It’s 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 yet AGAIN.

In a mistake that's sure to cost someone their job, we've been allowed to take over the Torrens Parade Grounds (right behind Government House), in the heart of downtown Adelaide for the 3rd Annual Concours d'Lemons Down Under on Sept. 28, 2019.

We'll have our usual thriftshop sourced trophies, allow bribing of the judges and all of the whacky categories to show off your heap.

The odd, weird, rare and just plain un-loved of the automobile world, will include Rust Buckets, Hoopties and Kobbled Together Kangaroo Karts, and the whole lot will share the lovely Torrens Parade Grounds with Billetproof Down Under, a gathering of traditionally styles rod hots and customs.

As usual, we're throwing in a whole bunch of other things to do, like free facepainting, balloon artist and other entertainment for the kids (and bored adults), food vans, and much much more.

Of course, we wouldn't dare charge you anything for this farce, so registration and spectator entry is totally free.
