Holley is giving away Freiburger’s very own ’66 Buick convertible – the car that started Roadkill! If that’s not enough….did you know that Holley is hiring? Maybe 2021 could be the year you get that dream job! Click here: http://bit.ly/TMCPHolleyRoadkill, and here: http://bit.ly/TMCPHolleyJobs

Projects: In this episode…we debunk the real facts behind movie car license plates you can buy today. Also, Corndog’s black ’66 Charger needs a whole new serpentine pulley system….and he’s got it. The red ’69 is about to get a Holley 600 to replace the Rochester carb someone put on it!

Dukes Review: This is the Season 5 finale episode that features “Bull” from the TV sitcom “Night Court.” It also features a section on forced marriage. Also ultralight aircraft. Meh. Its OK. The highlight might be one jump scene followed by a weird split second when you see a bunch or random people off camera. There appears to be some in car audio taken of the GL as well, which is awesome. 5 Corndogs.

TMCP #453: Happy New Year 2021! 10 Years of TMCP Full Time; Ask Rick, The REAL Start of NPD

2021 is now here! This week in particular marks my 10 year anniversary if leaving the corporate world behind to chase some crazy new dreams. While I can’t say it went exactly to plan, I CAN say that I wouldn’t change any second of it. The friends, the adventures, and the experiences have been overwhelming. Thank YOU! I tried my best to share the good, bad, and ugly of that very first week in business (i.e. it was a massive failure). 10 years later, I’m a little older, balder, and wiser.  My hope is that what I shared in this episode will be a big help to those of you in the automotive business of your choosing, no matter what that is.

Pop Culture: Chuck Yeager has died. Listen in for a tribute to a pilot from another era that loved duty above all else. An A-1, all American, total bad ass!

Dukes Review: This episode is AWESOME! It has everything: Duke genealogy, aerial stunts, maps of Hazzard, a strange bad guy (lady) that is rich, successful, driven, and so cool she has a huge gap in her front teeth. The plot revolves are strip mining Hazzard for coal deposits and a helicopter fighting the General Lee! It’s great, so great in fact that when they wrote the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard movie they just took the plot from this episode and added a race to it. Really. It’s awesome. 10 Corndogs.

K&F Show #171: 2020 Even Killed Darth Vader; Dukes of Hazzard S5E20 Review “Big Brothers, Duke”

Pop Culture: Darth Vader has died! Well, David Prowse did…and he was the 6’7″ bodybuilder who was the man behind the suit.

Dukes Rview: Finally, proof that Bo and Luke are so much better. At everything. This is the episode where Bo and Luke decide to become “Big Brothers” to a troubled youth in need. Then the “youth” (who was played by an actor four years older than John Scnheider) steals the General Lee, finds some stolen money, and Boss Hogg keeps him from getting murdered (really). Bo hoots at women, Luke is snarky, the stunts are fantastic, Al Wyatt wags the tail of the General, Coy and Vance are no more, and all is right with the world. 8 Corndogs.

Fun: Alex Trebek passed away last weekend and Sean Connery passed the week before. So….we did what needed to be done most, an SNL Celebrity Jeopardy throw-down!

Dukes Review: The last Coy and Vance episode is finally here. Oh, how I have waited for this day! Now, this isn’t a bad episode. In fact this episode has a number of themes that really set the stage for what the Dukes is all about. Self reliance, chivalry, open prayer, putting others needs ahead of your own, and jumping cars. And while I didn’t love Coy and Vance, I did like Byron Cherry and Chris Mayer. They were nice guys in an impossible situation. A situation that is about to end! (Vance never should have said the General was theirs. I never forgave him for that one.)

K&F Show #165: How Paint Scanning a General Lee REALLY Works; Dukes of Hazzard S5E15 Review “Ding, Dong, The Boss is Dead”

Holley is the official EFI source for Kibbe and Friends and is the PROUD sponsor of this episode! Congrats to Arrow West @eldest_arrow on Instagram for his recent LS swap into a ’83 Cutlass! His father Philip West @flannel_philip posted the details on Instagram, and we’re honored that they selected a Holley Terminator X system after hearing it described in our show. Way to go boys!

Dukes Review – S5E15: This episode is a clinic in what goes around, comes around. The entire show is a cartoonish version of basically the same episode from Season 2, but this time with flying coffins.  Boss still has to leap moving vehicles to convince people he’s dead. Not one, but two actors from previous episodes come back to play different characters, and the outfit the bad guy (girl) is wearing….is both sensational as well as now back in fashion (high waisted shorts with a belt.) Surprised her outfit actually stayed on, actually. Anyway, this is a repeat of a season 2 episode plot, a season 2 bad guy car, with a repeat of a season 3 set of characters, with a season 4 bad guy car. And the GL jumps a barn. It may be the best Coy and Vance episode ever.

K&F Show #164: MOPARTY Recap; Dukes of Hazzard S5E14 Review “Return of the Mean Green Machine”

Holley is the official EFI source for Kibbe and Friends and is the PROUD sponsor of this episode! Listen in for a full recap of the event including ALL of the details on Jamie Smith’s 2-wheels stunt and ramp-to-ramp jump. We’ll also have a number of interviews to bring you from Dylan McCool, Tim Wellborn, and more over on The MuscleCar Place. Here’s what you ned to know most: Gen III Hemi Swaps are THE cool thing to do! Thank you Holley!

The Mean Green Machine from Season 5 Episode 1 returns, which is a rare instance of a story arc on the Dukes. This episode….has legit – nay – GREAT – stunts in the form of two totally awesome stunts over moving vehicles. There is a reference of radio stations – which Bernie should like. There is a comically sized magnet involved that looks like something Wile E. Coyote would use. At long last, Boss Hogg finally uses a bazooka. The first time Vance Duke sees the Mean Green Machine he shoots dynamite at it. And the acting in this…..is not terrible. In fact, it’s tolerable. Cartoonishly charming, even. Chris Mayer and Byron Cherry are kind of getting into the swing of things. But, in just three episodes, they’ll be homeless and will never be mentioned again.

TMCP #432: Frank Mecum; Growing Up Inside the Worlds Largest Classic Car Auction – Ask Rick, How Ford VIN Verification Began

This week I spoke to Frank Mecum of Mecum Auctions. In most of my interviews the story starts “at a young age with a love of cars”. This story does have that theme, but begins with two generations of Mecums (including Dana Mecum and his father) working in and owning new car dealerships for years. Early on they came across a large collection of collectible cars that allowed the set up the first Mecum auction ever. The event took place at the Rockford airport in Illinois and after the cars were sold a tornado came through and destroyed nearly everything – including the cars. Frank said that his grandfather owed so many people money after that auction that he had to do it again the next year. The start was humble, but it led to the Mecum auction enterprise we know today.

TMCP #431: Kevin Marti and the Marti Report – The Holy Grail for 1967 and Newer Ford Model Data; Pro-Touring Update with Larry Callahan

This week I spoke to Kevin Marti of Marti Auto Works, home of the world famous “Marti Report”. For the Ford faithful, this famous report allows one to know the actual manufacturer data for any Ford built 1967 or newer, including options, colors, build dates, rarity, and otherwise! It’s the actual proof to know if your rare Ford or Mercury is the Real McCoy. But….as all good stories go, Kevin’s intent wasn’t to create a report company at all. It was born out of a search to solve a problem he had!

Holley is the official EFI source for Kibbe and Friends and is the PROUD sponsor of this episode! Their Terminator Stealth system on my General Lee is killing it. There’s a BRAND NEW MOPAR EVENT listed on their website that you need to save the date for as well: Sept 18-20 in Bowling Green, KY. Hint – there’s a General Lee jump! https://www.moparty.com

The Pro-Touring Update – Presented by Ron Francis Wiring – STARRING LARRY CALLAHAN – is back! 2020 Pro-touring Events: With the COVID-19 virus shutting down all large gatherings, the question remains of what events will still be allowed to operate. Even a small GoodGuys event would draw large enough crowds to violate even the most generous relaxing of the rules. Stay tuned and we will provide updates on these events as they come available. As of the release of this episode, GoodGuys events all will restart after July 1, 2020. Visit Pro-Touring.com for details and updates!
