Dad-I-Bought-A-Buick-Bob Davis Podcast 923

I don’t think I’m a car guy but now I bought a Buick! Certainly I love cars. Even more I know who to talk to about cars. Recently I bought a car my dad would have loved. Time to talk about my 1996 Buick Roadmaster with my friend Ken Madden in Dad-I-Bought-A-Buick-Bob Davis Podcast 923.

Escape From The Crazy With An Old School Cruiser

These days any distraction from the crazy is a good thing, right? That’s why when I had the opportunity to buy one of those ‘woody wagon‘ mid nineties cars, I jumped.

Buick With 72,000 Original Miles…In Dad-I-Bought-A-Buick-Bob Davis Podcast 923

Even more this one sat in a pole barn for ten years and has only about seventy thousand original miles.

Collector’s Item? I’d Like To Think So!

In a most noteworthy outcome I learned this car is not only a collectors item. This Buick is in high demand.

V8 Sedans and Wagons

Certainly this is as good a time as any to introduce podcast subscribers and listeners to a guy who’s driven these old V8 sedans and wagons for a long time.

Owned, Driven and Wrecked

From mid seventies Plymouth’s to Oldsmobile’s, Lincoln’s, Chevy’s and Buick’s, Ken Madden has owned, driven and wrecked more than his share of these big old American Beasts.

Powerful Memories

Especially relevant? These cars evoke powerful emotional memories for both of us. Find out why in Dad-I-Bought-A-Buick-Bob Davis Podcast 923. We need that nostalgia right about now.

Our Dad’s Loved To Buy Used Cars

Our dads preferred buying used cars. My dad would negotiate for a used Pontiac, Chevy or Buick until he’d pushed the sales guy over the edge. Ken’s dad did the same thing with Plymouth’s and Mercury’s.

Ride to Learn

Moreover the Maddens went cross-country with a trailer on the back of a Mercury wagon with 4 teenagers and a baby. My family barnstormed all over the Midwest and the South in a ’63 Chevy, 64′ Buick Electra Convertible. Later we hauled ass in the best of them all, a ’68 Buick Electra Convertible.

Clyde Barrow and The Chicago Gangsters And Their V8’s

Finally we devote a little time in this podcast to talking about the history of these big cars going back to the 1930’s. We also talk about their demise because of fuel standards in the 2000’s.

Mobile Podcast Command

I still have Mobile Podcast Command, a 2000 Ford Super Duty Diesel Ambulance. For sure keeping my 2007 Crown Victoria Police Car a little longer.

Now I’m That Guy Down The Block

In conclusion every neighborhood has one. The guy on the block with a bunch of old cars. That’s certainly the Maddens. Apparently I am now that guy too.

Toss Up House Elections 2018-Part 5-Podcast 757

What kind of a news environment are we in these days? A video of a TV reporter struggling against hurricane winds while people walk calmly behind him has gone viral. ‘Fake Wind’ is the latest example of how media covers ‘news’. Are they off base when it comes to politics? Find out in Toss Up House Elections 2018-Part 5-Podcast 757.

All The Toss Up Races All The Time

At the conclusion of this series I have reviewed specific data for Senate, Governors and House elections considered ‘toss ups’ in 2018. Especially relevant is the question of what actual polling data exists, facts about the district and candidates in each of these elections.

These podcasts include much of what I learned. Now you have the same information I have in Toss Up House Elections 2018-Part 5-Podcast 757.

Final Analysis Coming

I’ll do a final analysis in the next podcast. In addition there will be no predictions. No campaigning for a candidate. I think it is very difficult right now given the facts to make predictions about what will happen on November 6th 2018. That’s why they call them ‘close’ elections. You have to wait and see what the outcome will be.

Tons of Toss Ups All Over The Country

These toss up districts and statewide races are all over the country. There are older and younger people running. Men and Women. There are good democrat and republican candidates and a few libertarians and constitution party folks too. Moreover there are some truly funny characteristics to some of the candidates and situations in these districts.

No ‘Fake Wind’ Here

In conclusion it’s time we had political coverage that doesn’t ‘sell’ conclusions to keep people watching and listening. Coverage that doesn’t try to convince you to vote one way or another. No fake wind.

Finally, guess what every election depends on? Who votes. It’s that simple.
