No one else was doing fanbois photos so I thought I'd leave him alone.

But seriously, he's a huge car guy, and really into vintage stuff too. It would be freakin' awesome to have enough $$ to indulge this hobby. He seems like a less dorky version of Jay Leno.

I wonder if he's planning on running the Rolex 24 again this year. I know for a while they were racing for Alzheimer's awareness in the "Highway to Help" car.

The rumor around the paddock is his exodus from the recent AC/DC tour was not hearing related at all. More of a culture/disagreement issue. The bandmembers have been together longer than most marriages.

Case in point: have you heard a loud race car?

Did he ever actually run the 24? The time I know about he was scheduled to drive but his "management" pulled him because they were on tour. No doubt he's capable...

He had a weekly show (Cars that Rock IIRC) on one of the cable channels, but I haven't seen it in several months. It was darn interesting (and amusing!). He did a darn nice job on the show.
