  3. Special Message for General Lee Owners Hey All Y'all General Lee owners, From the way things are already shaping up, DukesFest in Music City is going to be by far the biggest Hazzard County shindig ever! And of course, it wouldn't be DukesFest with the General Lee (The real star of the show, as we all know). We want make this year special for all the General Lee owners. We know how much work goes into them and we know how far many of y'all have to come. So this year "Hazzard County display cars," Generals, Police cars, Daisy's Jeeps, etc… Will be assigned a special entrance and the occupants will receive free tickets for the weekend. (Don't sweat it if you've already paid we'll refund your money at the gate.) We'll have a place of honor for the all The Generals and a separate viewing area for the other Hazzard cars. This year we'll have dash plaques and inspection stickers from Cooter's Garage for the display cars. And everybody's already talking about "The Parade of the General Lee's." Make sure your horns are working! We will do our very best to provide a specific time for cast signatures. This has proved to be very difficult in the past but like I say we'll try our durndest. We will soon be posting registration forms for the display cars and more detailed information. In the meantime, "Keep your gown down, the pedal to the metal, watch out for ol' Roscoe and keep it tween' the ditches." Ben AKA "Cooter" and Miss Alma
  4. sounds like some stuff have changed at www.cootersplace.com thanks the the kind folks at cglfc Special Message for General Lee Owners Hey All Y'all General Lee owners, From the way things are already shaping up, DukesFest in Music City is going to be by far the biggest Hazzard County shindig ever!

  5. you and the other 5 hours worth of people in the line in front of you
  6. you can buy tickets in advance at www.cootersplace.com but last year they didn't sell out it costs regular admission to get your general lee into the show this year its gonna be a the the music city motorplex in nashville. the are hotels, but its the weekend before country music fest so hotels might be crowded. i dont think the movie cast will be there, but it sounds like alot of the origninal cast members might be. it's been annouced to be taking place the first weekend in june and i believe the motorplex is not far from the airport, so if your were to fly and rent a car you probably wont have much of a problem (in fact is will probably be cheaper than driving... we drive from worcester mass, and its very expensive, but we tow our charger, so we dont have the option to fly) you guys should really check out www.cootersplace.com im not a spokeman for them or anythng, but all the information you need to start planing is on there.
  7. hey guys, just noticed that www.cootersplace.com had this posted: COOTER'S PLACE IN MUSIC CITY 2416 Music Valley Drive Suite 118 Nashville, TN 37214 Phone: 615-872-8358 As Rosco P. Coltrane would say, "Good news, Good news!!" We are proud to announce that "Cooter's Place in Music City," our new shop and museum in Nashville, Tennessee, is NOW OPEN. Our new place will be in Music Valley Village, directly across McGavock Pike from the Grand Ol' Opry and the Opryland Hotel. I'll be there with Cooter's Garage Band and there will be plenty of hot barbecue and cold drinks. And you can bet some General Lees will come rollin' in, too. Nashville will be a great 2nd home for Cooter's. It's the home of country music, of the Grand Ol' Opry and CMT. It's easy to get to and there is plenty to do when you get there. We sure hope y'all can come to the Grand Opening and help us get it going!
  8. i would also enjoy a copy of this episode, i have a black charger and havent seen this episode since i was little... it's gonna be awhile before this one comes out on dvd and im not sure i can wait that long if anyone can make me a copy, please email me at khunt@northborough.com
  9. hey, theres nothing wrong with using another hazzard site! im subscribed to 4 of them! i dont use one more than the other... i dont think it's wrong to promote another forum, maybe it has something different to offer than this one. they all have their positives and negatives, for instance, cglfc has only 4 categories, so there are less to click on when you just want to see whats new, but this one has a ton of forums, which helps when you want to really be specific about a question or an answer. neither are better than the other! bad choice of words to say "bigger and better" though... you could have just said another or new.... but i doubt you meant any harm. personal message me the address of your site, the moderators took it off this post, but im game for anything... i'd love to check it out.
  10. that a great article, do you have the link for it?
  11. hey that would be awesome, make sure you take pictures, im sure there arent many people that have seen the new cooters yet!
  12. there you go... if anyone else wants them let me know... theyre pretty close up because i was hoping to get some decals made for my jeep. unfortunatly i couldnt get a straight shot at them because the jeep was in the garage for dukesfest weekend. if anyone else wants to see them let me know
  13. hey i took pictures of dixie when i went to cooters place, i got some dreat shots of the decals because i was hopeing to turn my cj into the dixie...i took a whole bunch of them, but im not sure how to post them on this site... if you give me your email ill send them to you... they're great shots of the real thing
  14. my boyfriend and i have a charger and a cj7.... i cant talk him into making it a golden eagle like dixie though my favorite car has always been a roadrunner and i've been looking for one, but i would have to sell the cj in order to get one, and i dont think i can part with it. if i had a roadrunner i wuld deffinatly paint it yellow. i dont know how i would get it to dukesfest... its hard enough to get the charger down there... oh, and i saw dixie at cooter's place, shes pretty as ever! does anyone remeber the episode where daisy says: "lets take THE dixie"? i remember how mad i was when she said THE dixie.... like she was trying to make it like THE general lee.... i think it was in season 3
  15. there were a bunch of people in line with their hoods, but if your in the parade of generals, they come around and autograph your car. my black general wasn't in the parade, but i did take off my glovebox cover and bring it through the line. so far its been signed by rosco cletus and cooter
  16. i think i saw the dixie doorbell on ebay... my roomates said i couldnt get it though
  17. i can't find the address for cooter's place in nashville... does anyone know where it is?
  18. i've been looking everywhere for pictures of the general lee when it was black. i know that it appeared black in "a little game of pool" and "happy birthday general lee" but those two episodes were in season 5 and 7...which arent out yet. i've searched the interenet, but all i've been able to find are thumb-nail sized pictures...does anyone know where i can find some good-quality clips (that i can blow up to see detail)? or am i gonna have to wait for season 5? --katie
  19. hey thanks! i spoke to someone through cootersplace too, but if anyone can get me any info that would be awesome! the people at cooter's place are awesome! they are very busy and im sure have very important things to do, in my experiance they do get back to you when they get the chance! thats kind of why im starting early on getting ready...plus I had such an amazing time at dukesfest last year...i just cant wait! thanks again katie

  21. does anyone know anything about the show car entry to dukefest 2006? we're from massachusetts, it took us 24 hours to get down there pulling our black general last year, and once there it took us forever to figure out how to get it into the show...we even missed most of the first day. this year i hope to figure that all out before we leave... if we aren't sure about getting the car in the show, we might not pull it down with us again plus, we heard that there was a breakfast for general lee owners, but we didn't learn about it soon enough, does anybody know of anything that is happening around dukefest that car owners ar invited to? we spent alot of time getting ready for dukesfest last year, and alothough we had a blast, and will coem back every year, it was very disppointing to miss out on the show, the parade and the breakfat, i really hope to engage is maximum participation this year.... thanks to anyone who can help! katie
  22. talk about no sun protection at bristol!!!! we brought our car, and i ended up sitting in the shade in the car...and i STILL had blisters!
