Is the Chevy Nova the Dukes of Hazzard car?  I can't remember what they drove but it looks like it....

The General Lee is the Dodge Charger driven by the Duke cousins Bo and Luke in the television series The Dukes of Hazzard. It is known for its signature horn, its chases and stunts -- especially its long/high jumps -- and for having its doors welded shut, leaving the Dukes to climb in and out through the windows. The car appears in every episode but one ("Mary Kaye's Baby"). The car's name is a reference to the Confederate General Robert E. Lee and it bears a Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia (The army which Robert E, Lee commanded) on its roof and has a horn which plays the melody from the first line of the song "Dixie".

The idea for the General Lee was developed from the bootlegger Jerry Rushing's car, which was named for Lee's favorite horse, Traveller. Traveller was also the name of the car in Moonrunners, the 1975 movie precursor to The Dukes of Hazzard.
