the general lee was cool enough when i was a kid but now would come off as too redneck-y (especially with the confederate flag on the top). the coolest car from my youth was the starsky and hutch ford gran torino- that cherry red muscle car with the white swoosh racing stripe down the side. what i find funny now is that starsky and hutch were undercover cops...how could you NOT spot that car from a mile away if you were a criminal?!?! ahh, the magic of hollywood and tv...

It's such a great car, and it is funny, but I couldn't get past the flag. I wouldn't be able to get in.

Now, if a date turned up in a Vanishing Point Challenger... be still, my heart!

If someone tried to pick me up with anything with a rebel flag on it, i'd laugh in his face so hard i'd likely have to excuse myself to the restroom, make some "redneck" comment and walk away quickly. That sort of thing does NOT impress me in the least.
Now if a guy was to gun the engine in a classic muscle car SANS any offensive advertisements, i'd be hard pressed to not jump right in, lol.

There is actually an annual General Lee convention somewhere- the point being that there are enough people with General Lees to hold a convention. LOL.

I was a big Dukes of Hazzard fan as a child. Even now I get weak hearing that opening guitar....

BUT, I didn't know what the confederate flag stood for in those days. It would be a big turnoff if a guy had that on his car in 2009.

I know this is a big time thread resurrection, but I am probably one of the only people that has joined this site that can comment on it as I have a General Lee Dodge Charger.

It would depend on the circumstances. There are women that I meet via the car (renting it for events) and if they expressed they thought it would be cool, then what the hell. BTW, the going in through the windows was just an act. My car just like the ones on TV has operational doors.

But otherwise, it a hobby that is outside that part of my life. That is kind of odd as most GL owners that have them tend to incorporate that into their identity in some way (think redneck versions of Trekkies). Me, I don't even want my picture taken with it.

I wish I really liked something less "redneck". But this is the car that does it for me. It has since I was a kid. I could have saved a pile of money if I was into tuner stuff.

what would be your reaction if your date showed up with The General Lee?


I'd ask him if he would marry me and be the father of my babies

I'd love it! The General Lee is awesome. Gawd did I have a crush of John Schneider when I was a little girl

Simply meeting a girl who knew about the "Vanishing Point Challenger" would be a real turn on for me.

He is a nice guy. I have done a couple events with him. The first time he needed a General Lee for a Saint Judes Childrens Hospital charity auction. So we set one up so he could display the stuff that was being offered for the charity sale. I watched him sit there and patiently sign fans autographs for nearly 5 hours. He sat there and signed everything until every fan got what they wanted signed. Then he invited me to join him for a steak dinner. He is a real class act.

yes also the fact that it had a 3-speed automatic transmission but on the soundtrack it sounded like a 16-speed manual, (maybe taken from a Kenworth?) ..shifting gears every 2 seconds..

must be from the same place where 6-shot revolvers can fire 40 rounds or submachineguns fire 500, all without any reloads

Well I would think it was cheezy, but I would know in an instant, that this person knows how to have fun. I would definitely go out with this person though, just to see what they were like.
I might even be able to wrestle up something comparable to daisy dukes, you just never know. :)
If they had a redneck attitude to go with it though, the date would be very short.

Hey, you like the "dark" Brother Gibb. I can respect that

No redneck attitude here. Most GL owners are actually not the stereotype. It is an expensive thing to pull off and most with the attitude have ones broken down and rusting away in their yard they plan on fixing "someday". I was just like most kids of that era that loved watching that car and wanted to have one. When I got older I tracked down the Charger I used to see from the school bus, restored it and made it a GL like I daydreamed about every day for most of my elementary school years.

The General Lee was cool, but I liked the Power Wagon from Simon & Simon a lot more. That thing was BAAAAD !! Jacked up, flat paint job, and a massive push-bumper !!! That thing meant business!!
