It's no General Lee, but it goes higher

Chrysler Group's display on the show floor features a team of Mopar service technicians demonstrating a multi-point inspection on a black 2012 Dodge Charger every 15 minutes during the entire run of the NADA convention.

The technicians said the Charger has a grand total of 47 miles on the odometer -- all horizontal. But if you count the six feet it goes up and then down four times per hour for each hour the show is open, the black Charger will have accumulated almost a quarter mile of vertical travel by the time the expo ends Monday evening.

That should make it the highest-flying Dodge Charger since the General Lee, the 1969 Charger that was the star of the former CBS show, The Dukes of Hazzard.
