Episode 50 Milestone: GOAL REVIEW
We made it to episode 50 – we’re still friends – and we’re still having fun – and less people hate the show that first saw it on YouTube! In celebration of that, today’s witty banter is dedicated to talking through our original show goals that we made back in Episode 1 (and that are at the bottom of this post). A few didn’t work, well, nearly all of them didn’t work, but the one with John Schneider….is about to!
We also did a full segment on Bad Dad jokes. Apologies in advance for that.

Dukes of Hazzard S3E11: State of the County
K&F Show Summary:
They say to keep your friends close and your enemies even closer. On the flip side of that, sometimes your enemies just want to kill you if you won’t give them your money. In this episode that’s basically the whole plot. Boss Hogg gets pressured by the supreme dictator from a neighboring county who (like Boss Hogg) is also in complete control of every nefarious business action that happens there. Basically, it’s like the mob. Only they respect the county lines of Georgia for some reason. Anyway, the Bad Guy Boss tries to kill the Good Guy Buss by having his handsome hitman Earl come to Hazzard to blow stuff up until the Good Guy Boss relents. Daisy falls in love with Earl on first site and later flips a car to put him in jail. Then the Oak Ridge Boys play a song. The End.

Corndog’s Super Insider Analysis:
On the last episode (podcast), you had an email from someone asking if any Daytona’s were used on the Dukes. For the most part, you are exactly right. When I visited the Veluzats in California, the topic of Daytona’s came up. One of the brothers confirmed that no Daytona’s were used during the time they built cars for the show… and I would feel confident in saying that none were used thereafter. But… they also told a story about one time they were searching for cars to purchase… and there was an ad in the paper for two ’69 Dodge Charger Daytona’s. If I remember correctly, they were about $800ea. The Veluzat brothers went to look at the cars and after studying the construction of the car, they determined that it would have been too much work to try and convert the Daytona’s into a stock-appearing Charger. They even joked by saying they “saved two Daytona’s by not turning them into General’s”.
Another interesting Veluzat story… that kind of goes along with the last one… I was told by a very reliable source that the Veluzat’s actually used a real Hemi Charger R/T on the show. I am not sure if it was a ’68 or a ’69… but it was a legit Hemi car. They purchased the car as a complete rolling body minus engine/trans. They just pulled a big block and 727 out of one of the wrecked cars and put it to use. I was told this by someone who would frequently stop by the Veluzat’s with his father (who was a big mopar nut). One of the crew members told them about it, so they walked all over the lot, looking at VINs, to see if they could find it. After not being able to find the car, the crew member said that there were two trucks that left earlier in the morning. One truck was loaded with junk totals and the other truck was headed to the filming location with fresh cars… and that the car they were looking for would have been on one of the two trucks. And as you can guess… this car eventually found it’s way to the big junkyard in the sky.
Now for my review of this episode.. just like the last episode, this one really didn’t have much to pull from. There were a couple soft jumps, a ski-stunt, and a pipe ramp stunt by Cooter’s “ND” car at the end of the episode. I remember this episode being one that was more frequently re-aired on CMT & TNN… so I kinda got tired of seeing it. I always thought it was interesting how Daisy falls head over heels for any guy that is just passing through town, and stays for a few days. Her flings are always “the bad guy” and at some point in each episode, she is ready to spit fire at Bo and Luke for thinking anything remotely negative about “said guy”.
I did notice something at 15:39 – When Buzz Bundy puts the GL up on two wheels, as the car is coming back down on all four, you can see that the car actually has the ’68 emblems on the grille. Not that they’re are noticeable different… it is just that on a ’68, the “Charger” emblem is mounted on the center grille section… whereas on the ’69, the “Charger” emblem is mounted on the headlight door. I have attached a screen shot if it helps. More than likely, the car has ’68 grille assembly with the center I-piece section wire-tied into place.
Dream Board Update: Goals to Accomplish Before Episode 200
1. Get Diet Coke to Sponsor us….or just Kibbe. FAILED 2. Be characters in the Disney/Pixar movie, Cars 3. Finnegan is the General. Kibbe…is wishing he was the General. FAILED.
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. NOV 2017: THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN!
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!
