I know several guys here have run LeMons, but who and what car? Here's us in Houston. We'll be back in February with a different theme.

I'm thinking of doing my BABE car for LeMons

Here's Victor

He's not fast, he's not furious, but he was cheap and a 4spd. Of course he'll have to survive BABE first.

Here's a pic of our "Rice Rocket"'s maiden voyage at Thunderhill. We had a top 10 car with a top 40 team! We had no contact during the entire Thunderhill event, so the car came out completely unscathed and will be run in future events.

I must say that is a badass paint job right there! I would rock that car on a date in a heartbeat. Only one could hope my date has a sense of humor about things.

I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to post pictures of our LeMons car here anymore, but you can see it make its glorius return at LeMons South in April(?)

Tunachucker Brian - the highlight of my weekend at LeMons south last year was hearing a loud "SSHHHHCCCRRRRRRRR" -type scraping noise...then seeing a wheel roll past the fence @ about 60MPH...followed by a big green volvo going about 40.

Yes, the same Volvo (which survived quite nicely) will be at Lemons South with mostly the same drivers fot BOTH races this year.

The wheel thing is my fault. Someone turned the compressor off, and I tightened the lug njuts down with the impact gun. whoops. Read our website, it tells many such tales, tunachuckers.googlepages.com

We have a much better car this year, expect great things. We also figured out the gas tank, so we won't be off track for the first 4 hours of the race this time, that should get us a bit beyond our 47th place finish.

The Obamination. Red 1st gen. CRX. She's pretty banged up, but still runs and has a cage.

You passed us on the last lap. BTW, we both blow by Jensenman pretty fast on the back straight.

We plan to be at CMP in April and one team member is working on another car for September. We might be fielding 2 cars then, assuming the TT survives once again. To add to the merriment, a team member's wife wants to start a team as well. I will laugh my azz off if she and her hubby get on the course at the same time.

Yeah, I remember y'all passing me in my variable displacement V6-4-2-5-3-1 low gear only crapheap. There are changes in the wind, my friends.

The end was the best part of the race. I had the best lap time of my team, and I thought we were all driving pretty well for the end of the race. We had a brake problem, a lot of fluid leaking out of one caliper, which would make the pedal go to the floor now and again. I realized how much of a wuss I was being when I had that happen, pumped it a few times, and still went through the turn no problem.

It's going to be a good year.

Ever seen a Volvo 122 go fast?

Yeah, I saw one flyin' down the Interstate. The truck it was on had 'Don's Car Crushers' all down the side.

In June "Scuderia Limonata" will be heading out from Kalamazoo MI to New York, NY for the start of BABE....obviously ending in New Orleans, conveniently in time for the start of LeMons LAISSEZ LES CRAPHEAPS ROULEZ NEW ORLEANS!

this is how we found her, <img src="Photobucket" />

and this is how she looks now. <img src="Photobucket" />

My first LeMons adventure, Team America at Detroit '07 ('92 Olds Achieva SCX)

My second LeMons adventure, Team Festivus at Thunderhill '07 ('95 Subaru Impreza L wagon)

I bought a seat with a very ill prepared Saab team at Altamont for my third LeMons event. My fourth event was Detroitish '08, returning with the Achieva as Under Development:

And our return to Thunderhill '08 with the Subie as A Festivus Miracle!
