There's been a lot of talk at LeMons HQ about organizing a LeMons Hall Of Fame, but nobody agrees on the half-dozen or so cars that deserve first-round acceptance. Let's look at 41 LeMons Legends from the '09 season instead!
My original plan was to pick 20 or so cars for Legends of LeMons status, but the list grew and grew... and it's going to keep going if I don't cut it off right where it is. That means some cars that deserved to get in were overlooked, but LeMons racers understand that sometimes you just get hosed for no reason! These are the cars that I think best captured the spirit of LeMons in 2009, in semi-alphabetical order. Which of these cars do you think belong in the LeMons Hall Of Fame?
Police Brutality - Beating Up Breast Cancer, 1961 Cadillac Fleetwood
You can imagine our excitement when we heard that a '61 Cadillac would be racing in the Lamest Day. Team Police Brutality, not content with their original LeMons car (a Lincoln Mark VIII with the 280-horse DOHC Ford Modular 4.6 engine), put this finned pink monster together and piloted it to a 99th place (out of 122) finish. The Fleetwood crashed into the wall at high speed, but got back on the track within a few hours. The oldest car in 24 Hours Of LeMons history, and probably the heaviest!
