The General Lee Goes Drifting

Gymkhana

Just a couple of good ol' boys, never meanin' no harm...except to their tires, maybe.

If you ever tuned in to watch The Dukes of Hazzard (whether the 80s TV series or the 2005 film adaptation), you didn’t have to watch for long before Bo and Luke Duke jumping their '69 Dodge Charger (affectionately known as The General Lee after the Confederate chief and decked out with a rebel flag on the roof) off of stuff. But drifting? Maybe a little, down backwoods dirt roads and what-have-you. But that apparently wasn’t enough for some hillbilly hoonigans who repurposed their Charger in same livery as a drift car.

The video below has more screeching tires than banjo music and Dixie horns, but it’s worth a watch. Especially if you’re of the persuasion that "the South will rise again" and still refer to the Civil War as the "War of Northern Aggression".
