Jess and Audra had the fabulous, amazing and incredible experience of driving at a 24 Hours of Lemons event at NJMP (Yokohama Real Hoopties of NJ!!), courtesy of Garage Heroes in Training. The whole team includes Bill Fischer, Vicki Fischer, Jen Skripchuk and Jess and Audra as they discuss the day, the cars, the atmosphere, THE CAR and all of their experiences from day 1 of this 24 Hours of Lemons event.
Kathy and Audra interview Jonah Delgenio, a longtime car enthusiast who talks to us about the history of harlequins (Volkswagen that is), the history of oval track and a bunch of other racing venues. In 2012, Jonah found Lemons and has been racing with Lemons ever since. Like many others we have talked to, he expounds on the kindness and camaraderie that you find at Lemons. We also find out that Kathy never saw snow until she was 15!! Jonah has a well-rounded spirit of competition, beginning with BMX biking and currently to “not CrossFit” workouts/competitions. He is impressively and hilariously connected to track owners and makers of world-challenge cars. And believe it or not, Kathy met him at the gym.
He has some seriously great stories that we will not ruin by mentioning here. So please listen to hear all about Jonah. You won’t be sorry, we’re not! We loved this interview. You can find Jonah and his team on Facebook and Instagram under Monkey House Racing.
The ladies sat down for an interview with the amazing talented gentlemen of meetyourheroes.tv. Sterling Vernon, Richard Viard and Larry Levin produce a wonderful YouTube series that features matching car people with their dream cars while hearing their stories along the way. We get some inside information on how their show is created; including some interesting information about La Nuit americaine (you budding filmmakers need to know about this). We hear about their dream cars. As an added bonus, we had a great conversation with some great tips on taking good photos of cars. We found out that if you say it, you must do it. It’s life changing. And, you may recognize one of our own in an upcoming episode.
