I'm too busy to take many photos during a LeMons BS Inspection— the gauntlet through which all entrants must pass in order to prove that they stayed within the $500 budget— when we have 120+ cars. Timelapse video time!
We're back at MSR Houston once again, and the LeMons Supreme Court sweated its way through a super-swampy hot day in Texas. Lots of Taurus SHOs, lots of BMW E36s, a couple of Mustang IIs, and much more!
After sweltering in the Northern California sun all day at the aptly-named Arse Sweat-A-Palooza 24 Hours of LeMons race, all coherence has been boiled out of my brain. Let's get right to the photographs.
We didn't have time to inspect all 90 entrants on Friday, which means we'll be getting up at oh-dark-thirty to inspect the remaining cars before the cars hit the Stafford Motor Speedway track at noon Saturday. However, it's clear that the makings of a mighty three-way race for the Index of Effluency— the top LeMons…
I don't have time to shoot many photos of the cars while I'm sniffing out Cheatonium-239 components in LeMons cars, so I let my CHDK-hacked camera shoot a photograph every 15 seconds. Enjoy.
Somewhere between Denver and Kansas— actually, at High Plains Raceway in Colorado— the LeMons Supreme Court spent Friday checking alleged $500 race cars for possible cheating and/or general awesomeness. Some of the former, vast quantities of the latter!
What most quiet Southern towns want more than anything else is to block off downtown on Friday afternoon, run a parade of 89 so-called race cars down the main drag, and then endure a LeMons BS Inspection. Welcome to Camden!
Once again, the BumperCam captured the action at the 24 Hours of LeMons BS Inspections, shooting a photograph every 10 seconds, all day long.
A long, long, long day of inspecting so-called $500 cars for this weekend's Goin' For Broken 24 Hours of LeMons (moved to Thunderhill after Reno-Fernley went bust) has finally been wrapped up, and the car selection is staggeringly good.
We just finished a huge meal of serious jambalaya, courtesy of those E30-drivin' Cajuns from Chauvin, Louisiana, and that capped a long, humid day of busting cheaters and rewarding the effluent.
With only about 57 entries showing up to the first-ever LeMons event at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, Michigan, the LeMons Supreme Court was able to scrutinize each entry with extra suspicion.
Not sure how many cars the LeMons Supreme Court inspected for violations of the $500 budget rule today; supposedly 150 or so showed up, but many failed the safety test and never made it to us. Anyway, it was plenty!
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.
