Random notes - items for sale, bicycles, and Sam's new patrol car

Hazzard Homecoming was such a great event.  I made several new friends both online and in the real world. Tim, Gloria, Ken, Gary, Gary, Ken, Donald, Steve, Randall, Tony and everyone who has checked in and shared some nice words, I appreciate it.  I really love meeting so many Dukes fans through this blog.

Collector Gary Repcik asked me to share some Dukes items he has for sale.  A lot of his items are autographed and look to be in great condition.  I am putting up a few pictures, but he has a lot more items.  He can be reached at

Our friend from across the pond, James Fisher, shared this cool birthday card he recently picked up.  It's a mix between the General Lee and the Starsky and Hutch Torino.  Love when companies show love for the Dukes.  Thanks for sending it James.

Thanks to my post about the new DK General Lee BMX bicycle, I had a cool conversation with Jesse who works at DK.  He told me that he liked the post and gave me a little history about the Bike.  The original was released over ten years ago and was built for jumping.  They wanted to associate it with the best known jump vehicle, so they named it General Lee.  Good choice.  He said they have released several variations of the General Lee including this 12" bike from a few years ago.  I'll have to start searching for one of these.  Thanks Jesse.

Our pal Sam aka Driftlee has been busy lately.  He recently started a blog about collecting 1/64 cars.  Check out 64 Wheels to see his nearly overwhelming amount of Hot Wheels, Matchbox, and Ertls.  And he recently bought this bad boy:

That ain't no 1/64.  Sam is now a Hazzard car owner.  You punk, you did it before me.  I can't wait to see this car for myself.  

The car looks to be in great condition, and comes from a well known Dukes car builder.

I couldn't be happier for you Sam.  I know you love those Monacos.  Now you have to go to some Dukes events with me.

    1. Yep, it's something totally original that I came up with.

  2. Yes I notice that they left the Flag emblem off of the "paper-craft car...So a few "Narrow-minded A**Holes" can ruin things for everyone else...

  3. I think I was in contact this week with the same Jesse at DK that you talked to! I bought a General Lee from Wal-Mart and the GENERAL LEE text was scratched off of one side and the rear wheel bearing/free wheel was messed up. But Jesse came through with flying colors and got me a new rear wheel and decals! They are awesome over there at DK!

    I'll have to get you more pictures of the patrol car now that I have the black walls out and the light bar with the red on the correct side!
