It's not a great video, but I can attest: It's about as much fun as you can have on four wheels.

Not true - it'll give you visually similar images.

The desert scenes may be the best thing you've done so far.

Yup, the YouTube policy is take down first, appeal later, or, Guilty Until Proven Innocent.

ABOMINATION. Leviticus 19:27:
"Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard."

Wait, is that the wrong one? Maybe Leviticus 4:27, where if you "somewhat" sin, you have to do the whole burnt offering thing with a goat or a sheep. Or Liviticus 5:2, where every time you swear, or even hear someone swear, your priest has to twist off the heads of some of your birds.


I'm sure all you Christians citing Leviticus do that, right?

I didn't call anyone a bigot, although I think you just self-identified.

I've read all of Leviticus, which is exactly my point--many people pick and choose what to obey.

Story
Tagline
I am a partially hairless bipedal mammal.
Introduction
At some point I stopped with all the construction work and children's theater and hoboing around the rails and started writing about and photographing cars. I did that professionally for some time.

I still do that as the owner of Redeye Media. I consult about old car matters and write about cars. 

Such fun! You should hire me.

As the only game in town, Enterprise could easily have sunk to the level of, say, the local Price Chopper and employ only the most surly and inefficient bottom feeders they could find. Instead, they are uniformly polite, friendly and efficient, despite being flat-out busy much of the time. My only possible complaint is their location seems inadequate for the business they do--while it's undoubtedly a central, high traffic area, there often isn't room for either the people or cars they handle. Regardless, they are always a pleasure to work with, accommodating of schedule changes (and on the lookout for my interests with good deals) and a genuine pleasure to work with. I'm grateful for them every time.

Paulson is the sort of old time, friendly local sawmill that's extinct in most places. For service and prices, it's truly like stepping back in time in the best possible way. Every local for probably 20 or 30 miles around goes there, which says everything you need to know.

The previous reviewer forgot to add: Filthy, creepy and generally skanky. I'd feel better dumpster-diving for baby supplies than going back there.

I just returned from one of the most frustrating car buying experiences of my life at Ernie's. This morning I called down to make sure a car was on the lot before starting the 70-minute round trip; when I arrived, the incredibly surly and unhelpful salesman told us "one of the bosses" had the car, and he had no idea when it would be there. I can't imagine a car salesman less interested in selling a car. I think my wife would have smacked him if we hadn't gotten the hell out of there.

This is the sort of experienced, family-run smalltown garage you think disappeared about 40 years ago.
