For Sale:
the Track Pillagerz! 1999 Buick Lesabre!!!
This Endurance monster and crowd favorite has sat rotting for 3 years now, and with no dedicated team to run her anymore I've decided that she should go to a good new home.
Just what care are you getting exactly?
a Stock 1999 Buick Lesabre. Naturally aspirated 3800 Series II V6 that runs like a beast!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EY8mz-8mmUE (In-car Clip from summit Point 2010)
This car has won IOE; has held P1 in 2 Seperate Events for over 40 minutes a piece, and has Competed in 8 Lemons events with only one DNF due to the original factory Half-Shaft failing with no parts on hand and 30minutes left on Sunday.
Reliable. Reliable. reliable. RELIABLE. this car will give you maximum seat and track time for your money!
*the car is about 80% currently as it has not raced in an event since 2012, so some updates will be necessary to make it race ready. *
THIS IS NOT a TURN-KEY BUY!!
Now that i hope I have all of your attention; here's the Story;
we ran a streamlined crew of 4 people, and being funded by 2. Now that the head mechanic has sustained permanent spinal/neck/back injuries and lukewarm interest (I Mean... WHO WANTS TO RACE A BUICK?!) the car has sat, and sat, and sat...with half-done ball joints, Tech updates necessary like relocating and secondary Kill switches needed, and recent updates like an extra trans cooler, lowered(CHEAPLY) suspension and Dual-piston front Brakes, it wouldn't be hard for a newbie team to finish it up, re-theme it, and run all weekend with nothing but a few extra sets of brakes and half-shafts on hand AS-IT-SITS. I got a New Motorcycle and i need the space in the garage to park it.

What's it going to cost?
- Last Time this car was Fairly valued by Jay; it was considered "worth" about $200* (excluding safety equipment)
- Upgraded Camaro Brakes = $100
- Rollcage = $600 (originally cost us 800 but it might need an update, i haven't looked)
- 5-Point Harness from RJS; will need to be recertified = included
- Kirkey 17..18? "fat boy" Intermediate Road Race Seat w/pad = $150 (if you already have a seat or want to go in a different direction I'm happy to keep it)
- Generic 18x8.5" 5x115mm Wheels; has 245/40ZR18 All-season Rubber (wheels alone cost us $600; tires would put it north of $1,000 but hey they're well-used; consider this a steal @ $350.
- Optima Yellow-Top battery of unknown age/vintage = included
*I have a Poly-isolated roll-cage camera mount in the car; I'll leave it on there for $100 as that's what it would cost to buy; otherwise I'm pulling it.
Honestly, someone who wants to put in a little elbow grease with the rulebook, I'll throw in my expertise but the car's setup is pretty well dialed in, you can run over 2hours per tank of fuel and despite the age of the tires you could easily and cheaply get this car for pennies on the dollar of what starting from zero would take for at least one, if not two or even 3 races; and the Lemons staff would be elated to see this car back out there turning laps.
Looking for $1500 Total for everything. I lost the title but it's considered clean and still has stock emissions; you could drive this car to the event with a set of valid plates. Stock 16" wheels/tires are included;
One Thing I do Ask is that you do a little photo/video(you don't need to make a production out of it, but i would appreciate it) just seeing what you re-theme her to, where you take her, and how things go.
LeMons first race at Gingerman featured some classic performances from legendary LeMoneers, including the prelude to Speedycop's insanity.

Room is clean. convenient to highway, near some food options like McDonalds and Bob Evans. It sort of ends there. son was sick in the room and even after taking down the soiled linen ourselves was not provided with replacements despite their motto being "just ask" Bed was Highly uncomfortable to me, but small-framed wife said she enjoyed it. $140/night for this place and not half as nice as rooms going for much cheaper in the area. not worth it unless you're hell-bent on having a kitchen in your room with a stovetop. Left an article of clothing in the room by accident and was told by staff I'd have to arrange shipping and my own separate pickup at my own cost (upwards of $15-20) if I wanted it back when it's hardly worth $10 and they could've just bulk-mailed it in a softpak for under $5. Wife was even given the run-around about them being an 'extended stay america" when trying to call them and make arrangements for the clothing left behind. Trust me, I'm not trying to be cheap. This.Room.Cost.$140. I've been at sub-$100 hotels that would express-ship something so insignificant without the slightest hesitation. I would have rated it one-star but I've actually stayed at legit roach motels so, frame of reference, the hotel itself it OK but service is borderline terrible.
