  1. I actually made a huge list of "Waylonisms" that takes up several pages, too long for here. But two from Rosco: "I caught them fighting like the third monkey on the gangplank of Noah's Ark!" (S4E1 "Mrs Daisy Hogg") Or: Cooter: "Well, what brings you out so early, Boss?" Rosco: "I'll tell you what brings him out. He knows you’re an early bird, and with him being a worm, he plans on catching you.” (S5E19 "Welcome Back Bo 'N Luke")

  3. Y'all are awesome cousins, and it's an honor to break bread with y'all at the family gatherings! Now gotta add the last of the lights. First the tow rig has six small rounded-rectangular position lights. To make them all as uniform as possible I made a master shape from styrene, then made impressions of it in moldmaking material. I made a lot of extras since I wanted a lot to choose from, and would only take the best 6. This ended up being a very wise move. Clear resin was poured into the mold impressions and thank God there were 6 decent ones to use from the resulting blob. They h

  4. Now for the rotating beacon atop the rig. Found something very similar from Tony's Custom Squads. Still needed some cleaning up, and the finish redone in Alclad Stainless Steel (although Polished Aluminum perhaps might have been a better choice). License plate was made by cutting a piece of aluminum turkey roasting pan to match the size of the license plate decal. Now for the rear view mirrors. I discovered from my photos that there were two similar yet different styles used, probably meaning two different trucks used for filming the series. I settled

    William Byron won the Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead miami yesterday leading over 100 laps and winning the 2nd stage blowing past the battling Gibbs teammates on a late stage restart. Early on it looked like the race would be dominated by the Penske teammates. Then Chris Buescher came out of nowhere showing some speed from the Roush stable that hasn't been seen in a decade winning stage 1. Unfortunately the 17 car was not setup for the later part of the race when it transitioned into night and fell back to the teens. His teammate Ryan Newman faired better when the track transitioned eventually f

  16. In the episode "Daisy's Close Call" (S6 E19) Cooter is seen using a tool box from the rig. I can't see it in any other episode, so, being Hollywood, it probably wasn't there at any other time, not being a true "working" rig. Still, I thought it would be a great, even necessary, addition. I estimated the size at about 20" x 8" (when he carries it to the truck it is indeed fairly slender). From some angles the grime from being handled by a mechanic is visible. Appears to have a silver or light colored handle. I scratchbuilt it in an evening, primed it and painted it the next day.

    Toyota swept the weekend's races at the Daytona road course winning all three races. The truck race was the only controversial finish with a phantom caution thrown on the last lap which also gave Toyota it's 200th truck series win . Joe Gibbs grandson Ty Gibbs won his first Xfinity race which was also his first Xfinity series start. Christopher Bell won the Cup series race after the favorites to win were taken out of contention with bad pitstops or part failures or incidents. Denny Hamlin took out Chase Elliot with a handful of laps to go when they were battling to pass Brad Keselowski.

  20. Scratchbuilding the winch was a challenge since a lot of it was guesswork. As far as the brace/frame (not sure the correct terminology), I discovered I didn't have to guess the width; apparently it should be the same width as the chassis frame, which makes sense from an engineering standpoint. Then, the more I built, the more extra details I'd discover in the photos. This was a long, long process. The tow booms were heavily modified from those in the MPC Datsun Monster Truck kit. Both ends were totally scratchbuilt to bring it all together, after careful stu

  21. The real nightmare of this project was the wrecker. I knew almost nothing about tow trucks, and there are no tow truck models or conversion sets for anything even close to this type. I was told it was a Holmes wrecker, in the 400 series....but amazingly, Google searches with that info yielded nothing! So I went the hard route. I went through countless Dukes episodes on DVD, pausing them to photograph any good views of the unit. Yep, that's right, I photographed the TV screen, and had photo prints made. The dozens of photos I took gave just enough reference material to build this.

  23. The entire chassis has a very toylike appearance, with almost every detail molded right on as one piece. So it was completely cut apart down to the basic frame and rebuilt. Front suspension was improved a bit, rear suspension completely rebuilt, and exhaust system with mufflers was scratch built. This would have to be mostly redone a second time when I realized the wheel base needed lengthening to accommodate the Holmes wrecker. I won't tell you what I said when I realized this.... The interior was made as dirty and grimy as possible, a

  26. They were talking about this on a financial show today. They have the same problem in the summer when people are running air conditioners a lot. People don't drive a lot in an ice storm but they drive a lot in the summer so are going to be charging their cars a lot. Proposing changes make folks feel good but they don't mean anything if they can't be implemented practically.

  30. I wouldn't word it "the hots" but she is trying to look like Emma as much as possible to make me happy...fixed her hair that way, got the same glasses, slouches down a little to look shorter. She even got a job at the post office and rides wheelies on her dirt bike to deliver the letters. Of course there's the old saying "what's good for the goose is good for the gander". In exchange, I've been working on my Jesse look and sound to make her happy. Here goes "I ain't yer Uncle Jesse!" There, did that sound like him?

    I'm afraid I had to Google her name, Roger. It looks like she's been in a lot of things I've heard of, but very few that I've seen. One thing in her bio caught my eye - she's from a place in Mississippi called Purvis, which is nearly our favorite sheriff's middle name.

  33. The only girl currently on TV I think is pretty is Lacey Chabert. She does a lot of Hallmark movies now but was most famous for Mean Girls. She's nowhere as pretty as my wife or Emma Tisdale but she's okay. Maybe Hoss or someone can post a newer picture of her since I don't know how. She looks a little different now than on Mean Girls.

  38. 'Treasure of Hazzard' was on earlier, and there's a scene near the end where Daisy and Boss are fighting over the box with the payroll in it. As the others run over, I'm not convinced that that's Denver on the right. It's odd because he's in the other scenes at the end (the inset picture is taken about 30 seconds later). What do y'all think? His hair looks more gray than white. Maybe it's the same double who was caught in the shot below from 'Mason Dixon's Girls'.

A little girl was staring at me before Christmas ( she was with her grandmother, I think), at the bank and I waved my beard at her and said " Ho ho ho , if you're not good, I won't come and see you." Her grandmother leaned over to her ear and while she looked up at me, she pointed and said, " You see there? That's what I've been telling you?" LOL! Even the girls behind the counter laughed!

  45. Yes Sorrell was like Alan Hale Jr. Skipper of Gilligan's Island. Neither actor minded being typecast. They both loved being their respective characters everywhere they went. Alan could always be seen walking around wearing that same blue jersey that same black hat the same khaki pants even the same blue shoes.

  46. I caught a mistake in Mary Kaye's Baby and one in Hughie Hogg Strikes Again. The MKB one is during the chase with McQuade & Leo. Luke is driving, then Bo. It doesn't show them make a switch. The HHSA one is Bo driving in the opening scene, and then it's Luke when Hughie in the motorhome runs them into the drink.
