It may not have taken place in a fictional Hazzard County, Georgia, but real-life Detroit, Michigan works just fine, too.
Well, to kick off the 65th Autorama, Detroit’s annual hot rod show at Cobo Hall, stunt driver Raymond Kohn got behind the wheel of the 1969 Dodge Charger, a near perfect replica of the iconic General Lee, hit the gas.
At a speed of 55 mph, he drove onto the ramp and went 25 feet or so into the air, and returned to the pavement about 134 feet later, and according to The Detroit Free Press.
It’s like the roller coaster ride. But in the end, it is like the roller coaster derails, added Kohn, who hails from Ohio.
So why did Autorama’s organizers want to feature the stunt like this? Because it would be cool as all hell. That simple.
It was also terrifying for Raymond Kohn. I’m scared to death, he said, but the adrenaline rush helped him get through.
He’s also the mechanic and owner of R/T Auto Repair in Ohio and, on the side, he builds replicas of his favorite TV and movie cars. Well, in fact, some of his replica General Lee’s were used in 2005 The Dukes of Hazzard feature film.
