This morning, down the street from where I live, at the local Christian-owned gas station (I don’t buy gas at Muslim-owned gas stations; don’t want to fund the jihad), I spotted one of only three genuine General Lee Dodge Chargers in existence (the rest are fakes, er . . . “replicas”). As you probably know, the cars are from “The Dukes of Hazzard” TV show. (The one owned by Kid Rock is a fake and, while he bought it from “Dukes of Hazzard” star John Schneider, it was never used in the show).
I didn’t have my camera, so you’ll have to take my word for it. It was very cool, and looked exactly like the picture above (except it’s waaay cooler in person–the bright orange paint is, believe it or not, stunning). The dashboard is signed by “Hazzard” stars John Schneider and “Daisy Duke,” Catherine Bach. The owner, Mark, has the Michigan license plate “NOKLONE” to indicate that his is real (unlike Kid Rock’s). He lives right near me. Mark said the other two General Lee owners are the owner of L.A. Gear and a guy who lives in Minnesota.
This weekend, in the Detroit area, we are having something called “The Dream Cruise” down a major road, Woodward Avenue, that spans Detroit and many of Detroit’s major suburbs. People drive their exotic and classic cars up and down the street all week and definitely all weekend. I love cool cars, but try to avoid the event because the traffic is soooo bad. But there are classic cars driving around here everywhere this week, including Mark’s General Lee.
