Santa Monica, California -The 1969 Dodge Charger that portrayed the “General Lee” in The Dukes of Hazzard has been named the Greatest Movie and TV Car of All Time by Edmunds’ InsideLine.com.
The General Lee topped a list of 100 cars chosen by Edmunds.com editors as the most iconic on-screen vehicles in Hollywood’s history.
“Even Rosco and Boss Hogg would have to agree: no Hollywood car was more fun or more popular than the General Lee,” said editor-in-chief Scott Oldham. “But what many people may not know is that 300 different Dodge Chargers portrayed the car over the course of the show’s 145-episode run. That’s more than two mostly-wrecked cars per episode.”
The top five are rounded out by a 1963 Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger; a 1977 Lotus Esprit that turned into a submarine in The Spy Who Loved Me; a 1977 Pontiac Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit; and the yellow 1932 Ford Coupe from American Graffiti.
