A Wayne's World AMC Pacer would be nice to see at Lemons.

If it moves and shouldn't, use Duct Tape.
If it should move and doesn't, use WD-40.
If those don't work, its BROKE!

Worst case sceneario the little miata can use this to make the turns faster by just grinding along on the inside.

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

Scirocket Racing has about a hundred themes in our theme bank. We're actually considering auctioning some of them off for charity as we seem to be blessed with more than we could possibly ever execute. God love my unbelievably creative teammates!

If you are desperate, email me. I will give you a theme with full plans for execution and all you will have to do is get it installed. We have car-specific themes, general themes, you name it. We went through about five just trying to pick one for American Irony. By the time LeMons rolls back into Chicago/South Haven, we will probably have gone through another 40.

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

I sat in the car at a SEMA show a few years ago....it has about 2-3 inches of free play in the steering....the curator/restorer was there and he said it's exactly as raced....Al Unser jumped in and just shook his head...it's the original LeMon! Guys like Harroun had the stones...

^^^ Now THAT'S a great theme.  A tall lexan box with a mechanized waiving pope would be epic.  Add a few anti-abortion bumper stickers and you can't lose.  The car number could be "3:16".

I would love to see an FSM car. Prophet Bobby Henderson would be pleased.  Pasta, beer volcanos, midgets, pirates, and strippers. It's already got the necessary elements for a Lemons car.

Something more ambitious and less stylish than this...

Yes. A car with noodly appendages would be epic. I'm not sure I could convince my team of this though.

World's first rearview mirror!

The rules stated they had to have a mechanic ride shotgun to tell them whenever someone was trying to pass. They mounted a mirror and convinced the judges it was a better idea than having a passenger. The weight savings gave them the win.

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

Has anyone ever done an Austin Powers or Fat Bastard theme?  Find an old XJ6, paint a union jack on it, drop in a SBC and you've got your Lemons Shaguar!  Maybe some of you young guys who are a part of the import tuner crowd can get some NOPI models to be Fook Yu and Fook Mi.

GVWR is not race weight. Jay grants waivers if he knows you'll make the car safe, and drive it properly. You could get a limo that size down to 4500 pounds easy, if not less. Also, that's not much longer than our Caddy, and would be lighter as-raced.
