What? Racing again already?

Although I've been silent about it here since Junior was serving as the team captain, the Margarita Neon is going to be at "Laissez les Crapheaps Roulez," the next running of the 24 Hours of LeMons, this weekend. The beloved Lockjaw (rusty neon racecar extraordinaire) will sit this one out, since it needs a fair bit of work to address issues from the last race.

No changes to the car, other than a new head gasket and much adjustment work to the valvetrain to try to prevent a recurrence of the issues the car had back in February. It'll be a lean operation this time-- one car, 5 drivers, no extra pit crew. Hopefully our new foray into technology will make up for that: we bought walkie-talkies and even a headset for the driver! (Yes, I know: welcome to 1960, about frickin' time, yadda yadda yadda.)

Pictures and updates may arrive sporadically based on cell-phone signal strength.
