1:18 Hazzard County Sheriff car hitting the market in January!

The Law in Hazzard

BOSS J.D. HOGG (SORREL BOOKE)
BORN: JAN. 4, 1930 – DIED: FEB. 11, 1994 – FROM: BUFFALO, NEW YORK

Loved two things above all others. Money and food. And not necessarily in that order either! He was the County Commissioner, President of the Hazzard County Bank and Police Commissioner. His attempts to make more money usually resulted in him getting into trouble and losing all of it as he tried to get out of trouble. Sometimes a little too trusting of the shady characters he hired to help, who usually double crossed him or he double crossed them. No honor among thieves here! 99.9% of the time was seen wearing a white suit with a white Stetson hat. He drove a white 1969/70 Cadillac Deville convertible.

ROSCO P. COLTRANE (JAMES BEST)
BORN: JULY 26, 1926 – DIED: APRIL 6, 2015 – FROM: POWDERLY, KENTUCKY

He tried, but like the balladeer once said, “Rosco’s a good sheriff, he’s just got too much on his mind.” Boss however would debate how much of a mind Rosco actually had. Rosco’s daily routine wouldn’t be complete without chasin’ after General Lee and sending his patrol car into Hazzard Lake or wrapping it around a tree. Everytime though, he would walk away, get a new patrol car and do it all over again the following week. Drove several different makes and models of patrol cars in the first season til finally settling with white 1978-79 Plymouth Fury police packages.

ENOS STRATE (SONNY SHROYER)
BORN: AUGUST 28, 1935 – FROM: VALDOSTA, GEORGIA

The most honest law man in Hazzard County. Had a heart of gold and a special place in his heart for Daisy Duke. Came close to marrying Daisy. Wrecked his fair share of patrol cars, usually by rear ending Rosco. Was called everything from ‘dipstick’ to ‘lugnut’ by either Rosco or Boss. Favorite expression: “Possum on a gum bush!” Seen driving the various different makes and models of police cars until the Plymouth Fury’s became the mainstay. Apparently owned his own car (a dumpy station wagon which ended up being blown up). Didn’t have a CB handle that I’m aware of, although I suppose Dipstick came close.

CLETUS HOGG (RICK HURST)
BORN: JANUARY 1, 1946 – FROM: HOUSTON, TEXAS

Not so much an honest law man, but still his heart was sometimes in the right place. Being 1/8th Hogg, Cletus knew he had a certain standard to live up to. (“The things a fella has to do to be Hogg,” he once said.) He too, had quite an infatuation for Daisy Duke. (Was there any breathing male in Hazzard that didn’t?) Shared with Enos the various ‘nicknames’ from Boss and Rosco. Favorite quotes: “Flapjacks on Ferris wheel!” and “Buzzards on buzz saw!” Was seen more often than not in his deputy’s uniform. Drove the Plymouth Fury patrol cars. Did not have a CB handle.

SHERIFF ‘BIG ED’ LITTLE (DON PEDRO COLLEY)
BORN: AUGUST 30, 1938 – DIED: OCTOBER 10, 2017 – FROM: KLAMATH FALLS, OREGON

Sheriff Little was the sheriff of the neighboring Chickasaw County. A big, bad, ass-kicking machine. He always hung out at the Hazzard/Chickasaw border, waiting for ol’ Rosco to chase dem Duke boys his way. It wasn’t clear who he hated more, the Dukes or Rosco. The Smokey Bear hat and reflective shades made for some mean looks, though Sheriff Little never said much.
