    I've wondered that too. You would think that Ford would be happy to have their name displayed. You would think that Ford would pay them just to get advertising. It seems odd that they would have had to pay Ford but I suspect you are right and that's the way things were. Maybe Chevrolet and/or Mopar had commercials on during the show and they demanded Ford be covered.....probably not.....I'm just shooting at the hip. 

    Product placement may not have worked as it does today, lol... Perhaps they thought that a ford being made without stop running by the police would make them bad publicity... maybe ford or plymouth didn't supply them with enough parts or car so out of revenge they hid the brands

    It's pretty much the same in Ireland. There are/were only a couple of model stores, but all of my Dukes cars came from the US. Luckily, I was able to buy most of my collection when the exchange rate was much better, and the post office only caught me for duty (import tax) on a couple of them!

    I forget the taxes, lol... For two Plymouth Fury 1/18 I payed 45€ taxes and 75€ shipping, if I remember correctly, it's crazy... I'm ruined, lol...

    Love the cars! Welcome to Hazzard County wotan. Do you have more? Tell us more about your love of Hazzard. Do you have a favorite character, scene or episode? We're happy to have you here and hope you stay a long time. 

    Sorry i didn't see your question... My Favorite Character is Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane... I'm Fan of Dukes of Hazzard since 30 years... I had never seen the 2 end of series TV movies until then, I only saw them this year because they never came out in France, so I had to order the DVD in the US... My favorite car is Dodge Monaco 1977 and of course General Lee...

  4. In France, nothing has ever been done around "Dukes of Hazzard", so since the internet advent of Autoworld and Greenlight or Neo, I built my collection ... What costs me dearly are the shipping costs by plane because my collection comes from the US (one vehicle scale 1/43 , 25€ shipping, one vehicle 1/18, 45€ shipping) ... Because in France no store distributes them ... There is only one Belgian site, but it does not have them all ... So what already existed for you in the US was not valid for us in France, which is a shame for the French Fans of this series, because we missed a large part of the Dukes of Hazzard collection (old collections now are overpriced) ... So I'm trying to catch up now, lol .

    Since my 8 years I am a Dukes of Hazzard fan, now, I have 43 ... It is only 1 year since I can realize my dream of owning the cars of my cult series, so I do not look at the expense, I all want. My dream is slowly taking shape. Tomorrow I get the Uncle Jesse Ford F-100 , I'm so happy.

    I have 1:18 scale models of the General Lee, Rosco’s patrol car, Uncle Jesse’s truck, and Daisy’s yellow Plymouth Satellite. I’ll probably eventually get her “golden eagle” Dixie Jeep...but never cared much for it (loved the Roadrunner & Satellite way better). So it’ll probably be one of the last ones I get. 

    the satellite is currently untraceable or overpriced, but I hope to find it one day...

    I’m not positive...but I think a 1:18 scale of Sheriff Little’s car has now been released—which was actually a 1975 Fury. But awesome job of turning the 77 Fury into a Chickasaw car! I too have the old 74 Dodge Monaco Hazzard County cop car put out by Joyride years ago (which was found to be the wrong year than what was used in the show). I think a “corrected” model was later put out, which was a 1975 Monaco, but not 100% positive on that—or is that one the 75? But I also now have the 1977 Fury as Rosco’s car—the most accurate from the show & I love it! 

    Receveid today, Plymouth Fury 75 - Greenlight scale 1/18... Now this is the real one, lol


  7. thank you very much for welcoming me to you!

    I feel like I'm going back to a family...

    When now in France you talk about Dukes of Hazzard, nobody knows, it's too old ... I feel lonely sometimes, lol ...

    Now apart from their walking dead, their game of throne, we hear that talk about it ... But series with a soul fade away, fall into oblivion ... It's a shame, because Dukes of Hazzard had a real soul ... That young people today do not understand ...

    Hazzard is the imaginary county of true freedom, which in France, believe me is lost ... The last bastion of men (and women) free ... Some in France take offense to the name of the car General Lee or the Confederate flag, I'm sending them back to real history books ... books or it's not quite the same story they're learning at school ... or the meaning of the Confederate flag was a sign of insubordination to the northern states and unrelated to slavery ... A sign of simply freedom ...

    So, I pass for an old idiot constantly watching this series, but I know what it represents in my eyes ... My race to freedom!

    This series is everything for me, it evaded me from a sad youth to die, or the beginning of my life was not terrible ... In short, this series calmed my anguish, I grew up with her .. Although she is on the tone of humor, she was a symbol to me ...
    I like this series, more than any other ...
