April Movie Redux: Happy Gilmore!
Note: the Happy Gilmore review you are about to hear was originally recorded in KF Show #220 in April of 2022. It was awesome then and it’s awesome now!
K&F Show Summary:
Movie Review: In honor of the Masters PGA Tournament we bring you our review of the best automotive golf move starring Adam Sandler known to man; Happy Gilmore. Think of it like Billy Madison, but it’s about golf, has Apollo Creed in it, and stars a ’74 Duster with a sweet aftermarket sunroof!
Happy Gilmore is a man who wished he was a hockey player and who was raised by his grandmother after his mother ran out of him and his dad was killed by an errant hockey puck. While his hockey dream would never become a reality, the slapshot he mastered would help him to become a long drive golf hero of the common man. It would also somehow get him beat up by Bob Barker, host of “The Price is Right!”
Aside from the slapstick humor, this also gave us the chance to do a deep dive on A-Body MOPARS and investigate the magic “1973 and newer” front disc brake swap phenomenon that changed MOPAR humanity as we know it. All credit goes to Happy!

National Parts Depot Presents: Bernie on the News
Also in this episode….the good people at National Parts Depot have to decided 2023 is the year to present the Award Winning Newsman Bernie McPartland in his (self-proclaimed) award winning news segment, Bernie On the News. As most of you know, NPD is the title sponsor of The MuscleCar Place Podcast and has been since 2011. Their immense support of TMCP as a show (and as a company) can’t be overshadowed.
And now, the fact that they are presenting Bern in the drivers seat for the world to hear….is somewhat humbling. And by humbling, we mean frightening, terrifying, sickening, etc. Welcome, NPD (and Bern, don’t screw this up)!
