I saw the auction on ebay. I couldn't afford the car but I did buy a copy of the movie that he was promoting in the ebay ad. So I guess it's not all bad news for John. http://www.classicpowercars.com
Dukes of Hazzard 'General Lee' ebay Escape
We heard that we have one upset puppy in Dukes of Hazard star John Schneider. Schneider had purchased the famous "General Lee" after production of the show, The Dukes of Hazard, ended in the mid '80s, and used it in a movie he starred in called "Collier & Co. -- Hot Pursuit". Schneider wants to make a sequel so he put the modified Dodge Charger on the auction block. A collector purchased the car on an eBay auction bid of $9.9 million. However, said winner never paid the first deposit, nixing the deal. Schneider has filed a "failure to pay" complaint with eBay, and he is meeting with lawyers to discuss legal action. Our take? Almost sounds like an episode of The Dukes of Hazard. So stay tuned. Editor's Note: Per switched, Schneider has put the Lee back on the block. Let's hope the next bidder will play for keeps.
