This may be my favorite episode of Finnegan’s Garage. Not only is it full of the fun and power that we all know and love, but the dose of humor that runs through this whole thing is exactly what we all need right now and especially Mike’s family. It made me smile, made me laugh, and inspired me. I mean who isn’t going to be inspired by, and laugh at, anyone who decides that the best way to fix a floppy fiberglass hood is to install an 8-71 Blower on your big block? It makes sense in a way that only Finnegan can sell, and I love him for it. LOL And if that was the only thing that happened in this episode, it would have been great. After all, laughing through the first startup was greatness, but wait until you see all the shenanigans that go on with Finnegan’s mom in the car!
Yeah, if you are fan of burnouts, blowers, hot rods hauling Christmas trees, and loud muscle cars in general, this is the episode for you. And if you don’t like this episode….well….we can’t be friends. So grab a drink and get ready to laugh because this is one of the good ones. And go get a tree in your hot rod with your mom!
