Merry Christmas from The MuscleCar Place and have a Happy New Year!


Santa Claus:

Around the World in 24 Hours

Claus, Santa.

It is the end of 2021, and the Christmas episode of TMCP is live and features the most sought after guest (internationally) for this time of year: Santa Claus! This his his record breaking 13th year in a row, in fact. He makes it a point to come on this show every Christmas and marks this as the ONLY official media interview he does each year. That’s right…The MuscleCar Place has the exclusive! 

S Claus, Esquire

2021 was a great year at The Muscle Car Place with many awesome guests, experiences, and incredible sponsors supporting the show.  We even got to attend live events like Holley Moparty to meet our fans and make great new friends.

This year also pushed the edges of our show format with multiple live interviews from various locations around the country and multiple guest interviewers! I had a great time this year and I hope you had a fun listening in.

If you would like to hear any of Santa’s interviews from previous years, you can find them here on the website! It all started in 2009 with Episode 28, then followed annually with Episode 67, Episode 114, Episode 160, Episode 197Episode 233Episode 270 ,  Episode 307, Episode 343, Episode 379, Episode 416, and last Christmas in Episode 452. We even had Santa on for our gigantic bonanza Episode 300 Celebration show! You can literally follow Santa’s progress this Christmas Eve on or at Official Norad tracker

Thank you to everyone who made 2021 better than it could have been!

I am touched and you are the best!

The Real Reason for the Season!

Of course, the real reason for the season is the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. If the hustle and bustle of Christmas has you missing the point of it all, not to worry. Linus Van Pelt helped Charlie Brown with the same question a long time ago by reading Luke 2: 8-14 – and it’s shared in this episode as well. If you’ve been meaning to learn more about why that’s significant, or perhaps it’s something you walked away from a long time ago, know that you can always come home….and Christmas would be a terrific time to do it!

The Update with Larry Callahan!

We’re proud to say that this segment is sponsored by the fantastic muscle car and hot rod wiring supply company, Ron Francis Wiring, and we’re very appreciative that they are our show sponsor! Thanks, Ron Francis!

Year in Review: I go over some of the recent highlights and upcoming must attend events. Larry was tied up with some previous commitments that he just could not explain. He said he was preparing for a trip that would only take a day but he had some massive preparations to do for it. It’s a little curious to say the least!
The BIG Pro-Touring news right now is that Good Guys has announced a 25 year “rolling rule” procedure. This will allow any vehicle 25 years or older to enter a Good Guys show for the entire weekend! Believe it or not, but for 2022 that would mean that a 1997 or older vehicle would now be eligible.

Also, UMI has announced the King of the Mountain driver list for 2022. Scott Bowers from Ron Francis Wiring is on the list! 

As always, autocross and Pro-Touring events are featured at
