========================================

K&F Show Summary: We are back for 2024! Unfortunately, the first show of the year for us will kick off with a memorial tribute to the late great Cale Yarborough. Cale passed away on Dec 31, 2023. He was an ironman in NASCAR certainly, but many of us met him initially due to his guest starring roles during Season 2 and Season 7 of the Dukes of Hazzard.

Instead of re-reviewing both of these episodes we decided to dedicate this episode to telling the life story of Cale himself. (Full links to both of his episodes are below, and we encourage you to listen to them as well.)

There  will be facts here that some of you may know, but many of us didn’t. He was the first ever three-in-a-row NASCAR champion, a record only met (and then broken) by Jimmie Johnson. He won four Daytona 500’s, inclyding two back to back in 1983 and 1984. He pioneered CBS-TV’s use of the John Porter-Peter Larson in-car camera that could tilt and pan, footage of which was used in the Season 7 episode he appeared on during the Dukes.

He won the 1983 Daytona 500 in a backup car from a Hardees fast-good restaurant….after flipping his new-for-1983 Monte Carlo in qualifying at 204MPH. He taught himself how to fly an airplane. Possibly most famously, during the first ever flag-to-flag showing of the Daytona 500 on TV, he and the Bobby Allison got in a terrible fight after Cale and Donnie Allison (Bobby’s brother) wrecked for the win on the last lap.

RIP Cale.

K&F Movie Summary: Christmas Vacation

The last real family man Clark Griswold himself takes on Christmas. When I saw this movie in the theater in 1989 I was the age of Rusty. Now, I’m the age of Clark. I can relate to Clark….I love the lights, I underestimate a lot of things, and like Clark I just want to give my family the perfect Christmas. This movie spawns from the writing genius of John Hughes and the comedic delivery of Chevy Chase and Randy Quaid. Not only does it have the famous scene with the RV dumping into the street sewer, but it has all of the scenes that you can’t help but watch over and over again! Clark drives under a log truck, then gives a speech in the mall about logs that’ll leave you not seeing the line, his idiot cousin in law shows up to annoy him to death, but that huge beastly bulging man ends up bringing him the gift that Clark really needed – his Christmas bonus, and perspective on what really matters. This one is a mele kaliki mai of a good one and short of having the Baby Jesus in a manger, it has everything else I love about Christmas.

PERFECT 10 LITTLE DEBBIE CHRISTMAS TREE CAKES RATING.

K&F Show Summary:

Happy Thanksgiving! For 2023 our Thanksgiving spectacular is as full of seasonal automotive culture favorites as ever and it starts and ends with the greatest Thanksgiving car movie ever, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. We covered that in depth in the game show, but…..what we’re REALLY after is the cars that made John Hughes movies so memorable for gear-heads like his.

So, in addition to Thanksgiving PTA laced trivia, you can ALSO listen to our full rundown of the Hughes Cars that we developed in Episode 244. If that’s not enough and you have room for more, go back and listen to the original Planted Trains and Automobiles review from Kibbe and Finnegan Show #51!

K&F Show #274: Zip Tie Drags and the UAW Strike; Dukes Review S2E8 “Hazzard Connection”

Presented with Holley! 

Christmas is just around the corner…..and Santa is making his list and checking it twice. But lets be honest; do you really want to leave this one up to St. Nick? He’s a nice enough guy of course, but at this point he’s trying to help every kid on the planet while simultaneously not having to pay gift tax to the Feds on all of it. The IRS will get everyone, brother!

K&F Show Summary: 

Bo and Luke get conned – accidentally – by Cooter – into driving for a bad guy that’s being watched by the stage police, and possibly the feds. What’s he being watched for you ask? Human trafficking? Meth manufacturing and distribution? Ponzi schemes designed to keep little old ladies out of the old folks home and living in the gutter? No….none of those….he’s doing something far worse. This piece of human scum…..is selling…..stolen racing engines! He hides these sweet engines in demo derby cars to transport them out of the county and state, which keeps the feds easily at bay.

Bo and Luke get accused of being a part of it….and they have to drive demo derby cars as a result. And we dear viewers get treated to the sloppy General lee preparation that we love most in this early seasons, including the General Lee I love most – the one they pull up in the race track in. Paul Baxley brings in outstanding camera shots and jumps that would win him an Oscar today, and all is right with the world. 14-inch vectors for everyone!

K& Rating: 9.5 CornDogs.

K&F Show #272: MOPARTY Schedule Change; Double Feature Dukes Review S3E1 “Carnival of Thrills”

Presented by Holley!

BIG NEWS: MOPARTY is next week. We’ll be there and you should be too! Unfortunately, as announced in this show, due to no fault of James Smith there will no long be a General Lee jump or stunt show at the event. All other activities are on as planned, however.

https://moparty.com. We will see you there!

The Dukes of Hazzard – at the absolute height of it’s popularity and power bring us a double length episode featuring a plethora of terribly painted General Lee’s, a seriously annoying manipulative woman, Dukes fighting Dukes, and a lesson on parenting only Uncle Jesse could give. The Dukes go see a Joe Chitwood stunt show. (It’s not called that in the show directly for marketing reasons, but that’s what it is.) The show is run by it’s second generation owner Diane, a woman who will cuddle up to any man who be be her star attraction driver. When the most recent guy nearly gets killed she suckers Bo into being the next man in. Luke sees through it, Bo gets hot headed and punches everyone in the way, and Uncle Jesse is left to guide a situation he cannot stop, but must direct before his family explodes. Boss and the lead carnival guy both try to kill the General Lee in the process and fail, but the General does what he does best; gives his boys a fighting chance to win the day…and they do by making the 32 car jump.

K&F Show Summary: Finally – the political Dukes episode we’ve been waiting for! Kinda. If there was an episode that could combine Nathan Warren with Ben Jones portraying Cooter, this would be it. Cooter – with God’s blessed skills – steals President Jimmy Carter’s car.Bo and Luke get him out of it, but not before using their smoking hot cousin to position herself as a faux-prostitute to distract the bad guys. Who are the bad guys in this one you ask? Boss Hogg – who has a car theft and chop shop ring. And Boss thinks his guys stole the car and wants it recovered to meet Jimmy Carter personally, but in the end it’s Uncle Jesse that gets the call of thanks from the Oval Office. And before the episode is over we will once and for all know whether Boss and Uncle Jesse are Republicans or Democrats. The 2024 Presidential race had nothing on this!

K&F Show #270: Iowa Nice – Outlaw Dirt Karts and Bacon Wrapped Deep Fried Butter; Dukes Review S2E10 “Granny Annie”

Presented with Holley! BIG NEWS: tThe fall events at Holley are just around the corner and Holley MOPARTY is less than 60 days away. We’ll be there and you should be too! We are ONCE AGAIN the media partner for the General Lee jump, too!

BIGGER NEWS: the all new 5-wire hookup Sniper 2.0 EFI is here and yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus! The list of upgraded features is extensive, but long story short this is about to make something that was revolutionary even easier. Like the original Sniper it’s designed to work with a myriad of ignition and transmission options from basic points to fill timing control with transmission kickdown provision. It even has an integration for a PDM (Power Data Module), a feature that’ll make your life a magical wonderland when you have multiple components that all need a clean 12V power source and access to switched power.

Just visit Holley.com to peruse and view for yourself and be SURE to tell them that we sent you!

K&F Show Summary: This one is a WINNER! You can summarize this episode with this: “Come on General, Get it Up!” The Dukes, Rosco, Daisy, Uncle Jesse, a substitute Cooter, a grandmother, and a random Playboy Playmate of the month all work together to keep Boss Hogg from being murdered. The bad guys get some engraving plates – made by starving artist Granny Annie – so that they can counterfeit $5 bills. Granny accidentally pays Bo and Luke with phony money, they get busted for it, Boss Hogg gets the plates from Granny, Bo and Luke steal them back, they save his life, the end.

Also in this episode….some wicked door impacts on the General Lee and the record setting 230-foot long Oxnard train jump by Al Wyatt. If that’s not enough, the episode begins – yes – BEGINS with the Oak Ridge Boys doing some lip syncing like lips have never been synced before. And then James Best puts on an acting clinic that leaves the show telling the moral if always helping a friend in need, not matter what they’ve done to you. Put it all together and you have a tidy little episode.

10 Dogs.

Note: This movie review originally aired in Episode 99 of the Kibbe and Friends Show! 

K&F Show Summary: In the mind of Corndog, this movie is the ’69 Charger movie of movies. I think he’d even rather have a DMCL (screen used) Charger than a screen used General Lee. He’s crazy, because this super weird 1974 box office smash starring Peter Fonda is a whacked-out example of what happens when directors and actors all use drugs while making a movie. The only redeeming thing is the stunts and the Charger. Al Wyatt, Jr is in it though, so maybe this is where he and the Charger first melded together to form the most dynamic duo ever on automotive cinematic history. Watch it for the car stunts and the helicopter flying and skip the rest. (Editor’s Note: Kibbe is the only one of the three of us that feel this way, but since he’s the guy that types this stuff up his opinion is what counts the most, apparently.)

KF Show Summary: If there were ever an episode where I learned the love of a good car, it was this! Luke gets hypnotized into selling the General Lee so that Boss can have it demolished (i.e. murdered) and out of his life, once and for all. And as the smartest and best shot Duke boy….he does what no one else could do; not Boss, Rosco, Uncle Jesse, the President of the United States, or even Bo…..he gets rid of the General. And by doing so unknowingly sentences the General to death. And when it looks like the General is indeed doomed, Cooter without hesitation gambles his life to get the General back – and wins. And then Luke comes to his senses. And then he without hesitation gambles his life to save the General. And wins. All to save the life of a car….that as we know is just an inanimate object, but for some reason seems as alive to us as our dog. We’ve all had a car or a truck that we knew we loved and that loved us back. This episode sends that home.This is also the episode that we see the new look of the General that will last until the show ends. 10 Dogs.

KF Show Summary: On our quest for a Father’s Day episode we decided to review this one! This is the episode where Luke, an ex boxer in the Marines who nearly accidentally killed someone, has to choose his Uncle Jesse’s farm or to trade his soul. And he can’t choose either. Uncle Jesse knows that he has a dilemma to help Luke with, but instead of giving him the answer (which he COULD d0), he helps Luke learn how to make an impossible decision on his own. Because that’s what fathers do best; teach their kids how to make the tough decisions and be better for it. And then Luke punches the bad guy out, wins the farm anyway, and Jack Gill makes jumping history in the General Lee with the first ever “bungee” suspension vest. 10 Dogs.
