K&F Show Summary:

Note: In honor of Valentine’s Day 2024 we gave Bernie the keys to the show and told him to make a re-run episode! Listen in for a rundown of whatever Valentine’s Day stuff that Bern came up with….which is probably super duper weird, but kind of adorable too. Following that is a re-broadcast of our review of “Cleetus Falls in Love” from KF Episode 252. Godspeed. -Kibbe and Corndog 

Poor Cleetus makes the mistake of being #MeToo’d by Daisy Dukes, and his heart has to pay the price until she finally confesses to using her sexuality for personal gain. Poor Cleetus. But, love know no boundaries – and just like Cleetus we all have to take the high road and go on to date a bank teller anyway. This episode features Sheriff Little and is the second episode after the shift to the wide push bar General Lee. Also noted in this episode, no-one suffered from food poisoning and was stricken with vomiting and diarrhea for 4 hours straight.

See you soon. Join up via Patreon at patreon.com/KFSHOW

Kibbe, Corndog, and the Bern!

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: 

K&F Show Summary: This mid-month episode features a “re-run” of our movie review of Cannonball Run from Episode 85 of the Kibbe and Finnegan Show. Call us lazy, but it’s comedy gold. It also kept us from working too hard this week. Or at all. Enjoy. 

This show features our review of the movie Cannonball Run, but it’s really more of a tribute to the late great Burt Reynolds who passed away a few years ago. We loved Burt’s crazy car movies and Cannonball Run was as zany as it ever got. The premise and screen play were a credit to automotive journalist Brock Yates (who makes a cameo in this movie), and then Burt, Dom DeLuise, and Hal Needham took of from there. Alter ego superheroes, cross-eyed proctologists, inappropriate humor (by today’s standards) and ambulances with straight headers are all you need to know. Thanks for the fun, Burt!
K& Rating: 9.5 CornDogs.

K&F Show #262: We Don’t Have Friends…we have Family. The OG Movie Review of “The Fast and the Furious”

Presented with Holley! https://www.holley.com

Holley is the company behind Nitrous Oxide Systems…..but thanks to the FF Franchise it’s better known as “NOS” (pronounced “nawsss”). It’s exactly what you think it is, and it does exactly what you think it does. Need a 125HP shot on your 200 horse daily driver? Go for it. It’s America, bro!  Check it out here: https://www.holley.com/products/nitrous

Check out the brand new KF Show Shirt! It’s the CNH 320 Edition: https://teechip.com/themusclecarplaceK&F Movie Summary: With the premier of Fast X this weekend we decided that it was time to feature, nay, prepare for the onslaught of awesomeness that is coming. Accordingly, please enjoy our fully loaded rundown of Fast and Furious franchise trivia followed by the original review of the original movie (from Episode 44 of the Kibbe and Finnegan Show. ) Finnegan loved the movie. He also loved mini trucks. You be the judge.

This of course is a 20-plus year automotive franchise that took bunch of VCR and DVD player thieves to the stratosphere of international spies…..and proved that you can somehow do a burnout – AND a wheelie – and the same time. Jack Gill – who got his bones in the stunt world via the Dukes of Hazzard – has been the stunt coordinator for this series….and even Dukes stunt man Corey Eubanks was involved in the flipping of the bus in Fast 5. More importantly, this series pays attention to US. You’ll always see a car or two in here – sometimes in a major roll, that came right off the SEMA Show floor. 

Fast X was supposed to be the finale of the series….but, just like those damn Marvel movies, this series prints money.
Picture Car Coordinator Dennis McCarthy has basically figured out how to make ‘68-’70 Chargers from carbon fiber and cheez-whiz at this point, so we say keep e’m coming!

K&F Show #261: The Super Ultimate Extra Spectacular Car Culture Movie Review: American Graffiti!

Presented with Holley! https://www.holley.com

Holley digs fun, speed, and deals……and so do we! If John Milner were still alive today he would probably be a healer of Holley parts….and he would DEFINITELY have upgraded to electronically controlled exhaust cutouts. Holley calls them the “Attitude Adjuster.” We call them, “God Bless America!”

Check out the brand new KF Show Shirt! It’s the CNH 320 Edition: https://teechip.com/themusclecarplaceK&F Movie Summary: If Corndog were transported in time, this is where he’d end up. I get it now. American Graffiti is about a time when cars, car culture, cruising, and podcasters – which back then were called Radio Disc Jockeys – ruled and ruled supreme. This movie made actors into stars, in many cases – lifelong big time MOVIE Stars. Featuring Ron Howard,Paul Le Mat, Richard Dreyfus, and a young carpenter pulled back into acting by a friend – Harrison Ford, this is the tale of a yellow ‘32 Deuce against a big block ‘55 Chevy. Or is it? By the time this is done, you might be wondering if ‘58 Chevy’s are on the comeback….or if the whole movie was a setup for the 1980 Disney Classic “Herbie Goes Bananas,” co starting Terry the Toad himself, Charles Martin Smith. More so, American Graffiti is the launchpad of Star Wars….because as a result of this movie, George Lucas would have a blank checkbook for the rest of his life to do whatever he wanted. 10-stars.

K&F Show #260: The OG Corndog Interview (circa 2014) – All the Screen Used General Lee’s Left!

Presented with Holley! https://www.holley.com

Normally our presentation for Holley features a kick-ass Holley event or a kick-ass Holley speed part, but in this episode we’d like to thank a kick-ass Holley person who (as of May 5) will be moving on to newer endeavors. Specifically, we’d like to publicly acknowledge and thank Bryan McTaggart for the time we’ve been able to work together. Bryan is one of the many voices at Holley that you’ve certainly read on MotorLife, but his collaboration with US specifically over the years has been pretty epic. If you like flying orange Chargers, know that you have a friend in Bryan too. Thanks, Bryan!

Check out the brand new KF Show Shirt! It’s the CNH 320 Edition: https://teechip.com/themusclecarplaceIn this KF episode, kick back to hear a feature interview that will tickle the ear drums and whatever the thing is that makes that “ASMR” stuff so brain-tingly appealing. Specifically, in this one we are re-playing the very first “OG” discussion between Kibbe and Corndog, circa 2014. It was a feature interview on The MuscleCar Place back during a simpler time, and a time when young Corndog was just stretching his might of General Lee knowledge into the internetspehere. Kibbe tracked him down due to his mighty flexing of knowledge on Dukes of Hazzard forums and had to know how this guy knew so much about the General Lee.

Long story short, it was this interview that launched the era of Dukes of Hazzard nerdlandia into The MuscleCar Place podcast network in a permanent way. The KF Show as we know if today (and Kibbe Lee) are all a result!

Also….we couldn’t record a “regular” show this week and had to pun next week. We needed to run something….so here ya go. The Bernie on the News is new and fun though, and thanks to Jason Roberts for hanging out with Bernie last week.

Enjoy!

K&F Show #257: Fried Easter Bunny and Women’s NCAA Tourney; Dukes Review – S2E19 “Jude Emery”

Presented with Holley! It’s time to look forward to spring break. How about April 28-30 in Las Vegas at Holley LS Fest West?? If an LS based (or current generation LT V8) engine is powering your ride or if you are considering a swap to LS power, this is your event! Race cars, street rods, muscle cars, trucks, late models, drift cars, prerunners, Ultra 4 buggies – you name it, if it is powered by an LS/LT there will be something here for you! Just visit Holley.com to peruse and view for yourself and be SURE to tell them that we sent you!

KF Show Summary: Just a year after debuting, the Dukes was now so popular that it was the launch point for spinoff series. about a Texas Ranger named Jude Emery who “cut it a little different” but could “still cut it!” Jude came to Hazzard to arrest hijacker Snake Harmon complete with a non functional gun, a guitar that was really a suitcase, and a Korean War surplus transport vehicle that runs so poorly that Jude keeps a horse saddle in the back just in case. This is another example of the Dukes of Hazzard debuting a fantastic idea that would later go on to be reality elsewhere (I’m looking at you, Chuck Norris). This is quite possibly the *coolest* episode of the Dukes ever made! Some episodes are bigger on stunts and some are shorter on shorts, but none are as cool and as fun. Also, Dick York from Bewitched is in here as temporary Sheriff Grady Bird (because James Best was on strike), and actor Sam Melville makes his first appearance as a bad-guy-of-the-week (he’ll be back in two more episodes). Rating: 10 Corndogs!

KF Movie Review: To commemorate our 250th episode we bring you Cannonball Run 2. By today’s standards it’s crass, racist, sexist, and a hilariously offensive automotive escape from reality. Back then though, it just was a crass yet hilarious automotive escape from reality. It stars everyone fun and funny from 1984 as you would expect from Burt Reynolds to Don Knotts to Frank Sinatra. If you liked the first Cannonball Run you’ll love this one….because it’s the same movie. Again. The Rigatoni’s and Fettuccine are in the mob, people pretending to be sheiks only because they have big noses, and John Schneider’s personal Lamborghini Countach makes an appearance with Catherine Bach! The cars are as big as the stars and they do what cars do best: slide and fly. This movie was hated by Siskel and Ebert because they hated movies that don’t make you think. But we don’t need to think. We never did. 10-Stars.

K&F Show #249: Feature Interview with Tom Wopat, Car Movies in 2023, and National Parts Depot Presents Bernie (and the News)!

Presented with Holley! Christmas is over and it’s time to look forward to spring break. How about April 28-30 in Las Vegas at Holley LS Fest West?? If an LS based (or current generation LT V8) engine is powering your ride or if you are considering a swap to LS power, this is your event!

Tom Wopat is here! With our man Corndog gone this week (to do “parenting” stuff) we knew we had to do something big….so we replaced him with Dukes of Hazzard legend Tom Wopat! Well….actually, we after last week’s show we realized that, like Corndog, Tom’s favorite seasons of the Dukes dated back to Season 1 as well for most of the same reasons. So, it seemed only fitting to replay his one and only appearance on our show from 2019 (Episode 102). Tom went from being a farm-kid in Wisconsin dreaming of playing for the Green Bay Packers, to being a lead on Broadway, becoming Luke Duke, and back to Broadway. There’s something for everyone in here – and plenty of Dukes insight as well!

National Parts Depot Presents: Bernie on the News: Also in this episode….the good people at National Parts Depot have to decided 2023 is the year to present the Award Winning Newsman Bernie McPartland in his (self-proclaimed) award winning news segment, Bernie On the News. As most of you know, NPD is the title sponsor of The MuscleCar Place Podcast and has been since 2011. Their immense support of TMCP as a show (and as a company) can’t be overshadowed. And now, the fact that they are presenting Bern in the drivers seat for the world to hear….is somewhat humbling. And by humbling, we mean frightening, terrifying, sickening, etc. Welcome, NPD (and Bern, don’t screw this up)!

Corndog’s Dukes Review: Well, this is kinda how I see it… y’all are all about some Hallmark movies this time of year… so this was about the closest thing to it….“An independent strong-willed girl comes to town… she falls in love with a local boy who is sometime wild and hard to tame. He falls in love with her too, but knows that it’s gonna be hard to change his ways and settle down. But wait… ole girl’s ex-boyfriend followed her into town and doesn’t want to see the new relationship flourish! So local wild boy steps in to protect ole girl and save her honor. They kiss… tell each other how much they love each other…… and then she skips town, never to be seen or heard of again”.
