CLUNKBUCKET

Everything but the same old cars

Concours Photo Bonanza

While one will occasionally run into a Pinto at a classic car and hot rod show, or a Gremlin at a drag strip, these occurrences are relatively sparse. Convention is often the guiding rule over exception at your average judged car show. The first annual Concours d’ LeMons set out to change all that. While the rest of the Monterey Peninsula sipped on old fashioneds and attempted to keep errant caviar and endive hors d’oeuvres off their seersuckers, the unkempt masses drove onto the lawn for this revenge of the car nerds.

    If you have more, please share! I’d been looking forward to this for a while. Sadly, I am several time zones too far away for attendance to have been practical.

    Would’ve been there in my ’67 Ford Battle Wagon had I not been busting knuckles at the Buttonwillow LeMons race.

    Bravo, Mike! Great shots!

    The photo of “Bob” with owners is priceless.

    The only bad thing about this is that there is no show in Florida for me to participate in. I could bring my 330,000 mile Nissan Frontier pizza delivery truck, or my malaise-tastic 1985 Cutlass Supreme Brougham, or even my 1979 AMC Spirit! Sadly, my dreams of owning a communistically fantastic Zaporozhetz 968, Trabant 601, or Lada 2101 have yet to be realized. But, a man can dream…
