That car screams Bubba. It would work for Boo too! Plenty of room in the trunk for a Budweiser Staff Bag.

He bid on it. But did his bid(s) earn him the General Lee?

Golf Channel posted on facebook that he made the winning bid for the "Original" General Lee for $110,000.   Also known as Lee 1.  The went through a ton of those cars because they kept crashing them.  Apparently Lee 1 was found in a junkyard and someone restored it.  I can't believe it only cost him $110,000.    Which is why I was skeptical but I looked it up and it turns out its true.  I had dukes of hazzard pajamas, lunchbox and trash can as a kid, so I am very jealous!  Bubba, you've got to let me take it for a spin.

Can't say I'm envious of him, but that car is extremely Bubba.

To say the least, I am! Sweet car!  I've also seen a golf cart done like the General Lee somewhere, can't remember exactly where.

Betcha it goes back on sale at next year's auction ... as "the car owned by Bubba:".Looks like a full roll cage in there and cars like that are just not comfortable on the street, especially when your passengers conk their heads getting in and out.That's the right car for jumping hills and filming the TV show,  but a copy with just the paint and a rumbling VB is what you want for the drive-in burger stops.

Bubba

Quote:

Bubba Watson showed up to the Phoenix Open in style on Wednesday. Watson, with NASCAR driver Carl Edwards riding shotgun, arrived in the original General Lee car used in the "Dukes of Hazzard" television series.



Note to Bubba: That car is not set up for street driving. Human skulls (or most bones for that matter) are not designed to do very well in impacts with roll cages.  (Even when padded they are dangerous.)

Youd expect a guy named Bubba to drive a car like that.  Its not my style and I wouldnt be caught dead in the General Lee but Im glad Bubba likes it and I hope he enjoys the car.

Bubba thought he might get a chance to take a lap around Phoenix International Raceway, but Was Denied by NASCAR

Quote:

"The image of the Confederate flag is not something that should play an official role in our sport as we continue to reach out to new fans and make NASCAR more inclusive," said NASCAR and former LPGA spokesman David Higdon in a statement Friday.

Watson, playing in the Northern Trust Open this week, was disappointed with the decision.

"Two days ago, they called my manager and said we can't do it, that NASCAR pulled the plug on it," Watson said, according to the Associated Press.

"They said the reason was the Confederate flag on top. I understand if I was using it in that form. But I bought because it's (number) 01, from the TV show, and who doesn't want a car that's been jumped (in a TV stunt)? The TV show was about moonshining, driving in the backwoods in those days."

Over the last week, that car depreciated approximately 99%.

    • I agree there may be repercussions from using force to restrain a criminal but I believe as long as the force was used to only restrain the individual and no additional bodily harm was done the courts would be lenient in their ruling and most likely no charges would result in most jurisdictions.   The alternative is the courts send a message to all victims of crimes that they are helpless and must solely depend on the police to capture criminals even when they are face to face with them.    
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/bweiss711/round/1137850 A couple of firsts in this round.  It was my first round using the GG tags, and it was also my first round ever under 100.  If you want to see what 18 holes looks like when you have no clue where the ball is going off the tee and have no short game at all to speak of.... check out this round!
    • I think the point is, if the victim of a non-violent theft decides to use violence against the thief well after the crime was committed, he opens himself up to all kinds of trouble. Obviously it's different if someone gets jumped or car-jacked and the criminal is the first one to threaten or use violence. I'm not sure how pepper spray is classified in terms of being a weapon or not but I imagine using it could legally be considered assault in a situation like this.  
    • Well, I did it!  Been taking hacks at golf courses for 20 years, started actually practicing 7 weeks ago, and I finally mother-effing broke 100 yesterday.  Shot 96 at a course I had only played one time before about 8 years ago. This was easily the most consistent I've ever hit the ball into the greens (8 GIRs) and my driving was as good as it has been all season.  The biggest thing with the driver was deciding to stop trying to be perfect on the tee.  Meaning, I wasn't concerning myself with how I thought I should be ideally hitting the club, instead, I just hit it the way I naturally hit it right now, played the "power fade" aimed out over the left side of the fairway, and mostly kept it in play.  I was still inconsistent off the tee with a few pop ups and pulled shots, but for the most part, I stayed out of trouble. The even better news is that I shot 96 and my short game was terrible. I had a couple duffs in sand traps and from the rough around the greens.  Plus, of my 8 GIRs, I 3-putted 5 of them and it wasn't always the lag putt that was the problem.  I missed a few 3 footers that you just can't miss.  So, I've still got plenty of strokes to remove from my score once I actually start to work on shots around the green.  To this point, all of my practice has focused full swings with the irons and driver.  So, needless to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think i'm just going to play the rest of the season with the same practice focus.  Might be time to start a "member swing" thread for my driver.  And in the off-season, the focus will shift to the short game. Unfortunately, it might be a few weeks before I'm able to get out for 18 again, but I can't wait to get out there and try to do this again.
    • The incident in the OP doesn't sway my opinion on gun control one way or the other. Isolated incident in which some angry, old white dude should lose his right to carry indefinitely, but nothing that makes me believe that every gun carrier needs to be affected or restricted due to this incident. The John Wayne comments from some of y'all however, do make me think that gun laws need to be seriously revisited. The fact that some of you...ahem...more extreme individuals are actually permitted to carry is frightening indeed. And before there is an uproar, let me be clear that I have no issue with most of you who carry as your comments seemed to be well balanced and rational. Some others...not so much. It's seems pretty obvious to me that your right to bear arms should be dependant upon on your ability to not lose your shit when you're pissed off.
