Illustration for article titled Two Hours In: CRX, Metro, X1/9 Leading!

Black flags have been waving, parts have been breaking, and we're witnessing an unprecedented Honda-Geo-Fiat battle for first place here at the first-ever Buttonwillow Histrionics 24 Hours Of LeMons.


All three cars are LeMons veterans; the Spearmint Dyno Honda CRX is leading at the moment, closely followed by the Arse-Freeze-a-Palooza-winning Metro Gnome Geo. The real shocker is the performance of the Italian Stallions' Fiat X1/9, which is blowing away a lot of high-powered machines on this so-called horsepower track. Will the Fiat's head gasket stay intact longer than the Honda's? Will the Metro-Gnome's brakes catch on fire, the way they did at the Goin' For Broken LeMons? Check in later!
