Conan O'Brien Is The Hoopty King, With His Taurus SHO

Conan O'Brien I'm With Coco

Twitter megaceleb Conan O'Brien clearly doesn't have enough to do while he ramps up for his forthcoming TBS talk show.

Call us jealous of Steve Kroft, but we're green with envy that he got a ride in O'Brien's ratty 1992 Ford Taurus SHO for a 60 Minutes segment that aired this past Sunday. Not so much of his solo time with Coco, but for the car, which will probably go down in hoopty history.

The details: there's a 1992 Massachusetts inspection sticker, long since expired, on the windshield. The car's coated with dirt and grime--comically or really, we're not sure. Then there's the brilliant driver-side mirror that needs a little Gorilla glue and it'll be good as new, swear to God.

O'Brien says for the first few years of the Late Night show, this was his actual car. He would mention it to guests like Ice Cube, and they would...laugh. We have our doubts, but more to the point--doesn't TBS pay enough to get the car brought up to California code? Or even to get it washed?

Sure, Jay has dozens of cool classic cars--but can you blame us for being on Team Coco now?
