    If you're talking about the Xtream Lee, I seen it on "Rides" and it isn't country the guy sings, LOL. Nice car, turned out really cool. I like how the 01 and the rebal flag look like they're tearing from going so fast.

    somewhere in the pig pen is some pictures of Jessica Simpson as Daisy Duke, if memory serves there is at least one with the new lee in it.

    Yep Johnny Knoxville and Sean William Scott. The movie is being made by "Broken Lizard" the same guys as Super Troopers, so it will likely be a bit of a spoof. Not that the original was all that serious.

    The wheels on Sheperd's car evoke the old Halibrand 10 spoke wheel. I don't think they look bad at all. Might not be true to the series car though. The dubs part ruin it for me, they should've been 16's at the largest.

    those look like 18s to me. Personally I love the look of muscle cars on 17s or 18s. I want to build a lowered first gen F body on some nice 17 or 18" rims with some real street power :D

    guess i'm true oldschool.. i stay openminded to new stuff but some things i'll never accept.. i hate that stuff with a passion... and i curse the day directionals came out..

    the original looks a thousand times better imo, stance, rims.. low profile tires aren't meant for muscle.. muscle should be stout, not slammed...

    to each his own i guess... just like to voice my opinion on that one since it seems to go against the masses these days...

    I like the idea of not only taking a ricer off the line, down the strip, but in the corner at the end of the road too ;)

    I like it! The tires don't look too much like rubber bands; they're definitely not 60-series, but they don't look like 30- or 35-series, either.

    I like it.....Even the rims look good. They could've used that one in the movie and probably done okay with it. I hadn't heard anything, and I was almost afraid they would use a newer model car, 06 charger? or something. Glad to see they even kept the rebel flag on top. Gives alittle bit of hope for the movie...lol

    For those of us that grew up watching it, and are BIG fans, the movie will probably piss us off. But for the ones who just watched ever now an then, will probably like it. I'm gonna go see it for sure.
