Actor John Schneider Putting Iconic `Dukes Of Hazzard' Car Back On The Auction Block

Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ After a nearly $10 million bid for a car made famous by ``The Dukes of Hazzard'' fell through, John Schneider learned his lesson: Sell only to pre-screened bidders.

Schneider, who played blond heartthrob Bo Duke in the '80s TV series, said the winner's account on the eBay auction Web site was hacked as a joke, so he wasn't the one bringing up the bid for a version of the iconic 1969 Dodge Charger. The online auction was held earlier this month.

In a new eBay Inc. auction set to begin Saturday, the orange coupe with ``01'' on the doors will be listed to bidders who must prove upfront that they can pay, the 47-year-old actor told AP Radio News.

``No one will be able to bid unless they've gone through pre-qualification,'' he said. ``They have to jump through several hoops, and their bank actually winds up being the ones that will be listed as the bidder, not the individual.''

Although the car wasn't featured in the original ``Dukes'' show, it carries the signatures of cast members.

``Somebody's gonna wind up with this car, and if anything, the car's more famous than it was before,'' Schneider said.

``The Dukes of Hazzard'' aired from 1979 to 1985.
