The Concours d'Lemons: A Purposely Horrific Car Show, Filled with Auto Design No-Nos

The same organizers who brought you The 24 Hours of Lemons, an endurance race between shit-box cars, also has an answer to the Concours d’Elegance: The Concours d’Lemons.

This annual event is where you can witness such beauties as…

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

A stretch limousine Corvette;

A Volkswagen Beetle van conversion that takes the Beetle part very seriously;

A Gandalf-themed van called Vandalf;

A 1979 Ford Pinto station wagon, in Squire trim;

A 1988 Merkur XR4Ti that looks like it was art-directed by a pack of Marlboros;

The Dodge Rampage, a car-based pickup from the early ’80s;

A rare Yugo convertible;

Not to mention a “Half Assed, Half Car Detailing Competition” where you only have to clean 50% of the car, demarcated by blue tape.

Amusingly, “the whole debacle was sponsored by Hagerty Insurance and Classic Motorsports Magazine,” the organizers write, “so it is really all their fault.”
