What is that red car with the gull wing doors in the garage, in back of the yellow C5 ?

@jkoya It’s the original Hardcastle and McCormack COYOTE “beauty” car used for close-up shots in Seasons 2-3 (1985-86). It’s a customized McLaren body on a 1981 DeLorean with 11k miles. You have very good eyes!

I loaned a bunch of money to the son of Jay Ohrberg (in Guinness World Record Book for building the world’s longest - 102-ft - limousine) to start up a comedy club. A year later (1996), I got none of my cash back, and he defaulted on the loan. So I then got the three vehicles pledged as collateral on the loan: Coyote car, 32-ft Ferrari F40 limo, and a 39-ft Mercedes limo with heart shaped hot tub! It all sounds great now, but it wasn’t fun then (as I spent many years paying back the bank for the comedy club loan). But NOW it is pretty cool to own the 1 of 1 DeLorean Coyote that I used to watch on TV as a teenager :cool:

If you’re still driving that yellow NSX, you also have one impressive and iconic car! I rented a 1998 NSX (from RedHotCars.com) to race up a mountain outside Reno (the annual Virginia City Hill Climb; no idea if it still takes place). That NSX was absolutely amazing as I pushed it past 9,000 rpm and she just kept thrilling on that switchback road! :)

Yes !! I still have the Yellow NSX - Thanks for the kind words !! It's still a fun drive and has that built in theft deterrent of a 6 speed manual transmission (lots of people I know can't drive a manual)......

Just did a DIY Plasti Dip project on the wheels to see if I'd like the color change before permanently going darker. I know I could photoshop something but for $70 all in I'd rather see the color on the wheels and live with it for a bit. That's the great thing about Plasti Dip, you can always just rip it off, and go back to what you had before.

New Setup (lowered, chrome delete, metallic dark grey dipped wheels):
