    For anyone not familiar with the Jensen Interceptor, Top Gear made a spoof '70s show called 'The Interceptors' a few years ago, and each of them drove an Interceptor. The title sequence is below. I notice that the bikini model at 0:19 has to put her legs between the front seats, so it looks like you're right about the rear legroom . (For some reason the still image makes it look like the video has been deleted, but the play button works)

    They're a rare sight nowadays, but I have seen a few over the years, although I've never sat in one. I seem to remember that they came with a 6.3l Chrysler V8, so they're not 100% British .

    I think it would be fair to say that Lance Stroll and Max Verstappen each suffered a horrendous crash in Baku. Rear tire punctures caused them to crash on the straight at around 180 and 200 mph respectively. Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton's mistake at the late restart ended his 54-race streak of top-10 finishes.

  11. Okay, once the paint cures, it's time to fully detail the engine bay. I use as many photos of the real thing as possible and try to copy what I see in them. Since every one of them seems to be different, I end up just using the best possible features to scratchbuild and copy. I keep a supply of 4-5 different sizes of plastic-coated wire in varying colors, plus fine metal wire. Several details on the firewall as well as the water reservoir and horn were scratchbuilt. Master cylinder & servo housing were painted with Alclad lacquers (Stainless Steel & Titanium)

  12. Late in Season 1 when they switched to the '71 Satellite, they painted it in a yellow to match the original '73/4 Roadrunner. For the RR it had been a factory standard for that particular year, but apparently for continuity (and hoping the fans would not notice the change) they painted the new Satellite in the same shade of yellow as the Roadrunner. Thus it was a non-standard color for a '71 Plymouth of any sort. After much research, and following an online discussion, the color seems to have been "Yellow Blaze." Fortunately Scalefinishes.com, who produces factory-matching colors for a

    When I first encountered boot sales it was in the UK. Maybe once a month in the summer, ordinary people would drive to a field and sell their old stuff out of the boot (trunk) of their car, normally with a folding picnic or wallpaper table to display their goods. You never knew what you'd find as the people changed each time. The one I went to on Sunday is probably about 90% traders in vans, so there's not much variety week to week. I sometimes buy bits and pieces, and it's a good place to get a huge range cheap low-end tools. I think you're right that flea market or swap meet would be yo

  15. K folks, it's been a tough end of the school year unlike any other, so I'm finally able to return to the project. Rear tires are slightly larger than the front ones, and going into my spare tires resulted in only mismatching tires of differing sizes. Fortunately I was able to source tires of the same type/appearance and apparently correct sizes from Fireball Modelworks. Fortunately they also fit the wheel rims that a fellow modeler was kind enough to send me. Then the inner wheel hubs had to be reduced in size to fit the tires; had to do this now so as to know exactl

    I can believe the queues. A friend and I went to the local boot sale on Sunday (the definition of boot sale varies, but this one has indoor and outdoor stalls mainly filled with traders, but there are also a few families selling off their old stuff). It was a hot day, so I guess a lot of people had the same idea. We had a small queue to get in, but nothing prepared us for the 50 minutes it took to get out of the car park. We didn't even move for 30 minutes. I spent the afternoon back in town chatting to friends over coffee and ice cream and enjoying the sun.

    RIP Turk from "Enos"

    I don't think 'Enos' was ever shown over here, and I've only ever seen a few grainy clip on YouTube, so I didn't put two and two together when I saw an article titled Samuel E Wright: Tributes paid to actor who voiced crab in The Little Mermaid a couple of days ago. It doesn't mention 'Enos', but as well as voicing Sebastian, Samuel apparently had a very successful stage career including playing Mufasa in the original Broadway production of 'The Lion King' and was part of the original Broadway cast of 'Jesus Christ Superstar' in 1971. Speaking about his part in 'The Little Mermaid' in Ent

  21. It was probably due to having to add/shed weight or muscle for another role in either a movie or play he was in while not filming Dukes of Hazzard. He was in two tv movies in 1984 which were probably filmed in 1983.

  22. Seeing a rocking chair do that would be awesome. Any other cool stories about that house? The end of The Village is why I liked it so much so we couldn't disagree more. It certainly wasn't an ending for everybody. You either loved it or hated it...no in between. The Cabin in the Woods is the same way. I also like Johnny Depp's Dracula movie but I'll usually only watch movies like that for Halloween. I can't think of the name. I just thought of this. When you saw the rocking chair slide did you go into the basement to check for silver thieves?

  24. As I mentioned above, the Plymouth Fury is completely surrounded by polystyrene and that's within a cardboard box with no windows. I usually keep my models "mint in box", but I decided to carefully open the box just to make sure that the car was in perfect condition. The light bar is wrapped separately in the top of the box, with the car inside the main packaging. It's quite a weighty model and feels substantial, but it's not up to the detail level of some of my previous purchases. Only the front doors open, so no opening hood with engine, and no trunk. The tires are plastic rather than r

  25. Our non-essential stores only reopened yesterday, and today I treated myself to one of these. Unfortunately, the model is encased in polystyrene, so it can't be displayed in the box. They also had a 1975 Coronet in Hazzard livery, but they're not cheap over here and I couldn't justify buying both!

    I see that Romain Grosjean took his first IndyCar pole at the Grand Prix of Indianapolis this weekend and ended up finishing second. He's due to make a one-off return to F1 with a demonstration run at the French Grand Prix next month.

  29. The day is coming where owning a Dukes DVD will be a criminal offense. I know that sounds crazy but think about it. This is a trend we're seeing. Something in motion stays in motion unless acted on by another force. There is no force powerful enough to stop this trend. This political correct insanity cannot be put back in the bottle. America has spoken. The voters decided to vote liberals in and they now control everything. This will not end well for people like us.

    Thanks Dixie but don't give me too much credit. Because of my deep love of the show, I have amassed a pretty fat notebook full of information about Hazzard County. I've learned to depend on the notebook more than my memory. *starts looking around frantically* Now, if I can just remember where I put my notebook.

    Checked out a new park over the weekend. It was nice besides the noise, It was next to the airport and turnpike. The 180th was out doing maneuvers, those F16's are really loud. Did see a turkey, oriole, rare Karner Blue butterfly and some neat wildflowers. Those rare minutes of absolute quiet besides the birds made it feel like we were way out in the boony's especially considering the parking lot only had two spaces so it must be a rarely visited park. We also went to the farmers market downtown. First time we've been there since our grandparents took us as kids. Omg was it packed, I'm as

    Lately I've been bingeing videos on the Project Farm channel on YouTube. It's nice to see some honest comparison tests on various products from a good old country boy. Did some zen gardening yesterday morning, that helped drop my stress level. Weather wise we might set two records this week. Forecasters are saying we might set a new high temp tomorrow and a new low temp Friday morning.

    John on The Doctors

    They actually have the videos up on their website now https://www.thedoctorstv.com/videos/john-schneider-on-being-unapologetic-about-dukes-of-hazzard Love how the lady says she grew up on the Dukes but now won't watch it because of the flag and keeps hammering her point no matter what John says. The other Dr made a good call by ending the interview there as she was just going to keep it up. Here's the other part of the interview https://www.thedoctorstv.com/videos/dukes-of-hazzards-john-schneider-takes-on-modern-day-bullying I also shared the links on your FB post.

    Logan Lucky movie

    I watched 'Logan Lucky' last night and it was fun. I'm not quite sure why they cast an American as the main British character and Daniel Craig as an American, but I'll view the next James Bond film in a new light (if they ever release it)! I checked IMDb after watching the movie and then had to skip through it again to spot all the cameos by NASCAR drivers. There's Ryan Blaney, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson, and Mike Joy, Darrell Waltrip and Jeff Gordon all appear as themselves at the race.

  47. You are very welcome, Roger. Was excited to see JJ win again, though was wishing it was Gordon. I am tired of hearing the media people keep counting all the races since his last win - like I need reminding of that. Anyway, was glad to see JJ bounce back...he normally does when he has a poor race as he had the last race so it wasn't surprising to see him win, especially at a track he is so dominant at.

    Q & A of NASCAR

    Sam Hornish Jr drove IndyCar, not F1. I think IndyCar is a lot easier for non-Americans to break into than NASCAR. If you look at the current IndyCar lineup there's at least 6 Brits as well as about 8 or 9 Brazilians and others from Japan, Colombia etc.. at least 2 of which are ex-F1. I guess the money's pretty good in NASCAR, so drivers tend to stay if they can. There's a 4 week mid-season break in F1 at present, so I only had BTCC (British Touring Car Championship) to watch this weekend. It's probably the nearest we have to NASCAR, although all the tracks are what you would call road course

Gretchen brings a more independant spirit to country , sort of like early Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton....Just my opinion..
