Hey, a piece of auto-related pop culture ephemera that didn’t come from diskojoe! From back in the early days of Saturday Night Live (Season 1, Episode 10, 1975) comes “Mechanics Bedtime Story,” a skit featuring Dan Akroyd as a somewhat believable mechanic. Akroyd’s played quite a few characters heavily involved with old American iron: He is the one, after all, who described the Bluesmobile as having a cop motor, cop tires, cop shocks, and as Dr. Raymond Stantz, he transformed the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor into Ecto-1. Anybody know if he’s a true car guy, or does he just play one on TV?
