Give it to your kids to play with (along with other Dukes of Hazzard toys) to extend the love and legacy of the show, or showcase it in a case or shelf in your home. A collectors edition may even warrant a plaque or at least a note.
There truly are endless ways to express your love of Dukes of Hazzard — from sporting a rebel flag bandana to tooting your Dukes of Hazzard horn, but undoubtedly the essence of the whole show is embodied in that amazing car, General Lee. Indeed, you could collect the whole slew of characters and merchandise to go along with it.
Your Dukes of Hazzard toy car will be a subtle and yet direct reminder for you to continue to live by the show and all that it means to you. From recreating your favorite General Lee scenes to simply using it as a decoration piece, you will definitely not regret your investment.
