Stuck Belt Buckle

I think the story goes that he got stuck inside a generator when his large belt buckle (worn in front) go snagged on something. Can you verify this, Joe Havorka?

Johny Turner's belt buckle

I remember the distintive way Johny Turner wore his belt buckle but can't remember why. Do you remember how his hard hat was always cocked sideways too? Oh yeah, I made the mistake one day of pronouncing turbine "turBINE" and Johny was quick to correct me. "A turBINE is what someone wears on their head. The device that produces power from steam is pronounced turban" according to Turner. He was cool. Jeff Porges
