After tearing up over Aretha Franklin’s flawless rendition of Carol King’s 1967 single "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," President Barack Obama is shifting gears—literally. The Commander in Chief kicked off the seventh season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld and he seemed super excited to get behind the wheel. As it turns out, a friend of Obama’s grandfather owned the same kind of car and the president really wanted one for himself. 

Go behind the scenes of @JerrySeinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with special guest, @POTUS!

The car in question is a 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe and you can catch the full episode here. Highlights include Obama saying he’s a hit with the 0-8 demographic because he thinks his ears are big and make him look like a cartoon character, and declaring his massive love for nachos. Oh, and the Head of State admits he misses his anonymity a little bit. 

The Crackle series allows Seinfeld to show off his love for classic cars while chatting with best in comedy. Past guests have included Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Larry David, Will Ferrell, Steve Martin and Jim Carrey.
