Hazzard County, Ontario

Before getting back to our regular Asian adventures, let's explore Blenheim, Ontario. Here, you can see real Dukes of Hazzard cars (above) or travel through the history of the automobile, where important trends, like the bullet bumper, are on display:Did you know that in the good old days it was darker and you needed more headlights and that horns were, indeed, horns?In the past, cars expressed themselves with ornamental yet dangerous hood ornaments like the flying tire lady, the space bus, or the flexi-bird.Oh dear, I seem to have a flat in my smooth mint & white tire!
Ok, you've waited long enough, we're back to Asia. Do you think the modern Dukes would drive, perhaps a Ssangyong Actyon?
