Hank Watson's Garage Hour podcast
02.04.12 (MP3): Tech Zep Junkyard Gearhead Fanmail Star Wars Off-Road Talk Radio! HOB LA, Miata Parts, Superbowl + Star Wars Fails, SERE Training, Dust & Rent, Counting Daves, Lozeau Harleys, Plus Domino's Pizza ala Superfan Tristain

Hank Watson's Garage Hour: the creek for which you forgot your paddle. One of those excellent 100%-everything shows, with tons of great things that gearheads dig...  off-roading, Army goading, Cutlass smoting, nerd versus geeking, fanmail reading, pizza eating, Patriot fleeting, Jar Jar beating, tech meeting, geek freaking, John Paul Jones meeting and junkyard tweeting.  Without the tweeting.  Oh, and Led Zeppelin.

Beyond the usual awesomesauce, there's David Lozeau's latest Harley-Davidson creation, Dirty Dave's off-roading psuedo-experience, the overall number of "D"s and "Dave"s in the Garage Hour studio, the geek-nerd Venn diagram, Smog Mike's super-shooting son, lots of great email comments from our listeners, and that dumb Audi vampire ad during last year's superbowl.  It's all followed by some serious Star Wars trashing, a neat new USB outlet from Newer Tech (we'll install and report), some looks at House of Blues Los Angeles shows, and Lozeau's Hard Rock art show (complete with $20 drinks - screw that noise).  It all ends at the junkyard.  Of course.

06.29.09: Classic! 4th-Ever Show, w/ Formula 1 Rich Guy Fights, Building Toyota Trucks, Venture Bros., Tow Straps, Backwoods Rescues, Slow Rangers, Stupid Subie Moments, Plus NASCAR Road Racing & San Diego Rallycross

Old Garage Hours sound so different from the new ones - more car and truck (which is good), less guns and beer (which is not good).  Oh, and you can tell we don't have the rhythm yet.  That's okay - we were almost as good at making it up back then as we are now.

This one starts with pointing out that the last thing awesome about NASCAR is the road-course races, and proceeds to the anti-NASCAR, local SCCA-sanctioned rallycross.  Other horsepowery goodness includes the classic "Nissan Partrol" [sic] hillclimb video, the SoCal Euro show we missed, junkyards and Formula 1 owners (bickering like a clutch of old hens).  Then, once all the horsepower is gone, weh chat about modding Toyota trucks and 4Runners for off-road adventure (see? they have no power) and play with lift recipies and tales of rescuing idiots from themselves.  Friends of the show innclude Bilstein, Downey, Rubicon, SCCA, ARB, TRD and the junkyard.

Beer Mike joins host Justin Fort for this episode, so, of course, there's beer and cartoons, plus a prank call from cohost Grizzly Chris.
