In an email:
I am doing some picture research for TopGear Magazine, in the UK. We would like to feature a picture of your car, aka 'The Greatest Lemons Car Of All Time"! Please could you send me some high resolution images of it?
Finally! I've been waiting for Lemons to show up in TopGear for ages. I don't know how many scenarios the husband and I have bandied about:
- an epic IoE car with all three driving it (plus the builder, of course). This would, of course, be consistent with the current TopGear email.
- each host arrives to caged and safe (ie a seat, proper seat belts, brakes and tires etc), yet not fully operational Lemons gem three to four days before the race. With three other veteran Lemons drivers/wrenchers per host. And a list of pick and pulls. Let chaos commence.
- each host arrives as an 'Arrive and Drive' to teams that are only somewhat sorted... or seem only somewhat sorted (sChitroen, you would be a good example of this) and let chaos commence.
- the TopGear folks somehow field a team including the real Stig. Anywhere, anytime. That would be awesome.
I want want want Jeremy cussing down an E30 at Buttonwillow, or PBIR, or MSR-H, or anywhere, really. And I want to see Captain Slow meticulously pondering a mid-race Lemons fix. And I want to see Richard spinning out, coming to the penalty box, and having Jay hand him his buttocks on a platter.
Okay, I've gotten over-excited, they only asked for a picture for the magazine. But still!!!
