Ok Makers here’s a fun one – we have a race team. We’ll have a LeMons car (the car is an Escort, but not the one pictured above) – but what we don’t have is a team name. This is where you come in, name our racing team! If we pick yours I’ll send you out some cool stuff for the Maker store and you’ll be part of history! Here are some names that were tossed around to get you started! These are examples only, don’t use these.

  • Driving Insane
  • Make: Dorks in Motion
  • Make: DIY Hard
  • The 88 Horses of Make (the car has a factory rating of 88hp)
  • The Crazy 88
  • Make’s e Do-it-Your-Own-Damn-Selfers
  • The Makequake
  • Make:Believe!
  • Make:Like a racecar

    Oh My God, two of my favorite things, Make and LeMons hoonage shenanigans! AWESOME! Anyway, I agree with Vulcanis, Warranty Void or Duct Tape and Paperclips sounds awesome. However, for the livery, I suggest copying my Forza car that I got frontpaged for back in August: http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2007/08/make_sports_car.html

    Of course, do it up in spraypaint, but I would be so pumped if my Forza spray had at least a little bit of inspiration for the Make LeMons hoonmobile.
