TMCP #579: ASK RICK – Summertime Parade Car Businesses; Evaluating a 4-Year College Degree in an Automotive Restoration; The Biggest International Muscle Car Parts Customers; OEM Retirements and a Changing of the Guard!

It is June and time for another riveting Ask Rick segment where I ask him the tough questions! The big event for the month is Flag Day! It is also the start of summer and time for vacations and traveling around to see this great country of ours or maybe another country. This month we dug into the realities of shipping to international customers (by the container load), the retirements of BIG names at Dodge and Chevy, and the value of a 4-year college degree in automotive education. The we followed it up by guessing at the best vehicles to buy for the summer – to use as parade vehicles – that you could sell at the end and make a great ROI!

It is the fifteenth year for The Muscle Car Place Podcast and it has come a long ways since it’s lowly beginnings and I thank you, the listener of coming along on the journey. I have been blessed with some amazing opportunities and the connections to meet incredible people and to share it all with you The Muscle Car Place audience.

Forever Young

K&F Movie Summary from Episode 145: This is a full review of the 1992 Mel Gibson movie, Forever Young. This is the one where Mel is a test pilot in 1939, gets cryogenically frozen for a year to avoid the pain watching his girlfriend die in a hospital slowly, and then waked up over 50 years later to find out he was abandoned by everyone he knew and loved. Only he wasn’t…..and if you love history, romance, flying, and Chargers you’ll absolutely love this movie. The audio alone is with your time. Yes….we believe the last “Sound Stage” General Lee is the car in this movie, and yes, that’s the primary reason we reviewed it. However, this movie gets a Perfect 10 from ALL OF US for just being a great, fun, enjoyable story to watch and enjoy!

OK….with that said, the deep dive on the Chargers in this film is somewhat exhaustive and definitely sickening. We can absolutely say FOR SURE that there were two Generals used in the movie, as documented in the episode. Remember, Warner Brothers kept the “Sound-Stage” car as well as one Hero car.  The Sound Stage car was a ’68 Charger faked to look like a ’69 (grille and taillight changes), and the Hero car was a ’69. We feel pretty certain that the ’68 was used for the bulk of the movie….except for two interior scenes.

Remember these words: DOME LIGHT.

TMCP #578: Fifteen Years Of The Muscle Car Place With Jeff Allison – How To Build Cars And Gain A Family

This week marks the fifteenth anniversary of The Musclecar Place podcast and all of the adventures that have ensued since then. Fifteen years ago I had a dream to start a radio show where I could talk about fast classic cars and meet people that build, race or buy and sell those vehicles. The one “guest” that has been on the show more than any of them, and has had a bigger impact than all of them, is Jeff Allison. Jeff is the one that stepped up and took a huge chance and changed both of our lives forever. In this interview we take a trip down memory lane and recollect how we met and built a race car that went to SEMA and made a family out of a podcast.

K&F Show #296: Corndog’s Favorite Car Movies – Dirty Mary Crazy Larry and America Graffiti

K&F Update:

As some of you may now be aware, CD’d family suffered a tragedy earlier this week. We’ll leave it to him to share any details further unless he requests differently. He’s unavailable for the show at the moment and we all completely understand. We recorded this a few days ago in his honor and chose to include re-runs movie reviews of two of this favorites; Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry (Episode 99) and American Graffiti (Episode 261). Listen in and enjoy. I’m sure that he and his family would sure appreciate your prayers!

K&F Movie Summary – SPOILERS AHEAD:

We saw it! Ryan Gosling plays the Fall Guy in the big screen movie. Any of our fears about this ruining a beloved TV tale about stunts and jump trucks were wrong! The movie is great and while it might be a one and done it could certainly feature sequels too! Gosling plays the Colt Seavers, a Hollywood stunt man that ends up having to solve a mystery, while jumping trucks and doing stunts. Sound familiar?

Colt ends up being nearly killed during the opening movie-within-a-movie stunt (that Gosling really did) due to sabotage by the jealous star that he’s doubling. It breaks his confidence and takes him away from the career (and woman) that he loves. But, when Jody the camera girl becomes Jody the director of the biggest baddest stunt movie ever to be made….he comes out of retirement to get it done. And save the relationship. And solve the mystery of the leading man that was dead…..or was he? In it are thrown in intentional meta references, sound effects and songs that will make your hears sing, aliens that make you laugh, all leading to the good guy winning in the end with the help of the girl….and a brown and gold GMC truck.

Get to the theater NOW to see it on the real big screen. You’ll probably need to go twice.

K&F Show Summary: This time we’re all in for something different. In light of the upcoming “The Fall Guy” movie releasing on May 3, 2024 we decided to do a deep dive on the original TV series and  a preview of the new movie. Even better, we were joined by our own Nathan Warren of Warren Customs as the guest co-host. We don’t know anyone that loves Fall Guy trucks (and the TV series) more than Nathan. He even once stated that “it’s like the Dukes of Hazzard, only better.”

The Movie:

Our spies in Australia have already seen the movie and sure us that its good, and Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt’s promotions have been fantastic to watch!

An original (replica) style Fall Guy truck appears in the movie, but the “new” GMC Sierra 1500 appears as the modern day equivalent. It looks to be an entertaining movie, and FINALLY one that will highlight the stunt performers that have always been hidden in the shadows in any Hollywood production.

Stuntman Logan Holladay performed an 8.5 barrel-roll stunt for the movie that set a world record in doing it!

Even better, Ryan Gosling and SNL’s Mikey Day promoted the movie by dressing up as Beavis and Butthead and standing in front of the 2024 Fall Guy Truck.

Classic Fall Guy Episode Review: 

Season 3 – Episode 3 “Trauma”
Written by Lou Shaw, and Michael Halperin
Directed by Ted Lange
Created by Glen A Larson
Airdate: 9/28/1983

Fall Guy Show Summary:

Colt Seavers (Lee Majors) hunts down a bad guy who has stolen a town’s treasurers and hides the bad guy from the screaming townsfolk in the secret stash compartment of the truck. Unbeknownst to Colt (but knownst to us) the bad guy hides the key to the town’s treasurers in the trucks’ afore mentioned secret compartment.  That way when he got away later….he could just shoot the driver of the truck (Colt) and get his key back. Easy Peasy. Unfortunately, Colt’s nephew Howie (Douglas Barr) was driving the truck on two wheels with the shows’ blonde Daisy Duke equivalent (Jody, played by Heather Thomas). She survived but the nephew was nearly killed, leaving Colt and Heather Thomas right the wrongs.  Hijinks ensue, the catch the bad guy, we see one of the train derailed Knight Rider cars painted white, two more stunt trucks, and lots a jumps. Pretty tidy episode. 9 Nathan Warren Sasquatches.

========================================

K&F Show Summary: For your listening pleasure (and for absolutely no other reason) in liuue of a move of TV vehicle review we present to you something a little different. This is our full breakdown of every classic Dominic Toretto driven ’68-’70 Charger from the Fast and Furious movie franchise, from the beginning in 2001 to current day (April 2024 as of this recording).

As you know, the series that started in 2001 with a bunch of VCR thief stealing family members has become a 20+ year action franchise. Dominic Toretto (as portrayed by Vin Diesel) has been the lead character nearly everyone one of them, and Dom has a thing for MOPARS. Beyond that though, he has a SERIOUS thing for ’68-’70 Chargers (with the ’70 being the primary).

We don’t claim to be as solid with the F&F franchise as we are the Dukes of Hazzard, but we did our best. At worst we spend an absolutely ridiculous amount of time discussing ridiculous franchise doing ridiculous things with flying Dodge Charger. Basically, it was perfect for us.

Enjoy!
