Topic: Hithchiker's Guide to Lemons Rally

I'm considering a different approach to the Route Sucky-Suck Rally that puts me "in the shit," so to speak. That is, I want to follow Stefan Lombard's example from the very first Lemons Rally and ride along with you idiots, one car at a time. That lets me tell the stories that you fools undertake better by showing how stupid you are, rather than just telling everyone about it.

So what I really want to know is:

- Is anybody interested in carting my ass around for a day (or part of a day)?
- Do you have room for me (plus a carry-on-sized suitcase, a backpack, and a camera bag) for a day?*
- Do you plan to convoy/carvan with anyone else on the rally? That's a major sell because—so long as everyone is cool with it—it allows me to jump into a couple more cars.

That's pretty much it. If I have10ish teams (accounting for attrition) interested that have room, I'll probably go ahead with this plan. And I'll make you all (in)famous. Or as much as you can be from a Lemons Rally.

Re: Hithchiker's Guide to Lemons Rally

You can hop on with me if the car has passenger seats. But I’ll be solo so not really much of a story. Unless I end up moving that teams RX-7 across the country. Which I’m surre will at least will involve new and innovative swears.

Also the article better say more than “Mostly Harmless” when it’s published.

Team kuhlyq can take any day of trip. As long as we're up an running. Don't care to be famous tho. But I do I have a very good looking face. Lol.

Re: Hithchiker's Guide to Lemons Rally

If Team Dee Oh Gee can get a car up and running in time you are more than welcome to tag along. We will more than likely have a dog with us just in case there is another Waffle House waffle eating contest.

Re: Hithchiker's Guide to Lemons Rally

Sure, why not? There's a fair chance the car will be ready as soon as I finish working on the abomination that passes itself off as its transmission.

My copilot just bailed on me so I should have an available seat in my 1991 Mercury Capri Convertible. I plan on picking up a buddy when/if it makes it through Oklahoma City and he'll be riding as far as Vegas. You're welcome to join me at some point along the trail.

Let Paul Andi see how much room we have left in General Roscoe after we play Tool Tetris.  If so you are welcome to ride with us as long as you stand it. Team name is One's Fast and One's Furious.

Re: Hithchiker's Guide to Lemons Rally

Hey Eric, you are more than welcome to tag along with Michele and me in the Roadmonster. I think our very loose plan is to caravan with at least two other Roadmaster Estates for at least some of the rally. How's that for noncommittal? We will have plenty of room in the 8-passenger wagon with only two people and a few bags.

He would be able to get some sweet rolling shots of the other cars back there. I've heard from Hollywood camera types that the Roadmaster/Caprice wagons are sought after by film crews because it's one of the few vehicles that legally allow them to ride back there facing backwards to shoot.
