    • Wanted to do a quick update since a lot of people are seeing this thread...over 8000, Wow!  Chapters 74-79 are up and Chapter 80 will be up withing the week. There are only a couple more chapters, so now is the time to start reading because it's long (don't worry, it's not stuffed with a bunch of mindless filler...90% action, 10% getting to the action).  I see this being finished within the month!!!!
    • I'm pretty sure that my Ertl Authentics General Lee has opening headlight covers too.
    • Well, the Jeep was for one a sponsored item at first, so you know... Free cars is still free cars. A few more reasons apparently were: Daisy's 1971 Plymouth is not a 'different enough' car compared to the General Lee. The General in looks may look like a slower vehicle then the 71. A Jeep for Daisy shows she can stand her ground. A Jeep (at least in later episodes) shows of Cathy's legs. You know... For TV ratings and such.
    • Yes, Jeep sponsored the the car or something similar. But when that stopped, they taped over or removed the logos like all others. From what I've heard, product placement rules in the 80s was a lot more strict then they are now unless you focus specifically on something. Even the boxing gloves during 'And in This Corner, Luke Duke' have tape over the logo. For example when Mythbusters had an episode which heavily relied on cola, and cans were prominently shown, they'd have them fully covered over with paper and new text written on them with a sharpie. But when a cast member was randomly just drinking one in the background or something like that, it's all fine. Waylon did say that indeed now you mention it. I only remembered when the Junkyard owner said 68' Coupe, but Waylon says earlier in the episode 'Right up to that wreck of an ol' black Charger'. I guess thy got away with it since they didn't mention a make or anything.
    • Watched it happen live at 2 am. That was some wreck. There's only few times during racing nowadays luckily where you think it could have terrible end results. This was one of them... Glad to have read later Ryan's status was not life threatening. Usually I don't agree with people being booed at, but this time was fair. I wont comment on him doing donuts.
