Autobarn is donating a 1989 GTI and it will be driven in a race called “The 24 hours of Lemons” which is a take off on the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans. Part of Dempster Street will be blocked off and this ratty old car will be in the street where Evanston kids will be painting this car as the YEA! entry into the race!
From the LeMons website, www.24hoursoflemons.com.
“Twelve hours into the race, the car voted People’s Choice is called in and awarded a cash prize; simultaneously, the car voted People’s Curse is called in and summarily destroyed. At the end of 24 hours, a gala awards ceremony plies the survivors with trophies, plaques, and four-figure purses in canvas bags full of nickels. What’s not to like? “
