For Participants

(Assuming your car makes it.)

Judges / Judging

Guaranteed to be unprofessional, inattentive, capricious, and subject to bribery. (Liquor and food seem to be favorites.) Satisfactory bribes will earn the “Ribbon of Dishonor,” to be placed on the car’s windshield. Don’t like their decisions? Check your ticket–you’re at the wrong car show.

This year the Concours d’Lemons has suckered several automotive world luminaries into being Guest Judges. They risk their reputation, you get to hobnob with bigwigs, everyone has a good time.
