When life gives you LeMons…

This weekend Charlie and his coworkers are participating in a race of clunker  junkers known as the 24 hours of LeMons.  From an outsiders perspective the whole event seems like an excuse to spend two weeks dismantling a car culminating in a weekend of racetrack-testosterone-filled-fun.  Charlie explained all the rules to me, which can be found here, but the main one is that the car can’t cost more than $500.  So I assume the biggest goal is just to have a car that can run for two days straight.  48 hours is a lot to ask of the dubious jalopy Charlie will be driving.  The proof is in the pictures.
