It all comes together

So we reunited the engine and car yesterday. It’s been a long and difficult process resurecting this glorious piece of crap, but it was all worth it when we actually drove the thing down the street in true LeMons fashion.

Of course, before we drove it anywhere, we had to go through the appriopriate checks to ensure that it was safe.

  • Does every wheel have at least three bolts holding it on?
  • Is the battery secure?
  • Check the fuel system for wobble
  • Drivers seat adequate?
  • Does the car have doors?

At least three lug bolts in every wheel - check


Bungee cords for battery - check


Gas can tied down securely


Drivers seat - check - well, sort of. You can sit on it.

Well, four out of five isn’t too bad. Who needs doors anyway? So – here’s a couple of short videos of the first test drive.

    Love the way the video starts off with what sounds like a gun shot! Where the neighbors that P.O.d?
