All this post needs to complement the 1997-style animated GIF is some blinking text!

When you drive a terrible second-gen Camaro (yes, they’re all terrible) and you spin out repeatedly at a 24 Hours of LeMons race, the LeMons Supreme Court tends to rhyme “donuts on your lawn” with “Tony Orlando and Dawn.”

To win Ununhexium Legend of LeMons status, some teams showed incredible driving skills, others raced Fiat 128s or Cadillac Coupe Devilles, and still others ran their engines on one cylinder. Then there’s Sensory Assault, an Index of Effluency-winning bunch of Texans who rig a new assemblage of Hoopty Grade™ machinery on their RX-7 for each [...]

Nearly 1,000 photos from the hot-n-humid, engine-nukin’ action at MSR last weekend.

Texas Bound!

I always look forward to races at MSR Houston, and the Garrapatas Peligrosas 24 Hours of LeMons should be another fun one. Hot, humid weather means that we’ll have crankshafts bouncing off the asphalt and brakes trailing comet tails of flame, which means plenty of Heroic Fix opportunities for the racers.

We of the 24 Hours of LeMons Supreme Court always like to come up with penalties that refer to current events and/or local interests. For example, the Mark Sanford’s Love Letter To Argentina penalty in South Carolina.

The LeMons Supreme Court has become weary of the BMW E30, particularly late ones such as this 1991 318i. For this reason, smart E30 teams step up with a righteous theme. How about a fully functioning game of Operation on the car’s hood?
