The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) recently launched a four-part video series on lift safety featuring celebrity car builder/TV host Lou Santiago. In the YouTube series, Santiago gives a behind-the-scenes tour of the new LiftLab facility at ALI’s headquarters in Cortland, NY. Along the way, he shares lift safety tips and highlights a couple of cool vehicles in the facility—a 1969 Plymouth Road Runner and a 1946 Brockway heavy-duty truck. The first episode can be viewed on

“Lou’s been wrenching on cars and trucks since he was a kid,” said R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, ALI president. “He got his start through the New York State BOCES program for diesel mechanics, served his country as a Navy Seabee and has shown millions of people how to build and repair vehicles through his television shows. He’s a great guy to deliver the message that although everyone makes mistakes, it is important to focus on using and maintaining lifts properly to stay safe on the job.”

As part of the video series campaign, ALI is offering a free pair of shop safety glasses with every order of the new Safety Tips poster Santiago highlights in the first episode. The 30x45-in. poster outlines 13 tips for safe lifting, including lift operation, maintenance and inspection. It’s available in packs of two for $38 with free shipping in the U.S.

Here are the MotorMouthRadio-Approved Motorcycle (Culture) Movies:

  1. Easy Rider (1968): This one seems to rise to the top of the heap on most lists. This all-time classic biker buddy flick is light on action but high on existentialism. More of a psychedelic drug plot than a rough and tumble stereotypical biker film, this one turns out real bad for the stars and gave me a respect for shotguns.
  2. Hells Angels Forever (1966): With a cast of H.A. club members & music from Jerry Garcia, Johnny Paycheck & Bo Diddley, this movie is the “true story of an American phenomenon”.
  3. It’s a Revolution, Mother (1969) originally titled “Biker Babylon” There’s footage from an anti-Vietnam peace rally in Washington D.C., and a free concert held somewhere in Florida, but the real reason to watch this flick is the coverage the 1% club The Aliens from NJ are featured in. If you like Panhead choppers & gritty clubhouse conversation this is the one for you.
  4. Electra Glide in Blue (1973): Bored with traffic duty a bike cop gets re-assigned to the Homicide Division. Along with Robert Blake, Peter Cetera (bassist & lead singer of the Rock/Blues/Jazz band Chicago), plays Bob Zemko. A character named “the Beard” is played by an actor whose real name is Bob Zemko. Cops in the movie ride 1970 Harley Davidson Electra Glides…hence the title. Blake didn’t like the title and instead preferred “Chopper Coppers”. Fans of this popular garbage barge ride will be in 7th heaven after watching the road footage found within.
