Last Call: General Leaking Edition

General  Lee
I’m not quite sure what’s going on with this Dodge, but perhaps someone took umbrage with the fact that the General Lee was in fact a Charger and not a Challenger.

    Need road trip advice: driving from Southern Ontario all the way to Key west. We’re planning an overnight in Mooresville NC, then on to Miami area for a few days of swamp boats, scuba diving, pointing at the “90 miles to cuba” sign, etc.
    Any recommendations for things I shouldn’t miss? I’ll be in the Delica, so the trip should be interesting. Hopefully no unobtanium part goes wrong en route.

      Ooooh, major road trip. Feeling envious. When do you hit the road?
      Charleston, SC is a worthwhile stop if you have any interest in antebellum architecture – and it’s become a GREAT eating/drinking city.

      Cape Canaveral is great. There is also a sandwich place on the way to Miami, maybe my wife will remember the name and where. Good roads!

      There’s a fun little road near Deals Gap, NC…

      Stop at the best seafood restaurant in Florida. The Dixie Crossroads Rest. in Titusville is tops in my book.

      As long as you’re going to be in Mooresville you should take the tour at Michael Waltrip Racing near I-85 and NC 150 (exit 36 I think). It’s generally considered the best of the NASCAR shop tours. They had a Hollywood set designer come in after they purchased a former movie theater complex and advise them on the refit. They have a gantry that extends out over the shop floor to give you a perspective that no one else has. Even if you’re not a NASCAR fan it’s an interesting tour. They charge a modest fee for the tour but it’s worth it IMO. They do get busy in May because of all the activity at Charlotte Motor Speedway but that just means you get to see more of what they do.

    In the summer of 2008 I discovered Microsoft and Dodge created a contest to design a scheme on a Challenger with the prize being a 2009 RT 6 speed.
    You could paint, use stamps but there was the ability to upload a custom PNG for an imagemap. I created 10 or so Challengers with Petty tributes, Vanishing Point (with dirt) and even one with rust and a for-sale sign in the windscreen. I voted every day for 3 months using my 10 disposable email addresses to vote myself up. I even got a few votes from real people!
    The winner was a flame scheme. Whatever.
    This car reminded me of that…

    A visual pun needs no explanation. By that standard, this seems a bit contrived.

      Does every McLaren have this very ugly location for a nr. plate holder in US? There’s room for plate in the front and center of the car. NA plate could make it look a bit beaver-ish but this solution is strange….

      1. Sjalabais Avatar

        Agreed, all this work that went into a streamlined, gorgeous design, and then the owners stick out the plate like that? Why not mount a sail to the passenger rear view mirror, too?

        I have no idea. It stood out like a sore thumb. Paired with the tacky wheels and the N (New driver) magnet on the back, I just assumed it was done by the young owner.

          It’s more than likely a “no-drill” solution utilizing a tow hook mount. Much more attractive than holes in the bumper.

      Vancouver – where McLarens outnumber AE86s.

        Also in the same parking lot: various AMGs, M-cars, and a really nice-looking Cayman that I would have grabbed a picture of, if I hadn’t been so distracted by the Corolla.

    Asked to choose between either their phone or their car for a month, 80% of Germans would choose the car:
    Very interesting! The sharing economy is not as well developed in Old Europe as in the US, but I’d still have expected a way more even share, maybe even in favour of the phone. In Germany, you can get everywhere by public transport or “Mitfahrgelegenheit”, the old-fashioned, well-established ride sharing.

    My first thought was “obviously a major malfunction”.
    …still too soon.
