Larry Franks has been collecting Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia his whole life. When he was young and the show was still on the air, his grandparents bought at least two of every Dukes toy they bought him, one to play with and one for posterity. When he was a teenager and eBay showed up, his collection got bigger and hasn’t stopped growing. Over the past decade and a half, Larry has been fortunate to have many Dukes adventures that have taken him to three different Hazzard Counties, he’s met all of his heroes (the cast of the Dukes of Hazzard) and became friends with several. He appeared as an extra in the 2005 Dukes of Hazzard movie, interviewed John Schneider and Tom Wopat, and regularly works with Ben Jones and Catherine Bach at all the Cooter’s Place locations. He attends several Dukes of Hazzard events a year.
His Dukes Collector blog has become the online destination for information on Dukes memorabilia and this new site will add more information for fellow Dukes fans and collectors. Please contact Larry if you are looking for information on Dukes products, want to sell anything Dukes, or just want to talk about the good ol’ Dukes of Hazzard.
Many of Larry’s stories about his Dukes adventures can be found on the Dukes Collector blog.
