Presented by Holley!

Phase 3 of Kibbe and Friends is officially here, and Holley is back for more fun, foolishness, and flying orange Chargers!

Holley digs fun, speed, and deals……and so do we! If John Milner were still alive today he would probably be a healer of Holley parts….and he would DEFINITELY have upgraded to electronically controlled exhaust cutouts. Holley calls them the “Attitude Adjuster.” We call them, “God Bless America!”

Movie Review: American Graffiti

K&F Movie Summary:
If Corndog were transported in time, this is where he’d end up. I get it now. American Graffiti is about a time when cars, car culture, cruising, and podcasters – which back then were called Radio Disc Jockeys – ruled and ruled supreme. This movie made actors into stars, in many cases – lifelong big time MOVIE Stars. Featuring Ron Howard,Paul Le Mat, Richard Dreyfus, and a young carpenter pulled back into acting by a friend – Harrison Ford, this is the tale of a yellow ‘32 Deuce against a big block ‘55 Chevy. Or is it? By the time this is done, you might be wondering if ‘58 Chevy’s are on the comeback….or if the whole movie was a setup for the 1980 Disney Classic “Herbie Goes Bananas,” co starting Terry the Toad himself, Charles Martin Smith. More so, American Graffiti is the launchpad of Star Wars….because as a result of this movie, George Lucas would have a blank checkbook for the rest of his life to do whatever he wanted. 10-stars.

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)!
