After reading about the Chicagoland Corvair Enthusiasts Club flaming vacuum cleaner competition video (referenced in "Dave Barry's Complete Guide to Guys"), I've always wanted to see the actual video. I have checked Youtube on numerous occasions, but have never had any luck.
I've always felt that this section of the "Guys" book was really the essence of what a "guy" is. I would pass someone my copy of the book and ask them to read the section about the flaming vacuum cleaner competition. If they couldn't get through it without laughing, then they were guys. (By this definition, my wife is also a "guy").
It occurred to me that there might be other fans of Dave's work that might want to see this, so I am passing it along.

Thanks, Martin. I was starting to fear that I had imagined that.
