  1. Watching Limo One is Missing again tonight. I remember watching this one as a small child when it originally aired. Fun and hilarious episode, “luve” it, as Cooter would say, lol! But it was unrealistic as well. There were hardly any Secret Service agents, other than the couple in the blue sedan accompanying it. Even in 1979 there would have been more security guarding and traveling with the president’s car. But, still a memorable and enjoyable episode! I’d add some photos for fun, but they’re always too “big”.

  3. We're glad you're back with us in here MonacoMan and a few years ago ( ?) we talked about this and all agreed with you....this show sucked!! It's GOT to be the bottom of the list! They were really reaching with this one! ( Were they drunk? Ran out of ideas? Buzzing?)

  4. Yes, MonacoMan , I remember this one was very good! It was kind of unreal with no more Secret Service than that! It's kind of like in " Play It Again Luke", where that guy needed quick cash for his gambling debts and was going to kill Candy Dix ( inside joke here?....what were they trying to get across? ) and pay off his debt ......in real life it takes months to get a cash payment from an insurance company!

  9. HossC, Thanks for the detective work! I'll have to decide just how true I want to stay to the Season 1 design, or if I'm better off going with the more familiar look from the later episodes. I suspect that I'll want to stay more in line with the later look just because it's more familiar to most people, but having those screen shots really helps me make sure that my sizing and positioning is spot on. Based on those screen grabs, it looks like my badge on the door should move back a bit, as well as move up. I think I also need to make the badge a little bit bigger too.

    Good question but I bet it had something to do with Boss scamming them somehow. Having to make the mortgage payment on time was always a good foundation to write an episode. Or maybe a bunch of things just came up all at once and they had to borrow from Boss....well run dry and had to drill a new one, tractor broke down, had to buy seed corn for planting season, roof sprung a leak. When it rains it pours.

  16. The clear body all the way to the left has the styling of a 69 on the nose, but the hood looks more like a 70. But, that styling on the nose is so flat, that it's pretty bad either way, which is why I want to replace it with the 3d printed part.

    The patrol car's already looking good with its police hubcaps and new decals. The orange Charger on the left appears to be a 1970, but a front end change should correct most of the differences.

  18. This week I made a lot of progress. I revised the police decals and printed them on the actual decal sheets instead of regular paper. I also have a donor chassis that's been lengthened to fit the car. I designed and printed some hubcaps for the wheels. This is a pic of an early revision (my final revision was v14). My final Charger body arrived this week, as did my decals. All 4 have their pros and cons, and I plan to build all of them. The biggest issue with most of these bodies is that they're either not a proper 69 front end, or the body lacks detail, so I've started developing a new 3d printed grill assembly. These pics show one of my early versions in place on a couple of the bodies. I'm still working on revising these. I also built a chassis for the hard body car, but now I need to lengthen it to fit the wheelbase.

  19. Are you saying Uncle Jesse's truck didn't really jump over that moving train in season 7? Are you saying they were just scale models. Sorry, but I'm not believing you.

    It appears to have been based on the 1997/98 championship when the PC and Playstation games were released. They featured commentary by former racing driver and former Top Gear presenter Tiff Needell. The Game Boy Color version came out in 2000 with simplified graphics and gameplay. It looks like all versions got good reviews at the time.

    The last 24 hours

    I went to the seaside again on Sunday, but got back too late to write about it. This time I only got one swim because the beach we went to is on an estuary, and when the tide is out, the edge of the water is over a quarter of a mile away! It just seemed like a better idea to enjoy the sun on the beach. This week we got fish & chips and a fancy ice cream on the way home.

    I haven't been following Formula-E much, but the final two rounds of this year's season took place in South Korea, so they happened to be shown live while I was making breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. It must have been a while since I last watched as they now complete a 45 minute race without the need to swap cars midway through. Congratulations to former F1 driver Stoffel Vandoorne whose second place finish in the last race was enough to clinch this year's title. It was also a win for the Mercedes team who are leaving the sport to concentrate on Formula 1. I still don't think I've been converted from gasoline-based cars. The lack of noise and pollution means that Formula E can race in city center locations which probably wouldn't be available to conventional cars, but I prefer more open tracks which aren't like racing down a corridor of barriers. They also have 'gimmicks' like Fanboost and Attack Mode which probably appeal to the gamers, but don't really do anything for me. Formula 1 has been using hybrid engines since 2014, and the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) has introduced them this year. I think NASCAR are doing some hybrid demos next year.

  39. Cousin Roger Duke... Yes please be careful! Don't have a crash like my brother did. Even though it was the car driver's fault for running the stop sign. My brother had to either hit the car's bumper, or try to go around and miss him. My brother jumped the curb to avoid that car. My brother is not a careless driver. He is always extra cautious out there. I hope you are extra cautious too. Bikes are danger/death machines. No protection around you like in a four wheeled vehicle.

    Radio Control Dukes cars

    I took these screengrabs from the first three episodes of season 1. It wasn't easy because the cars keep swapping between a '75 Monaco, a '70 Polara and a '75 Gran Fury mid-chase! As you can see, there were no fender decals on the '75 Monaco (or the other Georgia patrol cars). The side stripes appear to have been cut to accommodate the door decals, and the stripe on the back doors doesn't line up with the front doors or fenders. Finally, there is a "SHERIFF" decal between the rear lights. When I did my FanArt patrol cars, I used the font Compacta Bd stretched a bit to replicate the "HAZZARD COUNTY" and "SHERIFF" decals, but you may have a better match. I think mine were based on the later decals. I custom drew the "COUNTY SHERIFF" text in the badge. Obviously the decal positioning you use depends on whether you want to copy the '75 Monaco in the early episodes or go for the more generic look of the later episodes.

  43. I've made a lot of progress on Roscoe's car. I've got the whole body printed, and temporarily taped together. I made some decals and printed them on photo paper just so I could tape them to the body to check fitment & location. What do you guys think about the decal size & placement? Any adjustments that I should make?

    It looks like Bobbie Faye Ferguson died on June 25th of natural causes at the age of 78. I think the news of her death may have been delayed for a while. The Fox News article below actually refers to her as the "‘Dallas’ and ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ actress" in the title. There are some more recent pictures in the article. https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/bobbie-faye-ferguson-dallas-dukes-hazzard-actress-dead Here she is 'Coy vs. Vance':
