What color is a LeMon?

The car was ready to paint but there was still the overwhelming question of HOW to paint it. My initial instinct was spray paint, but that much spray paint plus prep would be timely and costly, plus the weather was getting cold and it would be difficult to paint. After making a few phone calls, I managed to find a local Maaco that was willing to give me a substantial discount on a paintjob in exchange for a partial sponsorship on the car! So, I got the "Presidential" paint job, which is their second tier of paint job. This is normally $599 plus prep, or close to $800 out the door. I managed to pay only $279 out the door which was a steal to say the least! I dropped the car off on a Tuesday and they had it done by Wednesday night!

Here it is all finished and on the way home:

I must say, for the price, the car looks GOOD ...almost too good.

The rambles of the ClubGP team as we prepare for the 24 Hours of Lemons.


What is the 24 Hours of LeMons? Each LeMons race is for cars purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of 500 dollars or less. Twelve hours into the race, the car voted People’s Choice is called in and awarded a cash prize; simultaneously, the car voted People’s Curse is called in and summarily destroyed. At the end of 24 hours, a gala awards ceremony plies the survivors with trophies, plaques, and four-figure purses in canvas bags full of nickels. What's not to like?
