DukesFest: The cars, oh, the cars

Whew ... It sure was hot, but the cars were hotter. We continue our coverage of 2008 DukesFest with coverage of the actual 2008 DukesFest! Proceeding in chronological order, we're done with the Covington pre-event events, and now we're at the show. And as you know, the show is all about the car. At least some say it is. And the car -- meaning the car, the blazin' orange General Lee -- was certainly in attendance.

One of the show's organizers told BRBTV that more than 150 show cars were registered for the event. You saw not only the many Lees, but some other fun stuff such as Daisy's yellow Road Runner, seen in a few early episodes, and her Dixie Jeep.

You just don't see many Uncle Jesse pickups, so it was certainly nice to see this one. The sign in the windshield says it was restored in loving memory of Denver Pyle.

The Batmobile was there, ready to pose with you for a picture, along with Adam West and Lee Meriwether of the '60s TV show and movie.

We had to save the best for last. How delightful to see not only Boss' Caddy convertible (it's really our favorite "Dukes" car, truth be told), but also Hughie Hogg's little Bug convertible! How fun is that, side by side!!!!!
