    Culottes. Never put your lad in culottes.
    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    So are we no longer doing the classic captions articles anymore or something?

    Why does everything Lagunitas makes taste like Lagunitas IPA? (Except the Pilsner.)
    Do they just use one variety of hops, or what? I’ve been picking up their Day Time and Night Time brews, and while I like the taste of IPA in a 4,6% brew, I have to wonder if they’re just dicking me around.

      Well, there’s always the Hairy Eyeball, if you’re more in the mood for something sickeningly sweet & out of balance.
      I like their Pils more & more, and I’m not generally a big fan of lagers.

      Everything I’ve had by them has been okay but not spectacular. Except Hop Stoopid, which was awful.

      More than likely they are using just one variety of yeast for all these beers and some may share the same base grain.

    Car and Driver is reporting that Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended for taking a swing at a producer and the remainder of this year’s Top Gear season has been canceled. That is a shame, and one increasingly unhinged individual shouldn’t be allowed to kill a show loved by millions. Clearly a change is needed. Top Gear needs a new presenter – someone equally tall and with a sharp wit but a kinder, gentler approach. Someone who hates rust.
    There really is only one acceptable solution: the BBC should terminate Jeremy Clarkson’s contract effective immediately and replace him with Chris Haining.
    What could possibly go wrong?

      I saw that as well. Clarkson is his own brand as is Harris. Harris has his own YT Channel and rakes in the bitcoins. JC has to be watching. Clarkson is 75% of TopGear with the Stig the other 20%. Tell me I am wrong.
      Either BBC is an f’ning genius to put us on the edge of our seats for season 22 or they’re a load of dimwits killing the golden goose.
      In other news, Roadkill just published a new video last week on the intertubes,

        i wouldn’t call them dimwits. clarkson may be the golden goose, but i’d have a hard time choosing a man with a reputation for punching people as my public face.

          Especially if they started punching folk simply because there was not hot catering provided. You’d think that on his salary he could afford his own food.
          Throw some “allegedly”s in there where appropriate.

      If JC were to go I think the only acceptable replacement I know of would be Tiff Needell. However, with the BBC being the BBC I think they’ll want a non-white-male presenter, and if they do that I am not sure who will carry the series or how the host dynamic will function. The real question is why did the producer take a week to complain about JCs behaviour (obligatory)?

      Half a million people have signed the petition to BBC to reinstate Clarkson….
      Clarkson’s 3 year BBC deal ends anyway this month and other channels are ready to hire all 3 to present similar show under different name if they became available. All info there is:

    The automotive world lost a figure of unparalleled stature recently: Bruce Baldwin Mohs passed away last month.

      Sad news. No more SafariCars.

        Mr. Mohs favored the spelling SafariKar.

          I stand corrected good sir.
          I fear no-one else will make a fully covered by padded vinyl, automobile.
          Which will, of course, be to the loss of us all.

    Today I got in my 2010 Challenger, drove it to the Dodge dealership and parked in sight of my salesman’s cubicle. Took out the things I needed to keep, turned over the key(fob)s, watched it driven off to wherever trade-ins go, signed an interminable stack of papers and then wrote a check for several months’ worth of my salary (not as big as it could have been since I happen to work for one of the corporate siblings of FCA US LLC OMG BBQ.) Got a different set of key(fob)s and drove home in a blue 2015 Challenger that happens to have my name on its window sticker.
    The 2010 was an awesome car. The 2015 just might be more awesome.

      Congrats, Challengers are awesome and that is coming from a very happy 2012 Mustang owner.
