Clint Eastwood and his ’58 Jaguar XK-1505
True motor know-how is lacking these days. Chances are if you are glancing down at something the way Mr. Eastwood is, it’s because your TiVo failed you once again. The days of greasy rags existing simply for the sake of greasy rags existing are long gone. Get your hands dirty like Dirty Harry. Take it apart, put it together, rub the sweat from your brow, and sigh. We live in a world where we have other people fix our problems. Do it right. Prepare to get grimy, rub those paws together and jump right in.
Only Jack Nicholson could do any harm (or good) with a dollar in hand. A light tweed sport coat and a young Angelica Huston can get you in the swankiest of social functions, of course a prize winning grin is half the battle. And to be honest, it was a battle won before it began. Dress fresh, wear a smile and tip well. If you’re on the post recession budget constraint, be gratuitous with your compliments – Nicholson says it best:
“Just let the wardrobe do the talking.”
– Jack Nicholson (2002)
