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

As if the geeks and goons chasing the Garage Hour don't have enough reality to deal out already, it's a show with more - fat beardos with their first bike (and it was pink!), Florida's Haulover Inlet and all the sweet boats that hit it (and those that couldn't pull it off), that Mustang "Guy" who doesn't understand traffic doesn't plan to cooperate, and a little bit on where have all the UbLyfters gone.

Why yes, there's more: cats and dogs (refusing to live together), the value of coolant, a few thoughts on the importance of human decency and why other drivers could use some.

Don't be a tool - let function guide you to the geek side.  Garage Hour goons and gearhead gadabouts alike are celebrating more Second Amendment fans, and everyone's going plinkin'.  Meanwhile, CA is still trying to prove that fewer guns equal less crime (it doesn't), and Norway proves that guns don't make people kill (just the evil in men's hearts).

While we're at it, there's some Blues Brothers, high-zoot hypocrites, another reason for good file-keeping (instructions!), lifted Subies (eww), and having a good day.

The Gearhead Consultancy made a drive-by of recent decisions by hallmark international automakers' lousy design and product ideas, and was led into a originality dead end.  From parts-bin novelties to bathtub visibility, the limited-production cop-out to mimicry versus flattery, there's more "ehhh" than "yeah" coming out of the big guys, and you're right to demand better (or other).

It's all good: there's also Dude Food with stew and roast, zombie chainsaw Darwin, Andrew Bornhop, and garagelike wads of goodness (plus flash VS pan).

Getting back in the saddle is hard to do - but we're doing it anyway, because gearhead.  Hostus Maximus Justin Fort was on the road and captured everything from automotive design cheating (BMW and Suzuki VS Subaru), that guy in the Jeep in the #1 lane who forgets he's in traffic because his wagon is the toughest (traffic elitist), the same elitism at the gas pump, and why professional test drivers are serious one-percenters.

While we're at it, there's also the upside of kick-starting your day with doing (geek!), what lights on the front of your rig won't get you arrested, and what an information desert tastes like.
