The pristine, rusted and oddballs all come out to the Concours d’Lemons in Seaside during Monterey Car Week. Considered the ‘anti-elegance’ of the collector car world many of the entrants are laughed at, looked down upon, or long forgotten.
However, for some show entrants, these vehicles are well-loved, one-owner cars, personal art projects, or just a way to get around and that suits them just fine. In some cases, the more bizarre the car the better as was the case with ‘Sauerkraut’, a fake horse complete with a saddle for the driver atop a VW-powered contraption, who won ‘Worst in Show’.
The show is sponsored by Hagerty and judged by celebrity Wayne Carini from the television show Chasing Classic Cars.
