Bo Duke’s General Lee back on the auction block

John Schneider recently sold his General Lee car for an incredible $10 million on eBay, but the sale fell through because the bidder’s account was hacked and he wasn’t making the bids, according to the Associated Press.

Now, Schneider has the car back up for auction, but only to pre-screened bidders.

Those wanting to bid must prove upfront that they can pay for the car, Schneider said. Once pre-qualified, the bidders’ bank will actually be listed as the bidder, Schneider said.

The car is a 1969 Dodge charger with 10,819 miles and has the signatures of The Dukes of Hazzard cast. It wasn’t featured on the original TV show, but it was used in one of the Dukes reunion movies, Schneider said.

Schneider has had his General up to 175 mph, he said in the clip. Um, I hope no one tells Rosco P. Coltrane about that excessive speeding.

For those interested, bids start at $100,000.

The auction ends May 29.
