Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there. My son, Diet Mountain Drew, works at the OnCue on Flood in Norman. When he was leaving the other day a special treat rolled up. Yes, that is a replica Delorean outfitted like the famous auto from the Back to the Future franchise. Diet Mountain Drew said[…]
I was grounded this weekend with what is probably bronchial pneumonia. Lots of coughing, a very high heart rate from the medications, and an overall very tired feeling. Being relegated to the couch and bed all weekend, I watched a lot of television. I watched an entire afternoon of Star Wars movies. Episode 4 and Episode 5 mostly. I’m not a fan of
The Muppet Show Episode 6 due to the ridiculous effort to cutesy-fy the franchise and merchandise the crap out of it. Okay back to the main point I came here to write.
The Millennium Falcon is obviously a Land Rover.
By now you must be saying “What.the.hell?” So hear me out…. […]
Steven Lang has put together his own list of the top 10 worst used vehicles. You can visit it directly at THIS LINK (autos.yahoo.com). Its based on his own experience in the auto industry.
This is an interesting list and it has some very popular cars on it, VW Bug, Mini Cooper, and Jaguar S-types. I know my buddy JagGuy said his kids have had trouble with VWs of late. Engine failures with breaking in miles still left to be run. I saw a Mini Cooper in Mickey’s Garage just last week for a head gasket if I remember correctly. The job required the entire front of the car to be disassembled.
So with that lets review the Land Rovers… […]
If I said, “Cutters” to you would you know the reference? I ran across a photo today that brought to mind a movie I really enjoy every time I watch it, 1979’s “Breaking Away”. I watched this movie on a VHS tape for the first time in the early 1980’s. I was serving in the United[…]
This is the 42nd block of North Western in Oklahoma City. If you are a familiar with this block you have Beck’s Garage on one side of the street on the other you have VZD’s. I eat lunch at VZD’s every Monday. FYI: If you want to talk Land Rovers look for me on a[…]
Monday while everyone else was watching Beyoncé lipsync our National Anthem I was applying the embroidery to my Cherokee bandoleer bag and looking for something to watch on the boob tube. (Strange…the boob tube is no longer shaped like a boob.) I was haunting the Encore channels because they usually have old movies I’ve never[…]
It seems like every time I drive the Range Rover I get a Code 44. This is a GROSS over exaggeration of course. It only happens every other time. 😉(did I just use an emoticon in my blog? Wow. I need help.) I saw the Check Engine Light come on during the drive home on[…]
I set out on Saturday to get started on the now infamous Range Rover Restoration Part Duex. Hopefully it will be slightly more popular at the box office than the first restoration. Sometimes sequels don’t have near the success of the first episode. I can site a few examples… Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo Caddyshack 2[…]
A while back I told you all of a motion picture I was asked to be an extra in. It is called Treasure Blind. I recently found their website and thought I’d share it with you.Treasure BlindIf you go to the Media section and look at the pictures you will see me in a few.[…]
