A car for every purse and purpose. Americans are the only people in the world known to me whose status anxiety prompts them to advertise their college and university affiliations in the rear window of their automobiles. Auto racing is boring except when a car is going at least 172 miles per hour upside down. Back in the mid-1970s, we adopted some fairly ambitious goals to improve efficiency of our cars. What did we get? We got a tremendous boost in efficiency. But my passion is racing cars. It's what I like to do in my off time. But to personally satisfy my own adrenalin needs, I've been racing cars a little bit, which has been fun. Car designers are just going to have to come up with an automobile that outlasts the payments. Drive-in banks were established so most of the cars today could see their real owners. Environmentalists have a very conflicted relationship with their cars. Family trips to Yellowstone and to what are now national parks in Southern Utah, driving the primitive roads and cars of that day, were real adventures. Fast cars are my only vice. I admit to wasting my life messing around with fast cars and motorcycles. I had more clothes than I had closets, more cars than garage space, but no money. I had never been able to get a car that said how much I cared about the environment until I drove electric. I had to stop driving my car for a while... the tires got dizzy. I have a need to make these sorts of connections literal sometimes, and a vehicle often helps to do that. I have a relationship to car culture. It isn't really about loving cars. It's sort of about needing them. I have about 40 cars, of which 25 to 30 are what you might call serious. I liken myself to Henry Ford and the auto industry, I give you 90 percent of what most people need. I love fast cars... and to go too fast in them. I never rode in an automobile until I was 12.
