Throwback Thursday: My DUKES OF HAZZARD Power Cycle by Coleco (1981) #tbt

So here’s an oddity: Two posts involving THE DUKES OF HAZZARD (here’s the first one) here on The Rock Father… not only in the same week, but just about 24 hours apart. Yes, since CMT is airing the old DUKES episodes in HD for the first time this week, it seemed pretty appropriate to break this out for my Throwback Thursday post. I mentioned way back in March of 2012 that I once had the famed DUKES OF HAZZARD Power Cycle by Coleco – a “Big Wheel” of sorts that I received for my fifth birthday, back in 1981. Well, not only did I get the Power Cycle, but I also had a full-blown DUKES-themed Birthday Party that year, and now – for the first time ever – I’m getting to share pictures and video of both, all thanks to some newly-digitized Super 8mm home movies from my youth. Here we go… time for some #TBT action!

jimmy5As I raise my little ones, they’re getting schooled in the ways of Hazzard County (my wife say’s I’m a “closet hillbilly”), just as I’ve already shared with them KNIGHT RIDER. I’d love to break out SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT, STROKER ACE, and maybe THE A-TEAM, but they’re definitely probably too young yet. I wonder if THE FALL GUY is out on Blu-ray?

But as for the DUKES, few can deny the appeal of a bright orange Dodge Charger. Addie even tried stealing the General Lee on at least one occasion…
