Hank Watson's Garage Hour - Cars, Trucks, Beers & Guns

Don't fool yourself: "new" frequently means "worse", and in few places does this show itself better than the automotive industry.  Real gems must be found, and bad ideas must be tied to the mast and whipped.  Huge in-car touch-screens?  Horrible.  High-end exotic SUVs?  A joke on humanity.  Electric-car viability as a replacement for internat combustion?  Getting to the moon for vacation is more likely.  The Garage Hour can tell you why.

More depth: electric cars and why they're less safe, less clean, less functional, get crappy mileage, are more expensive, more egocentric, and more likely to fail you.  Big screens in cars and trucks?  How isn't that encouraging distracted driving?  How are more faceless features making you a better driver?  Duhh.

It's simple: you hate your tires. At least, you're acting like you hate your tires. Nails and bolts, curbs and rocks, dub-physics and China-quality, it all screams that a lot of people are missing the point: black tires matter.

We're here to help. Everything from air-pressure to maintenance ideas, some of the arguments against cool-guy skinny sidewalls, and how you're going to learn to love your contact patch. It's a Garage Hour, though, so there's also new parts, new workbenches, new beers, new cohosts and Pizza Port's Shark Attack double-red ale.
