The General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard is without a doubt the most recognizable TV and movie car the world has ever known. From the late 1970’s to the mid-1980’s the orange 1969 Dodge Charger with the confederate flag on the roof would outrun the law countless times and save Bo and Luke Duke from the crooked clutches of Boss Hog and Rosco P. Coltrane. It’s an icon in the annals of American pop culture and loved by folks ranging in age from six to sixty. The second generation Dodge Chargers that were built from 1968-1970 are considered to be some of the most beautiful muscle cars ever to come out of Detroit. Their iconic coke bottle shape still looks as good today as it did 43 years ago. For that reason it seems only fitting that the guys at Edmunds Inside Line have seen fit to match the ’69 version up against Dodge’s newest second generation 2011 Charger R/T.
