Lieberman: LeMons Bloggin Madness II

Not to steal Sajeev's thunder, but there's already a TTAC team member competing in The 24 Hours of LeMons. Me! Come May in Altamont, California (pleased to meet you…) myself, Jalopniker Murilee Martin, Dubspeed Driven's Jack Baruth and a bunch of hot rod builders will be trying to go the distance in a V8olvo. That's a Volvo DL with a Ford 302 HO shoved into it. Murilee and I spend countless hours (and I'm not kidding — countless) arguing over which car to get. He was gung-ho over Datsun Zs while I wanted the torquey V8 goodness from a first generation Q45. Then a $100 Volvo materialized and the rest will one day be history. Assuming I can find a pair of fire retardant underwear. One last thing, our car will be rattle-canned black and feature the ability to blast death metal down the main straight. Sponsorship opportunities abound…

    Seriously, there's a reason Quattro was banned from -World Rallying Championship -Trans-Am -IMSA GTO -BTCC -DTM Need I go on? When the track gets slick, and the V8olvo can't out its power down, and the Lincox's mass pushes its continental spare tire kit sideways into the wall, my Quattro will triumph once again. And if you vote to have my Audi crushed, I will drop a precision guided munition on your car. I have the power to do it!

    Ha! quattro is spelled with a lowercase q! You therefore lose.

    Touche! And as a former Quattro, and current quattro owner, I should know that!

    Mike Solowiow: Are you kidding? We also have a 1984 Quattro 4000s. Meet team Quattro Libre PS - Can you spare a power brake booster? PPS - The Quattros should do really well (if it snows).
