Pauline‘s favorite vehicle isn’t your run-of-the-mill Mustang or Corvette, either.
“A Dodge Daytona — ’69 Dodge Daytona,” Diesel tells Jimmy Kimmel. “She fights for it whenever the kids are playing with cars. And I go, ‘Pauline, where’s your favorite car?’ She goes over to the Dodge Daytona, lifts it up, and brings it to me.”
“What color is the Dodge Daytona?” Kimmel asks.

“My daughter’s two favorite colors — she’s 2½ — are purple and brown,” Kimmel says.
“They love saying, ‘pur-ple, pur-ple,’ ” Diesel mocks in a toddler voice.
“Maybe that’s what it is,” Kimmel agrees.
“But is there something wrong with a kid whose favorite color is brown?” the host asks.
“Maybe, maybe,” Diesel says as the audience laughs.
