in my car.

It's one think you should know about me.

Well put the tyres on.

You got about five minutes?

- Yeah.

Hey, do you wanna see something?

Yeah.

okay.

You did good.

We had a good time.

Me too.

Sorry, if I put you on the spot or anything.

It's okay.

I'm not doing anything this weekend.

If you wanna go out or something.

Don't worry about these bumps and bruises.

Thats easily replaceable.

We coat a paint on there with sponsors detail.

Look at the thread on the tyre,

still good huh, we are in business.

You paid 300 fucking grand for this piece of shit?

I paid for it.

Out of my own pocket.

This is just the shell.

It's the inside that counts.

Not the outside.

Right, Shannon?

You are correct sir.

F*ck that shit. If I paid 300 for something.

I want everybody to see it.

Of course you do.

Now this.

That is one motherfucking fine ass pussy mobile,

motherfucker!

Damn!

Shannon, sell him that car.

He won't be able to find a pussy

in a whorehouse.

You know what?

This car will make you even good looking.

How's it going?

When's our first race?

uhh, pretty soon.

You gonna be ready?

I hope so.

huh...I hope so.

Hey no false modesty.

I got a lot of money on this.

Did Shannon ever tell you how we met?

I used to produce movies.

In the 80's.

Kinda like action films and sexy stuff.

One critic called them 'European'.

I thought they were shit.

Anyway he arrange all the cars for me.

Did all the stunts.

I liked him. I like having him around.

Eventhough, he'd overcharge the shit out of me.

His next business venture.

He got involved with some of Nino's friends.

They didn't go for the overcharging bit.

They broke his pelvis.

He's never had a lot of luck.

The reason I'm telling you this is,

He's got a lot invested in you.

So do I.

So. You need anything...
