Welcome to Episode #44 of the Kibbe and Finnegan show! If you’re new to the show, Mike Finnegan and I have taken our Dukes of Hazzard fandom and turned it into a full fledged automotive podcast Gong Show of sorts, completed with a full episode review from The Dukes of Hazzard. It’s every 40-year-old’s dream, right?
You can find every episode here on The MuscleCar Place and iTunes and Google Play, and from time to time we’ll also be posting video clips and (and even) full shows to Finnegan’s Garage on YouTube. If you click the “Download” link at the top of this post you’ll be able to stream it on your phone directly. You can also pull the RSS feed as well.
If you like the show…for the love of all that’s holy, share it with your buddies and tag your favorite companies on Instagram with #SponsorKibbeandFinnegan! It may be a lame, but we’re not above it.
We’ll be adding in a live show stream in the future – so be sure to follow us online for notice of when that will be happening. Look for this show to publish twice monthly here (or maybe even MORE often), in iTunes, and on Finnegan’s YouTube channel! You can also sign up to win future prizes and get show notifications by visiting http://www.kfshowgiveaway.com to sign up. You’ll get a follow up e-mail that confirms you’re not a robot, and once you’ve clicked the acceptance link you’re done. That’s it!

KF Show 44:
Drag Week Witty Banter Autopsy
For those of you that love the “witty banter” portion of this episode, this is where you’ll get the full scoop on the epic tale if Mike and his pals working day and night to get Blasphemi ready for Hot Rod Drag Week….only to have it drop a valve and grenade the engine shortly after the event started. Even better, before this episode he doused his laptop in water and ran into a wall crotch first trying to save it.
Guess what? We have another brand new shirt…and it’s straight from an iTunes review that sates our show as the following:
“One is Wholesome, and the Other is a Mini Trucker”
Hope you like it. We also have back on sale the most popular shirt we’ve ever made that features an actual jumping orange car (that infringes no trademarks)! If you would like to support the show in a really tangible way (i.e. to buy something so we can keep paying Bernie, Michael, and Kirk), please consider purchasing one. We chose the best American Apparel super-cuddly shirt as the base, and the design is a one-off by our own pal Kirk. Visit KFSHOWSHIRTS.COM to pick one up!
The Fast and the Furious
K&F Show Summary:
We’re taking a “movie break” from the Dukes of Hazzard this episode and decided to focus our efforts on reviewing the very first movie of the “Fast” franchise, “The Fast and the Furious.” Finnegan freaking loves this movie. Why? Because it is essentially an automotive version of another great movie, Point Break, and just replaces the surf boards with cars. Everything else literally lines up though.
Here’s the proof: Cop infiltrates the suspects lair by going undercover and winning his trust and friendship. (Check.) Cop ends up in falling in love with and bedding the bad guy’s sister. (Check). Cop starts to see that the bad guy, while he does bad things, has his reasons. (Check.) Cop decides to let the bad guy have one last spiritual escape of surfing…er, drag racing, and then lets him go with apparently no consequences to his future law enforcement career. (Check.)
Front wheel drive hot rods litter this movie, and a ’70 Dodge Charger with a totally fake blower becomes the mascot of a film franchise that will go on to rake in billions. They even have launched a live stunt show in the UK.

Dream Board Update: Goals to Accomplish Before Episode 200
1. Get Diet Coke to Sponsor us….or just Kibbe.
2. Be characters in the Disney/Pixar movie, Cars 3. Finnegan is the General. Kibbe…is wishing he was the General.
3. Syndicate the show onto TV and radio, having awesome guests in studio, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. on regularly to be our best friend.
4. Get John Schneider himself on the show with us. Pray to God he actually likes us and isn’t freaked out.
5. Blow up the podcast so that it becomes a regular weekly show, interviewing celebrities, and actually providing a living for us capable of allowing us to race cars anytime we want plus let our wives get the shoes they like.
6. Get our own studio.
7. We each get a General Lee (real car – not a toy).
8. Get a Voiceover Guy to announce the segments.
9. Jump a car together. Kibbe wants to go 30-feet vertical.
10. Make a Dream GL that is based off of a 1973 NASCAR Charger (like the 1/16th scale AMT model)
11. Kibbe needs a new wallet to replace his “George Costanza”.
Mike to get a new truck for legit towing. DONE!
