Schneider Makes One More Charity Ride In The General Lee

THE DUKES OF HAZZARD star JOHN SCHNEIDER will take his beloved `General Lee' car out for one last charity spin before handing the keys over to a collector who paid $9.9 million (GBP4.95 million) for the classic TV motor at auction. The actor has promised one young pal the chance to become the last person to ride along with him in the 1969 Dodge Charger that he drove in the hit TV series. A spokesman for Schneider says, "John receives `dream of a lifetime' requests from ill children all over America - but one really touched him recently. "As a result, John will be giving a ride to a child with cancer, whose wish is to hit the road in the General Lee." The charity ride was scheduled through the Reel Angels charity prior to John's decision to sell the car, and will take place later today (05May07) in Agoura Hills, California. The insider adds, "John gave rides to another sick child, who also appeared in his movie Collier + Co - Hot Pursuit, but what will make this one extra special is it's perhaps the last time John will get behind the steering wheel before he hands over the keys."
