Murilee loves to wax about the scourge of Miserable Econoboxes infesting our shores during the Malaise Era. Turns out, a few of them skipped daily commuter duty and went straight to the track instead.

Our friends over at Petrolicious unearthed this gem of a race, and a few others like it, on YouTube. How many of these cars can you name, B&B?

The Real Racing series will feature clips and entire races from years past. On occasion we will question you on the content of the video, but most times it will simply be part of a deceitful plan encouraging the B&B to whittle away their work hours while consuming shameful amounts of their employers’ bandwidth. Down with productivity!

    Great video! Makes me miss my '84 Jetta GLI. Rabbits are kind of the "one that got away" for me - I always wanted one badly, but never managed to own one. Just the great, great grandson, an '02 Golf TDI.

    I would have never thought a Gremlin would be so competitive. Huh ? !

    I wonder if any of these drivers made it to the professional ranks.

    The right way to watch this is to click the little gear at the bottom and set the speed at 2X. A lot more fun and takes half the time. It looks like a riot and that Gremlin driver is my hero.
