Have a Trabant? Want to have some fun with it? Bring it to a Concours d'LeMons show near you! The best part is, these shows are FREE, so you get exactly what you pay for.
the Concours d'LeMons is a snarky take on high end councours. Whereas they feature Delage, Bugatti and Duesenbergs, we feature Pinto's, Pacer's and yes Trabants. You can bribe the judges and a good time is had by all. Here is the latest press release from the super secret Concours d'LeMons headquarters...
Not content with ruining just one major automotive event a year, the 2014 Concours d’LeMons schedule has added two new shows featuring the Oddball, Mundane and truly Awful of the automotive world.
On April 27, 2014, a patch of paddock near the dumpsters at Road Atlanta during The Classic Motorsports Mitty vintage races will host crap cars from all over the southeast. Then on July 26, 2014, just one day before and right down the street from the Concours d’Elegance of America at St. Johns, hoopties of every sort will converge to showcase the worst ideas ever inflicted on the motoring public. Grassroots Motorsports Magazine and Hagerty Insurance have inexplicably sponsored this expansion of the Concours d’LeMons empire.
According to towing company records and court documents, the Concours d’LeMons has been dropping rusty car parts all over the Monterey peninsula during the Pebble Beach Auto Week for the past five years. Against the advice of our attorneys this show will be returning to the verdant goose fertilized lawns of Laguna Grande Park in Seaside, CA on August 16, 2014. Lauded by those with a sense of humor and reviled by the purists, the Concours d’LeMons takes a satirical look at the world of automotive concours. Bribery of the capricious celebrity judges is encouraged as they peruse entrants in classes such as “Rust Belt American Junk”, “Soul Sucking Japanese Appliances” and “Needlessly Complex Italian”. The highlight of the afternoon comes after the judges sober up enough to find and give away the coveted “Worst of Show” Trophy.
