Movie Review: Stroker Ace

K&F Show Summary:

Project Update: Corndog’s ’66 Charger runs….and the Holley Sniper seems to have even sorted out his crazy high-lift cam! After setting the Idle Air Control following warmup it now cranks over on the first start, cold or hot. Idle timing is 28 degrees, All in at 34 degrees.


If you loved Smokey and the Bandit, Cannonball Run, Police Academy, WKRP, Gomer Pyle: USMC, The Hardy Boys, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, Deliverance, and Days of Thunder….this is like all of them combined, minus ….basically everything from Deliverance except Ned Beaty, and all of the really good stuff from Days of Thunder like Tom Cruise and amazing cinematography with real in car race footage at speed. This movie would be culture cancelled today. Sexual harassment is considered innocent fun, women are ogled, there’s (ironically) no drug use, and the confederate flags are a plenty. But when Hal Needham called, Burt Reynolds answered…and made a box office flop that has kept us all clucking and chuckling to this day. Why? Because he was driving the FASTEST CHICKEN IN THE SOUTH.
