Did you guys get it? I know some other people that were interested too.

No, apparently a team from Detroit was faster than we were.

Hi, thanks for posting this!

Have you figured out a way to quickly search FB Marketplace for the whole US?
Or did you spend the time changing zip codes and running the search several times?

Thanks

Re: Old Lemons Cars on FB Marketplace - All Over the Place

that Fiero was Deal of the Month!
the cage would cost you more than that

Re: Old Lemons Cars on FB Marketplace - All Over the Place

This is the 5 mile backwards (from someone who is also clearly learning it), but it isn't the right configuration that we'll be running.

I'm also probably going to post a how-to at some point for people with sim rigs to load it in assetto Corsa.

The latter. If you're smart about it and set the range to 500 miles, you can cover the country in 6-7 search areas. I searched by "24 Hours of Lemons," but you might also find use terms like:

"Lemons Car"
"Race Car"
"[Other Series Names...with the caveat they will need a pretty healthy review of their safety equipment]"
"Lemons Project"

Sounds annoying, but if you have the patience to deal with FB marketplace on desktop, that's 5-10 minutes of searching.

Ha, found some more using my own search terms.

1984 Ford Escort Wagon - $750 - Vacaville, CA - Would guess this one needs a thorough safety update; I think this one's from the very early days of Lemons. Also an A4 for $1000.

Tons of low rust opportunities to start a new build in Colorado.  Mustang, Miata, Thunderbird....so much crap so little time.
