Despite the best efforts of the Borders and Immigration Dept the Concours d’Lemons returned to Australia for the 3rd oil dripping year. The worst that the automotive world has to offer took to the gorgeous and historic Torrens Parade Grounds in downtown Adelaide, South Australia . Shannons’ Insurance showed up with their big rig filled with racing simulators, while vendors had good food and automobilia on offer for the crowds.  The owner of the Reliant Rialto that took home “Worst of Show” honor wished to remain anonymous, lest the world know his shame of owning such a terrible car.
