I've threatened to stop doing LeMons Über Galleries, since they're so damn much work, but I've managed to cut enough corners to do a sort of Über Gallery Lite this time.
I've finally finished putting together all the photos from the 2009 24 Hours Of LeMons Gator-O-Rama race, so it's Über Gallery time once again! There's a gallery for each and every Texas LeMons racer here.
Here we are with another 24 Hours Of LeMons Über Gallery, with photographs of every single entrant that managed to get some laps done before spitting connecting rods in all directions.
Ford was the second-most-numerous marque seen at the Arse Freeze-A-Palooza, with 14 vehicles (versus 18 BMWs), and two Fords in the Top 10 (not to mention the quickest lap time of the whole race) is grounds for Blue Oval pride. The important question is: when are we going to see a Jeffrey Lebowski Torino in the race?
The numbers of Volvos and Saabs seem to be on the decline at LeMons races, though we're still hoping somebody will show up with a 262C Bertone coupe.

Toyotas, as all LeMons fans know, have done pretty well in past races. A Corolla FX16 won at Houston, a Supra won…
Even though the BMWs outnumbered all the other Deutschland machines put together, don't forget that VW, Porsche, and Audi were represented at Thunderhill! As you'll see, VWs and Porsches tend to hold together somewhat better than the BMWs in a LeMons race… but that doesn't mean they don't blow up occasionally!
17 BMW-based teams showed up at the '08 Arse Freeze, which makes BMW the most numerous marque at the race. Why is that? Well, BMWs are practically race cars right out of the box, with great suspensions and big brakes, and the incredible cost of repairing a 20-year-old example and/or getting one to pass California's…
Now that I've had a chance to go through my photos of the 24 Hours of LeMons South event, it's time for the traditional LeMons Über Gallery! You'll see a set of photos for every car that managed to roar (or sputter) onto the track in Kershaw, South Carolina, plus links to team websites and other citrus-flavored…
