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!

K&F Show Summary: 

Happy Hazzard-o-ween! This isn’t a specifically dedicated Halloween episode….but it may as well be. Whilst Bo and Luke are hiding from Rosco they get naked and go skinny dipping…leaving their clothes in the General Lee. Seconds later the General is stolen by two crooked gamblers who jump the car (and the clothes) in the pond. Rosco and Enos assume it was Bo and Luke all along, find their clothes, assume they were dismembered, and hijinks ensue when Boss frames them for theft of ….something. Doesn’t matter what. Anyway, to clear themselves they pretend to still be dead and trick Rosco into believing their spirits inhabit the General Lee, which now glows in the dark and appears to drive by itself. Wrongs are righted and it’s nice, funand spooky Halloween episode all around.

TMCP #551: Live From RoadKill Nights 2023 – Special Feature with Dodge! Interior and Exterior Design, 2024 Charger, Direct Connection, and Marketing for the USA!

This special bonus episode on The Muscle Car Place is brought to you live once again from the streets of Pontiac, Michigan! Our journeyman reporter Scott Stap was roadside at Woodard Avenue where the streets were closed and setup for LEGAL street drag racing at the annual RoadKill Nights event, presented by Dodge. Every year this event brings action, excitement, and new automotive experiences to Michigan (and visitors from other Midwestern states) automotive enthusiasts!

This episode is from “press day” where grudge match racers were introduced to reveal their drag race cars. Friday was a media only event and Scott was able to get his recorder and microphones in to talk to more Dodge insiders for a behind the scenes look at how the “donuts” of a muscle-car-loving OEM are actually. This was before Roadkill Nights opened to the public and there were a lot of people to talk to in a short period of time. He talked to old friends that have been on the show before as well as interviewing new guests that provided different angles and aspects of how Dodge designs and sells new muscle.

K&F Show #271: Guitar Hero with Car Horns; Dukes Review S1E9 “Limo One is Missing”

Presented by Holley! Phase 3 of Kibbe and Friends is officially here, and Holley is back for more fun, foolishness, and flying orange Chargers!

BIG NEWS: The 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!

Visit this website RIGHT NOW to get details and tickets: https://moparty.com. We will see you there!

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!

KF Show Summary: If there is a car movie more cultish than the original 1971 film “Vanishing Point,” we don’t know about it. This is the movie that listeners have requested we review for years and for absolutely no reason it’s just never happened. Until now. With the recent passing of Kowalski himself (actor Barry Newman) we decided the time had come to give it it’s due. The thing is, of our trio none of us was really a hard core fanatic of the movie. We all had seen it at least once, but that was about it. Thankfully Greg Hagemann, our expert from the KF Patreon gang, stepped up to help…..and then just took over so we wouldn’t screw it up. He knew the movie inside and out and was armed with facts for days about the artistic side of the movie as well as the nerdy automotive side. He even owns and drives a “modern” Kowalski Challenger to back up his street cred. 10 Dogs.

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!

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).

Friends, after the debacle in the February Patreon Show our man Corndog put Kibbe on suspension for one single show. Luckily it was with full pay, full benefits, and zero accountability. Kibbe will be back next week! In the meantime, as many of you have requested, pull up a chair around Uncle Corndog to hear the REAL story of the Wheelstander General Lee, built by Richard Sephton at the tail end of the filming of the Dukes of Hazzard TV series. This is the REAL story of the car….and is a little different than what you hear recently on the VinWiki YouTube channel.

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”.

Dukes Review: Somehow, an episode that has next to no General Lee in it…..is so endearing and charming it must be due to Christmas magic! In this episode they choose to re-enact the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol. (FYI – everyone in Hollywood now does this. Bill Murray did it in Scrooged. Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds just did it too in Spirited. It’s on Apple + and is pretty good!). Not good enough? This is the tale of Scrooge Hogg stealing Christmas trees from Hazzard citizens and the Dukes stealing them back to deliver them in Santa suits. Not good enough? In a nod to childlike happiness, the bad guys in the episode also wear Santa suits….meaning there are 6 Santas at one time. When the bad guys in Santa suits get caught, Cletus calls them “Merry Men!” The Boars Nest is decorated, proving that Christmas decorations at dive bars make them extra cheery. Better yet, there are carols, hot chocolate, and this episode ends on a message of what Christmas is all about – unconditional forgiveness…..topped off by some jingle bells flying overhead by (possibly) a certain jolly old Elf.
