The seventh and final season of The Dukes of Hazzard goes "forward into the past", flashing back eight years to reveal how Duke cousins Bo (John Schneider) and Duke (Tom Wopat) came into possession of their precious souped-up Dodge Charger, the "General Lee". Rescuing a battered black vehicle from a junkyard, the boys fix up the car and paint it orange in order to enter a high-stakes race--and hopefully, save Uncle Jesse (Denver Pyle) from being evicted by Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke). Unfortuantely for everyone concerned, the "General Lee" had a previous life as a getaway car for a particularly vicious gang of gold thieves! Country star Janie Fricke guests in this episode, which was directed by series regular Tom Wopat.
