So, how many Bernal Dads does it take to remove the engine from a Volvo race car? Near as I can tell, it takes at least 10: Four to work on the car, and another six to stand around drinking beer while making impolite jokes about everyone else’s moms.

The deadline is firm, because on October 22, there’s a 24 Hours of LeMons race at Sears Point Raceway in Sonoma, and the Bernal Dads plan to compete — assuming they can get the new engine in the car in time. The good news is, they got the old engine out just last night:
But can they get the car ready in time? Stay tuned, race fans. (Insert joke about your mother here.)
