The most anticipated new issue of Hot Rod magazine is now available! The November 2011 issue has hit the stands! You won’t want to miss the Bandit Trans-Am vs. the General Lee showdown!
Ask yourself. When is the last time you saw the General Lee in full splendor on the cover of a national magazine? Right there, we’re sold. It’s worth getting your hands on this issue for the photos alone. This ain’t no showroom beauty contest; these rebel machines are kickin’ up gravel.
Like feuding kin, both of these legendary, iconic cars hail from the same Southern turf. In their fictional settings, both are from Georgia; in real life, both are owned by Mark Osborne in Arkansas. Mark is a dedicated Dukes of Hazzard fan who generously allowed the use of his cars and ranch property for this scientific automotive research.
Ultimately, it was up to Hot Rod readers to name the winner of this duel. If you missed our earlier posting of Hot Rod’s Bandit vs. General video in our Duel to the Dust article, then go back and take a look!
Hot Rod magazine poses more debate-provoking topics in this issue, such as, Rosco vs. Sheriff Buford T. Justice, and Daisy vs. the chick who played Burt Reynold’s seat cover in Smokey and the Bandit.
John Schneider, ol’ Bo Duke himself, weighs in on these sensitive matters with his own thoughts on page 51.
