When you see a '66 Volvo Amazon entering a race like the 24 Hours of LeMons, you figure it's going to finish. No, it won't be fast, but it will still be moving under its own power long after 75% of the Hondas have blown their head gaskets and 50% of the BMWs have succumbed to various complexity-related issues. The checkered flag is coming a bit late, due to all the metal carcasses on the track preventing the green flag from appearing (hey, this race ain't finishing on a yellow flag), and the Chuckers are hanging in there at 47th place. Our own commenter mechimike is on the team, and you can check out the Tuna Chuckers' website here. All we can say is: great car choice!
