Your Concours d'Lemons Michigan 2018 "Winners"

concours d lemons worst of show trophy michigan 2018

The Concours d'Lemons at the 2018 Concours of America was a rousing success, if your definition of success means there were no serious injuries. Better still, the groundskeeping staff at the host site, The Inn at St. John's in Plymouth, Michigan, didn't kick anyone out. 

 The jokes, of course, are part of the spirit of Lemons. Everyone who brought a car out to display did so out of passion for their car. And some of those people went home with relatively-cheap awards and prize bags. We've listed all 15 (15? What are these, participation trophies?), with an larger gallery at the bottom of the article. The names have been omitted to protect bad judgement.
