There has been a lot of discussion about choosing a theme for the car and team. It seems this is highly scrutinized and a team must have a pretty outrageous and/or funny theme to be granted entry into the secret club that is 24 Hours of LeMons Racing.
While we were “working” on the car most recently, we discovered a striking conincidence. Behold:
A sponsorship from the Heileman Brewing Company might be in order given the striking similarity between the Civic’s color and the labels of a Stag bottle!
Thanks Chris for the “inspirational elixir!”
Here’s an “Action Shot” of some of our car preparation session!

One exciting development is that we’ve found a parts vehicle to compliment this one. A similar vintage Civic DX hatchback. We should be acquiring this in the near future…photos to follow. It’s funny how “parts cars” can be worth more than the primary sometimes…But seriously, there will be a spare radiator and fans, shocks/struts, wheels, fuel pump, calipers and rotors, and the list goes on.
The car we have seems surprisingly solid to this point. One of the problems we feel the need to fix can be seen in the photo below. The thermostat housing is cracked and in need of replacement. Will this hold up for 24 hours, as is? Oh probably. However, we can’t leave “broke enough” alone. Score another point for the parts car!
It’s getting closer to “go time,” so check back often as we’ll certainly be doing more prep on the car. Whether or not it gets documented is another question altogether…
