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.

TMCP #396: Nathan Warren, Warren Customs; Job Complete! The Full And Final Restoration Story of Kibbe Lee!

This week I traveled to Warren Customs in Hamilton Alabama to hang out with Nathan Warren and pickup my freshly updated General Lee! I dropped the car off in January for the full “Season 2” Dukes of Hazzard conversion and after months of hard work he was ready to roll. Last week, he was done! This is the whole story of the restoration, soup to nuts.

Even before I purchased  this car, Nathan had offered to be the one to do the work to make my dream come true. Creating this particular car seemed easy….but was really tricky as most of the subtle changes were fairly major.  Other than the fact that my car was already orange and wearing the GL uniform, cosmetically almost everything else had to change. In episode 353 of The Muscle Car Place I did the first full interview with Nathan where we detailed the plans how to make it as TV correct as it could get. Little did I know that things would go way beyond our simple plans.

The General Lee is as much a character in The Dukes Of Hazzard show as any other cast member. Like most actors the role changes and the actor looks different over several years of filming. To be as accurate as it can be, a specific season had to be chosen and I chose to make the car a season two clone with all the oddities that time had to offer. Nathan was more than up to the challenge and even has parts he can make for other General Lee creators out there.

One piece that REALLY pulls off the “Season 2” look is the amazing push bar that is the most accurate recreation I have seen. In order to make it that great it had to go through a couple iterations, and change more, even after it looked correct at first. There is a lot of work in any restoration but Nathan admitted that in some cases he made more work for himself by striving for the most accurate representation possible. Customers in his shop agree that he is a stickler and they trust him to make the job right.

TMCP #387: Warren Customs: Making the General Lee (Dodge Charger) Great Again!

In this episode Nathan Warren came on to talk about the “season two” updates to my General Lee. It has been a year since Nathan came on the show to talk about the formation and goals of his business….and then offered to showcase his abilities by helping me to convert my car to a screen accurate version of how it would have appeared in Season 2 of the Dukes of Hazzard! Well, fast forward a year, and the car is now there and is in his capable hands. This episode is the update of everything related!
