THE FORD DEALER COULDN’T SERVICE MY VEHICLE (and you’ll never guess why)
The local Ford dealer couldn’t service my vehicle one day last week.
They said they couldn’t do it the next day either.
It was just a routine oil change, refill all the fluids, and tire rotation.
But no, they couldn’t do it and you’ll never guess why.
Take a wild guess.
Ok, do you give up?
The service bays were occupied by a filming crew for an action movie that is being filmed called Trading Paint, possibly being released June 2018. John Travolta was on the set for filming! He looks good with the beard, huh?
Along with John, others in the movie include Toby Sebastian, Michael Madsen, Shania Twain, and Barry Corbin.

Some have said they think this movie is about The Alabama Gang and more specifically about Bobby and Davey Allison. I don’t know and I have not read that it is. For those that don’t know – The Alabama Gang set up shop in Alabama. They were a group of NASCAR drivers who operated out of Hueytown, near Birmingham. Legendary Bobby Allison discovered the area during his travels as he was looking for an area that had more opportunities to race. His brother Donnie and his friend Red Farmer followed Bobby to Alabama from Florida. The Alabama Gang grew from Bobby, Donnie, and Red to include Bobby’s son Davey, Jimmy Means, Neil Bonnett, David Bonnett, and Hut Stricklin.
