24 Hours of LeMons New Hampshire Preview: Vermin Supreme!

vermin_supreme
I don’t really have time to give a full preview of the 24 Hours of LeMons’Halloween Hooptiefest” at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend, though you can get the official-ish entry list right here. It should be a typically chilly weekend, but we can tell you that the members of the 24 Hours of LeMons Supreme Court are ebullient because they have convinced head-booted presidential candidate Vermin Supreme to act as the race’s grand marshal for Saturday morning.

Vermin Supreme’s main grand marshal qualification is that he already owns a sash, but unless The Powers That Be realize his potential to win over America and prevent him from showing up, you can expect Vermin Supreme to hang around for a bite to give a stump speech on his main talking points: time travel research, ponies for everyone, and mandatory toothbrushing.
As I said, I don’t have time for a car-by-car preview, but you can look forward to a 1952 Chrysler, a ‘73 Beetle with a 250-horsepower Honda V6 in it, a Rover P6B, a Buick/Opel/Isuzu, a turbocharged three-cylinder Saab 96, more great 3 Peda Mafia-ness, the crazy homebuilt Subaru-powered Chevette, and one masochistic team running both a Porsche 928 and a Peugeot 405. Sadly, there will be no Hooniverse Park Bench Racing Buick, but even the world’s best race car needs a rest from time to time. Here’s the link to the entry list for a second time.

    Looks like the Swedes are well represented at this race with all those Saab’s and Volvos.

    “…a turbocharged three-cylinder Saab 96…”
    Now I see what I’m doing wrong.

        I don’t see how the car is expected to get anywhere with the engine sitting in there sideways like that. It’s a 96, not a 92.
        That dealership sticker is amazing, though.

    The Buick won’t be racing. Will explain why tomorrow.
    :sad face:

      I’m guessing it has something to do with the picture where it’s missing a cylinder head. 🙁

    I’m on the West Coast, so not going to make the race, but this may be the wrap-up video I’ve most anticipated (and I knew I’d end up in two of them).
