WHY I HATE THE GENERAL LEE 'DUKES OF HAZZARD' TV STAR CAR
One of the most famous cars in the world is one of the most despised cars on my very short list of despised cars.

JANUARY 2012:THIS 1973 CADILLAC AMBULANCE MADE A HUGE IMPRESSION ON ITS CURRENT OWNER IN 1985
There is a 100% certainty that an ambulance will make an impression on people every time it hits the street.

THE BURNING QUESTION: DO YOU BUILD IT FOR SPEED OR SHOW IF THESE ARE THE ONLY CHOICES?
We have seen a lot of old iron and interviewed a lot of car owners over the years.
The vehicles range from show to go-and all points in between these two sometimes divergent philosophies.
Let's face it, a show car may well be a 100 point restoration car, complete with an underpowered six banger from days of yore.
On the other hand, it might be a 100 point 440-equipped Plymouth.
But we want to know which school of thought wins the day in 2012.
