01.25.14: The Smog Guy Episode, Plus Old Trucks, Old Catalytics, Old Volvos, New Rock, Tactical Shooting, Camp 'Yota and Killing the Hostage Chicken
Do you have questions about passing smog? Curious about how to make your hot rod/ricer/sled/trail rig/show car/commuter slug survive two more years in California's growing emisions police state? Want to know about all the new "regulations" CA has passed to make your car's life harder? Hank Rotten's Garage Hour's Smog Guy episode peels back a few layers on what to do to pass the test, why old Volvos never fail smog and how the state is going to screw you, tuners, reprogrammers, the smog guy - Hell, even the hybrids are going to get screwed. Mike the Smog Guy also reveals a whole bunch of smog-testing secrets that CA's state of desperation probably wishes it could keep secret.
Don't worry - we won't let you down. When the Garage Hour's Hostus Maximus Justin Fort and Mike Petscheck, of Smog Only/STAR-Certified Smog in El Cajon finally digress from the smog thing, they'll hit on why they always get beaten by old Marines at tactical shotgun competitions and how a fainting hostage chicken sure looks like a dead hostage chicken. They'll also revisit ObmaFail #lostcount that was Cash for Clunkers, CA's ongoing electric and hybrid plug pig infrastructure fail, Swedish sniper rifles rechambered in .308 Winchester, Dude Food at Camp 'Yota, and Mike the Mic stands in for long-lost cohost Crag Maxwell and gets the station to use its liability warning on us.
Why? Because it's chock-full of great. Podcast it now.
