I did some growing up when the Dukes was on and liked the show. I was worried that the movie coming out was going to butcher the origianal series. I watched the trailer and it looks like they might pull it off.

Any other Duke fans?

Speaking of that AJ, I saw a special one time that said that it took an aveage of 13 General Lees to make one episode.... now that is alot of destroyed cars..... But my favorite is the intro when they jump the dirt ramp in town and they show the car landing and you can see the front end just buckle like crazy and try to fold over like a taco!!!! I mean yeah that is a cool car to take all that abuse....Wonder how many kids went out and said, my car can do that!!!!!!

:scared: :scared: :scared: :scared:

I read that they went through about 26 cars to make the movie. They did a lot of repair work on them so they could be used over and over.

I heard the original show went through about 300 cars!
