THE VIRTUALLY AWFUL CONCOURS d’LEMONS

 

July 6, 2020, Pebble Beach, CA – Not content to ruin the world’s most prestigious in-person Concours, the Concours d’Lemons lowers the standards of virtual car shows with the Virtually Awful Concours d’Lemons. Hosted on the Hagerty Community website (https://community.hagerty.com/t5/concours-d-lemons/bd-p/concours-dlemons) the Virtually Awful Concours d’Lemons is open to all oddball, mundane or truly awful cars worldwide. “Now folks that didn’t live near one of our in-person events, or had cars too butt terrible to make to the show can participate,” mused self-proclaimed Concours d’Lemons “Head Gasket” Alan Galbraith. “We are thankful that our sponsors, Hagerty, Classic Motorsports Magazine, eBay Motors and Griot’s Garage get the joke and have made it possible for us to take this low rent debacle online.”

Entrants can post pictures or video of their hoopties online to be reviewed by the capricious celebrity judges. Entries close on July 20, 2020. “Our judging corps is a who’s who list of the automotive, entertainment and general miscreant world,” gushed Chief Judge Tim Suddard of Classic Motorsports Magazine, “We were thunderstuck when AC/DC lead singer, Brian Johnson, agreed to judge. Singer John Oates made our dreams come true and joined car design legend Peter Brock, Dead Kennedy’s lead singer Jello Biafra, NASCAR Hall of Fame Crew Chief Ray Evernham, Formula 1/Indy driver David Hobbs, Amelia Island Concours Chairman Bill Warner and Hagerty CEO McKeel Hagerty as judges.” The complete list of people that had nothing better to do and were tricked into judging can be found below.

Once selected, winners in classes like, Needlessly Complex Italian, Rust Belt American Junk and Rueful Britannia (see complete list below) will receive a $300 eBay gift card and car care products from Griot’s Garage. The top honor, Worst of Show, receives a $1000 eBay gift card and a Griot’s Garage detailing kit. “The Virtually Awful Concours d’Lemons is the first car show in history where the awards are worth more than the cars entered,” smirked Galbraith, “but then again, nearly anything is worth more than the cars entered.”

  What does it take to win Worst of Show at a Concours d’Lemons? Something like this is a good start. Take two Hondas, join the front ends together, leave the steering and drivetrain for each intact. That way you can drive it in either direction and crab it down the road, whether you want to or not. Worst of Show at the Concours d’Lemons California 2018. Owned by Randy Carlson of Aguanga, CA
