[General] September 1985

Let's go back in time shall we? To September 1985.

We are the World showed everyone that America loved Africa (except ironically South Africa whichs bans the song). Split Enz split up. The Breakfast Club and Teen Wolf made their way into popular culture. And the General Lee toured New Zealand.

But wait. Who is that dashing young man? The redhead in the red stripey jersey, the rolled up jeans and the f**kin' awesome sneakers? One thumb of one hand stuck in his pocket doing his best James Dean.

Oh, wait that's me. I don't know who the other kids are though. Possibly they were part of my gang.

That's all very well, but what about the week 13 podcast?!?

It's coming Tom. I'm doing last minute edits now. Damn these five day working weeks!

Sorry to spoil your golden memories of childhood but if you look closely at the bottom photo you can see someone on the other side of the car with... the door open!!

You've been had, it's a fake General Lee!

I used to lock the doors of our Kingswood and leave the windows down so we would have to go in Dukes-style but Dad's beergut made it seem more like an episode of Winnie the Pooh.

Just to be historically accurate: the doors of the General Lee could be opened. There were only a few stunt cars on the series that had the door welded shut.

But good CSI-esque spotting
