Presented with Holley and MSD! Did you know that MSD – the most trusted name in hot rod ignition known to man – is part of Holley? Well if not…now you do! That’s right, that magical red “spark box” that was in every race car and high school hot rod you can think of has the same great quality and support of any Holley product you can think of.

Dukes Review: This is the episode where the General Lee goes rabid! The General gets turned into a remote controlled car, set to detail a train full of money with a load of dynamite in the trunk. Boss Hogg was behind the scheme of course, but the Dukes came back and nearly fought to the death to protect the most important their lives: their honor? No. Their fortune? No? Their reputation? NO! It was for their car! We have all learned this life lesson, and like them we all know that cars have a soul, need to be protected, and need to be fought for. Quite honestly, if it weren’t for the miniature stunt – which thankfully were minimal – this episode would be an 11 out of 10. Plus, the bad guy just happened to be Kung Fun Joe from to classic movie spook “I’m gonna get you Sucka!”

TMCP #503: Ask Rick – All Electric C8 Corvette’s vs Investing In Blue Chip Classic Muscle Cars!

Happy May! Rick Schmidt is back again for an all new Ask Rick segment, this time devoted to the future of new American performance cars …. specifically the Corvette and the Mustang.  Both of those iconic cars have a new “electric” version available along with an amazing gasoline variant….at least for now. American buying habits started changing long before the high gas prices and inflation surges we are experiencing now. As Rick pointed out, in the case of the Mustang (the “Mach-E” SUV, specifically) it’s only crime is bringing many new first-time customers to Ford! At the same time, it would appear that the gasoline powered Camaro’s, Challengers, and Chargers are all on borrowed time. What does the future hold?

K&F Show #223: Corndog Give The Thumper Cam The Boot; Dukes of Hazzard S7E09 Review S7 EP9 “Cale Yarborough Comes to Hazzard”

Dukes Review: Cale Yarborough returns for some reason and he’s a better actor than many other guest stars! Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins) from Saved by the Bell gets to be a star, finally! This is his third appearance on the Dukes, but first as a bad guy. More notably, and most importantly though, Al White (think “Jive Talk” from Airplane!) returns to Hazzard to play the role of another bad guy. Al White can do no wrong!  Unfortunately, even though Cal Yarborough is here….this rest of this episode only does wrong. Lotsa wrong. Lotsa horrible horrible wrong. This episode features not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 miniature General Lee stunts….and….AND….a two wheel ski stunt. I can rationalize the cost savings of not jumping real cars dammit, but putting a car up on two wheels? That’s like – $30 in tires at this point and $50 for Buzz Bundy to work his magic for 5 minutes. But, I digress.

Anyway, here’s the plot. An orphan is sick, he’s huge Cale Yarborough fan and though we’ve never ever seen him before (and we’ll never see him again) he’s super close to the Dukes and they get Cale to come and cheer him up.

These damn miniatures. Not even the awesomeness of Cale Yarborough, Mr Belding, and Al White can overcome that.

K&F Show #222: Mr Mom and Air Fryers; Dukes of Hazzard S7E08 Review “Go West, Young Dukes”

Dukes Review: We’ve been telling you for years that The Dukes of Hazzard was a modern day Western, just with cars instead of horses. Well – this time – it’s literal. This is the episode of the Dukes in the old west (and by that we mean the South, but that’s harder to explain). If you’re a fan of the Dukes you’ll like this episode. It’s fun. If you’re in it for the car, skip it.

I really think this was yet another Season 7 metaverse episode – like the Waylon visit – where they know it’s tv, we know it’s tv, they know it’s a western, we know it’s a western, and with a wink and a nod they just did the obvious next metaverse move. Frankly, the only thing they didn’t do in this episode was paint a horse orange and put numbers on it.

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.

TMCP #501: SEMA’s Colby Martin – What is the Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act All About?

This week I spoke to Colby Martin of the SEMA Action Network to get all of the nitty gritty details on the Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act. The news of the act finally being able to move forward after 7 long years of it becoming law has been huge! Specifically, it now means that a licensed replica vehicle manufacturer can build up to 325 replica “classic” cars per year! Unlike current replica and “kit” cars, the customer can purchase it fully completed (running/driving) and register it in their own state accordingly. It’ll look and feel just like the original, but there is one catch; it has to be emissions compliant with “modern standards!” Clear as mud, right? Colby was here to sort out the minutia of it all. 

K&F Show #220: General Lee Drift Brake Placement; Movie Review – Happy Gilmore

Presented with Holley! Be sure to get signed up for LSFest West asap if you live west of the Mississippi. Visit LSFest.com for details, and visit Holley.com to buy a few toys for yourself and make SURE you tell them we sent you!

Movie Review: In honor of the upcoming Masters Tournament we bring you our review of the best automotive golf move starring Adam Sandler known to man; Happy Gilmore. Think of it like Billy Madison, but it’s about golf, has Apollo Creed in it, and stars a ’74 Duster with a sweet aftermarket sunroof!

Happy Gilmore is a man who wished he was a hockey player and who was raised by his grandmother after his mother ran out of him and his dad was killed by an errant hockey puck. While his hockey dream would never become a reality, the slapshot he mastered would help him to become a long drive golf hero of the common man. It would also somehow get him beat up by Bob Barker, host of “The Price is Right!”

Aside from the slapstick humor, this also gave us the chance to do a deep dive on A-Body MOPARS and investigate the magic “1973 and newer” front disc brake swap phenomenon that changed MOPAR humanity as we know it. All credit goes to Happy!

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.

TMCP #499: Jon Chase – Making a Change Again And Using It To Help Kids Mental Health

Our guest this week is once again the man who is the master of changing his life to do amazing things, Jon Chase! Jon is a well known name in the auto-verse and I must admit that I was a little shocked when he announced he was leaving HOONIGAN to resume his own art brand, DSTROYR. The goal though was specifically around raising awareness for children’s mental health. I asked him on the show to shed some light, and he agreed!
