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

PPIHC 2021 is in the books, and the Garage Hour goons were in the mix (George's, baby!). From early on the hill to fine sips afterwards (plus a little racing), we were in it and we have tales to tell.  Drivers?  Shute, Dallenbach, Dumas, Millen, Astier, Vasholtz, Schrantz, Donahue, Clay, Pobst and 100 more.  Cars?  LMPs, sprinters, stockers, Trans-Am, Cadillac, Porsche, BMW, Bentley, Camaro and Mustang, plus zip-ties, downforce and turbochargers.  So many turbos.

Because racecar, there's more: Engineers, Bottomless and Boulder Park, Contagion, Deep Purple, Eagles of Death Metal and Gruntruck.  Oh yeah, and beer.

Four hours of mixing better be worth a nut - the Garage Hour captured a truckload of mamma's muffins during practice and testing at the PPIHC, and spliced the sexiest sounding road-racey bits into this episode.  There's tales of awesome from George's, Double-Cut and Cog, with Millen(s), Donahue, Becker, Crouch, Vasholtz, Gogelein, Wickstrum, Dallenbach, Strauch and Fouch.

There's also hotter plugs, the smell of coolant, more Amon Tobin (Chaos Theory by popular demand, yous!), and the death of the Blue Yeti (time for the yetipult).

The Garage Hour asks: is your kid gun-safe?  Borne of a perfect rant that took shape in the garadtch and made it all the way to the mic, we went for broke on 2A goodness and wound up with a whole episode. There's also details of Texas' embrace of "Constitutional carry", the court's arsing of Kalifornistan's "assault" weapon ban, an ammo company's feelings on Biden voters, and, oh yeah, 7,000,000 Aguila bullets stolen by Mexican cartels.

Props to Breitbart and Gateway Pundit for the copious coverage...  Also starring Tigger (springs in my butt), racecars (because), The Precious (10mm), Funyons, the Federalist Papers, the Blue mic fails, and truckloads of Amon Tobin.

#Becausegearhead - it's the first-ever Garage Hour.  Combine big-AM talk radio w/ a first-time show host who's just found out how to talk to more people about cars, trucks, beers and guns, and that's this.  From facts on the disaster caused by Obama's auto bailout (local impact, attacks on Republican dealership owners, Ford's debt, and why GM and Chrysler ain't cool anymore) to a little ditty about why watermelon environmentalism won't mix with real improvement, and you can see a lot of Justin Fort's baby monster here.

..And like always, there's more: Goodyear MT/R Kevlars, Saleen's bankruptsy, Scarecrow's diet, Econolube 163, and wherever the Hell is Hank Watson.  Have some.

So much good stuff! The gearhead goons use clay bars for perfect paint (technique and tricks): clay behavior and quality, keeping the clay (and the paint) clean, detailer versus water (enabling the slide), and putting clay to stuff that's not auto paint (yuuuup!).  There's also hillclimbing and Pikes Peak Hillclimb (coming up, plus Indy just passed), fun roads in Colorado, track snobs versus motorcyclists, and building the skillset.

We've also got the new 2021 Distractomatic, Tesla spying for (or on?) China, China spying on us all (thanks, Joe!), and rescuing hikers and bikers for fun and 'froading. Oh yeah, and Ministry, Incubus and Trinity's Citra Pale.
