POSTPONED Concours d’Lemons Michigan 2020

The Inn at St. John’s, Plymouth, on a corner of the golf course that no one cares about. How fitting.

Concours d'Lemons brings Hoopties, Rust Buckets, Misfits, Mistakes and the worst of the automotive world to the Concours of the America's weekend in Michigan. The Concours d'Lemons Michigan will take place on July 25, 2020 at the Inn at St. John's. But hey at least we are on the property and on the green of a major concours. All of regular Concours d'Lemons hi-jinx will ensue, capricious judging, bribery, awful trophies and even worse cars. If you take yourself or your car very seriously, this isnt the show for you. Hagerty Insurance has has stepped in to add a shred of legitimacy to this farce so be sure to thank them for the laughs. The best part is that the show is free for participants and spectators, so you'll get exactly what you pay for.. Spectator parking is at Northville High School 45700 Six Mile Rd, Northville, MI 48168 and shuttle buses will run all day long to the Inn at St. John’s.

Vince and Lynn Anderson's cottage on beautiful Pleasant Lake, just northwest of Lapeer. Here's a link to a map: Mapquest Link .

The club is supplying the hot dogs, hamburgers, condiments, and paper/plasticware. You bring a side dish to pass, along with your own drinks, beverages, lawn chairs, swimsuits, towels, and water toys (i.e. sculling boat, if you're Rolf Schroeter!). We have a pontoon boat, a jet ski, and lots of noodles to float on. No pets, please! If you want something other than hamburgers or hot dogs, you're welcome to bring whatever you like and cook it yourself on our gas grill.

Plenty of room out front to park your vintage VW's - let's show the neighbors what we got! If you know what dish you're bringing, please email Lynn at lynn.anderson@juno.com, so we won't have a lot of duplicates.

For those wishing to caravan out to the diner from the Detroit metro area, we will meet at the former Karmann USA in Plymouth (now Webasto Roof Systems) beginning at 10:00 AM in the parking lot where the MVVC 2009 Festival was held (located on Pilot Drive, just south off of 5 Mile Road, between Sheldon and Beck Roads, just north of M-14). The caravan will hit the road no later than 10:40 AM and proceed through Ypsilanti to US 12 (Michigan Ave.). We'll follow US 12 west through the towns of Saline and Clinton, into the Irish Hills to US 127, where we'll head south to Hudson, MI. At Hudson, we'll turn west onto M-34 and make our way to the Sidekick. The caravan will be travelling essentially two-lane highways with scenic, casual driving at moderate speeds. Think of it as a late summer warm-up for the Color Tour! The trip from Plymouth will be approximately 80 miles and will take an estimated 2 hours driving time.
