We've learned that any Nissan Z makes an utterly terrible 24 Hours of LeMons car, but a super-rusty, duct-taped-together 240Z?
First a Saab takes the overall LeMons win, then a Ford Taurus SHO wins the very next race? What's next, an Eldorado?
E30s? Miatas? Supras? Forget 'em! With Day One of the '10 Gator-O-Rama LeMons in the books, the standings are dominated by a group of cars that brings tears of joy to our eyes!
We spent the day watching the Crewe Le Pew Renault Le Car buzzing around the track. No black flags, no mechanical problems. Sure, it was incredibly slow, but it had the look of a survivor. Then: disaster!
We see this all the time during the BS Inspection: team can't get their shit together to finish their LeMons racer in time, so they bring their "real" race car and ask to be allowed to drive it.
The race started two hours ago, and I've been so busy dispensing Texas-style justice that I've only now had a chance to break out the computer for a quick update.
With 120, or 140, or whatever the number of entries at the 2010 Gator-O-Rama 24 Hours of LeMons, we're totally beat. Here's a gallery of what we saw today.
