With over a dozen cars wearing the Cone Of Shame (a traffic cone bolted to the roof, indicating that the team is one black flag from being booted from the race), it's easy to forget that some teams race clean.
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.
The folks at LeMons HQ have become quite weary of the BMW E30. However, it remains possible to get your allegedly 500-buck E30 into even the most overcrowded race. How? Do what Team Special Deliverance did and Ford Ranchero-ize it!
Why have so many cars blown up, broken down, or crapped out? Nobody can say for sure. Whatever the reason, we've never seen so many dead cars at any LeMons race before.
