The diagonal DUKES is similar to the New York Rangers style, but here it is meant to give the impression of a sash, which is something an actual Duke would wear. Neat, huh?
Ah the 80’s. All you had to do was cast a cool car for a hit show. The A-Team, Knight Rider, Magnum P.I., The Fall Guy, Hardcastle & McCormick, and Dukes of Hazzard might be more known today for their cars than the stories and characters the shows depicted.
