18Crazy crash at LeMons race caught on camera

This video from the 2013 Halloween Hooptiefest 24 Hours of LeMons race is the kind of scary stuff that keeps us reviewing cars instead of racing them. This driver is puttering about, carrying good speed and, from the brief recording we can see, driving quite well. That is, until another driver, who seemingly comes out of nowhere, attempts to put his front tire where the passenger seat should be.

19Upside-down Camaro debuts in LeMons race

The man who, on the internet, goes by the name Speedycop has unleashed his latest crazy contraption on the racing masses at LeMons: an upside-down Camaro. Speedycop, self-described as "an eight-year-old kid trapped in a 40-year-old body, with just enough talent to pull off my wacky ideas," fashioned this beast out of the sordid carcasses of two vehicles, "a wretched 1990 Ford Festiva and a horrible 1999 Chevy Camaro."

15The Homer to contest 24 Hours of LeMons

It's finally happened. A 24 Hours of LeMons team has built the definitive interpretation of The Homer from The Simpsons for competition in an upcoming race. As you may recollect, The Homer is the fictional car designed by Homer Simpson for his brother's car company. Designed with a separate compartment for screaming children and other Homer-centric goodies, the animated machine bankrupted its parent company and put Homer's brother out of a job. Now we get to watch it race other crap cans as it t

13Spirit of LeMons car-plane and the policeman who built it

The Internet hasn't made the world any more zany, but it has made it easier for us to share our communal zaniness. That's how it's come about that a newspaper in England has led us to a man in South Carolina who turned a Cessna into a car. The 27-foot Spirit of LeMons is a 1956 Cessna 310 body laid over a Toyota minivan chassis, originally built to compete in the 24 Hours of LeMons race in South Carolina. When the racing was done, its builder, Jeff Bloch – a.k.a. Speedycop – and The

19Watch James Glickenhaus pace LeMons race in his Ferrari P4/5

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 hi

1The List goes racing on Speed tonight at 10PM EST/PST... honest!

Remember last Tuesday when we told you that a new episode of The List was going to air on Speed that night? Yeah, well... sorry about that. Scheduling snafu. But Autoblog's series is back on network television tonight after a week off for special programming.

AddThe List goes racing on Speed tonight at 10PM EST/PST [UPDATE]

This week's episode of The List on Speed brings together two episodes of the series that highlight some unique forms of four-wheeled competition. The first is the 24 Hours of LeMons, in which hosts Jessi Combs and Patrick McIntyre, compete on a team that dredged the depths of British automotive history to find their race cars.

13Cor-Vegge puts veggie oil to the Corvette test at LeMons

There might be only one veggie-powered Chevrolet Corvette in the world, and it's part of the 24 Hours of LeMons endurance racing series that showcases $500 beater cars. "Spank," the owner and builder, has pieced together the Cor-Vegge on a a C4 Corvette body, powered by a 1980s Oldsmobile diesel engine and fueled by waste vegetable oil.

9This is why LeMons is the best race series

This weekend, Audi marked the competition debut of its latest R18 race cars at the second round of the World Endurance Championship at Spa-Francorchamps. Yet the most spectacular race car running on any track this weekend was thousands of miles away at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the 24 Hours of Lemons "Loudon Annoying" event taking place at the very same time.

28The List #0024: Race in the 24 Hours of LeMons

While we've already sent Jessi and Patrick to a professional driving school, there's no way their on-track training could prepare them for the the 24 Hours of LeMons.

2924 Hours of LeMons now welcomes driverless entries

In an effort to stay on the bleeding edge of old crap-bucket technology, the 24 Hours of LeMons has now created a prize specifically for autonomous vehicles. The X Ceedingly Bad Idea Prize will award one million shiny new nickels to the first team that manages to pilot an autonomous vehicle to a win. We assume that carries a caveat of not killing anyone in the process. As always, the vehicle itself can't cost more than $500, though the associated technological wizardry required to keep the drive
