  1. The square in Covington also appeared in 'The Cannonball Run' - Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLuise land their plane there to buy more beer near the start of the movie.

    Frog (I'm seeing a lot of Miss Piggy/Kermit memes at the moment) 9 brains and 3 hearts. I've seen another meme a few times recently that says "If Adam & Eve had been Cajuns, they would have eaten the snake instead of the apple and saved us all a lot of trouble."

  3. Wikipedia gives a range of 255 to 325, the higher figure being attributed to Ben Jones. At the end of the day, no one knows. It's probably safe to say that the total number is around 300, or roughly two cars per episode.

    Gray car

    I think you're right. I was just pointing out that not every General was painted that color, and as you say, stunt cars were often painted with whatever orange was available.

    Runaway Satellite!

    I think it was the '73 Road Runner that they had trouble getting parts for, despite it being a later model. I'm pretty sure that the decision to switch to the Jeep was mainly because of the sponsorship, although it also meant that we got to see more of Cathy's legs! You should probably check out image hosting sites. Flickr lets you host up to 1,000 images for free. Here's a picture of the Satellite (which they painted to look like the later Road Runner):

    R. I. P. Loretta Lynn

    I just heard this sad news on the radio before I left work. They have a spot each week where they talk to a pair of American correspondents with differing political views, but both were united in their tributes to Loretta Lynn. RIP to the Coal Miner's Daughter.

  11. Given that the premise of this thread was about playing Daisy in the 2005 movie, I'd have to say no as Kate was 13 years old when the movie came out. No one could ever replace Cathy. She managed to play Daisy as sexy, demure and smart - a tough act to pull off. Anyone else playing Daisy would need all of these qualities. I also think that the part should have gone to a relatively unknown actor, but the studio would never have gone for that in a blockbuster movie.

  12. Although sometimes double sided discs are supposedly considered slightly better quality...they also are many times known for having playback problems—with freezing up or not wanting to load at all. I bought each of the DOH original double sided season DVD sets as they were released. Most play fine...however, I will be honest and say that I’ve had issues with the Season 3 set—specifically Disc 2 side B, and Disc 4. A few years ago I re-bought the same set off eBay, and it seemed to play fine. Then, eventually the same discs started having issues again?? I saw the complete series on DVD, with the one sided discs, for sale in Walmart the other day...I’m considering getting it just to have as a back up for my original sets. What I would absolutely love would be for the entire original series to be digitally remastered for a complete series Blu-ray set! But, sadly that probably won’t ever happen.

  16. The car, complete with 3D printed pieces, looks really good. For some reason the sound was about six seconds out of sync when I watched it, but it seems OK now that I've refreshed the page, so it was probably an issue at my end. Just one little criticism - the side markers on the front fenders are further forward and higher on a '69 Charger. BTW. I used to work in the sign industry many years ago, before the modern re-positionable vinyls were available. We used to make our own application spray with a dilution of a detergent called Brij. I don't know how easy it is to get hold of.

I’m not sure how to change the size, or if that’s possible...but it does get old never being able to post a photo. But, the original town square & courthouse in Covington, Georgia that was first used as the Hazzard town square, was later seen in Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986) as the town of Crystal Lake—Jason Vorhees’ stomping/chopping grounds.

    Next Gen Cars

    They are using the Next Gen cars now. Here's an article listing the differences between last season's cars and the Next Gen cars: https://www.cbssports.com/nascar/news/nascar-next-gen-car-explaining-the-ins-and-outs-of-the-nascar-cup-series-new-racecar-for-2022/ Some of the changes are a shorter greenhouse, shortened deck lid, and widened track width, as well as 18" forged aluminum wheels and wider tires. The wheels will feature a single lug-nut design, as opposed to the traditional five lug-nut design of previous generations. Interestingly, the Next Gen cars "feature upgraded specs to match modern passenger vehicle technology, including an independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, and larger brakes." Does this mean that they are becoming more like "stock" cars?

    I'm sure that Roger would've loved my day out today. No motorbikes, but all sorts of farming machinery on display. This is usually the time of year for the National Ploughing Championships, but this year it's also Ireland's turn to host the World Ploughing Championships (BTW. "ploughing" is just the correct way to spell "plowing" ). It's normally where I pick up my year's supply of free pens, but freebies were thin on the ground this year. Due to Covid, it's the first time that the event has been held since 2019. It's now the fourth time I've been to the event, and I still haven't seen any actual ploughing (it's done on neighboring fields). What most of the nearly 300,000 visitors go for are the stalls and stands selling all manner of goods and services.

    Gray car

    It's been all but confirmed the beauty cars(cars seen close up) were painted 1975 Corvette Flame Red, GM code 70. I remember reading an article that stated when they scanned the trunk lid it matched Corvette Flame Red. Even a scan of old paint won't give accurate results. Reds, yellows and oranges tend to change more than other colors over time. They did use other orange colors on the stunt cars mostly to save money and would often mix leftovers to make enough to paint a car. Some people think Hemi Orange was used but it wasn't. Hemi Orange is a 1969 Dodge Charger color but it's a very dark red-orange and almost always photographs red. Hemi Orange does have a light metallic in it too. 1975 Corvette Flame Red is the main color of the General Lee.

    Gray car

    You forgot to mention that the General was green in 'Southern Comfurts'. Regarding the color, apparently they used Big Bad Orange in the movies. For the series, it's widely published that the General was Corvette Flame Red, but I found a 2020 article which includes a video of Travis Bell on Ed Bolian's VINwiki YouTube channel. He claims to have color-scanned the trunk of the original General and found the color to be TNT Express. That's a color I'm familiar with because it was used by the TNT Express shipping company (similar to FedEx or UPS), and I'd often see their trucks on the motorway. It looks like TNT Express was bought out by FedEx nearly a year ago. Here's the video:

    I always used to think the monarchy was a waste of time and money but as I got older I realized the importance of history, tradition and legacy. It's too bad we don't understand that on this side of the Atlantic. We seem to want to deny history happened by rewriting it and destroying the past. This cancel culture thing makes me sick.

    Thanks, Roger. I never got to meet the Queen (I've saw her at a distance a few times when I was younger), but she's been a figurehead for Britain since well before I was born. Some people will say that a monarchy's an outdated concept in the 21st century, but having a non-political head of state pays dividends too. She hung on just long enough to meet the UK's new Prime Minister a couple of days ago. The Queen's oldest son, Charles, now becomes the King.

  44. Today I cut down the 70 front grill to make a bumper. I need to decide whether to keep it like it is or to try to extend it back over the fender. Doing that will leave a bit of a visible seam in the chrome, so I'm not sure if it's worth doing vs just leaving it this shape and cleaning it up a bit.

  45. hmm a warning to Rosco maybe? Actually, I wonder if some of the fender benders on the show could have been avoided if Boss would just buy new brakes for the patrol cars. I bet he puts used ones on them to save money.

  46. Super interesting thanks for the link! Looks like the Dukes landmarks made it all the way to 93/94 before being torn down. Too bad there's not a shot between 85 and 92 when the field of 20 something GL's and other hazzard vehicles could have been seen from above. Clearly the Wayne Wooten deal had already taken place by the time we get to the 1992 aerial.

  47. I have this 1977 Monaco i have had for about 5 years now and it is time for it to go to a good home and get made in to a Rosco clone car. It is the perfect car the body is solid because cars don't rot here in Texas. the interior is pretty rough but all floor pans are solid. Oh, it is mechanically sound the A/C does works great but needs a charge every couple years so it has a small leak. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere it runs and drives that good. Just send me a message i have tons of pictures and video of the car.

  50. I think we've all seen that car from every angle. The video can't have anything we haven't seen. However, some parents may prefer their kids learn that stuff in shop class, when they're old enough. And I agree, that sure is one hot car. Easily the best I've seen. I hope Jessica doesn't block too much of the view. WTF????? a hot chick in a bikini washing the general and you are worried that she's blocking the view of the car...are you gay?
