>> thank you. the pope has a new ride. it is not the pope-mobile. it's not new either. a 79-year-old priest gave this gift to the pope, a 1984 renewal. it's a 29-year-old car. it has 189,000 miles on it. and the pope accepted it.

>> and it's a manual. the pope knows how to drive a stick.

>> the vatican says he will probably drive it for short little rides around the campus.

>> security isn't so happy about this idea.

>> it's a pope-mobile. it's a mercedes.

>> the reverended says there are snow tires in the boot.
