My car's name: General Lee
How I fell in love with my ride:
I can remember watching the original episode. Before VHS, I would take my cassette recorder and hold it up to the speaker on the tv and record the sound of the show. I loved watching the General Lee jump. I always said, when I grow up, I'll have one.
