Bill Caswell became famous for telling Jalopnik of his adventures taking a $500 Craigslist car and beating $400K rally machines to stand on the podium at last year's Rally Mexico. Now he's doing LeMons in an E30.

Bill Caswell and his $500 Craigslist rally car have a new challenge: the Baja 1000. Caswell's heading to SEMA, welding together a Baja E30, then heading to Mexico. He took a break from construction to share his plans with Jalopnik.
