I see the Chevy Spectrum on the list.  Has the Chevy Sprint ever been done?  How about Chevy Nova circa '86-'88, especially the twin cam?

There was a Sprint at Texas World Speedway and I think we had a FWD Nova in the early days of Lemons.

CIMARRON!
t has been on my list since the very first day I made a list. I wonder how many of those were on that Cash For Clunkers list that showed up the other day. I should look.


I thought Florida Man did one??

The Cimarron has trophied in a Lemons Rally and at Concours d'Lemons. It's supposed to be getting the race car treatment, but it's almost too nice? Still, would be one of 2 (?) cars to trophy in all three Lemons events.

On the off chance you're thinking of my SAAB, I'll point out that although my racing 96 has race and rally trophies, it was instead my towing 96 that took a Cd'L trophy. I've since stripped and scrapped the tow car after realizing it had reached a condition that even I found to be too sketchy, so clearly the only remaining solution is to enter the race car in a show and hope for a favorable(?) outcome.

Re: Lemons Wish List - Everything Eric Has On a List

I see "Chevy Tracker" on this list but no "Geo Tracker" or "Suzuki Sidekick" or "Suzuki Vitara."

As these are all effectively, more or less, with some obscure differences, the same car, I was wondering if they are all sort of on the wish list. Asking for a friend. (This is y'all's cue to post a bunch of deep cut links to Suzuki Sidekicks running Lemons that I was not able to find on the internet).

The Kim Jong Elantra got a trophy at Concour d'Lemons a few years back (Best Asian entry, maybe), took 3rd in the CA Rally last year, and has won in class at Sonoma (twice). So, are we counted as one of the 2 (?) cars to trophy in all three Lemons events?

In the interest of furthering progress on this list, I am reluctantly willing to pass on the Merkur Scorpio to some other aspiring race team (aka unsuspecting fools)…
