  1. The Jude emery car and wrecked patrol cars are top on my list for sure. I'm going to have the sawmill patrol car too.
  2. I'm adding a junkard outback of my Hazzard Garage model and I'm hoping ya'll can help me with some suggestions on what cars to add to the model. Many times in the series, Cooter mentions having something 'out back' (like the extra Chargers that time they made decoy General Lees). Who can remember other examples? Mark
  3. I think its only as invasive as you allow it to be. If the CIA is monitoring people, there are many more ways to do it than just social media. In my opinion, the benefits of being able to communicate with folks of similar interests far outweigh the possibility of the government reading your Dukes of Hazzard posts.
  4. As many of you know, Ben 'Cooter' Jones owns and operates 3 Dukes of Hazzard attractions in Tennessee and Virginia. The Virginia location, which was located in Sperryville, has recently moved location a few miles away to neighboring Luray, Virgina. The new Luray location is the biggest venue he has ever had- when it is finished it will have a retail store, Daisy's Diner, Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia museum, and will house replicas of the General Lee, Boss Hogg's Caddy, Roscoe's Patrol Car, Cooter's tow truck, and others. The retail store and Daisy's Diner is already open 7 days a week (and you won't find a better grilled cheese sandwich anywhere). The retail store carries a great line of original Dukes merchandise- everything from lighters to stuffed General Lees, and of course great T-shirts. Admission is always free, but I challenge any Dukes fan to visit without buying at least a T-Shirt! In addition, about a quarter of the building is being turned into a replica of Cooter's Garage that visitors can explore! Construction of the garage 'set' is currently underway and is stating to look very familiar (see pictures below). I've had the privilege of working with Ben Jones and his wife Alma to bring the garage to life. Its an amazing and fun project, but the best part has been getting to know Ben and Alma and their extended Hazzard 'family' who work with them to run all the Cooter's locations. Ben and Alma are two of the most genuine and creative people I've ever met. The grand opening of the Luray location will be May 6th of this year when Cooter's hosts the Shenandoah Jamboree music festival. But the big Dukes blow-out comes on July 29 and 30 with 'Cooter's Last Stand'. This event will be a 'Dukesfest' style event with vendors, music, Dukes cast members, and a General Lee jump!

  5. The one she rode in on at the beginning of the Reunion movie- I'd like to know what make/model if anyone can ID it. Thanks! Mark
  6. I felt the same way about the fictional town of Mayfield from Leave it to Beaver. I actually got to 'visit' Mayfield by working on the 80s revival series for a short time and going to the backlot locations where it was made, so it really does feel real to me.
