John Schneider Reveals 'Dukes Of Hazzard' Car Got Wrecked In Hurricane
Actor John Schneider just revealed the hurricane damage to the fan-favourite car from The Dukes of Hazzard. His replica of The General Lee was crushed beneath a large tree that got uprooted by the brutal Hurricane Ida. See the stunning picture below.
Hurricane Ida did not spare The General Lee.
This week, the storm devastating the state of Louisiana struck the studio of The Dukes of Hazzard actor John Schneider. There, his replica of the famed car from the '80s series got wrecked by a monstrous uprooted tree.
The Dukes Of Hazzard: General Lee car wrecked in hurricane
Here's the incredible photo Schneider shared on his Facebook page. The 61-year-old wrote: "Well... When something like this happens you have two choices: Tears and laughter. I choose laughter."
With the picture, Schneider added: "So… What's your caption? Here's mine: 'Miss Ida stopped by to see the General at Miss Shirley's last night...'"
Thankfully no one at Schneider's studio was harmed and, for fans, this doesn't appear to be the one and only General Lee. There are several versions of the infamous 1969 Dodge Charger.
Schneider also told the Daily Mail he plans to "bang out a few dents" in the car and "straighten it out a bit."
The General Lee had controversy in 2020
The General Lee was also in the news more than usual last year, when it was targeted amid protests against racial injustice in the United States.
The car's rooftop, of course, features the Confederate flag, recognized by many as a hate symbol and icon of American racism and white supremacy.
At the time, Schneider, who played "Bo" on the series, defended the use of the flag and criticized the "politically correct generation." His co-star, "Luke" actor Tom Wopat, was more understanding of the controversy, however.
