The 24 Hours of LeMons beater-car racing series has had quite a few theme-based cars throughout the years. Whether it be an ‘Animal House’ Deathmobile, the ‘A-Team’ van or even the Spirit of St. Louis, if it was a car….and not a plane. But this week, the incredible has happened, the brilliant even, this week someone had the sheer genius of re-creating ‘The Homer’!

 

The Homer in all it's glory

The Homer in all it’s glory

For those who don’t know, in the early years of The Simpsons (Season 2, Episode 15, don’t you judge me for knowing that!), Homer found his long-lost brother, Herb Powell who at the time owned a car company in Detroit. Well Herb asks Homer to design a car for him, a car that real Americans would like…..and well, it’s Homer, it was hideous and stupid and ended up bankrupting Herb.

But despite that Kris Linquist, a member of Porcubimmer Racing decided it would be a good idea. They have made it just like the show, as Homer said ‘All my life I’ve searched for a car that feels a certain way, powerful like a gorilla, yet soft and yielding like a nerf ball, now at last, I have found it.’

 

Not sure which is more disturbing, the car or Marge

This car has a bowling ball hood ornament, a bubble-top back seat, a roof-mounted air horn that plays ‘La Cucaracha’, it really is too hideous for words, but so brilliant at the same time. I hate motor racing, but even I may tune in to this just to see ‘The Homer’ drive away.
