TV-movie cars seen & model layouts

Post by knightfan26917 on Wed May 20, 2015 7:21 am

Cool seeing TV & movie cars in the wild at cruise nights & car shows. I have seen a few, including the General Lee, several times! What have you spotted up close & personal? This was spotted in central IL:

Anyone else enjoy models of cities & towns &/or created 1 of your own!?

I have seen two this year. One was the new generation Batmobile and the other was the dodge van ambulance from mother jugs and speed.

Saw a bluesmobile last year built by two guys that wore the suits and had the fake tatoos etc
Saw an 89 batmobile and a half A$$ Delorean time machine at a show in Feb. All he really had was the flux capacitor
Fun though

There's a Starsky & Hutch replica Torino running around the city -- seen it on the roads a few times, but never actually at a show.

And then there was General Lee's Mini Me:



Poor photography on my part -- it's actually the correct color of orange, and it has autographs all over it -- I assume it was some kind of give away at a show.

I went to "Stars cars" in Gatlinburg Tenn. There was a general Lee, the '69 camaro from the Charlie's angels movie, the auburn speedster that madonna drove in edit Tracy, the dragula (from the Munsters) and others that I can't remember (its been probably 14 years)

Hmmm ... wonder if that's the same 1 someone mentioned elsewhere. But, I've seen a few of these the last few years in pics, so ... who probably not.

Believe Nashville TN has a similar museum....

Maybe there was more than one as giveaways. I didn't see it at a show, it was at my attorney's office in the middle of January, so I expect someone actually owns it around here.

After reading this the other day I couldn't help but stop and take this picture when I saw it.

Wow, maybe we should start a pool on what kind of vehicle we'll see next done up like the General? I'm going to guess a big old Cadillac or maybe a metro bus. Any takers?

The guy that does our paint work was the local representative for Carl Casper auto shows.  During the height of the "Dukes of Hazzard" popularity he was contacted to pump out a couple dozen or so General Lee's when they found it was cheaper to build them locally and ship them west (rather than to ship show cars around the country).  Exhaust pipe was used for the roll bar and push bar tubing.  By the end of the show's run they were getting pretty desperate for base vehicles.  One of them was so full of bondo he said "...if you are watching the show and see a car land behind a bush and there's a big pink cloud - you'll know it was this one!".

The guy lettering the flag got so efficient that he could letter the whole top in the length of time it took me to drink a 12 oz Coke.

Ive seen Mussolinis Alfa Romeo and on of Elvis Eldorados but I dont think that is what you guys are talking about. You mean T V cars. Does a really good replica of the Ecto 1 from Ghostbusters count?

LOL! I'm not sure we want to know.....

Tho, that truck isn't too bad. & an old Cadillac would at least be somewhat in the show theme, since that was Boss Hogg's car of choice....
