  1. Hi Cookies, nice to have another member on the Emerald Isle. I'm south of the border in Kilkenny.
  2. Thanks for your continued support Roger. I have contacted MaryAnne about posting the crosswords in an easy-to-print format (not that that's going to help you:(), and plans are under way - watch this space. What do you think I should do about solutions?. Should I post a solution grid here or in it's own thread, or should people post their solutions within this thread?. I don't want to spoil your week, but there's another crossword ready to post, and a 4th that's about 98% done. I'll probably leave posting until at least the weekend to give people a chance to do the first 2. They have been very

    My Cousin Vinny

    I always enjoy watching this film - it's one of those films that I have on DVD, but still watch when it comes on TV. First there's the cast - Joe Pesci, Marisa Tomei, Ralph (Karate Kid) Macchio, and the final film appearance of Fred Gwynne. Then there's the '64 Buick Skylark convertible and Vinny's Series 62 Caddy. Finally the defense case relies heavily on lots of technical car stuff. There's definitely something sexy about a woman quoting car stats (not that I find it hard thinking of Marisa Tomei as attractive:)). 'Top Gear' in the UK had Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz on as guests this week,
  4. Hi Earl, don't worry about mixing us up - I've only been around a couple of weeks myself. Unfortunately you did make me jealous with your car list - aside from the General I love Mustangs, especially the 60s fastbacks. I don't know the Mercury (if you hadn't noticed, I'm on the other side of 'the pond'), but I'll check it out.
  5. Chalk up 3 new converts to Smokey and the Bandit. I've just shown it to 3 twentysomethings (some born 10 years after it came out - boy does that make me feel old), and they all loved it. We do a cultural exchange - they show me modern horror stuff, and I bring 'round great car/truck/road movies - I think I'm winning. We did Convoy 2 weeks ago, Every Which Way But Loose last week and SATB this week, will probably do Any Which Way You Can, Gone in 60 Seconds (1974) or SATB 2 next week. @bush tucker man (from nearly 5 years ago, but I know he's still about). There is now a replica of Snowman's ri
  6. Hi Earl, welcome to HazzardNet. May I fall straight into cliche and ask 'how's karma treating you?' - sorry couldn't resist:). On a more serious level, and at the risk of making myself jealous, what muscle cars do you have?
  7. @coronet440 I don't know what your stone carving skills are like, but it looks as though you have room for one of these on your ranch:). (Taken from the end credits of 'The Dukes Story: Building the Legend', one of the DVD extras on season 4).
  8. Happy Birthday Jimmie. It's was great to find that you are a member of this forum, and I hope you still find the time visit these pages. Another Q & A session would be wonderful.
  9. That's probably the easiest way - you could just scroll up and down while filling out the grid in your trusty (paper) notebook - the grid you need is 25 squares wide x 19 squares high. It would be great to make it interactive, but I don't think likely/possible in a forum (unless the moderators know differently). Should I publish the answers in this thread, or a separate thread so you don't see them accidentally? How soon do you want answers?
  10. I think we got the new series later than you guys - it was shown sometime last summer if I remember correctly. I watched several episodes and thought they relied too much on the special effects. Like other posts here I didn't like KITT changing to a pickup and back - color changes are OK. I haven't seen the original for a while, but I seem to recall KITT becoming a full convertible without much explanation as well as the strange changes in Pursuit Mode - I never got those changes either. In standard form I thought the new black Mustang was pretty cool though. By the way, it looks like there's
  11. Nice car - I haven't got a Coronet in my model collection: http://www.hazzardnet.com/forums/showthread.php?p=187335#post187335 I think they only do '67, '69 and '70 in 1:18. Sadly the models are as close as I'm likely to get to owning a car like this due to finances and living in Ireland.

  12. You just separate out the colors, cut out each one separately, then overlay them (I spent 10 years in the sign business). Nowadays it would probably be printed. I like what you've done with your place. If there are any Hazzard signs you want copied, and your friend still has his cutter, PM me with a screen grab and I'll see what I can do.
  13. I found this in the same book as I got the early pic of Sorrell. I think it's the only time I've seen Denver without any facial hair. The caption claims it to be from 1958, although IMDB gives the film (Good Day For A Hanging) as 1959. Apparently he plays Deputy Ed Moore.
  14. It's probably 2 years too late, but here's my version of the Boars Nest sign. I did it because I was thinking of getting it printed on a T-shirt. The artwork is all in outline, so it could easily be cut in vinyl, or scaled large for printing. You'll see I used it for my avatar. PM me if it's any use.
  15. Hi there. I've just put up 2 crosswords on the Trivia forum which I hope you'll like. On the 2nd one I wasn't sure whether the answer to 37 across was (10) or (6,4) - you're the only person who can tell me:) - Regards, Hoss.

  16. Thanks for putting me in your friends - I hope to make many more. Crossword #2 is now up - even if you don't get a chance to try it, can you let me know if the grids are showing up ok?

  17. It was finished, so it may as well be here:). CLUES Across 1. Last name of doctor before Doc. Appleby (9). 4. Guest actor best known as Eugene Tackleberry in the Police Academy films (5,4). 8. Boss Hogg's relationship to Hughie (5). 10. Uncle Jesse drives one of these (6,5). 11 & 14 across. One of Boss's properties that's been a casino amongst other things (6,6). 12. When it's not on the road, the General is doing this through the air (6). 14. See 11 across. 15. See 3 down. 16. Mill ____ ____ - one of the addresses given for the Dukes' farm (4,4). 18.

  18. Sorry for duplicating, but I posted this online so everyone should be able to see it even if they're not a member.
  19. Hi Roger - I've tried fixing the crossword for you - hope you give it a try. You even get a name check in one of the clues in the second one I've just finished (will post soon). Also thanks for replying to my posts - I've only been a member 2 weeks and I'm a Hazzardite already!

  20. I've tried inserting a link to the attached image - it works for me as long as I'm logged in - hope this works for everyone else.
  21. The tricky bit comes near the end when you've got loads of Dukes words in, and you need to fill the gaps. In usual crosswords the compilers can choose any words - I was trying to keep to the theme which means there are a couple of clues with slightly tenuous links, and a couple of easy ones too. It pops up ok on my computer when I click the thumbnail - have you tried right-clicking the thumbnail and choosing "Open Link in New Window/Tab"? - I've tried this successfully in Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox (3.6.7) - maybe other people could let me know if they are having problems, I will have t
  22. Original, hands down. The newer film was alright, but why call it the Italian Job when the plot bears no relation to the original - at least Gone in 60 (Sixty) Seconds had some similarities. Would it have done so well if they'd had to think of a new title? In the original you get a car chase that lasts half the film, and includes loads of impressive stunts that are all done for real by Rémy Julienne and team. You also get Michael Caine saying 'you're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off' and that ending ... what more could you ask for? Maybe it's because I'm English - the original is a
  23. I enjoyed both of them. For those who haven't seen it, Eleanor in the original movie was a yellow 1973 Mach 1 Mustang (actually a '71 dressed to look like a '73). Both films involve stealing lots of cars to order, but I think that only one scene is copied directly in the newer film - the one with the drugs being blown away by the exhaust (not seen it for a while - jump in if I'm wrong). H.B. Halicki wrote, directed and starred in the original, as well as owning most of the cars used and doing his own stunts. He injured his back during one stunt that went wrong, but liked the footage and kept i
  24. Hope you give my trivia crossword a try - I have credited you in the post.

  25. It's over 2 years since Redneck girl 01 put up a crossword in the Hobbies section, so I thought I'd give it a try. I've tried not to duplicate too many answers with the previous crossword - obviously there will be some easy answers, but hopefully there are at least 1 or 2 to get you thinking. If I've goofed up any clues or numbers please let me know - it's my first crossword, and it's now after midnight here so I'm not as wide awake as I should be when checking it. Grid is below the clues as an attachment. I will post solution in a week or so, or when concensus demands. CLUES Across 3. Rosco's
