When I asked for suggestions for Christmas presents for family members, I was surprised to get a request for cars from a 40 year old TV show. I gave my grand nephew a model of the “General Lee” car last year so he wanted the rest of the cast this year. Car bodies carved from poplar, windshields and accessories made from oak and walnut. Wheels purchased from hobby shop.

G’Day Robert,
When I read the heading I was expecting to see the General Lee but you’ve done the rest of the vehicles from the series in this build…..top marks, though I’d still love to see a photo of the General Lee.
Cheers, crowie
