Contact: 0439 801 135 29 September Concours d’Lemons Billed as the world’s worst car show, or more correctly a show of the world’s worst cars, and despite all efforts, it’s slipped past our border security and immigration controls, and is heading to Adelaide, South Australia for a second time in 2018!
This much talked about event (not in a good way), is back bigger and better, and in a new city centre location. Concours d’Lemons, certainly lives up to its slogan of “celebrating the oddball, mundane and truly awful of the automotive world”, and even goes so far as to thumb its nose at conventional shows by openly encouraging the bribing of its celebrity judges.
