Presented by Holley!

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

BIG NEWS: MOPARTY is next week. We’ll be there and you should be too! Unfortunately, as announced in this show, due to no fault of James Smith there will no long be a General Lee jump or stunt show at the event. All other activities are on as planned, however.

https://moparty.com. We will see you there!


This is the takeoff jump made by Al Wyatt for “Carnival of Thrills!” Unfortunately….this General Lee would not clear the parked cars at all. A second General was used to get the landing shot. Neither car survived! Image provided by Justin “Corndog” Cornette.

Corndog’s Pick – Dukes Review: S3E1

“Carnival of Thrills”

K&F Show Summary: The Dukes of Hazzard – at the absolute height of it’s popularity and power bring us a double length episode featuring a plethora of terribly painted General Lee’s, a seriously annoying manipulative woman, Dukes fighting Dukes, and a lesson on parenting only Uncle Jesse could give. The Dukes go see a Joe Chitwood stunt show. (It’s not called that in the show directly for marketing reasons, but that’s what it is.) The show is run by it’s second generation owner Diane, a woman who will cuddle up to any man who be be her star attraction driver. When the most recent guy nearly gets killed she suckers Bo into being the next man in. Luke sees through it, Bo gets hot headed and punches everyone in the way, and Uncle Jesse is left to guide a situation he cannot stop, but must direct before his family explodes. Boss and the lead carnival guy both try to kill the General Lee in the process and fail, but the General does what he does best; gives his boys a fighting chance to win the day…and they do by making the 32 car jump.

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)!
