Welcome to Episode #80 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!

Guess what? We have a new shirt…and it features an actual jumping car and everything! If you would like to support the show in a really tangible way (i.e. to buy something), 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!
Dukes Review – S4E6: “The Great Bank Robbery”
If you’re thinking this is the one where Daisy falls in love, or that this is the one where the Dukes almost lose the farm, or whatever the third regularly used plot line is, you are in for a treat. This has none of those. And other than a sweet drift and a sickening crash into a tree it barely has any General Lee either. We didn’t love it, so here’s the summary. An old man that you’ve never seen before (or will again) gets fired by Boss Hogg, one day shy of shy 30 years on the job. This makes him ineligible for his $30,000 pension. So, he robs the bank vault of the $30K. The Dukes put it back before Boss notices. The end.
Legit Episode Info:
Season 4 – Episode 6: “The Great Bank Robbery”
Written by Fred Freiberger
Directed by Denver Pyle
Original Airdate: 11/6/1981
Corndog’s Insider Dukes of Hazzard Episode Specific Nerd Trivia:
I actually liked this episode, and remember it well. It had a decent amount of car chase footage, but it just didn’t give me much to pull. On the scene where the General Lee smacks the tree really hard… for whatever reason, I remember that scene VERY well as a kid (from re-runs).
5:43 – At the beginning of the episode, when the Dukes get to town… they climb out of the car and tell Daisy that she has exactly 2 min to get back from the bakery, while they go to the bank. Before Bo and Luke walk off, Daisy gives Bo a swift slap to the backside. Who says that Tom and John were the only one to flirt. Judging by the smirks of both of their faces, you’d think something was going on between them… or they were just playing around and trying to make the other laugh.
9:35 – When Clarence Stovall pulls up to the Duke farm, the car he is driving is a 1970 Dodge Coronet.
30:40 – When Clarence tries to make a get-away in Daisy’s Jeep, and the Dukes get him to stop… notice that this General Lee did not have a roll bar. Usually, when Denver Pyle rode in the General, they would almost always remove the roll bar. This way he was able to get in and out of the car (on camera) without too much trouble.
34:46 – When Rosco climbs up in the loft (Cooter’s Garage) to look for Bo and Luke, and sticks his head out the window… as the camera pans back, you can clearly see the microphone in the left side of the shot.
Not much info, but I liked it… I still give it a solid 7

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. FAILED
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).
Kibbe has one!
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!
