Re: Best of Lemons news and documentary videos!

I think this is one of the best videos I've ever seen for Lemons done by someone else. Such genuine enthusiasm, genuine respect, genuine enjoyment, genuine drama (without being reality-TV drama)... just really genuine... I know we always shit on auto jurnos but I gotta say these guys seem to be doing it mostly right:

Everyday Driver, 3 years of Lemons at The Ridge - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mipFoK3F0U

Also, btw, now I REALLY wanna race The Ridge! It looks hella sweet!

Caveat for us that love our series...suffer through their whining about the car for first 11-12 minutes.  They redeem themselves later.

LOL... yeah, their Automotive Journalist shows through pretty strong at the beginning and a couple of other places...

I gotta say, though, as someone who is incredibly happy racing a reasonably fast class-B car (and has nothing but admiration and respect for class-C racers...) a lot of their enjoyment of the Boxster resonates with me.

Agreed.

Remember: There's no catharsis without struggle.

Gotta love the #996 'Sardonic Subaru' just turnin' those laps in the background...

I thought this was worth watching....

Story of Eyesore Racing amazing Miata build...well done, and informative, concise, ....
Although a bit of just "How we built our car", as opposed to specifically about Lemons, but still has the Lemony feel

And now I have sinister thoughts of doing a cheap turbo set up on my 1987 Prelude like theirs, since the stupid thing has the iron block A20 engine (SOHC), and there are no kits for it, and I have no fabrication skills...
