Dick Van Dyke

BACK ON THE ROAD

After Last Car Exploded

8/27/2013 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

082613_dick_van_dyke_launch_v3Dick Van Dyke tells TMZ ... outside of "being a little crispy around the edges," he's perfectly fine after last week's exploding car incident. In fact, he's already back behind the wheel of a new whip.

DVD was in Calabasas yesterday -- in a brand spankin' new Jaguar (a loaner) -- and the 87-year-old was still joking about the frightening moments when a Good Samaritan pulled him from his burning car on the side of the 101 Freeway.

"Well, I needed a little PR anyway," Van Dyke said.

Dick tells us he learned one big lesson from the incident -- a lesson that will probably restore your faith in humanity.

So watch the clip ... unless you hate humanity.

Here is a man who actually is a star, and just as nice as he can be, unlike the garbage that is being thrust upon the public today. Mr. West comes to mind.

How can nobody ask him why it happened or why they think it hap.? That is beyond beliveable. How can you paps be so incredibly lame and void of life and curiosity. Arent you at least a bit curious ? Asking him some random sh*t and looking for things to talk about. But not the only interesting thing about the whole experience, why it freaking happened... ffs

Mr. Van Dyke is a kind, humorous and talented man. I hope he is around for a few more years and continues to enjoy his life. He is a real class act. He's given me at least 60 years of laughter.

What is up with the hipster in the background wearing a hoodie with the hood pulled up? The temperature had to be in the mid 80s yesterday when this picture was taken.


If anyone can enlighten me as to why this guy was wearing a hoodie in such warm weather, I would appreciate it. I can't figure it out.
