Citroën DS, V8 Swaps Aplenty at the Sears Pointless BS InspectionMurilee Martin3/06/10 2:00amFiled to: 24 hours of lemonsBS InspectionSears Pointless24 Hours Of Lemons InfineonSears Pointless 24 Hours Of LemonsSears Pointless LemonsRacinghoonage91EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkNot sure how many cars the LeMons Supreme Court inspected for violations of the $500 budget rule today; supposedly 150 or so showed up, but many failed the safety test and never made it to us. Anyway, it was plenty!Does a Malaise era Lincoln Town Coupé belong on the storied Sears Point aka Infineon Raceway track? Of course! Provided it has a functioning 8-track, that is. The Italian Stallions Fiat X1/9 team cooked up some meatball sandwiches for everyone. It turns out that post-apocalypse Australian Hasidim drive Ford Capris. Meet Team Mad Maxeltov! How's this for meta-what-the-hell weird: a VW team with a LeMons Judges theme! Yes, they are dressed like yours truly and Judge Jonny. Best bribe of the day? A free Ford Tempo to use as the Judgemobile. We'll use it to mount the Ghost Ride The Whip box this weekend, and then it will probably meet a fate that will sadden Ford_Tempo_Fanatic. Sorry, FTF! The Team Schitroën Air Prance Citroen DS (actually an ID19, if we're honest) appeared to be close to race-ready as of 9:00 PM, after one of the craziest last-second thrashes we've ever seen at a LeMons race. Run by the same lunatics that won the Index of Effluency with a 1962 Austin Mini at the Buttonwillow Histrionics last summer, this car had sat for 20 years before being purchased for 300 bucks a couple months back. It drove a slow lap around the paddock under its own power at about 4:00 PM Friday, which was the first time it had driven anywhere since the 1980s.
