’ and they’ll be playing video games or watching cable, instead of building model cars or airplanes or doing something creative. Kids today never say, ‘Man, I’m really into remote-controlled steamboats.’
The guys have a lot of good cars built up. We’re going to do some more testing before we go back to Las Vegas and try to win at Vegas again. We need to get off to a quick start.
Auto racing is boring except when a car is going at least 172 miles per hour upside down.
I drove 3,500 miles this summer on our family holiday, we drove across 10 countries. I have driven across the United States four times. I love cars, I love being in cars, I think so do most people. I want to help and support those people who have that same kind of enthusiasm for driving that I have.
I come from Toledo, Ohio, a town that has been hurt badly by the shift of the automobile business towards Japan. And yet I remember how the car workers lived in the neighborhood that I grew up in. My father was a car salesman, and I remember how we lived. I remember how modestly we lived.
I’d be a race car driver. I love fast cars.
My mom and dad were ‘helicopter parents,’ literally. Meaning, I didn’t have a nanny, so I went up in the helicopter. My entire early childhood education consisted of tagging along while they reported on car accidents, multiple-alarm fires, and shootouts.
We at BMW do not build cars as consumer objects, just to drive from A to B. We build mobile works of art.
I don’t think radio is selling records like they used to. They’d hawk the song and hawk the artist and you’d get so excited, you’d stop your car and go into the nearest record store.
I don’t put myself on Jeff Beck’s level, but I can relate to him when he says he’d rather be working on his car collection than playing the guitar.
People are so bad at driving cars that computers don’t have to be that good to be much better. Any time you stand in line at the D.M.V. and look around, you’re like, Oh, my God, I wish all these people were replaced by computer drivers.
True, I drive an Italian sports car around Hollywood, but the radio is tuned to a country-and-Western station.
When you get into your car, shut the door and be there for just half a minute. Breathe, feel the energy inside your body, look around at the sky, the trees. The mind might tell you, ‘I don’t have time.’ But that’s the mind talking to you. Even the busiest person has time for 30 seconds of space.
Just be nice to me while I am doing the scene; that is all. I don’t want big cars, I don’t want big hotel rooms.
The first car I drove was a BMW M3. I drove it around a circuit close to my house. We just wanted to go and have some fun and didn’t think it was going to be competitive in terms of lap times. But I ended up being faster than the instructors that day.
I don’t run a car, have never run a car. I could say that this is because I have this extremely tender environmentalist conscience, but the fact is I hate driving.
My father’s a Southern Baptist minister. I wasn’t lighting cars on fire; I just wasn’t.
Can I tell you how strange it is to look in your rearview mirror and see guys in cars tailing you?
I take cabs if I need to get somewhere or I take car service. I don’t drive, I wouldn’t mind riding a bike… People think that because you become an entertainer you gotta have this rock star thug image. I’m an artist, man. I’m going to live like an artist.
The bass player’s function, along with the drums, is to be the engine that drives the car… everything else is merely colours.
No, in Lethal Weapon I was a taxi cab driver that Mel jumps in front of the taxi and pulls me out of the car and steals the taxi. Then I did some other indie driving for some of the car sequences.
I feel like even if I was to, say, trip and fall over on the way to the car and scratch all my arm, by the time I got in the car, it would be blacked out in my head.
FYI, there are basically only three things besides a vest that will stop a bullet: a tree trunk, the engine block of a car, and a U.S. mailbox: if you are ever caught in gunfire, find one of those.
I went to Zimbabwe. I know how white people feel in America now; relaxed! Cause when I heard the police car I knew they weren’t coming after me!
The way you dress or the car you drive or what you spend is to impress other people with how, I guess, successful and rich you are. But you’re not, and you shouldn’t, and who gives a damn what other people think anyway. So, that mentality, I think, is very destructive.
I wish people would spend their money on hybrid cars.
More books, more racing and more foolishness with cars and motorcycles are in the works.
I am occasionally enraptured by Western landscape. But I don’t identify that state of mind as having to do with my own origins, having grown up in the West, although I certainly crisscrossed Nevada countless times growing up, and then as a young adult, in cars and on motorcycles.
Parisians overwhelmingly buy small cars. And it’s not because people are petite, but because fuel is drop-dead expensive. Gasoline costs more than twice as much in Paris as in New York.
I look away at car crashes, and I know people who look away at car crashes, because it makes us uncomfortable to watch other people in pain.
My dad was very successful running midgets in Texas. Then, his two drivers ran into some bad luck. People started saying that Daddy had lost his touch. That it was the cars and not the drivers. I wanted to race just to prove all those people wrong.
I don’t believe in the electric cars, but I strongly believe in hybrids.
My father’s nephew was the blues musician, Lowell Fulson. Every time he came around, he had a pretty car, a beautiful woman and a slick sharkskin suit. Believe it or not, that’s how I decided I wanted to get into music.
No action hero is more closely associated with cars than James Bond.
Whether it’s with my engineers in the team, my home life, or my friends, I don’t like things to get complicated – and one good example would be the steering wheel in my Mercedes Formula 1 car.
I like a spirituality with a God that knows how to drive a car, that knows how to take his girl to the dance club, dance all night, have a little drink, kiss the kid when they come back in and go to sleep. God doesn’t need a chauffeur – he needs to drive himself.
It’s said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. In that case, the WWE ‘creative’ team must be as crazy as a rainbow trout in a car wash.
I ride many different cars. Let’s say I would drive 200 different vehicles in a year, so it’s rather difficult to say which car or what car I ride. I love cars.
Suburban sprawl leads to social atomisation and fragmentation and is environmentally disastrous, as carbon-intensive car journeys displace local shops and replace public transport.
On a bike, being just slightly above pedestrian and car eye level, one gets a perfect view of the goings-on in one’s own town.
That’s the first sign you know you’re a Libertarian. You see the red light. You stop. You realize that there’s not a car in sight. And you put your foot on the gas.
I was born in St. Louis; I lived there for three weeks and then my father graduated from St. Louis University, so we all got in the car and split. I don’t really remember much. I grew up in Connecticut most of my life and then four years in Germany. My father worked for a helicopter company, so we went over there.
Tesla is here to stay and keep fighting for the electric car revolution.
I was a little different. I still say I’m a little different, because success to me is not having the most money, or having the biggest car or the biggest house.
I don’t want to die in a car accident. When I die it’ll be a glorious day. It’ll probably be a waterfall.
I alienated the automotive industry by saying that cars should be lightweight and compact.
A Prius is not a true hybrid, really. The current Prius is, like, 2 percent electric. It’s a gasoline car with slightly better mileage.
When we talk about Something More, it isn’t wanting a fancier car, a bigger house, or a designer dress. Something More is what we need to fill our spiritual hunger.
When I was in high school, I hid in the back seat of an old boyfriend’s car when he was out with another girl. He finally found me, but not until after he had made out with her for an hour.
I think there are more politicians in favor of electric cars than against. There are still some that are against, and I think the reasoning for that varies depending on the person, but in some cases, they just don’t believe in climate change – they think oil will last forever.
The car industry has invested a lot in hybrid, but my opinion is electric cars will take over a lot of hybrids quicker than people think now.
I don’t like twists. I don’t get much out of them. If you know two cars are about to run into each other, you don’t walk away and say, ‘Oh, I know what’s going to happen.’ You watch.
Going to church doesn’t make you any more a Christian than going to the garage makes you a car.
The car provided Americans with an enviable standard of living. You could not get a steady job with high wages and health and retirement benefits working on the General Livestock Corporation assembly line putting udders on cows.
Technological breakthroughs in energy storage will make renewable power cheap enough to use in more places and accelerate the move to electric cars and other electric transportation systems.
Now and then, when I grow nostalgic about my ocean childhood – the wauling of gulls and the smell of salt, somebody solicitous will bundle me into a car and drive me to the nearest briny horizon.
I am thankful the most important key in history was invented. It’s not the key to your house, your car, your boat, your safety deposit box, your bike lock or your private community. It’s the key to order, sanity, and peace of mind. The key is ‘Delete.’
I like the word ‘autopilot’ more than I like the word ‘self-driving.’ ‘Self-driving’ sounds like it’s going to do something you don’t want it to do. ‘Autopilot’ is a good thing to have in planes, and we should have it in cars.
At a car dealership, the person who sells the car is the hero, and also gets the commission. But if the mechanics don’t service that car well, the customer won’t return.
I have a car that I like – an Aston Martin – for Sunday drives in the country.
I never thought being the producer was being the dictator. It means being the director and being the coach. It’s a way of keeping everybody focused on the goal, and also having final say. Everybody can be in the same car, but somebody has to drive.
One person’s car is another person’s scenery.
I used to get 2000 as pocket money, and I was being offered a car and an opportunity to make lakhs, so I said a yes. I was a kid and got homesick over my 40-day schedule in Bangalore and decided that I would only do films in the South if they were 10-day roles.
They let me put the Stanley Cup in my car. I got hookups.
I’ve always been attracted to cars, and driving is a completely measurable experience: if you qualify last on the grid, you’re the slowest, and if you qualify first on the grid, you’re the fastest. So no one can say you’re slow if you’re fast and no one can say you’re fast if you’re slow.
Yes, my grandfather worked with Thomas Edison on the electric car, and he sold electric cars at the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris.
We always kept believing in ourselves and our team and the car.
When you start to automate, you start to do the self-driving thing, you make it much more efficient. When these cars go into self-driving, you start to become a robotics company.
It’s not just the kid who’s spent every penny from his job to upgrade his car to tell the world he cares about sports cars, it’s also the person driving around in a fuel-conscious hybrid electric car, because it’s more a message to the world than an effective means of saving fuel, to be quite honest.
No illusion is more crucial than the illusion that great success and huge money buy you immunity from the common ills of mankind, such as cars that won’t start.
With this film, ‘Need For Speed,’ with this, we had a blank canvas to work with. What we had to do was have fast cars, and that’s it.
A car is like a mother-in-law – if you let it, it will rule your life.
Part of my problem is that I cannot dispel the myths that have somehow accumulated over the years. Somebody writes something, it’s completely off the wall, but it gets filed and repeated until everyone believes it. For instance, I’ve read that I wear a football helmet in the car.
Chrysler builds great cars.
I don’t care about having a fancy car. I don’t have a lot of the wants and needs that a lot of people have where I would need to make a $1 million a fight.
(On seeing a former lover for the first time in years) I thought I told you to wait in the car.
I’m always in favor of more glamour. I embarrass my children, I think. I am the lady in feathers in the car pool line.
I know a lot about cars, man. I can look at any car’s headlights and tell you exactly which way it’s coming.
If you build a car, you can only sell it once. If you paint a fence, you only get paid for it once. If you create a piece of software that’s essentially free to reproduce, you can keep getting paid over and over perpetually.
My dad was always there, even though he wasn’t living in our house. He was always on the phone, always just a car ride away. Whenever he had a new recording, we would be the first to get the acetate. And it would say, in Dad’s handwriting, ‘Play it loud.’
I just feel rejuvenated in such a big way because of these race cars I get to drive.
When I think of ‘Mad Dog Time,’ I think of the fact that I got to drive fast cars all day long up in Canada. That was really fun. We were on these back roads with these great cars.
People are definitely a company’s greatest asset. It doesn’t make any difference whether the product is cars or cosmetics. A company is only as good as the people it keeps.
I think women like Ferraris. A Ferrari is everybody’s car.
We don’t need bigger cars or fancier clothes. We need self-respect, identity, community, love, variety, beauty, challenge and a purpose in living that is greater than material accumulation.
In August of 2002, I survived a car accident. Although I can still see the van speeding toward us, I cannot bring to mind the crash itself – only its aftermath.
Ikea people do not drive flashy cars or stay at luxury hotels.
My kids always perceived the bathroom as a place where you wait it out until all the groceries are unloaded from the car.
We have some worse scenarios for which we need to prepare as companies. For the moment, we’re planning for the worst, and the worst is now, and the car market is down more than 15 percent in France. There is so much uncertainty.
I’ve been smart with my money and own a property in London so I’m very happy, and I’ve got a nice car.
I think fear is what keeps us from going over the edge. I mean, as a race car driver, I don’t think what makes a good race car driver is a fearless person. I think it’s somebody that is comfortable being behind the wheel of something that’s somewhat out of control.
Every major car company is trying to figure out, ‘How do I deploy the Internet into the car? How do I get cars to talk to each other? How do I get more safety? How do I get the ownership experience to change dramatically as a result?’
If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day Weekend.
Maybe the bike is more dangerous, but the passion for the car for me is second to the bike.
That’s when it really came together for me that I was in a Bond film, to have my own spy car!
Onion rings in the car cushions do not improve with time.
I’ve always had an inquisitive mind about everything from flowers to television sets to motor cars. Always pulled them apart – couldn’t put ’em back, but always extremely interested in how things work.
Some Google employees have their self-driving vehicles take them to work. These car robots don’t look like something from ‘The Jetsons’; the driverless features on these cars are a bunch of sensors, wires, and software. This technology ‘works.’
I don’t buy fur coats or jewelry. I have old cars.
When I came in, Westerns were the big thing, so I did horse falls, transfers, bulldogs, big fights. That’s where you could really shine if you were really good at it. But then all the Westerns stopped, and I was capable of doing car stunts, motorcycle stunts and high falls. I could do it all.
I had an acting teacher tell me once that if you’re playing a car salesman, you don’t want to be an OK car salesman, you want to play the best car salesman.
Stay humble. Always answer your phone – no matter who else is in the car.
Guns do kill. Unlike cars, that is all they do.
I had to stop driving my car for a while… the tires got dizzy.
I’ve always had a fascination with cars and racing, not that I’ve ever competed.
We realized you cannot create a car by simply gathering needed components.
It’s like, once you’ve seen Tom Hanks win the Golden Globes, the Oscars, you’ve seen his wife, what kind of car he drives, when you watch his movies, you can’t fully get really lost in them.
If you had a carbon tax, you’d have less cars and more bicycles, more people getting around on foot and by public transport.
The energy of the crowd is insane. Twenty thousand people. It’s the biggest jolt of adrenaline. It’s very hard to explain. You know the old story about the woman lifting the car off her kid? It’s in that realm. You can actually hurt yourself and not know it.
I don’t actually own a car.
Now, if most Americans want to go out and buy a car, they don’t say, you know, ‘I think I’ll call the chairman of the board of Ford Motor Company and see what kind of deal we can make here.’
We’re in a giant car heading towards a brick wall and everyone’s arguing over where they’re going to sit.
I started training at a local gym in New Jersey, and the day of my high school graduation, I packed up everything in my car and moved to Coconut Creek, Florida, where I trained with one of the best gyms in the world, American Top Team.
We didn’t care about salaries and having a nice car. We just cared about science and were really ambitious.
My friends and neighbors were always fixing their cars. Soldiers who felt restless wanted to work on something, and they understood cars. Me, I like to look at cars but I was never really a mechanic.
Imagine a world where everything that can be connected will be connected – where driverless cars talk to smart transportation networks and where wireless sensors can monitor your health and transmit data to your doctor. That’s a snapshot of what the 5G world will look like.
I like fast cars, and I always have.
Electromagnetic theory and experiment gave us the telephone, radio, TV, computers, and made the internal combustion engine practical – thus, the car and airplane, leading inevitably to the rocket and outer-space exploration.
I like swimming. I like the beach. I like fast cars. I like speedboats.
I bought a lot of rubbish things that kids buy: skateboards and clothes and typical teenage stuff. And, as soon as I could, I wasted a lot of money on cars – BMW’s mostly – for myself and my family.
Faith is the substance of hope – of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. So if you can hope for it and imagine it, and keep imagining and hoping and seeing yourself driving a new car, or seeing yourself getting that job, or seeing yourself excel, seeing yourself help that person – that is faith.
My first job was working for my dad. He was a used-car dealer, and I used to wash the cars down, clean them out, and so on. I would do stuff for him pretty much every day. It was quite a good job, to be honest.
People in Tel Aviv can not imagine, but in 1990, here in Leipzig or Dresden, whoever wanted to buy a car had to wait 14 years. The East Germans worked like people in the West, but the fruits of their labor were harvested by a criminal regime.
We invented the car, and it made it easier for us to crash and die. If I gave a car to my grandfather, he would die in five minutes, while I have grown up slowly to accept speed.
In the end, you have to just pull the trigger. Trust the car, trust the brakes, just go.
The appeal of the Golden Age heroes for me is their simplicity, even their naivety – they represent the fundamental building blocks of the whole superhero genre, whether it’s a ‘super’ man able to lift cars, or a vigilante who terrorises criminals at night like Batman.
In Japan, they have TV sets in cars right now, where you can punch up traffic routes, weather, everything! You can get Internet access already in cars in Japan, so within the next 2 to 3 years it’s gonna be so crazy!
We have to use cars much more efficiently. We have to look at alternative technologies of cars such as biofuels or, even more importantly, electric cars.
In a country with millions of people and cars going everywhere, the enemy is going to get a car bomb out there once in awhile.
So I was getting into my car, and this bloke says to me ‘Can you give me a lift?’ I said ‘Sure, you look great, the world’s your oyster, go for it.’
I’m someone who’s always on the go and crazy busy, so I like to keep snacks in my car and at the office, and Cracker Jack’d is a really yummy snack that I love. I definitely am a big snacker.
Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the car, in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear.
Many kids come out of college, they have a credit card and a diploma. They don’t know how to buy a house or a car or health insurance or life insurance. They do not know basic microeconomics.
I love Land Rover Defenders. I love ’em. I love the old 90 Defender; it’s my favorite car. I just see one – even the 110 – but if I just see one of those things parked, I just stop in my tracks every time.
I don’t think that all the coal miners – or even more realistically, say, the truck drivers whose jobs may be put out by self-driving cars and trucks – they’re all going to go and become web designers and programmers.
If the car is capable of finishing eighth, then I want to get the most out of the car and put it eighth. If the car is only capable of finishing 13th to start the year, then that has to be our goal.
I like my shame straight up and honest, and nobody does it better than In-N-Out Burger. You go to In-N-Out Burger, and they ask you the most shameful question in fast food. ‘I’ll have a burger, fries and a Coke.’ ‘Will you be eating in the car?’ ‘Yeah. I think so.’
Autonomous vehicles, because they’ll be able to operate at a lower cost, will be able to pull more consumers into the Lyft network. And as you have more people switching from using their own car, they’ll be taking more rides that still require a person behind the wheel.
I wanted to race cars. I didn’t like school, and all I wanted to do was work on cars. But right before I graduated, I got into a really bad car accident, and I spent that summer in the hospital thinking about where I was heading. I decided to take education more seriously and go to a community college.
We approach people the same way we approach our cars. We take the poor kid to a doctor and ask, What’s wrong with him, how much will it cost, and when can I pick him up?
A car isn’t a classic just because it’s old. To be a classic, a car has to tell us something of its time.
Me and my partners had been stealing cars for a while.
There have been prank shows that have been really elaborate, setting up fake car accidents and burglars. For us, we wanted to strip it down completely, didn’t want to do anything that someone else couldn’t do – a lot like the Jerky Boys.
I was once in a very, very bad car accident. So my drawing arm is full of pins and platinum stuff. Occasionally it hurts. But I found that after the arm was put back together I could draw better than before. I have no idea why.
Any eyes on me – a late-night street sweeper, some dude texting in his parked car, the homeless guy talking to himself – make me feel uncomfortable when I skate. Everyone expects me to do certain things.
But to personally satisfy my own adrenalin needs, I’ve been racing cars a little bit, which has been fun.
Music is the language of the angels. You can hear just one or two chords, one or two notes of a song, and bam – you’re right back there, you’re right back in that moment, you’re back in that day, you’re back at that prom, you’re back in the car.
Shoes make an outfit; they’re like rims for a car.
Electric cars are really very cool. Air-source heat pumps are great.
I race to win. If I am on the bike or in a car it will always be the same.
