Live a Dukes of Hazard Fantasy with This 1969 Charger General Lee Rental and Daisy Duke

We may have just found a loophole in the exotic rental car industry. Instead of spending over $1,000 per day on a supercar that you're going to drive slowly anyway, why not get really cool with an old car that everybody loves.

Check out this 1969 Charger musclecar that's been painted to look like the famous General Lee. For just $200 per day, you can pretend to run from the sheriff with the voluptuous Daisy Duke at your side. What can possibly be better than that?

Normally, rental companies charge you extra for damage tires or chipped paint. But since this isn't performance rubber, a new set should be dirt-cheap. As far as we know, Fast Toys Club, the owners of this particular General, don't offer a complementary Daisy with every contract. That's a shame, considering girls from the south really know how to have fun.

Getting familiar with miss Duke is something every hot-blooded American should do at least once in their life. I mean, they named a pair of pants after her and that costume is pretty much synonymous with getting frisky behind the hay bales. But don't make the mistake of marrying her, because both the original actress (Catherine Bach) and Jessica Simpson got a little… plump with time.

This particular 69 Dodge Charger is fitted with a 230 hp 5.2-liter V8 and will only do 60 in 8 second, which is pedestrian. It might not even be period-correct, but the cars in Ducks of Hazard weren't all the same either because they crashed and destroyed them all the time.
