2018 Concours d'Lemons Down Under, SA
King William Rd, Adelaide SA 5000, Australia
29 September, 2018 (10:00 AM - 03:00 PM)
It's the world's worst car show, or more correctly a show of the world's worst cars, and despite all efforts, it’s slipped past our border security and immigration controls, and is heading to Adelaide, South Australia for a second time in 2018!
This much talked about event (not in a good way), is back bigger and better, and in a new city centre location.
Concours d’Lemons, certainly lives up to its slogan of “celebrating the oddball, mundane and truly awful of the automotive world”, and even goes so far as to thumb its nose at conventional shows by openly encouraging the bribing of its celebrity judges.
Open to vehicles of all types, the Adelaide public will be subjected to some zany examples of questionable engineering and roadworthiness, as owners fall all over each other to win $2 recycled trophies in categories such as “Needlessly Complex Italian”, “Rueful Britannia”, and “Der Self-SatisfiedKrauttenWagen” to name but a few.
The low-point of the day, will be the public humiliation of the winner of the “Worst of Show” award, presented by our zany host, American journo, Alan Galbraith!
