Dukes of Hazzard, General Lee Dodge Charger

An Englishman went old school and set up his own illegal distillery, Dukes of Hazzard style, producing whisky and vodka. This was no small venture though, it is purported that he made over 18 million dollars by trucking it out and selling it. Attempting to evade the police he hid the money in 11 bank accounts and numerous bonds. His fore thought about hiding the money apparently didn’t translate into daily transportation; his eventual downfall was brought by the fact that he was driving around in a Lamborghini. He is now rotting in jail for nine years.

    I wonder if he jumped his Lamborghini. Hmm. I wonder if he still has money hidden. Today is a day to wonder.

    I do have to give the man props for running the operation long enough to bring in 18 million dollars. Maybe he will invest in Mutineer Magazine.
