I love racing cars and working on them, but it sort of prevents me from enjoying certain things—like fingernail polish. I can’t get a manicure without it chipping immediately. So, I tried out a ridiculous manicure that had to be baked on like automotive paint to find out if pretty nails could finally hold up to oily…

LeMons 24 At NJMP: The Annual Audi Head Gaskapocalypse

We may be creating a terrible tradition here.

(And by “dominate,” I mean it’ll probably be a moving chicane when I’m driving.)

24 Hours Of LeMons: Preparing For Another Season Of Crushing Defeat

As if we hadn’t learned our lesson last year. For the members of the Brooklyn Bomb Squad, 2014 was, shall we say, character building. We blew the head gasket, we suffered timing issues, and generally spent most of our time towing the ’89 Audi 100 with the best paint job in history all over the East Coast and almost no…
