The Concours d'LeMons

Also this last weekend was the Concours d'LeMons in Seaside, CA. America is large, these events have been run in Braselton, Georgia, in April, and in Plymouth, MI, in July.

The premise of these shows are similar to the Festival Of the Unexceptional, leaning to the "oddball" and orphan.

Participating cars ran the gamut of serious sporting to the simply rediculous.

There may have been fewer sporting cars but the ridiculous and odd were well represented

California's show had this litte beauty.

This is a Spanish Biscuter (Bee-Scooter). This is minimalist motoring at its best (worst?).

The conditions at the end of WWII were not felt only by the countries of europe, east of France. Spain was also feeling it; they had their own Civil War in the 30s to get over.

Originally it was designed by Gabriel Voisin in France in the late 1940s. Nobody wanted it and eventually the rights to manufacture were sold to Autonacional S.A. of Barcelona.

The 1 cylinder, 197 cc, two-stroke motor produced 9 horsepower to drive, originally an all aluminum car. The car and its derivatives were popular during the 50s only getting crowded out as Spainiards became wealthier and models from the Spanish auto company SEAT became more economical
