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 judges.
