I remember being in shcool in Atlanta 20 years ago and hearing a friend tell story of a junkyard in California that had a whole row of General Lees in it.
Turns out that's not exactly the case when it comes to the fate of those famous Chargers.
According to better sources:
-As the cars went airborne (an estimated 150 times) and/or were wrecked...they were cannibalized for parts for future General Lees. Especially the Dixie-painted body pieces and beefy engines.
-Other used ones were set a a still prop for shots in town or ourside Uncle Jesse's house..these were known as the "bucks".
-Most of the rest of the wreckage was shipped to a crusher and squashed beyond recognition.
-When the run of the show ended in 1986, there were a reported 18 General Lees left, which sat on the old Warner Brothers set gathering dust for a few years, before 17 of them were sold to private owners.
