OK... this is likely not going to get many good votes, but for this challenge, I went to Duke Fest 2002 and saw Daisy Duke, Cooter, Sheriff Little, and Cletus Hogg, so that's OK. There were a lot of other relived childhoods there... including this guy who was just TOO proud of his General Lee. I liked the colors in it as well. Lots of fun.

Very nice photo. This must have played a large part in your childhood. I personally never got to see the show, but I was aware of it. I am from Michigan and Tom Wopat frequently comes back to perform in our theater and I got the pleasure to see him perform in Equus at the Barn theatre. Great photo and good luck in the challenge.

Pretty cool idea.

Pretty good shot. I think this is a bit of a stretch, but a better idea than I came up with, so, I'll go with this. 8 Swash

I saw the other Dukes of Hazzard picture also, which i thought had a better composition. Sure brings back memories, but you could have made more out of this i think.Still i like the guys wearing the orange shirts, showing that some stuff we used to watch is popular with youngster now!

Nice colours and the way the Tshirts match the car is interesting. To me (purely personal) this says more about teenage boys and men than it does about childhood (I tend to see childhood as that time when we are young kids, before we hit the teenage years, where we like to consider ourselves as "young adults").

Doesn't fit with my idea of anything to do with childhood.

Is this the Dukes of hazard car? Really looks like that guy misses his youth. 8.
