  1. I don't think I've visited either of those sites. www.hazzardonline.com still appears to be available, but there's no trace of www.dukefarm.com. I know of a few other Dukes sites that are still running, but I can also name some that have disappeared over the past decade. HazzardNet may well be the only remaining Dukes forum after cglfc.com shut down about five years ago. I never joined cglfc.com, but I did read posts there from time to time. At the end of the day, it costs money to keep places like HazzardNet alive. We should be thankful that our Supreme Superior Commander is such a dedic

  2. Hey everyone. I'm Dani and I'm new here and am a huge fan of the Dukes Of Hazzard. I'm a country gal and proud of it. I own every single season of the Dukes Of Hazzard and recently began rewatching it from the beginning of the series. My favorite Duke is Bo Duke and I love John Schneider. I'm currently working on saving money to buy myself a horse. Some of the things I like doing are working with my grandpa out on the farm, horseback riding, reading, writing fan fiction, roleplaying, watching tv and much more. I love making new friends so if you'd like to get to know me better

  3. In Hazzard, the more things change, the more they stay the same. This is also true at Cooter's Place in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. About a year ago, Cooter's in Gatlinburg relocated to nearby Pigeon Forge due to unforseen circumstances. The new location does not have the 'familily fun center' gocarts and indoor mini golf. However, the new store brings opportunities to build new fun experiences for Dukes fans to enjoy. In addition to easier access and expanded room for events and more cool Hazzard merchandise and collectibles, we are now buiding in the famiilar setting of the Hazzard Garage.

    Hazzard Square

    At least Boss' house is still standing. The houses after it, including the haunted house from 'The Hazzardville Horror', have been replaced by newer buildings. Considering LA's liking for redevelopment, the remaining houses on Hazzard Square must be among the oldest in the area .

    There seems to be a trend here to post stuff that is a little bit edgy. That's no surprise since the world seems to have gone crazy. Since I have been part of the problem I really am not worthy of acting like Uncle Jesse and getting everybody back it line with a gruff authoritarian voice so I won't...... but I will say this: While I may be tempted in the future to post stuff that displays my anger about insane current events I will not anymore. This website is one of my favorite things in the world and I don't want to ruin it by being part of the problem. From this point forward I pledge to re

  7. Well, unfortunately I'm totally ditching the engine....finally the evidence was overwhelming that I needed to go with the smaller-block engine, finished in blue. So I purchased the engine parts from the AMT Duster. Starting over. In the meantime, here's what happened with the interior. Two modifications to be made: the steering wheel and the air vents. In one episode (Gold Fever S2E2) the instrument panel is visible, showing the dashboard to be the style with two air conditioning vents. I discovered this after I'd started painting, so, strip the paint, add the parts and start

  8. Found a great one while researching Daisy's Plymouth. From that car's final chase leading up to its destruction at Kissing Cliff, they recycled the same shot but reversed it. I first noticed it by noticing the same body damage (rear fender above the wheel) on both sides. When I slowed it down frame-by-frame, I was shocked to see it was the EXACT SAME FOOTAGE but reversed...and that I'd never had a clue! First time we see it is the reversed footage. You can see on the supposed driver's side what is Luke's arm casually on the window ledge, gripping the roof...on what is actu

  9. One more for today. For the filming, all identification logos/scripts on the vehicles were removed (i.e. all the "Charger" logos, the "FORD" from above the grill and tailgate on Jesse's truck, "PLYMOUTH" and "DODGE" from the Sheriff cars, etc). Most of this is easy for Daisy's Plymouth, except for the grill and in front of the hood. We'll deal with the grill later. For the removed emblem in front of the hood, there is a recessed area that was left untouched once the emblems were removed, and then painted over. I tried removing the bit inside the recessed cir

  11. Not really a blooper, but an oddity. When Bo and Luke borrow Cooter's pickup near the end of 'People's Choice', Cooter says, "Do me a favor. Put a couple of dollars' worth of gas in there." Coooter was just leaving his garage where the town's gas pumps are located, so if it was low on gas, why didn't he put some in the tank?

  14. 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.

He knows you’re an early bird, and with him being a worm, he plans on catching you.” (S5E19 "Welcome Back Bo 'N Luke")

First the tow rig has six small rounded-rectangular position lights. To make them all as uniform as possible I made a master shape from styrene, then made impressions of it in moldmaking material. I made a lot of extras since I wanted a lot to choose from, and would only take the best 6. This ended up being a very wise move. Clear resin was poured into the mold impressions and thank God there were 6 decent ones to use from the resulting blob. They h

Still needed some cleaning up, and the finish redone in Alclad Stainless Steel (although Polished Aluminum perhaps might have been a better choice). License plate was made by cutting a piece of aluminum turkey roasting pan to match the size of the license plate decal. Now for the rear view mirrors.

To answer the inevitable question, its made from printed designes mounted to foam core and assembled with hot glue. (cat inserted for scale)

    A episode of the current season of the UK TV show QI put forward the following: When the Vikings invaded in the 11th century, English women found them attractive because they washed more often than the native British men. The Vikings tended to come without women, so they married English women, upsetting the locals. One monk, John of Wallingford, claimed that Danes cheated by washing. He wrote: "The Danes made themselves too acceptable to English women by their elegant manners and their care of their person.

    The shows that get on-screen warnings for non-PC content seem pretty random too. I've mentioned that the UK channel currently showing Dukes includes a warning at the start, but I don't think they include one with CHiPs, which is from the same era. Another of their shows, an innocuous British sitcom from the late-80s/early-90s, also gets a warning (I'll have to see it again to check the message). The show is based around a man in his 50s dating someone half his age, but I can't see what content might be offensive. I'm considered old-fashioned these days because I'm still adding to my DVD c

  33. There's a great way to start the new year in the UK and Ireland - Forces TV will be repeating Dukes from the beginning on weekend mornings. They're starting with a double bill of 'One Armed Bandits' and 'Daisy's Song' at 10:30 on Saturday 2nd January, and then they're showing the other three Georgia episodes back-to-back on Sunday 3rd starting at 10:05. Both are followed by a double helping of 'CHiPs'! There's no word on whether they've got the rights to seasons 4-7, but they're already being asked about on the Forces TV Facebook page.

If this was like the rest of the South, you and your preconceived ideas about us would be right! One of the jobs I got with my big fine college education, was as a janitor at the local middle school. The vice principal, with a masters degree in Sociology, told me to put up this sign , " Fall Registeration will be......." I said, you want me to put this up just like you wrote it? She says, yes, why not? I said it's Registration, the noun, NOT register ( ation???) which is a verb!

  37. It's funny how some shows have a big finale and others just finish. M*A*S*H and Cheers have the highest US ratings for their last shows, but I didn't expect Magnum to come in a #5 (see this list). I can think of a couple of UK TV shows that didn't have a definitive ending, which always leaves the door open for another season or Christmas special. UK shows tend to have much shorter seasons compared to shows in the US, but often get an extended episode at Christmas which may or may not be part of the current season.

  38. Intelligent alien life is a certainty so I'm going to draw the conclusion that Strange Visitor to Hazzard is most realistic episode in all 7 years of the series. The only thing that wasn't realistic is when L'il Cousin shot the pistol out of Buck's hand by shooting it with his laser beam eyes. Everybody knows that when an alien's laser beam eyes hit a pistol it makes more sparks than that. This was an embarrassing mistake by the writers.....worst blooper ever. Seriously though, I know what you mean Hobie. I actually enjoyed it a lot this time because I gave myself a little talk and told

A simple life, small town, work the farm and grow most of your food and then sell stuff you raise or grow, to buy the rest. This is one of the reasons I love DOH and why I like to " Go to Hazzard " everyday and when I'm waiting in line or around people I don't like, I go to HIMM ( Hazzard In My Mind). Let's face it, in Hazzard, they've got problems, people die etc. but ...well....in Hazzard, it only gets just SO bad.....and no more!

    Thanks Hobie. I am a very politically active person. I've had several quotes on CNN (the old Jack Cafferty show) and CNBC, several letters in USA Today, a thousand letters in local newspapers the past 40 years and have also been active politically on other forums but there is a time and place for all that and it's not here....even though I'll agree that those fights need to be fought. As important as politics can be it can also be corrosive in certain settings and I have so much love for Hazzard County, the HazzardNet and the HN Family I would do anything to keep our family together.

    The daylight scheduled Dixie Vodka 400 at Homestead turned into a night race after several weather delays. Denny Hamlin dominated the race winning both stages and of course the race. Tyler Reddick though is the one that stole the show in my opinion. He fought for the lead several times once he made his way from 24th and ended up finishing 4th. Chase Elliot finished 2nd, Ryan Blaney 3rd and Aric Almirola rounded out the top 5. Tyler's RCR teammate Austin Dillon finished 7th. Jimmie Johnson did not have a good race, started 9th and quickly dropped to the 20's and ended up finishing 16th. Da
