  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")

    Hey guys check your tires this morning there's several recalls on several brands for blowouts. https://www.yahoo.com/news/tires-among-440-000-across-211013695.html https://www.yahoo.com/news/continental-general-barum-tires-recalled-220646338.html If you happen to have a set on your vehicle inspect them before driving on them.

    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

  13. You make it sound so easy. This would be an impressive build if it was all shiny, but the weathering and dirt take it to another level. I can't believe that you even used different guitar strings for the aerials - that's attention to detail!

  14. 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.

    I have a suggestion. Why don't we have a Dukes Of Hazzard Holiday? We could decide what day it will be and what we will do to celebrate the greatest show ever to be on TV. We could celebrate it every year....same day, month etc.

    We are certainly heading down a slippery slope and it is quite troubling. I can see a future where even if you try to look up Dukes of Hazzard it won't even come up on any search engines because the ban will be that thorough. It won't happen anytime soon but at the rate culture is being chipped away it will happen. I can't even watch TV anymore. I get it. There should be equal rights for everybody. I'm all for that. Anybody who is not for equal rights for everybody is an idiot. What I'm sick of is constantly being vilified for being a straight white man. I don't want to be treated better than

    Coronavirus

    Don't get complacent after you get the vaccine, you still can be a carrier and infect others. One lady I do odd-jobs for recently went out to eat with old co workers since she got both shots if the pfizer vaccine. Turns out one if the co workers had covid and didn't show signs till the day after. Now she and everyone else in the group has to quarantine for the next 7-10 days. Her Dr also told her she might experience mild covid symptoms but should be fine though she does have underlying health conditions so hopefully the vaccine will help her body's immune system kick covid's butt. Be vigilant

    The Cartoon

    I agree with most of what you are saying but despite the cartoon's faults I loved them and thought they were worth every penny. Maybe having them travel the world was Warner Brothers way of attracting a larger world-wide audience. If that was their strategy it would have worked better in season 2 and not season 5. It would have been awesome if they would have stayed in Hazzard. Still, I bet Hoss likes the ones that were based in his neighborhoods, including the Christmas episode.

  34. Dang that's funny! Okay, almost there...I learned the front bumper is probably made from quarter inch steel coated in thick black rubber. I also noticed there were two styles that showed up on the GMC truck in the series, again probably indicating two different vehicles masquerading as one for the filming. One of them was straight and flat, and the other curled around the corners of the fenders. I opted for the curled type. Made it from .020" plastic, carefully curled, then added three wire mounts, disguised from the front as the actual bolts that hold it on. Then added

  37. 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

  39. I just checked my notebook. The first episode of season 2 is where I have this listed "Shorty's All Night Rib Shack and Pool Hall on Swamp Road". On season 5 episode 6 I have listed "All Night Pizza Parlor on Frontage Road". On season 4 episode episode 25 and season 5 episode 7 I have listed "All Night Supermarket on Frontage Road" I do have a Hazzard Hospital listed on season 5 episode 17. Bear in mind that some of the episode numbers could be off by one depending on whether or not a two parter was listed as one episode.

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!

  47. The continuity and accuracy in the cartoons is pretty poor. I posted a few inconsistencies here. In 'The Dukes of London', the policeman who stops the Dukes with what he thinks is the Queen's dog has a pink mustache (it wasn't colored in) for part of the scene. That would be a railway crossing in England, Roger. The Queen famously keeps and breeds corgis, but I suppose that wouldn't make such a good story. Aren't Flash and Regina both female? Where would the puppies come from?

    map of Hazzard

    Here's some more counties. Most of them just get mentioned in a single line. Chicamahawny comes up in a few episodes (sometimes as a place rather than a county), and is spelled at least three different ways. I also remember Hatchapee being spelled Hatchipee in an episode. I'll have to do some more digging to work out which county belongs to which episode. Clarion County Cherokee County Grand County Chicamahawny County Claridge County Placid County Polk County Milford County Plainview County Riverton County Rapaho County Fulton County And don't forget Rockdale County and Newton County - the rea

    map of Hazzard

    Some of the inconsistencies can be difficult to deal with. For example, on "The Runaway", Mabel Tillingham says the Dukes live on Mill Pond Road which is 18 miles from Hazzard. Two episodes later, Lester Crabb (Treasure of Hazzard) says they live on Mill Road. For my map, I'm going with Mill Pond Road because I trust the phone operator more than a visiting sheriff that was only there one episode and probably left a word out. Also, "Mill Pond" is mentioned in other episodes. Speaking of inconsistencies, Mabel Tillingham is listed as Myrtle Tillingham on the closing credits. I'll trust the folks
