1968 M.C.C. CHARGER

» 1968 M.C.C. CHARGER

START WITH A STOCK 68 CHARGER… IT WAS WEARING THE DUKES OF HAZZARD WHEELS ALONG WITH THE FAMOUS DIXIE HORN… THE CAR WOULD MAKE THEM DUKE BOYS PROUD – IN FACT WE ACTUALLY BOUGHT THE CAR FROM ONE OF THE DUKE BOY’S CLOSE FRIENDS AND PROMOTIONAL AGENT!

THATS RIGHT FOLKS WE BOUGHT THE CAR FROM A GOOD OLE BOY IN GEORGIA WHO HAPPENS TO REPRESENT BYRON CHERRY WHO POTRAYED “COY DUKE” AND ALSO SONNY SHROYER WHO PORTRAYED “DEPUTY ENOS STRATE” IN THE 70′S DUKES OF HAZZARD TV SERIES. HIS NAME, MARK VAN WOERT – OR KNOWN IN THE HOLLYWOOD WORLD AS AKA – MARKUS JAMES.

BETWEEN WRITING, PRODUCING, ACTING AND DIRECTING MARK LOVES TO COLLECT MUSCLE CARS AND DUKES OF HAZZARD MEMORBILLA. IN 2008 HE ALONG WITH A TEAM OF TALENTED DUKES FANS GOT TOGETHER AND BUILT AN APPEARANCE HAZZARD COUNTY SQUAD CAR FROM A 1975 PLYMOUTH FURY FOR SONNY SHROYER.

MARK CANT WAIT FOR THE CAR TO GET DONE SO HE CAN SIT BEHIND THE WHEEL ONE MORE TIME BEFORE WE PUT HER UP FOR SALE. YOU CAN SEE WHAT MARK’S UP TO BY VISITING HIS OFFICIAL WEBSITE AT WWW.THETALENTBIN.COM
