One of the truly great things about a LeMons race is that the event is a celebration of all cars. We appreciate the fact that Lamborghini and Ferrari models get all sorts of fanfare throughout the year, but where else will you see a lowly Ford Fairmont cheered around a road track? Nowhere else, we tell you. The races are also an excuse for the lowliest of hardware to rub shoulders with high end metal. Take a recent event at Monticello Motor Club, for example. James Glickenhaus stopped in with his Ferrari P4/5, and organizers figured the creation was quick enough to serve as the race's pace car.

That's right. Glickenhaus actually put his unique P4/5 on the same track as a bunch of heaps held together with bailing twine and beer-fueled optimism. We would wager his machine is worth approximately five times as much as every competitor's vehicle on the course combined. Yes, that's awesome. You can watch a video of the Ferrari P4/5 serving as a LeMons pace car in the videos below.

      That car was epicly beautiful in person. The camera doesnt do it justice. However, I was really hoping he\'d run it a little harder, but even at just above idle, it sounded awesome. Not that you could really hear it over 120+crap cans. Why it was at our LeMons race, who cares?

      Haha. Wouldn't the pace car be the car in front, filming the P4? Either case Glickenhaus is kewl for doing that.

        It has Ferrari badges and bones. Only the skin (looks) is not designed by Ferrari, yet still based on older Ferrari race car.

        Ferrari gave permission for Glickenhaus to badge it "Ferrari". If they say it's OK, I guess we can call it a Ferrari too.

        Absolutely 100% with you. I think Jim's car is just stupid-crazy beautiful. True coach building is a dying art and and I'm really happy somebody still does it.

      Glickenhaus is awesome. by the way, 120 $500 cars= $60,000/... so in fact, its probabably more like 60 times as much as every car on the field combined.
