THE WILD RIDE TO CONFUSION

UNCLE PETE DOES AN UN-BUILD OF THE DARK VAULT HOT ROD

UNCLE PETE DOES SOME INVESTIGATIN’ AND RESTORATIN’ ON THE DARK VAULT HOT ROD

Work is progressing on the rebuild of the Dark Vault Hot Rod.  A total lack of brakes slowed things down for a bit (funny how no brakes can slow things down).  But it’s onward and upward this week as UNCLE PETE dives into some engine work and digs up the 1960 counterculture hot rod film – The Wild Ride.  It stars Georgianna Carter, Robert Bean, Carol Bigby, and Jack Nicholson. Nicholson is a hard-nosed anti-society dirt track racer who loves partying and rebelling and being on top – no matter what the cost to others. There’s drinkin’, fightin’, playin’ chicken, and all sorts of mayhem in director Harvey Berman’ s The Wild Ride.

     Meanwhile, UNCLE PETE hits the Dark Vault Garage to try to find out why the Dark Vault Hot Rod is not performing like it should. Along the way he finds time to bring you the 1954 Popeye car-toon Taxi Turvy and our favorite cartoon cutie – Betty Boop – hoppin’ in her race car (with a cold) in Ker Choo. Plus, we’ve got some good advice for all you JD Hot Rodders out there in Road Runners.

CHICKEN SOUP AND CARBURETORS DON’T MIX

Although the Dark Vault Hot Rod isn’t back on the road yet, we are making progress now that the new paint job is dry (no, we didn’t use brushes, we did it the professional way – with rollers).  Pieces are going back on instead of getting destroyed, so the DVHR will ride again.  But in the meantime, join UNCLE PETE and the pre-restored Dark Vault Hot Rod this Saturday night, August 16, 2014 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4, channel 99, and channel 17 in Binghamton, Sayre (PA), and Corning/Elmira as we bring you our newly remastered version of The Wild Ride, the next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
