24 Hours of LeMons

24 Hours of LeMons Thunderhill: The Cars of Arse-Freeze-Apalooza!

[More Update 2.0: These freaks won't stop! But hey, if your team is not on the list, has the wrong car (or blew up the right car) or is missing its website, tell us] As you had better know, the disfunctional sideshow known as the 24 Hours of LeMons is coming to the frozen tundra of Willows, CA this December 27-28. The deranged reprobates behind LeMons call it Arse-Freeze-Apalooza and as a survivor of last year’s event I can tell you first hand that the high was 37 degrees. But can you think of a better time to race? “Honey, it’s Christmas — me and the boys need to pile into the Odyssey and drive seven hours to go race the Sentra that’s been rotting next to Jimmy’s house since the Lewinski thing. I love you, bye!” December 26 is a practice day after all. Besides upsetting the baby Jesus (presumably) and your wife (most definitely), what makes next month’s race so damn special is the cars. Over 160 teams entered and 108 were accepted. You ever wanted to see a Peugeot 505 take on Geo Metra powered by a motorcyle engine? Or a 1966 Belvedere go at it with a TR7? Fiat X1/9 vs. ’69 Bug? Three Alfa Romeo Alfettas leaking different fluids at the same time? How about a 1996 Taurus SHO against a 1974 AMC Hornet? Audi 4000 and a Lada? And of course a certain 1984 Volvo DL (with some sort of Mustang engine) will be taking on the world. Jump for the (mostly) complete list of teams, cars and sexy websites. Update: thanks to some linky-dinkage by Judge Martin, new team websites are starting to pour in. So, jump and click ‘em.

(if any of you sucks get websites about your crap boxes built, send ‘em in and we’ll link ‘em)
