Dorkbot SoCal 29 - Make:Way Team gets 33rd Place

Hear the gut-wrenching tale of four plucky men and a crappy car who
made a foolish fantasy into a foolish reality!
Earlier this year, Make: magazine agreed to sponsor Jason Torchinsky
in fielding an entry into the 2008 24 Hours of Lemons motor race: an
endurance race for cars valued at $500 or less. Jason gathered the
best people in the field of enough free time and some interest in
racing a shitbox: Tom Jennings, Brett Doar, and Sloan Fader. A 1993
Ford Escort LX was purchased for $300, and the work began.
In the end, The Make:Way car came in 33rd out of nearly 90 entries-- a
far better result than ever hoped for. Come see what the team did, how
they did it, and see the 33rd-place-winning car itself!
