Rubin Stars In New ‘Car Matchmaker’ Episode

For the longest time it never occurred to me that people might be judging who I was as a person by looking at my car. I LOVE my 2007 Toyota Camry. I. LOVE. IT. I’ll admit that I’m loud. I don’t mind having the floor, and dig getting attention. It’s how I was as a kid and it makes sense that my job at KROQ requires me to talk. But I never put much thought into a car- especially in Los Angeles where I feel that if your car doesn’t leave you stranded, IT’S A GOOD CAR!

I’m a lot of things but I’ve never been called BORING. My Camry IS boring. It’s white. There’s some dings, the interior is…um…tope? I dunno and again, I don’t care. Point A to point B transportation is what I’m interested in. I find beauty in being under the radar when I’m in my car. Again, It’s Los Angeles and I just don’t see the practicality of having an expensive car when I can spend the $ on a new surfboard and a trip to Hawaii instead. I see much nicer cars in the shop, getting towed, and taking up two parking spots at the mall. It’s just not me.

But I have been told many times that once I drive a nice car, I’ll change my mind.

Spike Feresten (who produced and wrote the “Soup Nazi” episode of Seinfeld and writing for David Letterman among a zillion other awesome credits) hosts Esquire Networks Car Matchmaker. Spike is a car NUT and knows everything there is to know about “Awakening the Inner Car Guy” which is the title of our episode.  I test-drive some VERY nice cars, learn a few things, and decide if it’s time to get something new.

Watch Spike encourage me, shame me, educate me, and crack me up Tuesday @ 9/8 Central on Esquire TV!
