We’re all familiar with LeMons racing at this point. Many men in many different cars have won the title, but none have even pretended to do it in a 1966 Sunbeam Imp. $500 gets you a shell and a dream.
Pretend for a moment you don’t know anything about the flaming electrical wreckage of British motoring history. Such a flight of psychoactive fancy makes it considerably more palatable to consider this 1966 Sunbeam Imp as a shell to place all your LeMons racing dreams into. Just think about it for a moment; this tiny pimple of British throwaway automobilia is begging for a junkyard GM supercharged 3800 mounted midship, and we all know it.
Without malice or injustice, you could be Juan Fangio in your minds eye, blasting down the Mulsanne straight, burping out an obscene exhaust note at full chat in a POS that’s intent on killing you. You dive in and out of the rusted field gaining ground like a man possessed. Lesser adventurers would be embarrassed by their steed, but you’re a lesser man than they — an inner child released from the crushing world of TPS reports and action items. You are the distillation of motive joy.
And all it takes is buying this awful little British car. Do you see now how uncomplicated the world can be? — Detroit Craigslist
