Autorama 2017: A jump of a General Lee, and so much more!

Whew! This chick finally gets a chance to sort through videos and photos from this past weekend -- what a busy few days it has been, with all kinds of folks visiting from out of town, and all kinds of fun being had! It was centered around Autorama in delightful downtown Detroit, which kicked off late Friday morning with a jump of the General Lee, then continued with assorted "Dukes of Hazzard"-related stuff throughout the event (oh, and there was some kind of car show there, too, right?).

The General Lee jump happened right behind the event venue, Cobo Center, on the riverfront, orchestrated by the Northeast Ohio Dukes with stunt driver Ray Kohn behind the wheel. The sun was shining, the temp was so mild, and the crowd was robust -- lots of people turned out to witness the car soaring through the air above Atwater Street. Look for video of the jump, as well as several other "Dukes of Hazzard"-related goodies from Autorama, on the BRBTV YouTube channel in the next couple days. For now, though, we've got some photos, courtesy of our roving reporter, Jason ...
