24 Hours of LeMons vets Conrad Stevenson and Martin Lauber came centimetros from plowing into some Mexican livestock at high speed, but Martin’s driving skills made for a happy ending.

What Does It Mean?

October 31st, 2010

Spotted this bit of incomprehensibility in my neighborhood.

Four of the six 24 Hours of LeMons regions now have established champions, and they’d be entitled to have their trophies delivered in person by the LeMons Trophy Girls… only, like, that costs money! Instead, those winners will get their entry fees waived for the season-ending Fulgencio Batista Memorial 24 Hours of LeMons race in […]

I should let the owner of this Volvo 142 know that there’s a complete, super-straight 144 in a nearby junkyard, because it would be a shame for all those nice parts to get gobbled up by The Crusher.

Sometimes I miss the burritos of Alameda, not to mention Lee Auto Supply, but the supply of interesting street-parked vehicles in Denver keeps the Down On The Street series up to Alameda standards. Here’s a near-perfect MGA I found parked just a block from my house.

1941 Ford

I don’t give a rat’s ass about football, but even I know that the wretched Raiders somehow vaporized the Broncos the other day.

As LeMons fans already know, the battle for the ‘2010 season points championship has come down to Calfornia’s Eyesore Racing and Texas’ Red Rocket Ratnest Revival. On Saturday, the Ratnests’ SHO suffered a major mechanical setback and appeared to have no chance at the top-10 finish needed to get those all-important points.

And The Real Winner Is…

October 24th, 2010

Contrary to popular belief, it is not impossible to win the coveted Index of Effluency trophy; prior to today, we’ve had two double-IOE winners. Today, we have our third: Team Police Brutality and its MR2-chassis-swapped Lancia Scorpion!

And The Winner Is…

October 24th, 2010

The last time a Neon took the checkered flag at a 24 Hours of LeMons race was way back in 2006. Today, the Skid Mark Dodge Neon held off the competition– including a menacing BMW E30– and brought home the 1,500 bucks in nickels.

When you cut-and-paste a Lancia Scorpion body onto a wrecked Toyota MR2 chassis, then show up to a race with the project only 60% done, you don’t expect the car to stay in one piece all weekend.

We of the LeMons Supreme Court like to make at least penalty that reflects the current season, so we brought pumpkins to the Rod Blagojevich Never-Say-Die 500.

The Saab 9-3 that started the day as the race leader has done blowed up, which gave the Skid Marks Neon drivers the opening they needed to grab the lead.

Yes, we’ve got a LeMons team that brought pole dancers to the race.

Day One Over, Saab 9-3 Leads

October 24th, 2010

An exhausting day of racing at the Autobahn Country Club is over, and the Cougar Bait 9-3 holds the lead.
