Did you know that the Dukes of Hazzard were based on real people?

Jerry Rushing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Jerry Rushing (born Monroe, North Carolina) is an American best known for his years as a bootlegger or 'moonrunner' (moonshine runner).

Rushing was born into a family business making illegal whiskey. As a young man he became a delivery driver, a job requiring late-night high-speed driving, often without headlights; for this he used a modified 1958 Chrysler 300D capable of 140 mph (225 km/h) speeds, easily more than most police vehicles"
