02.20.21: Gearhead News: New F1 VS Old F1, USPS's Mutant Cartoon Trucks, Roush Pretends Racing Gives a Hoot, Springsteen Elites Away a DUI, Tiger Crashes a Wagon, & JD Power's New-Car Ratings, + Old Beer, Nice FJ Guys in TX, & Ethanol VS Dinner
Why not? The Garage Hour goons usually focus on one topic (before veering off), but tonight, it's a weekly look at gearhead news. J.D. Power's reliability ratings (Lexus and Porsche at the top, Chrysler, Tesla, and Fix It Again Tony at the bottom), pompous nuisance Bruce Stiffstein elites his way out of a DUI, Tiger crashes into some woods.
Meanwhile, Roush Racing puts coffee mugs in the kitchen and calls itself green, ethanol makes your dinner more expensive, and F1's new prez tries to eliminate the parade-effect that's killed what little is left of interest in the series. After that, we've got a Toyota guy from Texas who pulled out 145 stuck motorist in two days (Texans do everything big).
