The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Meanwhile at Altamont

We're about halfway through the 24 Hours of LeMons, not to be confused with any haute-shaute French event: this is a race for cars worth $500 or less, not including the mandatory safety gear. Last year's inaugural event was won by Road & Track's Team Corsa Uber Fantastico in an '82 Corolla, completing a full 1189 half-mile laps, sort of, and beating out two groups of Frito Banditos, a team from "Eyesore Racing," and something called "Pirate Ninjas With Lasers" (which wore number 86½ for some reason).

Autoblog is attempting to live-blog the whole affair.
