Topic: Best of: LeMons documentary videos!

Now that the season is over, and I can leisurely procrastinate all my repairs till next Spring, I just looked up all the various Lemons videos that I really liked, and here are my favorites, in case you are bored.  Not any "Race recaps", long GoPro videos, or "How we got our car ready for Lemons", but documentary, news types of videos that, I feel, really do a good job of describing what the whole Lemons culture is about....and I enjoy watching....

Feel free to add to the list.  Or comment....nothing personal....opinions...no offense taken...to each his own....I just thought there may be people who would enjoy watching them, especially people who are thinking of wasting money on this hobby and starting or joining a team...to know what to expect.

There may be a better way to post these links....so if you can clean it up, help yourself to make it more user friendly....I am not the most computer savvy person...

Enjoy!

Re: Best of: LeMons documentary videos!

I hadn't seen the french one before. It immediately became my favorite LeMons related video.

To see and hear Tsog making bacon and discussing the racing chops of the SIMCA AND for his words to then be translated into the french?

I had not seen this and I suddenly feel transported back t the eighties...not sure whose voice it reminds me of but the narrator had a very specific cadence and delivery method.  Interesting that he was more fascinated by the weather than a Midwesterner.

And LeMons needs more slide guitar as much as it need more cowbell so I approve of the music at the beginning.
