FACT: The "Big Three" have kept car designs (see above) that use no gas under wraps since the stone age...
Glenn: Let me go to William in Toronto. Hello, William. It's globalism day. Welcome to the program.
Caller: Hello, Glenn.
Glenn: How are you?
Caller: I'm great. As a matter of fact, I'm so great that you can't believe it. You found your man with the bumper sticker. As a matter of fact, I got two John McCain bumper stickers.
Glenn: You have two John McCain bumper stickers?
Glenn: And you live in Toronto Canada?
Caller: Actually I live in rural Canada, 50 miles north of Toronto and that's country managed to get the bumper stickers, because the Obama campaign somehow got a hold of all the McCain vote for McCain stickers and shipped them to northern Canada and they're floating around here all over the place, but there's not reason I called. I'm really not into politics at all, but I have
Glenn: Wait a minute. Hold on just a second. Wait a minute. You're not really into politics at all
Glenn: But you live in Canada
Glenn: And you have a McCain bumper sticker on your car
Caller: Yeah. Well, you see, the opposition to John McCain has forced me into taking a political position.
Glenn: You know in Canada
Glenn: In Canada you can't vote for the American President?
Caller: I know, but having said that, sir
Caller: I'm sure that things can be done to influence the outcome of the election and if I were to tell you
Caller: If you if I were to tell you right now Mr. Beck
Caller: that come November election day, the headline is going to be McCain wins by land slide, would you think I'm off my rocker?
Glenn: Oh, I already do.
Caller: That is perfect because I'm telling you, that's the kind of attitude I need, because I know
Glenn: Hold on just a second. Wait a minute. Are you running the global shadow John McCain campaign?
Caller: But, but, but I have an idea.
Caller: For America.
Caller: And thereby
Caller: reluctantly drag Canada along with you guys, the second and the greatest American industrial revolution that you have ever seen and now you're really going to think I'm nuts.
Glenn: No, I don't think I can go any further.
Caller: So and I can tell you how we're going to do this.
Glenn: Okay. Go ahead.
Caller: We are going to build
Glenn: Hang on just a second. Ladies and gentlemen, you are hearing the voice of William. May I call you Bill?
Caller: You may call me Bill and I don't know you well enough yet to call you anything else other than Mr. Beck.
Glenn: No, no. You can call me Glenn if I can call you Bill because I'm a friend of Bill. Bill in Toronto is going to tell us how about the industrial revolution that is going to change the tide and make a landslide for John McCain. Go ahead.
Caller: Okay. Do you realize that the big 3 have the technology on their plate right now to take any of their domestic cars and make it produce 100 miles per gallon with no research and no development needed. The research and development has been done.
Glenn: That is incredible. I did not know that. Now, you got that, what, 60 miles north of Toronto?
Glenn: Okay. Tell me about it.
Caller: Actually it fell out of the sky like man in a from heaven.
Glenn: You've got to be kidding my. Call I wish I was, but I'm glad I'm not.
Glenn: I'm glad you're not, too. Tell me about it.
Caller: Because here's how I'm going to make that happen.
Caller: I'm going to take a domestic car.
Glenn: A domestic car.
Caller: Anyone. I doesn't matter. Let's say tiger woods, he drives that Buick, right?
Glenn: Yes. Now, your domestic or my domestic? Canadian car?
Caller: No. We've got to take an American car because that's who's going to build this car and we're going to, first of all, throwaway that gasoline general.
Glenn: Throw it away.
Caller: And we're going to put in a diesel engine.
Glenn: Diesel engine. Let me ask you, Bill I don't mean to micromanage here. Why don't we start with a diesel car. Then we don't have to buy a gasoline general and throw that away and go out and buy a diesel engine. Let's just simply because I don't mean to throw you off, to simplify, let's buy a diesel car.
Caller: The reason we're not going to buy a diesel car is because they don't build them good enough yet.
Glenn: Damn them.
Caller: And damn the big 3 for not coming up with this and making me come up with it. Now we've got this diesel engine in front. We put in behind it a six speed electronic control transmission, which they have.
Caller: And so for the engine let me go back to the engine.
Glenn: Okay. Hang on. I've got to take a break. I want to stay here and then we're going to take down the big 3, Larry, Curly, and Mo. We'll do that here in just a second, with Bill in Toronto who says he can solve it and John McCain will win in a land slide. He's calling from Canada. So, I won't let him wait too long because I know long distance charges are crazy. So, hang on just a second. Bill in Canada.
(Out at 9:41 a.m.)
Glenn: All right. We're with Bill in Toronto. He's taken a gasoline engine, thrown it out, bought a diesel engine, put it in, then he put an electronic transmission in it. Go ahead, Bill. Now what do we do to make John McCain win?
Caller: Oh, well, that is so secret that I couldn't tell you on the air. If I did, I would have to kill you.
Caller: Okay? But I'm going to continue with my 100 miles per gallon car.
Glenn: Okay. Go ahead quickly.
Caller: Okay. So, we take that Buick that originally comes off the factory floor at 2,500 pounds or 3,000 pounds and we reduce the weight of the entire vehicle, engine and everything included, into around 1,200 pounds.
Glenn: I have this idea do you fill the interior of the car with helium?
Caller: No, but what you do is you take out all of the seats in the car.
Caller: Have you ever lifted a car seat, Glenn?
Glenn: They're so heavy.
Caller: Yeah. Well, what if I told you they have the technology to make each and every one of those car seats 10 pounds and be more comfortable than what you've got now?
Glenn: Okay. So, did you try to helium thing and it didn't work?
Caller: I had 350 helium balloons in it and the tires went flatter. Don't ask me why.
Glenn: We're going to place the engines and we're going to replace the car seats
Caller: Yeah. We take the spare tire and throw it away because we're going to run flat tires. You don't need a spare.
Glenn: Got it.
Caller: And aerodynamics.
Glenn: Uh huh.
Caller: We're going to make this car like a silver arrow.
Glenn: Have you thought about making it look like a hot dog, because I believe I'm just I don't know a lot about aerodynamics, but I am a thinker. Have you ever seen the wiener mobile? If you take the bun off that thing, I don't thing there is any drag on that wiener mobile.
Caller: Well, that is the idea of the aerodynamics on this car.
Glenn: I knew it would be.
Caller: Is to take every single wind resistant item off of this are car.
Caller: Well, let's take when you look through your window, what do you look through? So, what if your rearview mirror is now mounted inside your car and you have a rear looking camera that is projecting the rear picture onto your rearview mirror that is sitting inside your car?
Glenn: Got it. Got it.
Caller: No wind resistance.
Glenn: Have you thought about having 10 pound people in the back seat that could just look out the rear window and tell you what would be there?
Caller: Yeah, but they would be too short. They wouldn't be able to see.
Glenn: We can build a 5 pound seat, like a booster seat.
Caller: (Laugher.) Mr. Beck, I love your show. I believe that you are the true American patriot.
Glenn: I believe you pay may be the true Canadian patriot.
Caller: What I'm going to ask you now is simple. Have one of your producers take those ideas I put together.
Glenn: And build the car this weekend?
Caller: No, no.
Caller: My last item, my last item about this car and then I'm done.
Caller: General Motors, Chrysler, or Ford could start building this car at Monday at 8:00 a.m. in the morning and have it on the road by 4:00 in the afternoon.
Glenn: Holy cow. 100 miles per gallon.
Caller: They have the technology, Glenn, but it's like when you're in the forest and you can't see the forest for the trees.
Caller: They've got too much technology and stuff out there they're working on. They can't see this simple answer in front of their nose they have already created.
Glenn: You should create this car.
Caller: These guys are brilliant engineers.
Glenn: You should create this car.
Caller: I have, on paper, and I have
Glenn: No, no, no. I don't mean on paper. I mean you should actually put it on the road.
Caller: No. Do you know what?
Caller: I don't have time for that and the reason I don't have time for that is because I'm afraid that Obama will get elected before I can put this car on the road.
Glenn: But you can pit on the if GM can do it by Monday, you can do it by Wednesday?
Caller: No. For me to do it, it would take me six weeks because I have to order everything special.
Glenn: Oh, six weeks. Damn it! Okay. William, thank you very much. Now, on this aerodynamic car, can you put the John McCain sticker on the back?
Caller: No. And I no room. The bumper is too arrow dynamic.
Glenn: Okay. All right. Well, there's pros and cons to everything, I guess. Thank you so much, William, for calling from Toronto. Let us know in six weeks if you have this car. We would sure like to see it. Here's our number, 1 888 727 BECK.
