From France to Fontucky- Shock and Awe LeMons in a 404

So, you doing anything this weekend? How about driving over to Fontana and picking up a ratty but seemingly complete ’68 404? With an out the door price of only two Benjamins, and a seller who might take even less, your LeMons fantasy could become a brie-infused reality by Saturday afternoon.

Not many LeMons teams have the boules to run something this old, and this gallic, so you’d score some points for originality. Also, I have it on good authority that the judges happen to like both French cars and French wine. They also hold French Maids in high regard, but the less said about that the better. In case some of you are making dismissive motorboat noises with your pursed lips and shaking your head in disbelief that a 404 is anything other than a sedate form of transportation for petulant Frenchmen, check out some real 404 action from Bring a Trailer:

The 404 originally came with a 1.6-litre OHV four cylinder, good for 80-bhp. Disk brakes were made available in ’68 so all that horsepower can be reined in, and off-track excursions can be minimized. The Pininfarina body will guarantee you being the most stylish team on the track or in the pits, so what’re you waiting for? Fontucky is calling you!

    Question – why is this 404 fenced in? Look closely at the pictures….did the owners think it would escape?\\
    Also – the ad next to this is a all about the joy of $10,995 Aveo. Think – Aveo-Joy-Hooniverse. There's a joke in there somewhere.

      To keep hoons out, probably. Most of us dont know how to bypass knee-high fencing around a 404.

    Everyone knows:
    1) Squirrels are smarter than fences
    2) The North American Gray, Red, and Black squirrel hate Peugeots and have boycotted them since someone found out what the non-orange part of "écureuil a l'orange" was.
    PS – the new ad next door tells me a Malibu is $10,000 more JOY[ful] than an Aveo. Is this a trick question?
