Over the weekend, Duke of Hazzard star John Schneider uploaded a video on YouTube that features details about his sweet new ride, which was used in his 2020 film Stand On It.

According to the Dukes of Hazzard actor, the Stand On It car was a 100% Custom Build 2016 T-Top Mopar Challenger. Its description reads, If the Smoky And The Bandit Trans Am and the General Lee had a baby it would be this gem!”

According to its IMDb, Stand On It is a “funny and zany” tribute to the 1977 cult classic, Smokey and the Bandit. The Dukes of Hazzard actor directed, wrote, and star in the movie. Mindy Robinson, Dion Baia, Byron Cherry, and Isaiah LaBorde also starred in the 2020  film. 

The Dukes of Hazzard star’s new ride comes less than two months after he revealed that Hurricane Ida caused significant damage to both his Holden, Lousiana home and film studio. He asked his fans to help him with the recovery of the studio by purchasing a movie or other souvenirs from his film studio’s website.

“Now, I’d like you to help us by going to the store, JohnSchneidersStudios.com,” Schneider shared. “Get you a movie, get your hat, get you something. And I would very much appreciate it.”

The Dukes of Hazzard icon further explained that Stand On It is fun, it’s fast, it’s pretty. And that’s apparently something people have forgotten about cars movie. “We hit the road two weeks from now with the movie.”  

Along with the film, the Dukes of Hazzard actor discussed his albums, Recycling Grace and Redneck Rebel. “These two albums couldn’t be more different. One is a southern rock that has an explicit song that you should not play for your kids. While the other is a beautiful gospel album.”

Despite the global health crisis, the Dukes of Hazzard star remains pretty optimistic about virtual shows and events. “We were at the forefront of virtual shows years ago. It is interesting that the world has gone that way.”

Schneider also recalled doing “cyber-signings” for Dukes of Hazzard fan events. “We were ahead of our time. This was two to three years before anybody had even heard of the Coronavirus.”

In regards to his time as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars, Schneider added, “I’ve done theater but I am not a dancer. It was a great experience though but also the scariest thing that I’ve ever done.”
