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

Too much good stuff.  The Garage Hour goons got together for an hour of cars, trucks, beers and guns at F:30 in Colorado, and good talk happened all over the place.  Joined by Distraction Monster, the F.N.B., Mr. Chungus, Butters, Arson, the Russian, with a late appearance by Green Tip and some wild asses, Hostus Maximus tries to get a rope around this episode and almost pulls it off.

Good stuff may include:  silencers, Blackwater shotguns (the AR-style Century 12), Trinity's "Stay Here" stout (three years on-tap), "Typhoon of Steel" (read it), riot balls or pepper balls, and the advent of speciological appropriation!  #becausegearhead

The much-requested followup to our September used-car what-the-Hell episode - it's Used Cars 101. Sadly, the Gearhead Consultancy needed about eight hours to cover all the bases on what to look for when buying something used for yourself, but there was time to hit the high points. Long story Fort, anchor your eyeballs in common sense and don't be a fool (plus some things like what to care about and questions to ask).

Have no fear - specificity IS here. We run down a checkoff list of areas to eyebang, like body, suspension, state-of-wear, overall condition, starting and running, plus traps and tricks set by flippers. Justin case, bring a geek.

There is no Zuul, only Dana (50 and 60). The Garage Hour goons dove into a Dana 50 steer-axle on an F-250 and it was easy (never done it before). Career guys might laugh, but there's plenty of geeks with tool-skill who might be skeered to take one apart.  Don't be - and the Gearhead Consultancy is here to help.

From parts sources like West Coast Diffs and AutoZone, Ventures Truck Parts and Denny's, to the comfort you can get by picking up the phone (geeks unite!), the Dana 50 is easy, and any geek will do (it).

We're here:  It's Colorado time.  Garage Hour goons finally found a free hour (with all the minutes next to each other) to chat beer at Trinity, and it's siptastic.  Hostus Maximus Justin Fort even pinned down Matt Dettmann, the new captain of this beermaking cornerstone, and then it was trube this and yeast that, with Trinity's XToberfest, Wrath of God, Dark Passenger, and guest appearances by Inda Kunindra (YOU spell it), Quadrangle and The Compressor.

Because the Gearhead Consultancy is always looking out for you (and what you did wrong), there's also getting beer to India (not just for IPAs) and asking pro brewers and other geeks for help. Called it.

2020 hindsight is still coming to get you, but the Garage Hour goons are in the best place to catch it on the back foot - a gun store in Colordo.  The 2A is back and we're here to help, with Green Tip, the Russian, Wolf, and special guest The Compressor. When the die-down won't lie down and die - it's a more legitimate second wave than the Chinese bat plague ever managed...

There's also the usual awesomeness: mixing concrete (not with your hands, Marc), recalling Gov. Know-It-All, the Mask-Fart rule, putting your debris in the dumpster, and why it's stupid to shoot your TV unless you're watching at home.
