1969 Dodge Charger (General Lee) The Dukes of Hazzard Series Release 6 Limited Edition Diecast Scale 1:70 by Johnny Lightning













Yeeeeeeaahhhh !!!... No sé, pero todavía me sorprende lo convincente de mi acento tejano. 


Bueno, es que habiendo tomado clases intensivas en la Universidad de los Dukes de Hazzard, algo debí haber aprendido XDDDDD... 

Para esta publicación tendré que dejar a un lado la historia de Johnny Lightning, para hacer énfasis en esta jugosa máquina.

Dodge, compañía originaria de Detroit y ahora subsidiaria de Chrysler Group LLC, ha contribuido con una buena cuota de íconos a la historia de los Muscle Cars norteamericanos. 


El modelo ante sus ojos hoy, conocido mejor como General Lee es ni más ni menos que un Dodge Charger de 1969, que aparte de ser un auto de carreras con carrocería muy sexi, podía tener debajo de su enorme capó un "decente" motor 440 C.I.D. Magnum Hemi de "míseros" 425 hp...

Por esa clase de motivos es que volví a coleccionar diecast de vehículos, en especial de Muscle Cars, porque me apasiona la potencia bruta, sin artilugios ni ayudas electrónicas y esta pieza de Johnny Lightning logra un excelente detalle a escala 1:64 (mucho mejor que el de otros modelos de Joyride o ERTL)... 


Pero la historia de Johnny Lightning continuará, así que, si lo desean, podrían acompañarme en las próximas publicaciones que haré, si DIOS permite... Por ahora, hasta la próxima semana. =)

Yeeeeeeaahhhh !!!... I dunno, but I’m still surprised about how convincing is my texan accent (no offense there, right ???). 


Well, after I had some intensive classes at the Dukes of Hazzard University, I should have learned something XDDDDD... 

For this publication I have to put aside the history of Johnny Lightning, to emphasize this juicy machine.

Dodge, a company originally from Detroit and now a subsidiary of Chrysler Group LLC, has contributed with a lot of icons to the history of the north american Muscle Cars. 


The model before your eyes today, known better as General Lee is neither more nor less than a 1969 Dodge Charger, apart from being a racing car with a very sexy body, it could have under its massive hood a "decent" 440 C.I.D. Magnum Hemi engine with "paltry" 425 hp...

For that kind of reason I returned to collect diecast cars, specially Muscle Cars, because I love the raw power, without electronic aids or gadgets and this piece of Johnny Lightning achieves an excellent detail in 1:64 scale (much better than other models from Joyride or ERTL)... 


But the history of Johnny Lightning will continue, so if you want, you could join me in the next publications, if GOD allows... By now, until next week. =)

The colour scheme of this car suits your blog a lot and the man, there a pic to show the actual car too! I'm don't too sure but for those pics, the paint works seems to bit glossy with some rough surfaces especially on the side.
