You Can Now See The 24 Hours Of LeMons Race At Barber From Space

The 24 Hours of LeMons is used to seeing participants’ cars show up on Google Maps, but this is the first time an entire event has made the cut. Here’s this year’s ‘Shine Country Classic, right here on Google Maps. Tinker around, zoom in and marvel at LeMons’ preference for purple canopies. » 4/26/15 10:49am Sunday 10:49am

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… » 4/23/15 1:39pm Thursday 1:39pm

Which Car Would You Enter In The 24 Hours Of LeMons Out Of Spite?

Once upon a time, I had a miserable beater. Unfortunately, it belonged to my parents and got traded in when they finally realized they had spent several running 944s’ worth in repair bills. Had it been signed over to me, there was no doubt in my mind where it needed to go to die: the 24 Hours of LeMons.

I Towed A Dodge Dart In Texas Snow With A Silverado 1500 And Didn't Die

So, you bought a race car. Congratulations! Let me guess: you only have a few bars of eye-searingly bright LEDs on the front instead of your OEM headlamps, and now you can't drive it on public roads anymore without getting stabbed in traffic? Gotcha. We at Black Flag are here to help. » 4/16/15 12:10pm 4/16/15 12:10pm

Bad Idea Funtime: Could You Corner Balance A Car With Truck Nutz?

My 944 has a problem: when the gas tank starts to empty, the back end gets light. I've ruined its perfect 50-50 weight balance by taking off the heavy glass hatch.

Speedycop's Race-Ready Family Truckster Is Amazing And For Sale!

The gaudy, overwrought Wagon Queen Family Truckster is probably one of the best visual gags in National Lampoon's Vacation and says more about the excesses of the American auto industry than many books on the subject. But I don't think that's why LeMons legend Speedycop built one. He built it because he could. » 9/30/14 11:00pm 9/30/14 11:00pm

There's Only 16 Of These Canadian Cars Left And One Raced At LeMons

See that red 1960 Falcon there? Notice anything weird about it? Anything Canadian weird? Like maple leaf badges or a strange grille? That's because what you're looking at isn't a Ford Falcon. Hell, it's technically not even a Ford. It's a Frontenac. And one of the few left just raced at the 24 Hours of LeMons. » 9/24/14 10:30pm 9/24/14 10:30pm
