'Just the good ol' boys, never meanin' no harm, beats all you've ever saw...' If you're old enough and geeky enough to remember that song, you'll know that the real star of the Dukes of Hazzard wasn't Bo, Luke, Flash the dog or even Daisy's perfectly formed...erm, jeep. No, the star of this so-bad-it-was-brilliant slice of 80s TV was the good ol' General Lee.
Always one step ahead of Sheriff Rosco
Seemingly indestructible, this souped-up 1969 Dodge Charger roared its way through each goofball episode (and the frankly disappointing 2005 movie) like grits through a goose. It could even leap through the air every time it hit a bump. And now, thanks to your Lost Sheep-lovin' buddies here at the Firebox ranch, you can yee-haa your way across the county in this fully-functioning, R/C version of one of rubbish TV's greatest vehicles.
The General Lee R/C Car is an exact replica of the fantastically orangey ve-hi-cle driven by them pesky Duke boys in the TV show and movie. Ready to run, this beautifully-built car travels forwards, backwards, left and right, and boasts a nifty 'turbo-boost' function so you can outrun Enos, Cletus or any other suggestively named deputy sheriff. It even has working headlights so you can run moonshine into Chickasaw County after dark.
Of course the General wouldn't be the General without those ear-splitting airhorns, heck no! Simply press a button on the handheld transmitter and you'll hear that famous Dixie ditty plus a hearty 'Yeee-haaa!' It's just like being in Hazzard County. In fact you can almost hear Rosco P. Coltrane saying 'I'm gonna cuff ya an' stuff ya! Ghkuu-ku-ku!' every time you break the speed limit.
"Dixie horn" and "Yeeeehaaaa!" sound effects at the touch of a button
Whether you're a longstanding Dukes of Hazzard aficionado or a fan of the movie (well there must be a few), the General Lee R/C Car is one of the purdiest replicas we ever did see. We guarantee you'll be unable to stop speaking in hayseed slang every time you go for a spin. You can even dress up like one of them Dukes and pretend you're foiling one of Boss Hogg's dastardly schemes. It's fun, but boy, do those hotpants chafe. Yeeeee-haaaaa!
