John Schneider’s eBay ‘Hazzard’: $10M ‘General Lee’ bid likely a hoax

Perhaps selling John Schneider’s “General Lee” on eBay was even more misguided than producing a movie version of “The Dukes of Hazzard.” (At least the latter featured Jessica Simpson in a bikini, for cryin’ out loud.)

The nearly $10 million eBay bid for the Mount Kisco native’s 1969 Dodge Charger appears to be a hoax, The (New York) Daily News is reporting.

Added Stockman:

<blockquote><div>If this guy was just doing it as a prank or to ruin someone else’s chances, he deserves to be hit in the pocketbook.</div></blockquote>

The winning bidder was listed as William Fisher, but I think we all know this is likely to be a pseudonym … for none other than Boss Hogg.
