Archive for the ‘24 Hours of LeMons South’ category

I approve of the all-steel body kit, and just about everything else, on the Van Buren Boys G-Body Cutlass, but I’ve had some questions about them boys’ so-called 500-buck budget in the past. Unless they’ve found a magical 1/4-price junkyard in their hometown, something about the numbers ain’t quite addin’ up. With my skepticism in [...]

The LeMons Supreme Court is nothing if not culturally sensitive, so we like to honor regional traditions when we come to town. For the first state to secede from the Union in 1860, we decided to educate miscreant drivers with a penalty inspired by Southern nuptial customs: the Shotgun Wedding Penalty!  

When you bring a Super Beetle to a 24 Hours of LeMons race, you really don’t need a good theme; in such a case, the car itself is theme enough. That didn’t stop Cold Source Racing at the ‘Shine Country Classic last weekend.  

We like to encourage miscreants trapped in the Kafkaesque labyrinth of the 24 Hours of LeMons Supreme Court to create great works of art as they serve their time. In other words, cardboard-and-duct-tape engine sculptures!   

When you’ve managed to take a LeMons win on laps with a car that sold for nearly 100 grand in the mid-1990s, you need to go the extra mile with your theme at the next race if you want to avoid massive BS laps. When Team Sgt. Schultz emailed LeMons HQ for a residual value [...]

24 Hours of LeMons fanatics have been hoping for a vintage NASCAR-style entry for years, and Legend of LeMons Unununium Medal winner Speedycop and his henchmen came through at the Southern Discomfort race last month.  

Judge Mike had a hit with the 1990s Detroit Car Metric-SAE Fastener Mix-N-Match penalty, but that wasn’t his only contribution to LeMons Penalty Box innovation.  

When we made Mike, team captain of the legendary Tunachuckers 24 Hours of LeMons team, a LeMons Supreme Court Justice at the Southern Discomfort race, we had no idea that he’d be adding so many cruel rehabilitative penalties to the LeMons Supreme Court’s torture kit arsenal-o-fairness. Here’s one that you Sears Pointless miscreants will be [...]

I’m turning around and going to another LeMons race, for back-to-back weekends (it’ll be back-to-back-to-back weekends in April), so I don’t have time to do a lot of Southern Discomfort posts right now. Just head straight to the Über Gallery for now.

Off To South Carolina!

After nearly six weeks with no LeMons races, we’re finally spraying some starter fluid into the 2011 season and jump-starting this bastid!

Because the Van Buren Boys brought zero documentation for their car, which was semi-cheaty (built 350, 4-speed, LSD 10-bolt, etc), they got a dozen penalty laps. However, this excellent racin’ machine brought smiles to our faces every time we saw it over the weekend.

The LeMons Supreme Court has had the use of some great Judgemobiles, including such standouts as the Short Bus, the ‘47 Ford rat rod, and the Doomed Tempo. At the LeMons South Fall ‘10 race, however, we had two incredible Judgemobiles!

You thought there’d be no more BS Inspection timelapse videos after I left Jalopnik? Think again!

The moment we first laid eyes on this ‘74 Chevrolet Caprice at the LeMons South race last weekend, we knew it would be taking home a major trophy.

And the Real Winner Is…

When a 24 Hours of LeMons race gets about two hours from the checkered flag, Chief Perp Jay Lamm begins the process referred to as “Doing the thing with the shit.”
