TMCP #469: Mike Finnegan Returns! Giant Passenger Flipping Tow Pigs, “Ludicrous Speed” Boats, and the Fun of Failing Uphill

This week, marks the return yet again of Mike Finnegan to give us an update on what has been happening around Finnegan’s Garage, on Roadkill, and on his recently renewed show Faster with Finnegan. Of course his most famous work was on the Kibbe and Finnegan Podcast. Seriously though, Mike has been a good friend over the years and it’s always a fun (and usually happily dumb) catchup. 

TMCP #457: Mike Finnegan Returns – Zany 200 MPH Cadillacs, Hemi Powered ’55 Chevy’s, and YouTube Stardom Tricks!

This week I caught up with a very special friend of the show, Mike Finnegan. I met Mike on The Hot Rod Power Tour in 2015. That later fostered into a friendship that launched the Kibbe and Finnegan Podcast in 2016 (which today is the Kibbe and Friends Show). Mike’s best known as the host of popular automotive shows Roadkill (Motor Trend), Finnegan’s Garage (YouTube), and Faster with Finnegan (Motor Trend). More importantly than all that, he’s LOVES to make hilariously fun automobile projects with his friends and share them with the world. That’s the subject of today’s discussion!

K&F Show #41: The Hazzardville Horror – S3 Episode 3 of The Dukes of Hazzard!

For those of you that love the “witty banter” portion of this episode, be prepared for everything you’ve ever wanted to know in regards to watching the great Solar Eclipse of 2017, how to correctly launch a drag boat to music, and what count of the clock to look for to step on to the football field if you’re leading a drumline. Also – the triumphant return of the game “Guess Who’s Birthday!

At some point in every great TV show series run they do the holiday episode series. This time around it’s Halloween and it’s all centered around the Haunted House in Hazzard. The house is occupied by a set of small time thieves running a smelting operation in the basement to melt down their stolen silver.  Everything is going great until a pretty girl returns to Hazzard to claim the house from her long lost Uncle. With me so far? Bo & Luke get blamed, the house scares people, and somehow it leads to the General Lee jumping a lake and ending up on a postcard received by hundreds of thousands of kids in the early 1980’s. Boom. Best summary ever! Hijinks ensue.

K&F Show #40: Our Review of Keanu Reeves in “The Replacements”…..and We Have Sweet New Shirts!

We took a quick break from the Dukes to do a movie review, this time choosing “The Replacements” – the awesome 2000 movie starring Gene Hackman, Keanu Reeves, Jon Favreau, and a number of other greats – including Roy from “The Office” (I forget his name – the guy that was Pam’s boyfriend before Jim Halpert). This movie is the story we all want; a chance to live up to the potential of something that we loved from our youth and maybe came close to achieving, but for whatever reason failed at, or it fizzled out, or it just ended for reasons we couldn’t control. Keanu is honestly pretty good as a south-paw quarterback and it’s a great movie full of inspirational one-liners you’ll love to quote. Here’s one for you: “Pain heals, Chicks Dig Scars, and Glory Lasts Forever.” K&F Show Rating: 8 Corndogs

K&F Show #29: Find Loretta Lynn – S2 Episode 18 of The Dukes of Hazzard!

We need your help! We need some general info to give to potential advertisers. We know – it’s a pain…but it would seriously help us out. Click here to fill it out (please only do it once):

Imagine this: Boss Hogg discovers that Loretta Lynn, the “First lady of country music,” will be passing through the state of Georgia en route to…somewhere that probably doesn’t matter. He uses the opportunity to force her to come to Hazzard where he can profit from her presence by selling wigs that make people look like her. It’s a stretch, I know. Coincidentally, a trio of folk singers that were wronged by a Nashville recording company choose to kidnap Loretta, hold her for ransom, and then collect their lost music money back from the Nashville dream-stealers. At some point the Dukes get blamed and in righting the wrongs end up flipping the General on it’s lid for some reason. Not to worry, the General is fine in the next scene. Hijinks ensue.

K&F Show #28: Officer Daisy Duke – S2 Episode 17 of The Dukes of Hazzard!

Big News! From now until May 5, 2017 we are running a giveaway contest for a TRAXXAS Slash! Entry is free and easy. Visit for details.

This is classic “Hatfield-goes-to-work-for-the McCoy’s” tale. Daisy gets fired from the Boars Nest when asking for a raise. Luckily for her, at that exact time the state of Georgia just put in place an equal rights memorandum that puts Boss in need of hiring a female police officer. You can see where this is going. Boss tries to frustrate her by having her do lowly “women’s work”, she then solves the big crime anyway and catches the bad guys, and it turns out she is a better cop than Rosco and Enos combined. Then she goes back to selling beer because the tip money of people looking at her legs is stellar. Not enough General Lee in here for our tastes, but it’s good anyway. Hijinks ensue.

K&F Show #26: Follow That Still – S2 Episode 15 of The Dukes of Hazzard!

Big News! From now until May 5, 2017 we are running a giveaway contest for a TRAXXAS Slash! Entry is free and easy. Visit for details.

The Dukes help an habitually-making-moonshine-but-constantly-getting-caught friend of Uncle Jesse’s by the name of “Hard Luck” after he steals Boss Hogg’s new tank. Technically I guess it’s an “APC” and not a tank, but who cares. It shoots stuff and drives on tracks. Anyway, Boss bought the tank to hide stolen cigarettes in as a place to resell them from. Hard Luck steals the tank to make his moonshine inside of it, thereby giving him a portable manufacturing facility that will be hard to catch by the Feds. As you may have guessed, he didn’t know about the contraband cigs, the tank breaks down on the Dukes land, and the world will come to an untimely end unless they get rid of the evidence. There’s not enough General Lee action in this one for our taste, but it’s still good fun. Hijinks ensue.

K&F Show #14: The Meeting – S2 Episode 4 of The Dukes of Hazzard!

The mob shows up. The freaking mob. Why? Because they need a place for all of the crime bosses to meet – and they know through previous moonshine dealings that Boss Hogg will give them cover to do so. They claim to be working on their new project – a toy company product – but are really there to take back from their sons their old businesses of gun running, gambling, prostitution, and all sort of tomfoolery. The Dukes find the guns, decide to intervene to save the general public, and defeat the mob without a hitch by trapping them in a net that (somehow) thwarts off bullets. The mobsters all wear pinstripe suits. The General Lee jumps (twice). Daisy fakes skinny dipping. Hijinks ensue.

K&F Show #13: The Rustlers – S2 Episode 3 of The Dukes of Hazzard!

The Dukes help some super poor neighbors get their super-secret and uber fast horse entered into a race. If they win the race the massive amount of proceeds will solve all of their worldly problems (crushing mortgage stress, morning breath, etc.). The catch? The race has been commissioned by Boss Hogg who will for numerous reasons attempt to screw everyone out of happiness so that he may pad his own pockets. Even zanier is when out-ot-town horse thieves get into the mix too. The General races a horse (General wins). Boss mocks his wife’s weight. Hijinks ensue.
