Give me liberty or give me death

Post by MrSmith » Wed Feb 06, 2013 6:25 am

Was watching this episode tonight and noticed this bright ornage Dodge Charger, it reminded me of the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard

Do you think that it is just a coincidence or maybe a left over car from the Dukes?

I believe at the time this episode aired, they were billing it as KR vs Dukes....

I think that poster was created as part of the hype. If you can't see it then scroll to the middle.

I once heard that car was inserted in the show to emphasize the fact Knight Rider was getting higher rates than DOH at that very time. They were parodying the Dukes and their car although they didn't say it litterally (the Moonshine hint is very obvious though). :P

This pthread reminded me of a pic I found a long time ago when I merged my collection with Richie Levines.
