Starting off the last weekend of July, I thought I would share some images from the 24 Hours of Lemons site taken from last weekend at Stafford Springs, Connecticut.
When was the last time you saw these types of cars competing with each other…. the correct answer is never, making the New England race practically unique. The variety of racers was astounding for such a small event.
And here is that 1963 Thunderbird at full tilt! Glorious to view, even better to competing against!
At the race, there were three Alfa Romeo Milanos, a Fiat 131, a Saab Powered Nissan Z, A V6 Firebird, a large contingent of Volvos, and not one but two Buick Regals.

Ah, look at that nice, tight suspension on that T-bird as it drunkenly slews around the corner. You need Dramamine to race that baby.Loading…
I approve of the 524td conversion! Oil burners FTW!!Loading…
I was surprised how much track time the Saab 96 and the Fiat racked up during the race. Both were monsters of the track.
That poor T-Bird, at least they were able to cross the checkered flag.Loading…
Apparently the Saab 96 was originally a V-4, but they swapped an old 3-cylinder 2-stroke into it. Still came in 26th overall!Loading…
