If This Photo Was Any More Awesome You Would Spontaneously Combust

I never thought the words in this headline would ever converge, but hey, isn't that what the internet is for? I WANT THIS MORE THAN I CAN POSSIBLY EXPRESS. (HT: MVictors.com). Not only is this real, it’ll be up for bid on eBay starting May 23rd. Oh God, this is the coolest thing ever made. My head is within moments of asploding from the pure, unadulterated awesomeness of this photo.

Think of it: A Dukes of Hazard General Lee, that is customized by Jalen Rose, and by purchasing it you actually help a bunch of kids. Oh God. The awesomeness... a 360ci V-8 crate motor, 4 wheel disc brakes, Alpine sound system featuring trunk mounted sub-woofer, custom embroidered "Charger" floor mats, white letter BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, and autographed rear decklid by Jalen Rose and John Schneider "Bo Duke" from the original series.

This must be bid on and purchased through eBay, and the proceeds from the sale of this car will benefit the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy (JRLA). The JRLA is a 9-12 college-prep charter high school on the Northwest side of Detroit. Jalen is donating this car out of his own personal collection to support this endeavour. The sale, as far as i can figure, is being handled through Operation Graduation. Operation Graduation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that launched a comprehensive Capital Campaign to raise funds for the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy.  The highest bidder will be acquiring the vehicle by making a donation to Operation Graduation. ALL PROCEEDS OF THE SALE OF THIS VEHICLE WILL BENEFIT THE JALEN ROSE LEADERSHIP ACADEMY. Gifts are tax deductible to the limits of the law.

Folks. Make this happen. This is car exists at the intersection of dreamland and imagination land, yet is tangible and beautiful. It can be yours. All you need do is win the bidding war that is soon to ensue. Many more photos and details can be found here.
