Hank Watson's Garage Hour podcast

In a remarkable feat of staying on-topic, the Garage Hour assembled the Gearhead Consultancy and actually managed to talk about their favorite gifts for Those Who Turn Wrenches - for the whole show!

The Diesel Ayatollah breezed in for this in-garage episode.  Grab a mental wrench: goodies for the geekiest and greasiest, magazines in the (vapid) age of the web, Brock Yates, the Fummings, paying attention while driving (with #foundonroadawesome), and the Gift That Shall Not Be Named.

Because Garage Hour.

Garage Hour reload: the Poseur List.  Everything you do to your ride that guarantees you're not cool (or just an idiot).  Worse - even if you aren't a schmuck, these are the build decisions make you look like one.  Everything from anti-tuning to bad towing, parts fighting parts, and stiff lifts, your embarrassments are cataloged.  We're here to help.

In pure Garage Hour tradition, Dirty Dave and Grizzly Chris ensured we got lost in other stuff - Greedo shot in the speedo, Blazing Haley, the new Pizza Port (now liquor), falling down drunk in your own front yard, and a chat with Tuna Pete from Barona Dragstrip.  Why not?  It's the Garage Hour.

The Garage Hour: we've been waiting for you.

What started out as the Garage Hour's famous "Gearhead Gifting" special rapidly veered off-course into fighting men (from dive-bombing presidents to white-sheet navy) and their weapons (from quad-.50 M-16 half-tracks to clip-pinging Garands), the toilet librarian, the growing hazard posed by a desperate Chinese military in the South Pacific, Silkworms, Phalanxes, the brown note and sage words from .45 Phil.

Gringo Rich and the Diesel Ayatollah join the fracas at Protector Brewery, where the Gearhead Consultancy sipped the lasted batch of Defender IPA, Baghdad Special and West Coast while lamenting the absence of The Juice and Pineapple Grenade (the beer).

Ahhhh, Garage Hour.  Just the scratch for your #FBlackFriday itch - we've got standard-issue gen-Z and hipster harassment (you poor phone-zombie shopping fools), plus a whole lot of real-people stuff like duck, pheasant, goose and crane hunting (#skysteak), beers and drinking in France, shop-vacs, axis spins and the introduction of Chooch from Subie Stickers.

Hostus Maximus Justin Fort and gun-building machine Gringo Rich (#militaryhaircuts) also jumped on for this episode from Protector Brewery, which means whether you're proud of your #meatonastick or just want to #wandyourjerky, we've got your #gearheadfix.

No fartin' around here: straight from the garage, the Gearhead Consultancy discusses its newfound free-to-we old-school monster Snap-On toolbox, as well as how to haul it without murdering all the people in traffic so unfortunate as to be in our rear-view.

The Garage Hour goons also dig into toolbox values, weight, dimensions, cleaning, lifting and unloading, how many guys it takes (and how many beers), craftsmanship, theft, moving, and how many urban campers can live in one.

More goodies: Baja 1000 border fun, tales of rock, roll, techno and new shows, Duramax versus EcoBoost, "real" versus Chinese straps, Found On Road Awesome, and what Navy guys call Iranian speedboats.

It's all ball-bearings nowadays, unless you're a gearhead on the Garage Hour: too many projects + not enough arms = late uploads.  Thanks for waiting around (we're worth it).

This one's a late-night special - Chef Jeff and Gringo Rich support Hostus Maximus Justin Fort's occupation of Protector Brewery's tasting room in the Beeralani Maker's District, but that's the only part that followed the plan.  From bleeding (brakes) to gears and axles (broken), the Consultancy immediately veers off into Nine Inch Nails, old motorcycles and snowblowers, the Belushi Effect and the 17-Year Old Effect.

The goons kidnapped Amanda from Protector to chat up their new brews too, including a S.M.A.S.H. named C2, a brut called Brutus and a fruit ale dubbed Berserker.  She knows more about beer than we do, plus she's pretty: yes, have some!

This is the inaugural Garage Hour Dude Food Chili Showoff, live from Protector Brewery.  This is also gearhead awesomeness.

#1:  Do you like chili?  We made four.  Ruben from Smoke 'N Aces' watermelon chili beat Chef Jeff's pork cushion chili verde for "People's Choice" by one vote.  Mr. G's salsa and two-bean chili and Hostus Maximus Justin Fort's two-meat chilis were popular, but could not measure up to the professional chefs.

#2:  Do you remember where you were on 9/11?  We take a serious moment for reflections on where we were, why we re-enlisted, how we felt and how many Tomcats we scrambled on 9/11.

#3:  Do you want your multibillion-dollar car company to be headed by a pot-smoking vampire?  We debate Elon "Caligula" Musk and his progress in circling the drain.

Because we're awesome, that ain't all, folks.  Direct from Pizza-Wrench Monkey Oven Brewing, there's also halal VS anti-halal chili, why 3-D printed guns are a First Amendment before they're a Second Amendment issue, and sorry about the delayed upload - server issues.

You can't get this kind'a gearhead awesomesauce without a license... or a warrant...  The Garage Hour goons assembled at Location A for an hour of hard parts and broken bits.  The Diesel Ayatollah and Gringo Rich performed a complete Harbor Freight compressor teardown during the show, much to Hostus Maximus Justin Fort's chagrin (poor bastard was trying to run a show...).

Once the fleer diaphragm and hoseplot dialopter were adjusted to spec, however, it was all trucks and rocks and bonk, with extensive tales from the depths of high-mountain Colorado.  Nothing like a weeklong diet of boulders, scree fields, knobby tires, murderous hyraxes and brewery after brewery to make the Ouray-Silverton-Durango off-roading mecca go like a champ - one of the best FJ Summits in memory.  Thanks to Rock Hound Off-Road and Marlin Crawler for making getting there (and get-back) possible.

Breweries, wineries, meaderies, cideries, sakeries, distilleries, cofferies, salseries - it must be another episode in the Beeralani Makers' District with Protector Brewing.

The Garage Hour goons link up with Protector point-man and retired SEAL Sean Hannity...  sorry, Haggerty...  for an hour of fine sippin' with good beers, including the Beast, Pineapple Grenade IPA - .45 Phil's new favorite - and Punisher Pils.  Haggerty, .45 and a Canadian tourist also trade tales of things they brewerd and drank in Iraq, including Protector's first beer, a heff brewed in Ramadi called the Baghdad Special.  Then the cohosts kung-fu fight over fresh, delicious Mister G's salsa (courtesy of Mike the Duck).

From there, it's trucks and guns - Hostus Maximus and the Diesel Ayatollah go to town on trail-prep for a big run to Colorado's highlands, and everyone shares stories of their favorite assault rifle (It's a trick; get it? Anything you assault anyone with is an assault thing. Hit somebody with your phone and it's an assault phone. Hit someone with a meatball and you're an Italian grandmother. Grammar: use it right.)

Garage Hour reload?  Yes, please.  The gearhead goons are joined in-studio by Colonel Rick Powell, who was (at the time) candidate for Califzuela's 78th Assembly District.

This episode explores Col. Powell's thoughts on the threat posed by California's bureaucracy to small business and regular folk, as well as DeTomaso Panteras, teaching kids to ride, boxers versus briefs, off-road gates and why access is important, and how common sense can be worn as a shield against the kleptobureaucracy of KA.

If you're a gearhead, a shooter, a vinyl fan, a brewer, if you like music or computers or old stereo equipment or hand-loading or woodworking, you're a geek - you dig your hobbies a little more than the average Joe.  Congrats, you're one of us, and that makes you a target of the bureaucracy.  Time to protect yourself by voting right: the Garage Hour is here to help.

Join .45 Phil (That Which Goes Bump in the Night), Silent Craig (Official Show Pencil Artist) and Hostus Maximus Justin Fort for an hour of details on the votes presented in choice-flooded San Diego (and why all those choices are a type of tyranny in their own right).

Remember, the only thing worse than making a bad choice is to make no choice at all (which is technically a bad choice too).

These no-notes episodes are candy when they go right.  This Garage Hour reload has all the good stuff - NASCAR road racing, Colorado 4Runner Jamboree, camping on the hotel's lawn, cute chicks from New Zealand, engine racism, the cyclops eye, 3.55s versus 3.73s, old motocrossers trying new trucks, the Subaru Brat ("Trucknically, it's a car."), and ballahs with dollahs.

Tourist cohost Hoosier Eric ("Corn is always interesting.") joins Black Ryna (his first appearance) and Hostus Maximus Justin Fort for an hour of good trucks (with 40psi in the Goodyears), good parts (so long as you know your limitations), good off-roading (so long as you're not stuck behind a bunch'a dicks in Jeeps), good saves (don't forget your cranium) and good blowoff valves (if you like metal-on-metal violence).

You head out to your favorite trailhead for a fun day-run and BLAMMO! There's a yuge tank gate. Who installed it? Who locked it? Why's it there? Is the universal key enough to open that door or will you need an actual tank?

What's already a big problem in San Diego and the third-world kleptocracy of Kalifornistan can become a problem for you because your loss of access is driven by a mindset and an agenda, not real issues - look out, cats and kitties, THIS is watermelon environmentalism. The Garage Hour goons take a stab at this thorny issue and try to spur folks to pay attention. Recorded at the show's home brewery (Helix Brewing in La Mesa), the good gearheads at the Garage Hour might not raise everyone's alarms, but they're sure to raise some glasses...

The special guest-host on this episode is Morgan Murtaugh, who's running for the 53rd congressional district in central-southern San Diego county, and guess what, boys and girls? She likes guns.

Don't let the delay fool you - the Garage Hour goons have been up to their necks in parts (the good kind and the bad), but you can only do so much.  The Diesel Ayatollah, Dustin V2 (Mr. Pink?  You decide.) and Hostus Maximus Justin Fort got back together in the Jeep Hole for an hour of tales from Tierra del Sol's annual Desert Safari, and this episode happened.

What's on tap for this episode?  One day of 'froading madness, with everything from FJ 9-coils ($5 a coil!), complicated driveshafts, kerploded hubs, portalled Jeeps, two-wheel drive Bugs, drooped leafs, Driveshaft Hill, bobbed 4Runners and WJs, full-time versus part-time four-wheel drive, viscous couplings, too many weird Jeeps, and why it's good not to flip your truck.

The usual Garage Hour digression was well in hand, with hybrid drivers versus public perception, Subaru CD players, post-Obamunism increases in car ownership, 40-eary old blenders and the wonder that is BlendTech's "Will It Blend" series, plus Stephen Seagal attempting to kill everyone in a restaurant.

Just when you thought it was safe…  No you didn't - hide your guns, hide your ammo: Spongebrain Brownpants and the third-world kleptocracy of Kalifornistan are out to get you and your Second Amendment rights. Reasonable, schmeasonable.

The Garage Hour goons are here to help: we captured Mike Schwartz of San Diego County Gun Owners and sometime cohost Matt "Killer" Klier of Active Shooter Defense School to discuss the state of firearms ownership in the failing state of California.  It's ugly and getting dumber, and your Constitutionally-guaranteed right to shoot, hunt, defend your home and person are in jeopardy.  The Garage Hour will help you understand how, and then ridicule someone foolish.

Just when you thought it was safe…  No you didn't - hide your guns, hide your ammo: Spongebrain Brownpants and the third-world kleptocracy of Kalifornistan are out to get you and your Second Amendment rights. Reasonable, schmeasonable.

The Garage Hour goons are here to help: we captured Mike Schwartz of San Diego County Gun Owners and sometime cohost Matt "Killer" Klier of Active Shooter Defense School to discuss the state of firearms ownership in the failing state of California.  It's ugly and getting dumber, and your Constitutionally-guaranteed right to shoot, hunt, defend your home and person are in jeopardy.  The Garage Hour will help you understand how, and then ridicule someone foolish.
