Post Gotta love the General Lee!

Disclaimer: Yeah, I've been drinking.

After spending the afternoon packing for my road trip to Southern, UT I head into the kitchen to make some dinner. I turn on the TV and there is some super cheesy Dukes of Hazard Reunion show. So, I let it run just for kicks.

I may be dating myself here, but I remember the first runs of the the Dukes. I think they may have had a part of my developing a love for dirt driving.

In '84, my grandpa had a stroke and we went back to Arkansas to be with him. I was 14 at the time, and my aunt had rented this Cadillac. She gave my 16 year old cousin the keys and he took me out driving. That was the day I learned to drive. We ran back and forth on this 5 mile stretch of dirt road at 60 all day long. Once you get that tail outmpower slide under your skin, I don't think it ever goes away.

I'm glad I bought my Subbie. You can flame away for me acting stupid, but my answer will always be," SHUT UP & DRIVE!!"

Yah right like any 5-60yr old male ever watched that show for anything other then to see the cousin Daisy. Then again maybe that Basid Hound Flash was the predecessor to the Trunk Monkey?

ROFL Flash, the original trunk monkey? Wow... what a concept...

And I don't know about you guys, but I was so young when I started watching that, that I actually WAS watching it just for the car.

I saw the reunion as well... pretty good, and they edited out most of the errors in jumping a lot better then they had before (oops, car is upside-down and then manages to land right? wow!)

Daisy was lookin a bit... aged, though. Oh well, that is what reruns are for.

That was my favorite show at the time, being like 8 years old.

Even painted "General Lee" on my red Pre-BMX at the time (BMX's weren't around yet). Did quite a bit of jumping on that bike too.

Musta been becuase I "riced" up my bike that made me jump higher, go faster and land smoother.

Ya know, I think Matt might be onto something here. I used to absolutely love watching that show as a kid. Seeing the old '01 slide around on those dirt roads was almost mesmerizing. I couldn't get enough of it.

I definitely watched it for the car chase scenes. I wasn't old enough to appreciate Daisy at that time in my life.

Ya, the Reunion shows maybe really cheesy but they are kinda fun to watch. I guess you kinda watch them without knowing what you are doing.

Time was definitely not kind to Daisy. Had her better days!

I was young when I first started watching it as well. Like 2nd grade. Remember that my teacher told mom that I watched to much of the show. Art time always drawing the general lee jumping the police. To young for Daisy. I have caught both Reunion shows and every once in a while catch a rerun.

Cool

And how did they squeal the tires on dirt roads??

And can you get cooler than having Waylon Jennings sing the theme song AND narrate?

Where did they find the dynamite that they would tie onto the arrows they shot sometimes? Another thing is that they never practiced with the bow and arrows yet when it came time to use them they never missed. I used to have a Dukes of Hazards lunch box. That is until I discovered firecrackers and M80's. Ahh the good old days.

Cool

They've just released a 'Dukes of Hazard' gane for the PC over here. Don't know what it's like though.

Apparently, if you finish the game with a high enough score, you get to remove Daisy's denim hot pants!!!! (yeah, right!)
