Dick Van Dyke — BACK ON THE ROAD … After Last Car Exploded

Exclusive 082613_dick_van_dyke_launch_v3Dick Van Dyke tells our sources … 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.
