The Top 77 Lemons of the 24 Hours of LeMons South Spring 2010

The 29th race in LeMons history took place last weekend, and we saw BMW tie Toyota for second place in the overall-win category (Mazda holds seven LeMons titles versus five apiece for BMW and Toyota).


Plenty of drama to go around at the second annual LeMons South Spring race, with the race-leading Volkswagen GTI blowing its engine late on Saturday, torrential downpours helping a 55-ton Audi four-wheel it to an impossible 7th place, and one of the most intense Index Of Effluency battles in LeMons history. Two Alfa Spiders, a Fiat 124 Spider, a Dodge Omni, a Chevy Citation X-11, and the aforementioned Audi 100 all fought for IOE supremacy, with the Citation— the most-recalled car in American history— coming out on top.
