Presented by Holley!

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


The fall events at Holley are just around the corner and Holley MOPARTY is less than 60 days away. We’ll be there and you should be too! We are ONCE AGAIN the media partner for the General Lee jump, too!



The all new 5-wire hookup Sniper 2.0 EFI is here and yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus! The list of upgraded features is extensive, but long story short this is about to make something that was revolutionary even easier. Like the original Sniper it’s designed to work with a myriad of ignition and transmission options from basic points to fill timing control with transmission kickdown provision. It even has an integration for a PDM (Power Data Module), a feature that’ll make your life a magical wonderland when you have multiple components that all need a clean 12V power source and access to switched power.

Just visit Holley.com to peruse and view for yourself and be SURE to tell them that we sent you!

Cody Young’s Guest Host Movie Review:

“Hot Rod”

K&F Show Summary: Friends, for a lot of you this one has been a long time coming. This is our review of the Andy Samberg movie “Hot Rod.” It’s the tale of Rod, a young Evil Knievel wanna be stuntman, who makes his quest in life to do killer stunts to earn enough money to pay for his step father’s heart transplant. And that….is about as serious as it gets. Rod cannot grow a mustache, so he uses a fake one during his stunts. To quell his anger, he does gymnastics in the forest until he falls down the side of a mountain for about 2 minutes. His loser buddies build his ramps and light his fireworks. If there’s a school bus to jump, he’s your man. He won’t make it, but he’s your man anyway. It’s stupid, slapstick, musical, and pure comedic genius in every way. 10 Corndogs from all of us!

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)!
