Robert Cerame shocked the car collector world by taking home “Worst of Show” honors at the inaugural Amelia Island Concours d’Lemons on Mach 9, 2019 with his lemon yellow 1959 Edsel Corsair. Judges from other Concours scratched their heads and spectators marveled at how someone that thinks Edsel’s are cool could actually win a car show trophy. “What a great time, coolest trophy I’ve ever won, wait until you see my rusty AMC Pacer next year,” beamed Rod. Not only did Rod receive the much coveted sweat shop made Concours d’Lemons trophy but a car detailing prize pack from sponsor Meguiar’s, who figured an Edsel needs all the help it can get to look good. Rod saved money from his paper route and bought his dream car when he was 15 and has been driving it ever since. Always the frugal person, Rod has it insured with sponsor Hagerty Classic Cars.
