Off the Air With Jeremy: Looking for the General Lee
Cue the Dixie horn, baby!
I am a child of the ’80s, so like many others, I grew up with the Duke boys, Bo and Luke. But I’m not sure other people who watched ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ are as obsessed with the star of the show as I am.
Yes, Daisy was the woman on the show with the legs that those short shorts made look even better. But I’m not talking about Ms. Duke — I’m talking about the General Lee!
I am absolutely obsessed — and always have been — with the 1969 Dodge Charger! Do any of you have one? Do you know anybody who has one? I simply have to own a General Lee before I die, although I know — thanks to producer Todd — that there is no way I could get through the window like the Duke boys did. Ha! I might have to go on a salad diet, just in case you know someone who owns one and is willing to let me take it for a spin!
I guess for now I just have to keep on dreaming.
