Are General Lee replicas anything new? No. Are they cool-as-all-get-out? Yes. And such is the case with the one you see above. An intrepid tipster forwarded us the link to this eBay baby, and we promptly began digging under the sofa cushions at Autoblog central command to see if we could scratch together the 17 grand or so that we'll need to at least get in on the action.

General Lee replicaThe car pictured is a '69 Charger R/T with a 440 that looks clean enough to eat off of under its long hood. In addition to the full General Lee paint and graphics, it has the the proper push bar, CB radio, and Dixie horns. Unlike the Duke boys, you don't need to jump in and out of the windows of this General -- the doors actually work. We so want this.

Thanks for the tip, Eric!

      Glad to see 8's very offensive anti-American comment is now gone. San Francisco is a very UnAmerican city so I'll never set foot in it and I'll discourage anyone else from doing so.

      Years ago when I was attending UC Santa Barbara, there was somebody running around Lompoc (just north of Santa Barbara) with a circa 1979 Toyota Corolla SR5 (http://www.tolis.ch/toyo_modelle/1979_corolla_sr.jpg) done up in full General Lee livery. Orange paint? Check. Confederate Flag? Check. Push bar? Check. The only real visual difference (besides the fact that it was a freaking Corolla) was that they had Panasport-style rims on it (http://www.wheelspecs.com/specs/images/WheelModels/panasport_fc.png) similar to what people put on old Datsun 510s and 70s Celicas. Probably because American Racing never put out the Turbine-style rims from the General Lee in a small enough size for the Corolla. Still, it was funny as hell. Too bad camera phones weren't around back then.

      You know, this car might be fun in San Francisco. Then again, after yo umake it accelerate, you might have to make it turn or stop and there, as with all muscle cars from this period, is where the fun ends.

      Actually the previous 8's. Since mine is eight now..... JG Herzit or whatever that bozo's name was.

      I'm waiting for Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to complain.

      Tourism isn't thriving there nice try though. Everyone knows what the deal is in SF, normal people not wanted freaks absolutely wanted. Bullitt was filmed there but sadly it's not a normal place anymore. Most of the people I know wouldn't go there anyway. I love the south and I love the east coast.

      I still do not understand what is Patriotic about a flag that represents those, "who would rather own slaves than be American." As opposed to the city of San Francisco, which contributes more in taxes to the support of the US than both Alabama and Mississippi?

      there was a surge in the number of these as the latest version of dukes of hazzard came out...

      I'd buy it. I'd repaint it and change the horn, though....

      Oh Baby, it's the Bars and Stars!!

      No underbody shots though. I wonder how many times he's jumped it over the river? :-)

      RE: #8: "San Francisco is a very UnAmerican city so I'll never set foot in it and I'll discourage anyone else from doing so."
      ========================================
      Yes, San Francisco neither looks nor acts like a typical American city. And yes, San Francisco is run by nitwit leftists who don't understand Economics 101.

      But San Francisco is still a great AMERICAN city. If you don't want to set foot in it, then don't. And as much as you try to discourage others from visiting here, your efforts will be wasted because tourism is and will continue to thrive here--largely because we're different from the fly-over burgs in which you find comfort.

      But if you decide you DO want to visit here, you'd be welcome despite your rant. That's one of things that makes us different.
