Christmas is just around the corner…..and Santa is making his list and checking it twice. But lets be honest; do you really want to leave this one up to St. Nick? He’s a nice enough guy of course, but at this point he’s trying to help every kid on the planet while simultaneously not having to pay gift tax to the Feds on all of it. The IRS will get everyone, brother!

Kibbe and Finnegan Movie Re-Run:

“Cannonball Run”

This mid-month episode features a “re-run” of our movie review of Cannonball Run from Episode 85 of the Kibbe and Finnegan Show. Call us lazy, but it’s comedy gold. It also kept us from working too hard this week. Or at all. Enjoy. 

K&F Show Summary: This episode features our review of the movie Cannonball Run, but it’s really more of a tribute to the late great Burt Reynolds who passed away recently. We loved Burt’s crazy car movies and Cannonball Run was as zany as it ever got. The premise and screen play were a credit to automotive journalist Brock Yates (who makes a cameo in this movie), and then Burt, Dom DeLuise, and Hal Needham took of from there. Alter ego superheroes, cross-eyed proctologists, inappropriate humor (by today’s standards) and ambulances with straight headers are all you need to know. Thanks for the fun, Burt!

You can listen to our review of Smokey and the Bandit back in Episode 31 here as well: https://themusclecarplace.com/kf-show-31

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)!
