#149 Build Updates, News You Need, and Holley’s MOPARTY Info; Dukes of Hazzard S5E7 Review “Vance’s Lady”

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

This episode also presented by Big Red Camaro! Tune in to Amazon Prime to watch Season 2 of the Big Red Series. We will do some giveaways of the Build Book next month using clues from the series!

Dukes Review: “Vance’s Lady” So…this is a Coy and Vance episode, but it’s also an homage to Smokey and the Bandit as well as every Hallmark Christmas movie. Rosco’s car loses its top, fenders, quarters, etc Buford T Justice style. Vance reunites with his lost love, the city gal with the sophisticated lifestyle who wants to get back with the simpleton yet confident and rugged small town guy she lost. Boss eats a pizza (in a car with no roof or windshield), ribs, and possibly a a suitcase. Vance’s chick is running from a crooked politician who was stealing public funds, so feel free to assign your political party if choice to that one. I think that there is a confirmed sighting of the Forever Young General Lee in this one too. Otherwise, the episode is….meh. .

Patreon Peeps, the year 2020 will be an important one for Patreon specifically, and we have decided to retire the $1 and $2 levels completely. If you’re still at those levels you can keep them – but if you’d consider jumping up to the $5 level it would sure help. The $10 level will remain and we now have a brand new $20 level as well! All members who join at that level will receive a sticker swag pack in the mail, you’ll be IMMEDIATELY entered in the monthly prize grab, and you’ll receive a phone call from one (or all) of us to chat up whatever you want for 30 minutes!

Dukes Review: “Big Daddy” This is a story of father and son. Boss Hogg’s father comes to Hazzard. Boss loves his father and thought he was the highest standard of a man there was, believing him to be kind, generous, and upstanding. (It’s actually plausible if you recall Boss’s twin brother “Abraham Lincoln Hogg). Anyway, it turns out that he’s a terrible person. Surprise! Later on, Coy and Vance get beat by a bad guy. There’s a funny scene with food. The old lady from Airplane and Airplane II is in this. Oh, and the right headlight door on the General opens during a jump. That’s kinda interesting. There’s also a scene where there’s a typo on the roof of the General and it says “GENRERAL LEE.” Fin.

Thank you to BIG RED CAMARO for being a part of our show this week! Listeners….go grab a Big Red Build book or enjoy the love on Amazon Prime with the big Red series! https://bigredcamaro.com

This is the 5th Coy and Vance episode. In the wake of the huge previous deep dive episodes on screen used Generals….getting back to reviewing regular episodes is kind of an emotional let down. This one is fine, I suppose. The gist of it is that the Bosses of the neighboring counties to Hazzard are, like Boss Hogg, also corrupt. They are unhappy that a new highway bypass keeps visitors out of their territories – and directly into Boss Hogg’s. You know the drill from here. The Dukes save him, despite their best interest. There’s a side-by-side car jump between the General and a Bad Guy car that is cool. If you like vintage VHS cameras, there’s something for you here as well – hey hey! Otherwise….this one is easy to forget.

Patreon Peeps, next week we will be doing a LIVE Q&A Patreon Show on Zoom with you! Look for details in Patreon about this specifically. It will occur Monday April 27th at 8PM CDT!

Entry for the Patreon Supporter PRIZE GRAB is available to all Patrons at the $20 and $10 level. Any lower level with 6 or more months of support are also fully eligible.

#145 DEEP DIVE: There were TWO General Lee’s in The Awesome 1992 Film Forever Young!

As announced in this episode, Holley is not only the official EFI source for Kibbe and Friends and is the PROUD sponsor of this episode, but they are also giving away a crazy twin supercharged LS engine stuffed with every aftermarket part you can think of! The parts alone are over $20K – and all you need to do to have a shot at it is to enter the contest! Here’s the link. Go get it! https://bit.ly/KAFS-Holley-LS-Sweepstakes.

The DEEP DIVE: After the last episode, you knew it was coming. 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.

Patreon Peeps, for the month of April we’re planning to do a LIVE call for the Q&A show – so be on the lookout!

Entry for the Patreon Supporter PRIZE GRAB is available to all Patrons at the $20 and $10 level. Any lower level with 6 or more months of support are also fully eligible.
