    Ah cool, so that was your wagon I saw out there! That Homer car was damn fast, and the favorite of the race. I on the other hand, had the joy of rebuilding a Merkur 2.3L engine on Friday night after we blew a piston on our 2nd(!) testing lap. We finished up at about 3:30am and caught a few winks before the start of the race on Saturday. Good times!

    Number 339, it's a white '89 Mekur XR4ti that we decorated to look like a Mercury-Redstone. In addition to the engine rebuild, we had to buy a new tranny cooler and plumb it in because we stripped the radiator fitting, we fought severe pinging under boost, plugged a fuel leak at the filler neck, fixed a cooling system that wouldn't pressurize, blew our intake hose...

    I'd say we got a pretty good lemons experience.

    Haha yeah sounds appropriate for Lemons. The Homer blew 4th gear on Saturday so they replaced the transmission overnight.
