Default 24 Hours of Lemons Official Update Thread

Hi all.

I'm sure most of you have heard about this race coming up this weekend - www.24hoursoflemons.com . It's a 24-hour race for cars only costing $500.

We're competing and I know of at least two/three other teams that are on NASIOC - one of which is in a Subaru Impreza.

Maybe I can get them to post info about their car and the build.


Our team is called the Dukkaidos of Ginza (we envisioned a Japanese version of Dukes of Hazzard).

We have a 1988 Acura Integra with the full Dukes of Hazard livery. I know, this thread is worthless without pics, but the car is in the bay area undergoing it's final prep.

We'll be posting updates and some more pics later in the week once the car is almost finished, then some during the event hopefully too.

Eli

I for one, can't wait for updates on this ridiculous event and it's equally ridiculous entries !! I regret not having pulled a team together from here (New Mexico, the land of disposable cars) Good luck to all that make it. Watch out for the wierdos in wigs, and the chicks with pick-axes. Cheers

If anyone wants to be our mechanic, we really need someone who knows an Acura motor. We will pay for food, beer, entry to the pits obviously, etc.

contact me if you'd like to have a bad ass time and are handy with cars!

This looks like such a fun time. To bad I'm pretty much useless with most cars when it comes to massive roadside repairs.

My buddies and I are driving up to spectate. We hope to enter the ass freeze event in October, with an integra we hope to purchase today!


Eli--my brother and friend (who are coming) have done quite a bit of work on hondas. I'll talk to them about helping out.

Good luck Eli. I was trying to get a team going with some other guys but it didn't happen. I plan to do it next year though.

Sounds like fun. I'll have to keep my eyes out for an appropriate POS car. Where can you find the rules?

Nevermind, found them on the website listed. Duh.

Hey, are you the "914 guy" I sold my white Sparco racing suit to on Ebay? We exchanged some nice emails, too.

This event sounds like a blast.

See you guys out there. We rolled in last night. Here are some pics of our car. It's a 1998 Subaru Outback. Gotta represent Subaru pride!
