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.

Billetproof

After 21 years, Billetproof is going Down(Under)! This an event for traditional style hot rods, customs, lead sleds, choppers and cafe racers, built before 1965, as well as drag cars, classics and street machines built before 1980. For our first event outside the USA, with the help of our partner, the National Motor Museum, we’ve been allowed to take over the Torrens Parade Grounds (right behind Government House), in the heart of downtown Adelaide. The event will be sharing the grounds with it’s sister event, Concours d’Lemons Down Under, an eclectic gathering of vehicles, that under normal circumstances, wouldn’t get a second glance!.
