This is one summer sequel we saw coming from a mile away. After it was revealed that the incredible winning bid of $9,900,500 for John Schneider's original 1969 Dodge Charger "General Lee" was a dud, "Bo Duke" himself has relisted the car on eBay with a $1,000,000 $100,000 starting bid. This time, bidders have to preregister with Auction Wire, an online auction agency, before they can make a play for the car.

Amidst the media buzz surrounding Schneider's first failed auction for his General Lee, we learned that auctionistas actually valued the car somewhere around $200,000 to $300,000. Aside from being a completely kick-ass car with many aftermarket mods, the Charger's association with Schneider and the TV show certainly make it more valuable than a normal 1969 Charger.

Thanks for the tip, Keith!

      But why are they claiming that 100% of proceeds go to a charity...then at the bottom there is this disclaimer:

      "IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note that although the header states 100% of the final sale price will support Boone Center for the Family at Pepperdine University only 5% of the final bid price will be directed to the charity."

      I still don't understand why anyone would pay more than blue book value for this. It never appeared on the TV show.

      You would have to be a fan of the show, believe that the confederate flag is not offensive, and willing to live with paying too much for a car which only resembles the ones used on the show.

      For the Robocop fans out there, I own an '86 Taurus that is painted black and has extra lights glued to the roof. Starting bid is $30,000 (what a steal!!!!) Bid now and I'll stick on a few of those fake bullet holes.

      i wish people would actually READ before posting comments. especially nasty ones. the car did appear on the show. hence the scratch on the driver's side door from when john hopped into the general lee through the window.

      The auction starts at $100,000.

      I hope someone buys it for real this time.

      Thanks for the catch, jjpg2000. Been blogging at the speed of light today and misread the starting bid.
