  2. I was driving to the race (I live in Collier County, bordering Miami-Dade) when he crashed. When we got into the stands at around 2:30, they announced "After the tragic loss of Rahal-Letterman driver Paul Dana in practice, the other two team cars have decided not to race out of respect for the Dana family." I was searching for an outlet for my need for speed after NASCAR started sucking, and I found it yesterday. In memory of Paul Dana, I will cheer for Rahal-Letterman Racing for the rest of the season.
  3. A green 1974 Plymouth RoadRunner roared around a corner into the main area of town. Leaving long black stripes on the ground, the driver pulled it into a parking space with expert precision. Out climbed long-haired rocker Duane Cooper, searching for a job after a few rather eventful weeks in Hazzard. Carrying his 1964 Gibson Firebird III electric guitar over his shoulder, he pulled a crumpled up note out from his pocket and stuck it on the town notice board with a thumbtack. The note read: "JOB NEEDED Male, age 29, seeks job. Any job will do. Good with electric systems, cars, musical ins
  4. Second favorite, since my favorite is "Free Bird": Tuesday's Gone Lynyrd Skynyrd Train roll on, on down the line, Won't you please take me far away? Now I feel the wind blow outside my door, Means I'm leaving my woman behind. Tuesday's gone with the wind. My woman's gone with the wind. And I don't know where I'm going. I just want to be left alone. Well, when this train ends I'll try again, But I'm leaving my woman at home. Tuesday's gone with the wind. Tuesday's gone with the wind. Tuesday's gone with the wind. My woman's gone with the wind. Train roll on many miles from my home,
  5. Several times during patrol car scenes, the show used stock footage. Which switched the standard '77 Monaco/'78 Fury to AMC Matadors in the middle of a chase.

  7. Part 2: PART TWO The Bird Still Flies February 3, 1985 Duane Cooper was on top of the world. His band, “The Firebirdsâ€, had been booked on a tour of the southern United States, and had struck a record deal with a small label called Thunder Records. Unfortunately, the band members still had to haul equipment in their own personal cars. Duane’s 1965 Coronet 440 hauled all three guitars that the band used—a modified Gibson Firebird V, Gibson Firebird VII, and a Gibson Firebird I. The rest of the equipment (Yamaha Electric Piano, Slingerland Double-Bass Drum Set, Gibson Thunderbird bass
  8. This is part one of two of my introduction fic for Duane Cooper, former roadie for Lynyrd Skynyrd. (NOTE: Although the character is fictional, the event described in the beginning is entirely real. I've reproduced it according to Gene Odom's first-hand account from on the plane.) ***** Cottonmouth Country By Alex Welch PART ONE Death on the Wings October 20, 1977 Duane Cooper was on top of the world. It was evening, October 20, 1977, his 21st birthday. He was celebrating in the Lynyrd Skynyrd charter plane, en route to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His friends (band members and other crew member
  9. (back with a new character! Was setting up my Skynyrd tribute band.)

  10. That truck is so awesome... You must have a lot of fun in that thing. I had an '85 Ram I bought from my cousin for $100 that he had trashed and was gonna fix it up like that. I sold it for $50 for parts.
  11. I just got a great idea for a fanfic story from that...
  12. The Dixie Challenger: They also made a non-flag version which came out the same time. I think Dixie Rose is a good name, or Rebel GT. (which is what I woulda called my fanfic car if it was a GT.)
  13. C'mon 43...get back where you were 30 years ago!
  14. Here's a picture of Jimmy! I must say, he bears a striking resemblance to Ronnie Van Zant. By the way, I'm changing Rebel to "FreeBird". Now I just need to edit the RoadRunner decals to where the 'Bird's holding an electric guitar.
  15. I took some videos of the last scene with the crash, but they're on the "other" computer. The one without internet. Nice picture. Two of my favorite drivers! Well, the son of Richard, at least.
