Life’s not a Beach at LeMons

LeMons rustbuckets

MULTI-million motors, caviar for lunch, Gucci loafers, botox and trophy wives in abundance.

Pebble Beach’s stunning motoring week in California is a playground for the obscenely filthy richy.

Now meet its Nemesis…Rubble Beach.

It’s actual name is LeMons.

Swap the rich and famous for, er, rustbuskets.

Curiously, I find LeMons slightly more alluring.

The marketing posters say it all. It’s described as “an ugly oil stain” on Pebble Beach and is a celebration of “hoopties, rust buckets, misfits, mistakes and the worst of the automotive world”.

Sounds a bit like British Leyland in its heyday.

However, it’s not all praise for LeMons.

To me some of these motors on show look far too good to qualify.

OK they’re not quite the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, but some are in decent nick.

You don’t also need a gold bar in your back pocket to window shop, it’s a free event because organisers say “you get what you pay for”.

Please note this West Ham United…
