The Lawmen are Crooks, the Good Guys are Outlaws and Ever’body’s In-Laws!

We didn’t get ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ here in TLCB’s home nation, but we wish we had. After all, what’s not to like about a Dodge Charger jumping over  a river, a tractor, a train, a barn, a truck full of outhouses, a truck full of barrels… you get the idea.

Unfortunately this meant hundreds of ’69 Dodge Chargers – now incredibly valuable cars – were sacrificed in the name of entertainment, but they were a bit less valuable in the ’70s and ’80s.

Flickr’s Chris Radbone has put one back though, with his enormous Model Team recreation of the Duke Boys’ ’69 Dodge Charger ‘General Lee’, complete with working steering, a V8 engine, a 5-speed gearbox, and authentic ’01’ decals and flag-with-slightly-racist-connotations on the roof.

His near 8kg model also includes working suspension, so presumably he can jump it over various household obstacles in proper ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ fashion. Head to Chris’ photostream to join the good ‘ol boys!

Space Hazzard

Lego Classic Space Dodge Charger

This wonderful classic space Dodge Charger* is the collaborative work of Kristi and Cody at Custom Bricks and C3Brix respectively. Kristi has been hard at work knocking up some most excellent decals to decorate Cody’s Charger design. As well as the classic space iteration above, Kristi has liveried the most iconic Charger of them all, the Dukes of Hazard ‘General Lee’. Both cars can be found on Flickr – click the links above to see more.

*You won’t find us making a very poor taste space-related joke about Dodge’s other ’60s muscle car. Nope. We’re rising above it today.

Roscoe, Arrest Them Duke Boys!

Lego Dukes of Hazzard Dodge ChargerFor all the police chases, river jumps, car crashes and dodgy one-liners, the Dukes of Hazzard is really all about one thing; Daisy Duke’s hot pants. Thankfully Ralph Savelsberg has thought to recreate them as well as the Dodge Charger that they rode in. See more on Flickr. And then Google Daisy Duke.
