Episode 03

Welcome to Episode #03 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 (with Stitcher coming soon), and from time to time we’ll also be posting video clips and (and even) full shows to Finnegan’s Garage on YouTube. For those of you that want the show on Android….we’re working on it (specifically via Stitcher). For now 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.

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! Have a question for the show? Just hit is up:

The 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.

Corndog’s Super Insider General Lee Notes:

-For the first 3/4 of the episode you really do not see much of the General but once the race starts, you get a full dose of the General Lee in action. They used a total of three Chargers in this episode… one ’69 and two ’68s. These are the three cars that were left over from filming in GA. The left over GA cars were beat on pretty hard for the first few CA episodes, and then repaired, and beat on some more.

-I believe the first scene of the General is when Bo is backing the car into the barn. Something about that exhaust sounds so good. This car is the ’69 and was referred to as “LEE3” during the GA episodes. You will notice the gas cap trim ring is still missing. Another thing is the lack of the cross flags behind the back glass. The cross flags were actually a cling on decal and in some of the GA close up scenes you can see the edges lifting. This is the same car that did all of the early promotional photos (w/o the 01 on the doors).

K&F Show Summary:

Bo and Luke enter the General Lee into an annual overland race where cheating, hitting, and stabbing is apparently fair game in order to win the race. Luke wins the rights to drive. A chick named Amy enters the race driving a Mustang named Lucifer. She also has a female mechanic. Fantastic 1970’s references about women’s abilities follow. Luke falls in love – in seconds – with her, asking her to commit to him but allowing him the “freedom” of fooling around with other women (remember – this is still Season 1 – and the wholesome values of the show haven’t kicked in yet.) Amy’s ex-boyfriend attempts to kill her during the race. Luke intervenes and stops him, but loses the race in the process. Boss Hogg’s dead mothers ashes are in the trophy cup for some reason. Hijinks ensue.
