Only days after TV Land announced they would stop airing reruns of “Dukes of Hazzard,” another piece of Bo and Luke’s legacy is going the way of the dodo.

PGA Tour star Bubba Watson announced on Thursday night that he’d decided to paint over the Confederate flag on the roof of his “General Lee.” (RELATED: Don’t Forget About Dukes Of Hazzard’s Greatest Legacy [SLIDESHOW])

Though there were many “General’s” used throughout the show, Watson’s version was the one used to jump over a police car in the show’s opening credits. He bought it for $110,000 at an auction back in 2012 and, at the time, called it his “dream car.”
