That Duke boy done got rich


"K.I.T.T." and "Christine" would be jealous. The definitive 80s car -- a replica of the General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard -- sold for nearly $10-million in an online auction on Friday.

Hazzard actor John Schneider ("Bo Duke") sold the car on eBay for $9,900,500 price. If the sale goes through, it will be the most expensive item ever sold on the online auction site.

Oddly enough, this particular car never appeared in the TV show. But it's an exact replica and features the autographs of the show's cast under the hood.

Schneider, who was expecting a final bid more like $3-million, said he'd use the money to help produce a sequel to his 2006 movie "Collier & Co."
