The Weekly Links: Duke Boys Upgrade Their Ride, 'Transformers' Intro Gets Slow Jammed, 'Spy Hunter' Interceptor Finally Identified

Time to put on some jam shorts and your best Ocean Pacific shirt and surf the most bodaciously 80s links of this past week! Lots of like totally gnarly waves of nostalgia were crashing onto my RSS beach. Unfortunately, my Feedly reader has been bogus lately and I haven't been able to share them all. But that's why The Weekly Links are here to save the day...err, week! Here's what I learned this past week:

TWL's video of the week was a transition. The aforementioned drummers were on track to win it and then I thought the kids reacting to Ducktales would be the one this week. Then my good friend and RD80s contributor Wyatt posted the below video to his Facebook page and I felt it topped the others. The Duke boys are back together in the General Lee for a new Autotrader.Com TV commercial. They felt it was time to finally upgrade their beloved ride for a new model...
