Concours d’Lemons Michigan 2017 – Photos

Posted August 2, 2017 by Alan Galbraith in Photos

The sun was out and so were the Lemons for the 4th annual Concours d’Lemons Michigan. Last year we filled the parking lot given to us at the Inn at St. John’s so we moved the show onto the hallowed green of the golf course. This is the first time a Concours d’Lemons took place on the same golf course as the major concours we team up with. A record number of clunkers showed up to vie for our famous dollar store sourced trophies. Hagerty Insurance and Grassroots Motorsports Magazine risked court orders and public hearings to sponsor the event, so show them some love. And lets face it, if you are reading this, you need all the insurance and tips on how to race on the cheap you can get. Gil Pepitone took home Worst of Show with his over-restored 1976 AMC Pacer, because who does that to a Pacer?
