For the first time EVER… three of the original and most iconic cars in movie and television history are all on display, all under the same roof, The Marconi Automotive Museum. Come see them today! We are open: Tue-Sat, 9am-4pm.

Sitting at an incredible 19 feet, 8 inches long, this is the only one capable of igniting over 20 foot flames produced by its jet fuel injected engine. Come in and check out this piece of movie and automotive history in its new home, at The Marconi Automotive Museum.
‘General Lee’: The Dukes of Hazard (1979-1985)Some would argue that the ‘General Lee’ is not only one of the most well-known cars of its time, but also in entertainment history! This 1969 Dodge Charger is known for its high flying and car chasing antics from the hit 1980’s television series “The Dukes of Hazard”, also featured in the movie released in 2005. Come see it today!
