The tempo is rare for a reason. Might not have enough supply let to be picky about drivetrain...

Lends a larger sense of urgency for the one that was a mere 30 miles from you about a month ago, eh?

More Lemons Wish List: Crappy GM Hatchbacks. You probably won't touch an Aerocoupe for Lemons money (CHALLENGE ISSUED), but you can probably make a perfectly Lemons one out of a hammered old V6 Cutlass.

What? No love for the '78 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon? Edit: Err, nevermind. Turns out these aren't hatchbacks oddly enough.

Re: Lemons Wish List

There's a Chevy HHR coming up for auction on Friday at my favorite tow yard. Anyone interested, I can proxy bid for you.

So far, I'm 3 for 6 on my purchases there: 3 reasonably successful purchases and 3 not-so-successful. Not lost $ on them yet, but not as great a deal as it seemed like initially.

Re: Lemons Wish List

There will be an HHR at this weekend's race @Autobahn....

The Supranos did run (and win IOE) a Toyota Corona....

And an Esteem.

FYI, the list goes back not far enough.  We brought a Dustbuster minivan specifically because it was on like a 2015 list.   Not regretted it...much.

Re: Lemons Wish List

Jensen-Healey has been done.  2 of them, one of which was driven by former Rush drummer.  Chrysler/Maserati TC has been done.

1990 RX7 "Mazdarita" 
1994 Jaguar XJ12 (Winner C-Class 2013 Sears Pointless)

And there has already been a Diplomat. Believe the theme was the PBR PD?

The BEST person to answer this would of course be Eric Rood, given that he seems to be the only person gifted with all the old data from the past 11+ years of Lemons.

Re: Lemons Wish List

I think I sent Maverick74 the spreadsheet a few years ago and he's clearly kept up with it. If anyone wants it, just email me. It's not a big secret or anything.

There's also a huge list of cars beyond DirtyDuc's "checklist." There are a lot of GM products left if you want to find a first-to-Lemons car.

I have a really bad habit of messing up transverse/longitudinal when I write about weird cars.

There was a Diplomat at one of the 2007 races, I was corrected on that. But that's ancient history and we need more Diplomats. And we especially need more Diplomats with steelies and 190/65R15 tires with a 900+ TW rating.

Wait, you have a spreadsheet!?

Err...I mean...yes...I too totally have a spreadsheet with this information. I totally haven't spent several years and countless brain cells memorizing the more notorious cars and races that have happened in Lemons like some deranged lunatic...
