The Aloine is the oldest Lemons car? Not by a long shot... (1) there is a 1937 Buick on this roster,

Even assuming that’s a ringer, I’ve driven an older LeMon while being passed by an older one still...

[Humber Super Snipe and Model T GT?]

A certain just postwar Plymouth, a Hudson, a Corvair with Jag bits also come to mind...

#111 Tradewinds Tribesmen VW Passat Inde ‘20... shhh, the Benz is napping!
#888-Hong Kong Cavaliers Benz S500: formerly known as OMG Racing #140...
Judges Choice and Regional Award winner! Chuckwalla '12, Buttonwillow '13, BFE GP '15, Miller '14 & '15, Sonoma '13,'14,'15,'17, '18. Inde '16,'17,'18,’19. Other foolishness: Finisher of Hell on Wheels (Jaguar) IOE (Humber)

The Borgward was a 59 or 61 (running changes, blah blah, that's how titles worked back then).

That guy

I think it has been accepted that the Model T has 1927 bits glued on a more modern car. The Snipe is a 58 or 62 or something like that. The current generally recognized as oldest car to run Lemons (and in painfully, bouncingly, slow original condition) is the 41 Olds. From the whispers I have heard, this 1937 Buick is pretty stock and will beat the Olds for oldest to run Lemons in painfully stock style.

Re: Yokohama Real Hoopties '21 of NJ Entry List & Tech Times

I'd really like to see the team win overall and IOE at the same event.  They have the stage set to do so.

Nice to see you here again, Neal!

It’s funny, my post is because I misheard punctuation... what I read was: “the oldest Lemons car of all time, a Sunbeam Alpine.” What he meant was to call attention to the Buick. Which I would agree is the oldest non-T hot rod yet.

The Buick Fireball 8 with its fancy OHV head is cheaty as hell compared to an Olds flathead. C’mon man!
