Dukes Review: Before I say the following about this season 7 episode, there are two miniature jumps in this episode and that makes me sad. And then there is a real jump that’s redeeming, but it’s recycled. And the General Lee is barely in this episode, which is bad. But with all that said, this episode is awesome. It’s not Season 2-3 magic, it’s no Carnival of Thills, it’s not the one where Bo got amnesia and thought he was Boss Hogg’s son, it’s certainly not Happy Birthday General Lee…..but this is a really great episode.

Summary: Bo and Luke get caught by some corrupt southern law, and that corrupt southern law does what it does best…..show off. They get sentenced to a road gang, in fact, and while it’s certainly fully intended to be a Cool Hand Luke ripoff, it works! They escape, wrongs are righted; the end.

From a production standpoint this episode is really terrific. It gives us outstanding REAL FOOTAGE SCENES of John and Tom driving…..and the General saves the day with Catherine Bach behind the wheel. The acting in this episode is so believable, so real, you will almost forget you’re watching the Dukes of Hazzard. Almost.

9 Season 7 Corndogs (Note: Season 7 Corndogs have ⅓ o ½ the value of other seasons Corndogs.)

TMCP Milestone #500 Celebration: Ask Rick – All About the Low Volume Vehicle Manufacturers Act!

Happy April Fools Day! Believe it or not, but we don’t have any fun pranks to pull for you this year….but it absolutely IS time for another insightful, thoughtful, and surprising edition of Ask Rick! This time took a deep dive on the topic a LOT of you want to know more about: the SEMA Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act. The law itself was passed in 2015, but it took over six years (and a second SEMA lawsuit) to get the NHTSA to finally give the ruling needed to make it a reality. It now us, and manufacturers can begin the process of producing up to 325 cars per year…..legally, at least.

K&F Show #216: 2022 Daytona 500; Movie Review – Days of Thunder

Presented with Holley! Visit Holley.com and make SURE you tell them we sent you!

Movie Review: Days of Thunder! The team that brought you Top Gun, brings you Top Car – better known as Days of Thunder. Both movies feature a wildly talented but undisciplined rebel who is as awesome with driving machinery as he is with the ladies. Both feature a helmet-less motorcycle riding Tom Cruise as the lead who goes through massive success riding his own ego….until his butt can’t cash them when he gets hurt – in one case just mentally, and in the other physically. Both leave him scared to re-engage at the thing he does best…until he basically resolves it in about 20 seconds by realizing….he’d damn well better or his friends were going to die in one case, and in the other they’d just be super bummed they lost the race…and move on with life. Whatever.

Both feature a wise father figure Tom Cruise at first rejects the authority of, then later craves the leadership and approval from. Both have Val Kilmer as Iceman playing the uber talented and more successful nemesis turned friend….except in Days of Thunder it’s Michael Rooker playing Rowdy Burns, both have an amazing failure on the first try to woo the leading lady, and both have a dead goose scene…except in days of thunder it was just a bird run over by a rental car. This is the most perfect racing movie of all however, and even today still is adored by fans – and NASCAR drivers – including the current reigning NASCAR Cup Series Champion who goes by the name of Rowdy Busch…and runs number 51 on his own race cars outside of the Cup Series. This is the movie that proves to get the girls, you gotta go fast, and if you’re from California you’re not really a yankee…you’re not really from anywhere.

KF SHOW Summary: Episode 200 is upon us….and so is Finnegan. Bernie and i had hoped this would be the intervention to get Finn and Corndog on (at a minimum) decent terms together. That fizzed, then failed. At least it was entertaining along with way. Tune in for a full run down of where we started, what we succeeded in, which sponsors came and went, and why Dodge Chargers are good for everyone. Thanks for coming back for our anniversary show, dude!

Movie Review: This is it! If you have been waiting months or years for us to finally review this movie, your days of suffering are now over. Here it is in all it’s glory. This may be the perfect movie for a show like ours to actually review because,  #1 – it’s dumb,  #2 – it’s funny, #3 – it has great cars, and #4 – this movie is told, in audio story form, from a radio station, with everyone glued to their audio listening device.  This was a time when real stars were on the radio….which we’re just going to claim as old-school form of a podcast.  It may also be (in a way) the redneck cousin sequel to our favorite movie Tommy Boy as well (listen in for details).

TMCP #458: Tom Rightler, the Chevelle Doctor: Performing Top Notch OEM Restorations!

This week I spoke to Tom Rightler, founder of Mid Atlantic Muscle Cars in Bridgeton, NJ. Tom is know for his excellence in restoring most muscle cars, but specifically Chevelle’s. Tom’s dad was a mechanic for thirty years so he grew up around cars and wrenching on them for fun. Like a lot of us, cars were his escape and relaxation! He walked into his first job in a family owned office supply business, learned the trade, and stayed there for years as his hobby turned into a very successful “side hustle.” Detail and accuracy became his trademark and over the course of a decade he became a well known name in the Chevelle restoration world. He even went to night school…just to learn body work, welding, and painting!

K&F Show #172: Death of Chuck Yeager; Dukes of Hazzard S5E21 Review “Farewell Hazzard” – The Most AWESOME Dukes Episode ever?

Pop Culture: Chuck Yeager has died. Listen in for a tribute to a pilot from another era that loved duty above all else. An A-1, all American, total bad ass!

Dukes Review: This episode is AWESOME! It has everything: Duke genealogy, aerial stunts, maps of Hazzard, a strange bad guy (lady) that is rich, successful, driven, and so cool she has a huge gap in her front teeth. The plot revolves are strip mining Hazzard for coal deposits and a helicopter fighting the General Lee! It’s great, so great in fact that when they wrote the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard movie they just took the plot from this episode and added a race to it. Really. It’s awesome. 10 Corndogs.

TMCP #446: Holley MOPARTY 2020 Special #3 – Richard Meyers, The Very First Charger 500 – Tim Wellborn, Driving the K&K Insurance Daytona in the Footsteps of Legends – Pro-Touring Update with Larry Callahan

This week is the third of several interviews from the first ever Holley “MOPARTY” event held in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Friend of the show (and Holley marketing superstar) Blane Burnett was able to line us up with some great interviews at the event with some famous people. MOPAR lovers young and old will recognize the names of many of our guests. Since SEMA was a no go this year, I was determined to make the Holley MOPARTY a better than fitting replacement to our yearly special segments live from the event. The episode features the VERY FIRST Charger 500 ever built as well as the world famous (and Bonneville record setting) K&K Dodge Daytona!
