Saw this advertized - the Festival of the Unexceptional (Concors de l'Ordinaire)

I like it! They do a similar thing at the Watkins Glen Vintage Festival. It's called the Concorso Speciale. It's the group for all the oddball things that don't really fit in anywhere else. This last year there were things like: a Merkur, a pair of Corvairs, a blue DeLorean, a 1961 Ford Econoline Van, a Renault Delphine, and my VW Bus... It used to be known as the "Concourse DeLemons"
I think it's a great idea. All the car shows around here are just a collection of the same group of old American iron (Not that that is all bad). I love to see the oddities come out.
