This web site is devoted to the deveopment of our 24 Hours of Lemons car.
This poor little car was owned by a lady from lousinana that came to visit here daughter in houston apparently. While she was here the car caught on fire in the engine bay. She towed it to the closest shop to get an estimate and just told them they could have it after they gave her a quote for the repair. It sat there for a couple of months, when one of the guys who works there decided he would tackle the job and maybe swap in a V8. He took alot of it apart and then quicly lost interest. This is were we stepped in and found the car listed on Craigs list as a parts only non running 93 with fire damage for $300. We looked at each other and decided we were up to the challange. Never thought the challange would be this big though.
As of now the theme is going to be top gun. We are going to make the exhaust come out where the both taillights were and make them have afterburners with collapsable vegatable steamers. We are going to well on some small wings and ratle can the car like carzy. I know the name has nothing to do with top gun, but couldn't really come up with anything related, so we just went in a completely different direction.
OH it doesn't look so bad...........It's just missing a quarter panel.
Dear lord what the hell happened?! A nice fire under the hood of the car that destroyed the entire wire loom under the engine.
This is where he started taking things apart and then just abandoned the project.
This miata really was flaming. Ok well i thought it was funny.
We got it in and started taking everything apart. We have made a huge pile in the corner of the garage
Here is the start of our pile of stuff to sell off. We will be able to recoop alot of money from the parts like the airbags and the dash.
This mess of wires is what we get to deal with. Thankfully we got a hold of a wiring diagram and we only really need about half of them. The picture is blurry but that is about 40-50 wires in there. That is just one of the harnesses. We still had to make a fuse box since the stock one was burnt up and so that a fire doesn't happen again.
More has been done, but we have lives beyond this and that sucks. I will post more when we have time to take pictures.
