Thou Shalt Not Tailgate

Art car prankster, retired postman, and ordained minister Rev. Charles "Chuck" Linville is one-of-a-kind and proud of it. A cross between a collector, provocateur and outsider artist living in Portland, Oregon, he stands in weird contrast to the world around him. Told through a collection of humorous stories and adventures, "Thou Shall Not Tailgate" pokes fun at art, religion and politics, while following the Rev. Linville as he lives and creates on his own terms.
