VEHICLE STORY

In early 2016, a group of nerds wanted to race in 24 Hours of LeMons. One happened across a used 1985 Golf in ok daily driving condition on Craigslist. $300 later, the car was brought home. After a few months (most of the work done my my friends, and in the last few weeks before the race), The 19th Hole was entered into the BFE GP LeMons race and placed 36/59 overall and 15/28 in B class. No trailer required, as this Golf is registered, passes emissions (somehow), and is $100% legal. The 19th Hole mostly sits in wait, hoping to not incur the wrath of the local HOA, being occasionally taken around Golden to show off and burn off gas before it goes bad.
