Very interesting... I cant believe someone found that wreck sitting out there in the middle of the woods.
That somebody is a member here, Tom Hendricks, although if I am not mistaken I thought he sold it now.

It's amazing how many Chargers they wrecked and crushed filming the show.
Glad they didn't pick a Chevelle to be the General. :D

There was one episode where the General was to race a bog block '69. They did wreck a couple in that episode if I remember correctly.

ruining classics for movie purposes....needs to be outlawed, at first I had some doubt that they would REALLY just leave them there to rot....but hey, it's Hollywood and they don't care.
It was a 9-year old used car in 1978... That would be like wrecking a whole bunch of 1998 cars today, no big deal.

Lee #1's restoration was completed late October of last year, I've been following it on some of the General Lee fan sites. I was very close to driving down to Covington, GA to see it's unveiling on November 4th, 2006. That car still has it's original engine from the show.

yeah to bad the writter of the story doesnt even know who sang the theme song. Johnny Cash i dont think so!!!!
If you watch the videos on that link, there is a song Johnny Cash is singing and it's about a Charger. Bo and Luke are in the General Lee and JC is singing; 3rd video down.

That is too cool. That was my favorite show growing up as a kid. I think every 12 year old wanted a general lee growing up
