Do the Dukes of Hazzard Eat on the Sunset Strip?
Our Private Tour Gets a Gander at the General Lee
Considering there were more than 250 1969 Dodge Chargers converted and prepared for use in the wildly popular television series The Dukes of Hazzard you would think we would run into this vehicle around Los Angeles and Hollywood more often. The General Lee, as it is named, did recently appear in a wild Autotrader.com television advertisement with Dukes’ stars Tom Wopat and John Schneider. The guys looked great and so did the the car as it did the other day when our private Los Angeles tour cruised by Le Petit Four on the Sunset Strip and saw it parked in a spot of honor on the street. We usually see Ferraris and Maseratis, the occasional Rolls Royce or Maybach, parked here so our eyes were instantly caught by the orange muscle car numbered 01. But considering the rollovers and jumps, doughnuts and rough turns made during production of the television show, perhaps it is lucky for us that any of these grand autos are still around.
