    No it was a joke. It has already been stated in this thread that it was from the movie losin' it. You can relax.

    Some of these posts remind me of the trips I've made to Bogata, Columbia where you can buy anything and probably one of the most dangerous places I've ever been to. We used to stay at the Tequendama Hotel a first class hotel which had a high class shopping arcade that wound through out the hotel. You couldn't walk 100 feet without someone try to sell you emeralds real or fake, female companionship or blow which is what they call cocaine. I'll never forget the shops that sold leather goods throughout the city that sold briefcases, suitcases, belts, wallets and all kinds of leather items. Almost all these shops had at least one wall that held nothing but holsters. I always thought they are not selling holsters unless they had something to put in them. Would never even think about going there again its probably now worse. I'll bet TJ isn't any safer right now.

    'Horseshit' or 'Donkeyshit' was a long running joke, we as kids in Santa Clara had lots of laughs about it...
    But when Johnny Cuelo pulled the rear seat out of his mild custom '50 Ford Tudor, he noticed the stitching had come loose under the back rest.
    The 1 year old white naugahyde tuck-and-roll job (back seat and back rest ONLY) had been stuffed with rolled-up pages from Mexican newspapers.
    Yep. We saw it. Me and two Donahues.
    Johnny took the shoebox to Toupal in San Jose to have it fixed...he said Toupal charged him $125!!! As much as he paid the Tijuana guys a year before! (1956)
    True.

    I took my J-2 powered '50 Olds Coupe to Victory Upholstery in T.J., 1962. Headliner, seats, side panels...red & white tuck & roll, red piping. $275.
    Tommy Santos and I took turns watching 'em do it, bought the guys (workers) each a bottle of Tequila, the owner (an Italian-American) refused any 'tip', as he was the owner. They worked all night, amazing. Times were different. The border guard looked suspicious, but let us thru.
    CHP stopped me near Bakersfield going North, 100 MPH. He was interested in the car, showed him the engine, explained we were 'late for work'...he gave me a ticket for 'excessive speed, Prima-Facie'. (remember that one? LOL)

    Trumpets began to announce the entrance of the picadors and matadors...
