Movie Review: “My Cousin Vinny”

K&F Show Summary: 49 year old Joe Pesci and 28 year old Marisa Tomei go to Alabama to defend a kid who accidentally stole a can of tune, then got charged with murder. This is the comedic story of the smart underachieving lawyer, his wicked-smart girlfriend, and his dippy younger cousin. It’s the take of New Yorkers that magically drive rust free 30-year old cars from state to state, looking for adventure and bringing justice to the masses.  all drive 30 year old rust free cars from New York, cross country, and make justice possible for the masses. Did I mention that the cousin is Karate Kid himself, Joe Maccio? And even better, this whole comedic genius movie is centered around the reality of the fact that a locking rear end is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than a one wheel wonder, but only if your smoke-show girlfriend teaches you that first. This one got Marisa Tomei an OSCAR and taught us all that no self respecting southerner eats instant grits. It may be Joe Pesci’s most likable character role ever and we’ll never get sick of listening to Marisa Tomei explain torque wrenches, posi-traction, and the stock ignition timing of a 327 Chevy.

National Parts Depot Presents: Bernie on the News

Also in this episode….the good people at National Parts Depot have to decided 2024 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)!
