The 24 Hours of LeMons also boasts plenty of cars that never, ever belonged on a race track in the first place. Minivans, stretch limousines, hearses, Grandpa's old Eldorado, 50-year-old antiques, rolling sculptures, ill-advised engine swaps, you name it—all are encouraged to get out on the track with the "serious" racers in their BMW 325s. Some slide-rule-and-pocket-protector-enabled teams pack tens of thousands (or, in the case of the amazing Angry Hamster motorcycle-engined Honda Z600, hundreds of thousands) of dollars in engineering expertise into their $500 cars, and the employees of quite a few well-known race shops—Pratt & Miller and Hennessey come to mind—have entered cars packed with their hard-earned racing voodoo. How about a LeMons car that's decades older than the crowd, fits right in with LeMons' absurdist ethos, and goes toe-to-toe with the quickest machinery on the race track? For that, you need to talk to some wild-eyed American rodders.
