No $ale: Lone ‘General Lee’ bid of $100K isn’t enough for John Schneider

Mount Kisco native John Schneider has tried three times on eBay to sell his model of the “General Lee,” the orange 1969 Dodge Charger featured on the show.

He’ll need to try a fourth, because yesterday’s auction resulted in only one bid of $100,000, which was less than the minimum Schneider established before the second auction, CNN reports.

The first attempt to sell the car ended with a $10 million bid that was allegedly a goof. The second attempt crashed a week early when the eBay listing was deemed erroneous.

CNN says Schneider will test his luck a fourth(!) time, but not until January, when the car will be “put up for auction at Barrett-Jackson collectible car auction in Scottsdale, Ariz.”

I can’t wait that long. So, I’ll just have to toss a couple mil at a Batmobile in the meantime.
