24 Hours of Lemons Wish List: Weird General Motors Hatchbacks

You may be unsurprised to learn that the 24 Hours of Lemons’ organizers own a soft spot for ungainly hatchbacks. In some cases, manufacturers just seemed to slap weird wagons, hatches, or other strange rear-window treatments to cars. Many different manufacturers were guilty of such things, but few did it so regularly as General Motors. […]

Hella Sweet Lemons Car of the Week: Dust ‘n’ Debris Plymouth Duster

The 24 Hours of Lemons’ organizers and correspondents often point out that the K-It-Forward Plymouth Reliant must be the worst car in Lemons history. In reality, it seems that any of Chrysler’s K-based cars could compete for that title. The ongoing tribulations of the United Partnership of Pentastar Racers’ Plymouth Sundance Duster, for example, remind […]

Hella Sweet Lemons Car of the Week: Silver Bullets Nissord 580SX

We wrote about this HSLCOTW on the Official Lemons Website Blog a few years back, but that post went down the Memory Hole when the Lemons Blog was banished to the dustbin of history.

24 Hours of Lemons Chicago 2018: The Winners and More!

We’ve thawed out from another frigid 24 Hours of Lemons race in the Midwest, an annual tradition that has usually signified the start of the racing season with races in Michigan.
