Road House (1989) (part 7 of 15)
Now Dalton is sitting on the hood of his car outside of Red’s Auto Parts, a store that looks mostly like a façade on an old Western set in Pioneertown. (Indeed, on the commentary track, Rowdy confirms that the exterior of Red’s Auto Parts consists of two walls, and nothing else.) A lime green pickup arrives, and out steps Red, a genial old man with a white beard and a mesh cap with the U-Haul logo. I guess he really digs U-Haul, even more than the nearest pro sports team. Go Wizards!
Dalton has come to repair the thrashing that his car got the other night at the bar. Red says a new windshield would cost more than the car, but Dalton loves the car too much, so he orders a new windshield.
And a reverse angle shows that Red’s Auto Parts is… just on the other side of the parking lot from the Double Deuce. Talk about convenient! Get your car trashed, and repaired, all in the same parking lot! It’s one-stop shopping! For coolers, anyway.
