The 19th race in the history of the 24 Hours Of LeMons is over, and Mazda has tied Toyota for the title of Most LeMons Wins: five apiece!

For Toyota, three Supras and two Corollas have taken an overall LeMons win, while last weekend's Mazda victor made it two RX-7s, two Miatas, and a Protege. After that, Honda/Acura and BMW have two wins apiece. The heat was a major factor, with brake failures and blown head gaskets aplenty, and five cars caught on fire over the weekend. We also saw the LeMons debut of several Detroit machines, including a Contour, a Sebring, and a Beretta; the Contour and Beretta died during the first half-hour, but the Sebring went on to place an astonishing 14th.
Thanks to Ron Vickers and many others for the photos!

I think #44, Our Lady of Perpetual Downforce, should get best of show is it ever enters in the Concours d'Lemons car show organized by the same people.
