  1. So, here's my take: I intensely dislike (hate's too strong a word for someone I've never met) TB (Mainly because of what went down with LEE1), so I took it with a grain of salt.

     

    I've been binging Kibbe and Friends, and they actually just released an episode on this:

    http://www.themusclecarplace.com/kibbe-and-finnegan/kf-show-165/

    The gist is Corndog, one of the co hosts (he also runs the Real General Lee website/Facebook/Instagram page), is a bodyman by trade and says that depending on many different factors, a paint reader can return many variations because it matches the color with a database. Whatever color the paint was sprayed over (T3 Bronze in Lee1's case) can also play a role. 

     

    Now, Renaud Valuzet, one of the crew that built a majority of the TV cars (If it's in CA and has the narrow bar, it's 98% likely to be a Valuzet car) told Kibbe at one point they used "Dulux Code 70 Enamel". 

     

    Code 70 is the GM color code for 1975 Corvette Flame Red. 

     

    I may be messing a bit up, I only listened to it once. But it's worth a listen. 

     

    In other words, it's highly unlikely that they specifically went for TNT Express Orange. We'll probably never know unless the guys that built the first 3 Lees ever come out and discuss it (if they're still with us- I don't think I've ever heard who they were, come to think of it).

     

    I've also heard that the first 3 were Hemi Orange, but they didn't like how it showed up on cameras so they switched to Flame Red. The first three may have been repainted Flame Red after Hemi Orange. I don't have a source because I can't exactly remember where I read that. 

     

  2. Reading that again just raises more questions about that last GA Lee. If the roll bar was from Lee1 then what the heck was cut out of Lee1 when it was restored?

    I'm thinking of making a dedicated GA Lee thread since they're my favorite of all the Generals.

    What a fascinating story. It has more twists than a Hazzard County dirt road. Thanks for sharing it JRC99 and it sure is good to hear from you again. And HAPPY BIRYHDAY later this week!

    Thank you! True to Duke spirit, I'm planning on trying Moonshine since I'm turning 21.

    Hey do you have any update to this Lee? Is this a 69 or 68. What was the original color? Is there any sign from where a roll cage was welded to the floor? The 3 chargers that went back to Ca were Lee 3 and the 2 68s built in Ga. So if this is real its either Lee 2 or its the High Octane Lee. From the lack of crash damage to the rear, if it is authentic it has to be Lee 2.

    Well, according to this it can't be Lee2. Article claims Lee2's roof was cut off when they built the last GA Lee. The stories on the early cars are so intriguing yet so contradictory.

    Here's a fairly obvious one from 'High Octane'. For most of the chase at the end of the episode Roxanne Huntley is driving a Ford Granada with round headlights (1975-77 model) ...

    ... yet when she pulls up to Sweet Tillie she's driving a later model Granada (1978-80) with square headlights. Strangely, both cars seem to have the same grille. After a bit of research it appears to belong to later car (below).

    Isn't that the exact same car the FBI dudes drove in Daisy's Song?

  6. I agree with this. A new DOH game should be GTA style but my opinion it should have 147 missions(1 for each original episode) ie:mission 1 should be episode one, One Armed Bandits;mission 2,Daisy's song and so forth.

    Sorry to drag up an old thread,but THIS would be awesome,considering the vast size of GTA IV and San andreas,it's not IMPOSSIBLE,Duke fans,Let's get on a developer's case for this!
