PPCO Twist System

Grassroots Motorsports is celebrating their 25 anniversary by offering a digital issue available to everyone. Packed in this special issue are a couple articles that are near and dear to our enthusiast hearts, including the top 25 cars of all time, and a special tribute to the 24 hours of LeMons.

To get access to the digital version of the magazine, simply follow this link, provide your e-mail address, and you’re on. Once you’re in, discover what the editors of Grassroots taps as the top 25 cars that have defined their scene, or as David Wallens wrote within the piece, “Our group tends to side with cars that handle: low, responsive and glued to the road.” it really is no surprise that the Mazda Miata and the BMW 3 Series made the list, but there were some unexpected entries contained within the article, of which you will have to discover for yourself.

However, it was Nick Pon’s article that really peaked my interest. Many of you already know that Nick is an important member of the 24 Hours of LeMons operation, always at the side of Jay Lamm, creator of the series. Nick is ever present at each event, camera at the ready, and is one of the many people in the background who keep the event running smoothly. He also pens articles for a number of magazines while working within the Drivers Door, so you could say that he’s a Renaissance Man. Back to the subject at hand, the article that I’m referring to is titled “Revenge of the Turds.” and it is a must read for anyone who has competed in a LeMons event, or is thinking about getting involved in one.

Worst Fix: the Kudzu Kommandos: Carolina 2009

Contained within the article is a “feature within a feature” in honor of the third anniversary of the 24 Hours of Lemons in which Jay Lamm chooses his favorite trios from the race. The categories include the Three Best Fixes ever, the Three Worst Fixes ever, Three Teams with the Right Attitude, Three Tales of Sportsmanship, Three of the Best Penalties and more. However, my favorites include the three best car themes, the three most spectacular team outfits, the three cars that totally sucked, and others. Read my full posting at Automotive Traveler, when it goes live this weekend.

    Great article, Nick. I'm proud to have been a part of LeMons since almost the beginning. Lame as it may sound, forming and running my own LeMons teams has been one of the proudest and most fun things I have done in my otherwise vanilla life.
