Festival of the Unexceptional: A Concours de l’Ordinaire

I posted this on the Just a Car Geek Facebook page. For those of you not on Facebook, I thought I should post it here, too.

Festival of the Unexceptional: A Concours de l’Ordinaire. (Click on the link.)

I think this is a brilliant idea. We need one (two, three, four...) of these in the US. We especially need one in New England. :-)

Many, many years ago, the Labor Day weekend event at Lime Rock Park was called the Vintage Fall Festival. You would see old Fiats, Volvos, Rovers, MGBs, Saabs, Renaults, Peugeots, etc. among the more high price classics. Now it's called the Lime Rock Historic Festival and it's much more upscale. I still love the event, but I miss the mundane...

The British event is sponsored Haggerty Insurance in the UK. Maybe the the good folks at Haggerty Insurance US would get involved with one (two, three, four...) here? Maybe we could do it on our own? Hmmm...

Hagerty has sponsored (and co-organized, I think) the Concours d'Lemons the last few years down in Monterey - that actually goes one step further in featuring cars that your average sane person would not allow into their garage. I've had my Lancia Beta sedan and Alfetta GT there, and I felt like part of the mainstream compared to some of the other stuff.

@Chris: I thought the same. My Phaeton was even shown on this Motorweek feature of the Lemons Concours.

'The Festival of the Unexceptional is meant to humorously highlight the serious attrition rate of cars produced in the 1970s-1980s. The paltry number of these cars either licensed or on Statutory Off-Road Notice is truly frightening. Remarkably, there are more Porsche 911s in daily use in the UK than there are Ford Sierras.
