Video of the Day: Good Ol’ Boy in ‘General Lee’ Dodge Charger Does Some Harm

By Jacob Brown | August 08, 2011
If nothing else can be said of The Dukes of Hazzard, the classic show about a family of moonshine runners outgunning the local sheriff in the south, it’s that it taught a generation or two that if there’s a car that can launch 50 feet in the air over the police, it’s a 1969 Dodge Charger. Known as the General Lee, the iconic car with a Confederate Flag painted across its top has inspired as many replicas as it has imitators of its physics-defying stunts. What viewers at home never saw during the show’s seven-year run was that the show went through almost 300 General Lees during filming. Physics weren't always defied, and accidents happened. The driver of the General Lee in the video below probably didn’t get that memo. Taking off with all cylinders pumping fast, the stunt driver in the video attempts to ramp a General Lee replica with less than desirable results. Watch below to see what happens.
