  1. Ben Jones is having a shin dig in Nashville with a few of the cast there to sign autographs, and there's another event in Covington the same weekend. Here's Cooter's event: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hazzard-countys-40th-birthday-to-be-celebrated-in-nashvilles-music-valley-january-26th-2019-tickets-52503421146. I have an event of my own that weekend that prohibits me from going to either (I'd sooner go to Covington) but maybe one of you can make it and report back.

    Rosco Sheriff's hat?

    Felt hats can easily be reshaped as well, though I recommend you have a professional do it.
  3. As we celebrate our nation's birthday, I hope we all have a safe and fun day with family and friends.
  4. Wow, what a hard hit. The car held up better than I'd expect, really. Those tiny numbers on the General's door make me scrunch my nose a bit.

    New here, but not to the community

    It'd be hard to place a favorite character, as each one has their own attributes. As a dad, I always want to be as steadfast and honorable as Jesse, and as a law-man, as honest and forgiving as Enos. As a man thrust kicking and screaming into middle age, as fun and carefree as Bo, but as loyal and responsible as Luke. Rosco, despite his flaws, had diehard loyalty to his little fat buddy, and doesn't everyone want to be as crazy as Cooter and desired as Daisy? As far as Boss, I like to focus on Sorrell himself, as an incredibly intelligent and educated man, and a fantastic actor. I'm partial to the Georgia episodes and Lees, but don't really have a favorite episode. I'd have to watch them all again to reassess. I have all the seasons, of course, but don't have much time these days with 12 hour shifts and a little man in the other room. I went to Dukesfest '05 and met most of the stars, except Jimmy Best, unfortunately. I have photos and autographs, including Jimmy's. Never met Coy or Vance. Like many of you, I've been watching the Dukes since I was kneehigh to a grasshopper, and I told my mom when I was 7 that I wanted a Charger. Finally got it at 30 or so. I used to drive a '67 Deville convertible, white of course, tag BAWS HOG. I have a '78 Fury but it's now in pretty sad shape, and my once gorgeous '69 RT clone has seen better days. All my old pics are on Photobucket, and I don't have time to go through them right now. Just got the small fry down to sleep and have chores to do before the sandman comes and kicks me in the face.

    1:18 Scale General Lee

    What's funny (to me) is that casual observers of a General sometimes comment that the General isn't correct because it has the flags in the back or the "wrong" pushbar. The wide bar and lack of crossed flags out back are what most people think are correct, when of course, both are. I'm a narrow fan, myself.

    General Lee builder's guide?

    Just to update, but I'll create another post about it, I ended up basically guessing on my door. I was making a passenger door wall mount for my kid's 01st birthday party. I used some screen grabs and approximated the placement of the 01, and I'm happy to say I think I got it. I know that the show used far less precision that we do, but I've seen some baaaaad placement over the years and couldnt' have lived with that! Sorry for the late reply, I did not get notifications of the responses.
  9. Saw it on Cooter's Facebook that Tom Wopat will be at Cooter's on 10/6 and 10/7. Here's the event page: https://cootersplace.com/event/oct-6th-7th-tom-wopat-luke-will-cooters-gatlinburg/ My folks have a place down the road a little ways, so I'm hoping to get there.
  10. I used to post quite a bit on CGLFC and stepped away from the Dukes/Charger scene when my Charger had an unfortunate accident. I recently decided to get the old boy up and running again and dust off my Dukes collection for my son's 01st birthday, and was sad to find many of the old Dukes websites gone. Happy to find this one intact, and the photo thread is absolutely EPIC.
  11. None of them were that important...one that strikes my memory is someone noticing something attached to a leaf spring and not realizing it was the standard helper spring that was added to many of the Generals. I've seen them more on the jump cars than hero cars. If I get REALLY bored at work I'll go through the whole thread again.
  12. Wow...took me a couple weeks to look through all of those photos. I saw some questions asked that I was going to respond to, but they were from years ago and didn't bother. lol.
  13. Years ago there was a website that gave all the particulars about building a GL, including the proper placement of the decals. That site is no more, and I've lost the instructions with my decal kit. Is there a source for measurements and the like? Thanks.
