There’s a series coming to Syfy this summer called Blood Drive, and it has a relatively simple premise. The world has run out of oil so cars are fueled, naturally, with blood. And while I get that it’s supposed to be intentionally absurd and campy, I’m concerned about the premise. I got questions.
The bright-orange 1969 Dodge Charger R/T that raised hell on TV in the hands of the Dukes of Hazzard has to be one of the most famous hero cars in fiction, mayeb behind Doc Brown’s DeLorean. This week we got to see it get air one more time, in real life, in the middle of Detroit.
