This “General Lee” was the #1 stand-by car and used for promotion and exhibition with John Schneider, Tom Wopat (Luke Duke) and George Barris. It can also be seen in the video and DVD by Kid Rock.

One of the most famous cars in television history, “The General Lee” tore across prime time for seven years. “The General Lee” was, in fact, one of the main stars of the series, with its trademark long jumps and close and convoluted escapes from the law. Set in Georgia, the “Duke” boys were a pair of Robin Hood characters in constant conflict with ‘Boss’ Hogg and his bumbling sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane. And who can forget Catherine Bach as Daisy Duke? The Dukes of Hazzard has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity through syndication, and two, made for television movies. There are literally hundreds of websites devoted both to the show and specifically to "The General Lee.” Warner Brothers new feature film based on the series, and starring Johnny Knoxville, Sean William Scott, Jessica Simpson, Burt Reynolds and Willie Nelson is slated for release June 24, 2005 which, by the way, will roughly coincide with ‘Dukefest 2005’ a fan convention held in June in Bristol, Tennessee.
