^ That vid reminds me that Seinfeld was the weakest character in Seinfeld.

I know all the pot holes, every bump in the road (and there are lots of them!) and I am just not comfortable taking the car on that highway. Hats off to Seinfeld for doing it!
I've driven both of my 993s as well as my autocross appliance on 800/550 lb springs on FDR dozens of times. It's no worse than any other bombed-put NYC road if you ask me.

Good for you! My 993 is too low for the pot holes and bumps on the FDR. Especially Northbound right past the Tri-Boro bridge.

Oh, Ilko, my autocross appliance is lower, I can assure you. And first 993 was on H&Rs and HDs at RS+10 height. Pretty bone jarring, especially on the cobblestones of Meat Packing district where we lived for a few months.

NYC (or Boston for that matter) is not really designed for any car. Save maybe a full size pickup. I've driven a rental Dodge Ram for a day in NYC. Enjoyed myself tremendously, especially jupming curbs

Drove the 993 on the FDR on Friday and survived...

I'll be thinking about these for awhile ...

Carl Reiner on Mel Brookes: 'So the second time, I took him back a little further ... I mean this guy was at The Crucifixion ...'

Seinfeld on Comedy: 'Talking about comedy is like talking about sex. I mean, you can do any fancy dive you want, it's till just a foot and a half of water ..'

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee has proved its worth as more than just your average web series. Jerry Seinfeld acts almost as an ambassador to the comedy world, bringing us along to spend a few hours with the likes of funnymen that include Larry David, Ricky Gervais, and Alec Baldwin. With cars like a vintage Volkswagen Beetle, Mercedes-Benz 280 SL and Austin Healy 3000, the mode of transport to said coffee is always old and always awesome. The season finale of CiCGC proves to be the most interesting episode yet, as Jerry is joined by his Seinfeld co-star of nine years, Michael Richards, a.k.a. Kramer.

The two set off for java in a 1962 Volkswagen Double Cab, and everything seems normal. Kra – pardon us, Richards shows Jerry sites such as the partially crumbling Getty Villa, and then things take a turn for the strange.

A graphic pops up early on in the clip, informing us that "Certain scenes from this episode seem like they were set up. They were not." That is in reference to a pair of occurrences in the short that were both absurd and serendipitous. We won't spoil it for you.

Also making this video worth watching is the fact that these two professionals who shared a workplace for nearly a decade spent time pondering over the methods they used when they were at their peak. Additionally, Richards offers up an explanation for the incident at the Laugh Factory that appeared both genuine and eloquent. Yeah, it is one of the more downright interesting videos you'll watch all week.
