The Finest in Automotive Folly! 2016 Concours d’LeMons [Gallery]

Amid all the four-wheeled fabulosity of Monterey Car Week, the Concours d’LeMons stands out as a breath of musty, foul-smelling air. The dirty, the rusty, and the decrepit are celebrated here—making it a necessary ballast against the gleaming perfection elsewhere on the peninsula. Plus, it’s held at a public park—and there’s no admission fee, thus making it well worth your time.

Before even entering the show, our eyes were accosted by a Humber Super Snipe wagon and a chop-top Rambler, participants on the Tour d’LeMons—which is much like the Tour d’Elegance for the Pebble Beach cars. Except different.

“Bratworst” was a BMW with a secret weapon.

We recoiled at a crusty mid-1980s Cadillac Eldorado for sale ($1000) at the curb and wondered as to the nefarious purpose of a double-decker London bus with its doors open and no one inside.

But it is to the show field that we invite you to come along. We concentrated on the vehicular lowlights, shooting until—fittingly—our camera died. Or maybe it just couldn’t take any more. Click through to the gallery to share in the misery.
