This is Part 2 of Carnival of Thrills and it picks up exactly where the last one left off; with Bo punching Luke, taking the General Lee, splitting up the family, and ripping apart the fabric of all that we know to be true and right in the world. Why? Because of the mis-guided love of a she-devil named Diane, that’s why. Luke, Jesse, and Daisy won’t quit though and prove to Bo that his fool hearted desire to jump 32 cars to impress a wack-o temptress would actually result in his murder and the chick leaving him anyway. So, in the grand scheme of things it’s a total lose-lose. Then Bo and Luke reconcile and and do the jump together anyway. Because #integrity. Hijinks ensue.
Big News! From now until May 5, 2017 we are running a giveaway contest for a TRAXXAS Slash! Entry is free and easy. Visit http://www.kfshowgiveaway.com for details.
The Dukes pick up a hitch-hiking and (#shocker#) attractive girl who is on the run from her super wealthy but evil rich-guy father. Why? Because he is forbidding her to marry a lowly farmer, because farmers are poor, and poor people are stupid. As you may have guessed, the only way to morally right this wrong is to get the girl dressed up in Daisy’s less-than-covering wardrobe, then do car chases all around Hazzard until something blows up. In the end, Daisy’s Road Runner bites the bullet and Alan Alda’s dad sees the light about humanity and gives Daisy a Jeep. Hijinks ensue.
A team of super-attractive car strippers set up shop in Hazzard to steal parts off of cars and then sell them back to the unknowing owners. They drive old Army Jeeps to cover their tracks, which are cutely color coordinated. They also (for some reason) help each other to take cold showers in the woods. Boss Hogg ends up being the ring leader of the operation and finds a magical way to blame it on the Dukes, but has a change of heart when the ladies rip him off. The only recourse is to convert the General Lee into an off-roader to chase the hotty-lady-Jeep-driving-car-part-bandits. Rosco gets replaced by Boss’s nephew Hughie Hogg who arrives in a white VW Bug convertible with steer horns on the front. The ring leader of the Lady Bandits has the hots for Bo. Hijinks ensue.
Hazzard County is plagued by a rash of semi-truck hijackings. To do their civic duty the Dukes modify Cletus’ patrol car with a shot of nitrous oxide in order to give him a speed advantage on the crooks. At some point Boss Hogg gets involved to profit from the thefts, only to be (shockingly) double crossed by the crooks. Even zanier is that he believes that Cletus – working with the Dukes – were the ones to steal from him. Cletus is called stupid by everyone (even Waylon Jennings). Daisy poses on top of – and underneath – her car for passing by truck drivers. The General Lee jumps. Hijinks ensue.
This weeks show marks the 300th show in the history of The Muscle Car Place! The show has come a long way since I started creating them on my own in my basement back in May of 2009. I had no idea that the thing I was going as a promotional tool for my website would actually become the biggest business connector I’d ever have, and introduce me to some of the most incredible people I could ever hope to meet! To mark to occasion I have assembled some clips of previous episodes, complete with a full blown introduction of them by the one and only Santa Claus. Seriously – he came on early this year just for this! (Don’t worry – he’ll still be back in just a few weeks for our annual Christmas show.)
The Dukes are visited by an old friend names Swamp Molly. Molly and Jesse were former moonshine runners together. Molly needs Jesse’s help to make a “final run” that will allow her the finances to help a relative attend divinity school (or something like that). Jesse – known for his integrity – again breaks his vow to never run moonshine again and makes Bo and Luke do it. Rosco busts them in the process where it found they were unknowingly running guns and ammo, not moonshine. An ice cream truck is jumped into a lake. Hijinks ensue.
