    Loved Dukes so much I bought a '68 Charger!

    I liked this show so much, at the time, that I even bought a 68' Charger as my first "real" car (in 1980 or 81). There's was a 69' I believe. I installed a Dixie horn (w/5 airhorns you could hear a mile away). Daisy was smokin, the action was hot and mischievous. I really liked the stunts (common for that era) the balance that was maintained between "cat and mouse" and cohesiveness of the characters ("cops and robbers" games they played). Some people look back at the show as "politically incorrect," because of the rebel flag, etc. I say, lighten up - and focus on a real issue. They were "the good ol' boys." This was the era when actors made a crack at singing, looked good, etc (you got the whole package). Girls oogled over the guys, guys were smitten over daisy - and admired the guys and their cool care. Still think about that car - even though mine was rought with problems. It was "badass"!!!
