2011 Concours d’LeMons Worst of Show Winner Scott King and Sandy Edelstein’s 1988 Cimarron by Cadillac

Scott King found this wonderful Cimarron in the wilds of Palm Springs and knew it was a shoe in for honors at the 2011 Concours d’LeMons. Complete with landau vinyl roof, gold badging and dealer installed Rolls Royce-eque grill, this low mile, pristine example took the very coveted Worst of Show award on Aug, 20, 2011 at the palatial Laguna Grande Park in Seaside, CA. Marketed as the “Cimarron, By Cadillac” by dealers embarrassed to call this tarted up Cavalier a real Cadillac it offered none of the features that a typical Cadillac buyer would want. It was small, not very luxurious, had a 4 cylinder engine and cost nearly twice as much as the Chevy Cavalier it was badge engineered from. 23 years later everything works on this example, right down to the vacuum tube readout dash and Bose stereo. For all of those reasons, and the fact that Scott had some great bribes for the judges, it takes the 2011 Concours d’LeMons Worst of Show.
