Chuck Davis’ Holley equipped Listener Mustang!

Presented with Holley!

For some reason, this show and Holley go together like tires and smoke – a perfect fit! Check out the description below from listener Check Davis about his recent upgrade on his ’67 Mustang:

“I installed this in my 1967 Mustang along with the in-tank fuel pump 12-305. Since the pump has an internal regulator, I was able to avoid running a return line. The install was pretty simple and fired right up. The winter weather has kept me from driving it too much yet, but after the first 100 miles I am very impressed. The low and mid range throttle response is dramatically better than the old carburetor. I’m running it without timing control for now, but might get a different distributor later to have that control as well. BTW-Holley: I purchased this after hearing about it on the Kibbe and Friends Podcast.” – Chuck Davis

K&F Movie Summary:

What do you get when you combine 2 great actors with amazing chemistry, comedic timing, a woman to fight over, a REEEEEALY old man to make horrible inappropriate jokes, a Minnesota winter at Christmastime, and elderly jokes a mile long? One of the most perfect movies ever made – Grumpy Old Men. It’s Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon fighting over Anne Margeret, making the same kind of dumb jokes that guys never – and I mean EVER – get sick of telling.

Now – this is an automotive and pop culture podcast of course – and there are plenty o cars in this movie….which might be the problem with it, maybe the only flaw in fact. The star cars are a 68 Dodge Polara and a ‘74 International Harvester Travelall, but don’t forget the 83 Pontiac Grand Prix and the red 1980 Chevy Citation – all of which in this movie are rust free, and all of which in Minnesota would have had 4 wheels in the ground by the time they were 7 years old. They salt cars in the Midwest like Bernie on a Tuesday morning bacon bender. 10 corndogs. Plus 2.
