Hank Watson's Garage Hour podcast
02.27.10 (MP3): Classic! Screw Tibet & Free Yourself? Anti-Stupid Traffic Freakout or Top Gear Hilux Destruction? Replace Injectors or Carnivalé at Lost Abbey? Beck's Music or Scientology? B-17 Strafer or C-130 Spectre? Beretta or Glock? Zaphod or Homer?

How about some Grade "A" Garage Hour goodness?  With the bad weather, bad drivers, bad habits and bad injectors, this one's got it all.  Or, possibly some sort of infection, but hey, what's a contagious disease between cohosts?  Just drink some white Bronco and take some good beer, some good music (The Faint or Beck?), some good cartoons (South Park versus The Simpsons), a good party (Carnivalé at Lost Abbey) and some ill-gotten gains from misappropriating small arms in the Iraqi combat theater, and it's good gearhead radio.

Oh, and as if that's not enough to blow up your M92, there's always the age-old argument of Beretta versus Glock, Ballahs with Dollahs at Barona Drags, Second Amendment Clothing, good soundtracks for bad movies, train wrecks, our ad girl's sexy Kiwi gag reel, Toyota on a bad day and Zaphod Bebblebrox.

If you'd prefer to enjoy this fine piece of show in the high-brow plastic-fantastic wonderment of M4A bliss, just search the same episode date without an "MP3" tag.  You're welcome.

01.03.16 (MP3): New Cars & Trucks 2016! Garage Hour Does San Diego Auto Show, w/ 4R TRD Pro, Diesel Colorado, Jeeps, the Slingshot, Best & Worst, BMW VS BMW, Big Engine VS Big Fat, Reality VS Hybrids, Tesla VS Warranties, + Where's Our Flying Cars?

Ultra-live new car and truck report from the finest little-big city auto show - it's the Garage Hour goons versus the San Diego Auto Show.  Recording live from the floor of the best looking S.D. display in a decade, Hostus Maximus Justin Fort and Majid from Global Source Remarketing (he sells used trucks, folks, lots of 'em) point their remarkably advanced understanding of the auto industry, its consumers and its wherewithal at the cars, trucks, electrics, diesels, innovators and relegators at the show, and killer gearhead talk results.  Yes, have some.

What'cha like?  We've got it: Lotus Elises, LS'd Chevy SSs and Duramaxed Colorados, Jeep TJs and CJs, the 4Runner TRD Pro, interior quality, Civics, brake fires, station wagons, the BMW 540i, Top Gear versus the Hilux, Dodge versus Ford work vans, coil versus leaf, rattle-can versus 4R, manual versus auto, Subaru CVT versus driving satisfaction, electricity versus ego, M3 versus M4, the Slingshot (from Canuckistan!), Tesla and Lincoln prototypes, hydrogen versus government, and where the hell are our flying cars? (you promised).

There's plenty of the usual Garage Hour subterfuge, so don't worry.  We take a fine slice at the auto unions, diesel repowering, yard work, rental adventure, overpriced San Diego, overvalued Chargers, engineers versus effectiveness, and of course, bear attacks.

If you'd prefer the high-fi version of this fine piece of sheeeeow, grab the same date without the "MP3" tag.
