When you bring a 40-year-old air-cooled Volkswagen to a LeMons race, you expect to finish way, waaaay down in the standings. When your Type 3 Fastback pulls off a 39th-place (out of 123) finish, you get the Index of Effluency!
Remember the Mid-Drive Crisis Mitsubishi Mirage? They all laughed when it entered the track! Well, nobody is laughing now, because the innovative Mitsu with the mid-mounted driver's seat now sits at the top of the Yeehaw It's Texas LeMons standings!
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!

Jugs of bribe booze aplenty. Serious cheaters. A trio of air-cooled Volkswagens. Incredible food cooked up by Louisianans. Just another day of LeMons BS Judging!
