wrenching, hilarious snafus, and cameo appearances by the Macho Grande from
episode 8, the '66 Buick Special convertible from a pre-Roadkill episode,
the ramp truck from episode 20, and the Fury from episode 22. Enjoy the

Charger Steve's General Lee Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip 12-1-2012
Charger Steves movie car drag racing at barona drag strip on the 1/8 mile
Charger Steve acquired his real 1969 dodge charger General Lee in 2007.
After the Dukes of Hazzard series ended in the mid-80's only 17 Generals
remained. These were soon sold off and 17 certificates / letters signed by
Frank Mejerski of Warner Brothers accompanied each vehicle proving their
After a few short years, Warner Brothers began working on a couple Dukes of
Hazzard TV movies and several more General Lee's were produced by WB.
Steve's General Lee was used as a hero car during the filming of these TV
movies starring the original cast, including John Schneider, Tom Wopat and
fter filming these movies during the 90's, four Generals remained (one of
which we believe to be John Schneider's famous Lee that was sold at Barrett
Jackson in 2008 that he referred to as "Bo's General Lee") and the last
three sat patiently at Warner Brothers until 2003 when restoration began
One of these remaining three Lee's lost its battle with cancer while
hibernating and was turned into a "buck" (a non running prop used for close
ups -- this car was labeled #4). The remaining 2 vehicles (referred to as
#2 and #3 became the start of a new fleet of more than 30 General Lee's
used in the 2005 movie.
Steve's General was labeled car #3 and became the first ever Remote Drive
Vehicle (RDV) ever built. Eventually a second remote vehicle #13 would be
created, but #3 was used extensively during filming as #13 would eventually
brake down mid production after accidently catching air on a bump
These 2005 screen used General Lee's are described in detail in the August
2005 issue of the Mopar Collector's Guide. Detailed information on the
Remote Drive Vehicles is described in the September issue as well. These
amazing vehicles were designed by Warner Brothers masterminds that created
a roof driven vehicle. Every aspect including steering, braking and
acceleration were all controlled by a stunt driver located on the roof of
these intricate and extremely expensive vehicles. These designs would prove
to be the MOST EXPENSIVE SCREEN USED GENERAL LEES EVER BUILT!
Accompanying Steve's General Lee is a certificate / letter signed by Frank
Mejerski of Warner Brothers making his General Lee only the eighteenth with
this claim and Steve's General Lee is one of only 20 Generals left in the
world that were used on screen by the original Dukes of Hazzard cast and
crew. Steve's #3 is one of only 2 Generals to be used by both the original
cast and the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard movie cast.
THIS IS A RARE PIECE OF HOLLYWOOD ROYALTY!
This car has to be worth something.

1968 Charger / 1969 Daytona - /BIG MUSCLE Garage
The 1968 Dodge Charger and the 1969 Dodge Daytona. Two cars based off the
same platform with very different personalities. These two old sleds are
different though, 'cause well, they belong to me (your host) and they're
the reason that BIG MUSCLE exists today. These are not show ponies,
cruisers or weekend projects, but two warhorses that have been run in some
of the toughest long distance and performance events in the United States.
Built for reliability, power and performance, they are not technological
marvels, but old school resto-mods that have been updated for one reason
and one reason only - to put smiles on the faces of all those who see them.
Dodge Charger 1968 blown hemi
this is Nick suckow's car in September 2008 before it was stolen. If you
have any information about this dodge charger please let me know.
http://www.weau.com/home/headlines/33732019.html# Back in 1984,
high-schooler Nick Suckow bought himself a '68 Dodge Charger. He was gonna
fix it up and roar down the road. Nick was born a gearhead. A hot rod. From
the first time he drove, he drove hard. The redline was always at hand.
When he joined the Army out of high school and shipped to Germany he got
hooked on the autobahn, where you could ease over to the left lane, stomp
the foot-feed flat, and shoot, they just let you go. "Fast," Nick likes to
say, "isn't the same as reckless." All that racing around, and then life
served up a grim little joke: The day Nick Suckow wrecked - the day his
life changed forever, the last day he ever stood on his own two feet - he
was going 35 miles per hour with his seatbelt on. He'd been married two
weeks. He and his wife were on their way home from their Wisconsin
honeymoon, making the run back to Texas in Nick's Gran Prix. They were
towing a rusted-out Ford Bronco - Nick always had his eye out for a cheap
beater, and he had found one up north. On a rough stretch of road Nick
crawled in the Bronco to keep it straight. The front tire hooked a pothole.
The tie rod snapped. The seat belt broke. He landed in the ditch. The
Bronco landed on his neck. Nick says he remembers the sun in his eyes. Then
the darkness closing in. A lot of years, then. Hospitals. Home. Hospitals.
The marriage ended. Back to Wisconsin. Rehab, and more hospitals. The speed
demon, not going anywhere fast. But eventually he had them drag that
Charger out. Arranged to get it in the shop. Whenever he had a little
money, he'd get some work done. "They whittled away at it," he says. "I
told my mom, if I die, dump my ashes in the fuel tank, and I'll go down the
drag strip one last time." Seventeen years. Seventeen years of learning how
to live from the neck up. Seventeen years of whittling. Hed show you the
latest pictures - a quarter panel here, a shot of primer there, a couple
tires. He'd get down to the shop, supervise in person when he could. He
couldn't run the wrenches, but he could run the show. He'd sneak out for a
little speed fix sometimes - once a paraplegic friend strapped Nick's chair
to a motorcycle sidecar and they blew down the road, one good pair of arms
between'em. Nick says it was good to feel the wind on his face. On a sunny
day in October of 2006, Nick Suckow's pals helped him slide from one set of
wheels into another. They strapped him in the passenger side, and you could
see the anticipation on his face, even behind the mirrored shades. The car
cruised out of the lot, and then picked up speed, the blower making a Mad
Max whine as the wheels warmed to the road. After a nice easy ride, the
Charger pulled to a stop on an isolated little stretch of blacktop. There
was a quiet moment, before the driver wound that 426 fuel-injected blown
Hemi up tight. Then Nick Suckow gave the nod and went fishtailing down the
blacktop on a journey that had never really ended.
