It began as an interesting, tongue-in-cheek race concept. It has since transformed into a visual spectacle of gaudy, over the top rice appliances and add-ons slapped together to create a rolling heap of crap. I wouldn’t classify a 22RE Celica as lemon capable. Rather than simply being any car that can be purchased and prepped for $500 it should also be necessary that the vehicle be of true, lemon lineage. The Cobra 2 counts, perhaps the Capri, maybe even the AMC stuff. However, where are the Renault, MG, early Alfa or Chrysler K cars (maybe they’re in there, I didn’t look at every last pic)? That would be enough to make lemon meringue to go along with your lemonade.
