TMCP #464: Warren Customs – The Full Build Recipe to Create an Accurate Replica of Colt Seavers “The Fall Guy” Truck!

If you’ve been following this show for a while you know that 1970’s and 80’s TV cars (and trucks) have had a huge influence on the cars we all love today. From the General Lee, to KITT, to the A-Team, all of those shows featured a hero vehicle that was just as much a character as any one of the individual actors. Today’s episode is a full take on yet another beloved classic…and features a full rundown of everything you’ll need to know to build your very own “Fall Guy” Square-Body GMC truck! Even better, our guest Nathan Warren has more passion for this topic than anyone I know. Buckle up for takeoff!

TMCP #463: Garrett Daniels Revisited – How To Survive, Adapt, and Thrive Your Off-Road Fab Shop Dream Business!

This week, we get a chance to catch up with a previous guest and friend of the show Garrett Daniels. When I interviewed Garrett three years ago in episode 351, he was just starting out on his own trying to make a business out of his passion of fabrication. Specifically, he wanted to specialize in roll cages and off road suspension for the trucks he loved most. Since then many things went well, some things became “difficult learning lessons”, but it all helped him to adapt and thrive to where he is today!

TMCP #462: Ask Rick – 60’s and 70’s Personal Luxury Cars, eBay Values, and the Rise and Fall of ASC – American Sunroof Corp

It’s the first show of April, and once again time for our monthly Ask Rick segment with Rick Schmidt! This time I wanted to know more about the unusual and rare vehicles in his collection. On our family trip to Florida we had a chance to stop in at NPD and were shown around the incredible collection that Rick and his father have amassed over the years. The “personal luxury car” segment of giant Buicks, Olds, Lincolns, and Fords is second to none….but the 1987 Firebird that really caught my eye was produced by a huge company in the 1980’s that is nothing but a memory today!

Dukes Review: It’s the oldest story ever told. A random long lost relative shows up at the door, wants to show you the birthmark on his private area as proof, demands you help him escape from murderers, and then leaves at the end with a clear conscience. I’ve heard it a thousand times. And on this show, just like Jeb Stuart Duke, Coy Duke, and Vance Duke, Jud Duke will never be mentioned again. The General Lee is barely in this episode at all. Boss Hogg and Rosco end up fighting on the side of the Dukes again at the end. John Schneider rides a car roof though and does some seriously good underwater stunts….and for that we’ll upgrade it to 7 Corndogs.

TMCP #460: Damon Sampson – Why MAST Motorsports is the LS and LT Powerhouse!

FEATURE INTERVIEWS: Damon Sampson: Why MAST Motorsports is the LS and LT Powerhouse! In the past 15 years many engine companies have come and gone, but Horace Mast’s “MAST Motorsports” became the go-to place for many top builders and racers to source their extra hot LS engines (and today, LT engines).

K&F Show #181: Build Rundown – Corndog’s ’66 Charger Lives! Dukes of Hazzard S6E03 Review “Too Many Roscos”

Click to join our super secret KF Show Only listener email list..just in case we get blocked from every social and podcast platform! https://forms.aweber.com/form/48/1311263948.htm

Presented with Holley! This is it! Justin Cornette’s black ’66 “Moonrunner” Charger is back on the road, complete with a Holley Sniper Stealth 4150 EFI system and Hyperspark (timing control) ignition. Listen in for the full details on how this high-lift-cam small block MOPAR reacted to it. Starting is now instant and Learn Mode is in full effect (Justin used the “Race” mode calibration on the EFI handheld). This car used to hate idling in traffic.  No longer! There’s also a full update on the Silversport A41 (Stage II) Automatic with bluetooth shift control as well. Justin’s car has a 3.73 rear gear and the small block used to scream at highway speeds. Now….all better! https://bit.ly/KAFSHolley

Dukes Review: If there was ever a better era than the early 80’s for the claim that plastic surgery can actually may you look like someone else, I wouldn’t believe it. And nothing tugs more on the heart strings than thinking a loved one has been killed by jumping a car into a lake, even though they’ve done that a billion times with no issue. In this one – when Rosco is presumed dead – everyone from Bo to Boss is sad, crying, and solemn. But he’s not dead of course, there are now just two people that look like him. Daisy still wears a low neckline dress to his wake that’ll also have you seeing double. John Scneider gets some seriously great acting and driving in, Tom Wopat climbs out the right side of a flying car in a left hand slide, the bad guys get caught, and did I mention we get a look at the General Lee trunk popper in this episode? That may be better than Daisy’s dress. 10 stars.

Project Update: Corndog’s ’66 Charger runs….and the Holley Sniper seems to have even sorted out his crazy high-lift cam! After setting the Idle Air Control following warmup it now cranks over on the first start, cold or hot. Idle timing is 28 degrees, All in at 34 degrees.

MOVIE REVIEW: Stroker Ace! If you loved Smokey and the Bandit, Cannonball Run, Police Academy, WKRP, Gomer Pyle: USMC, The Hardy Boys, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, Deliverance, and Days of Thunder….this is like all of them combined, minus ….basically everything from Deliverance except Ned Beaty, and all of the really good stuff from Days of Thunder like Tom Cruise and amazing cinematography with real in car race footage at speed. This movie would be culture cancelled today. Sexual harassment is considered innocent fun, women are ogled, there’s no drug use, and the confederate flags are a plenty. But when Hal Needham called, Burt Reynolds answered…and made a box office flop that has kept us all clucking and chuckling to this day. Why? Because he was driving the FASTEST CHICKEN IN THE SOUTH.

Industry News: Fun’s Over? GM has announced they’re going to all electric vehicles by 2035, and carbon neutral by 2040. That means that any R&D one the internal combustion engine there…..is ending. Better get your ZL1’s, Hellcat’s, and killer Mustangs while you can! (Buy two – one to drive, and one as investment!)

Dukes Review: A new season of Dukes is upon us…but the final formula of the Dukes is now in place that will take us to the end. The dramatic music specifically is….a lot. The General looks great, cars are freshened up, the clothes are a little less spray painted on, and for now the stunts DON’T involve miniatures….but knowing it’s coming may make you wretch in advance. This episode though, pretty good, and they film at Six Flags I think. To conclude… Lulu is kidnapped for ransom and then rescued. The end.
