Thread: Any interest in setting up a San Francisco Bay Area event?

    Any interest in setting up a San Francisco Bay Area event?

    Nearly two years ago, Norcal and I setup a wine tasting and lunch event in the Bay Area. Please send me a PM if you might be interested in having a similar event in 2015.

    Works for me! Have you emailed all the Bay Area crew?

    It's on me now! Let me explore some ideas, and come back to you then I'll send out an e-invite to the local owners.

    I need to update my list... Who has sold? Anyone new? I'll email you today.

    Jimmy and Sean have sold their Z8s, but I have been recently emailing a couple of new local owners, Ken and Scot, who could join us. If we want to open up the invitation list, Dana Caldwell would like to join us (we had lunch last month) as well as inviting Z8 Alums Jimmy and Sean.

    It would be great to meet you Greg! I'll keep you posted.

    Last time we had six Z8s, a C2 Corvette and great car discussions fueled by few glasses of wine.

    We bought Sean's car. It lives in Oregon right now, but we'll be driving it through the Bay Area in October. Is that near one of the dates you're considering?

    The only request I received on the timing was for the event to be after July, so October meets that criteria. Feel free to post or to send me a PM when your dates are firm for an October visit to the SF Bay Area.

    Just not too late in October I hope... The weather turns. The earlier the better. I'm in...

    Buffy is not such a bad name, especially considering this car previously had a custom rear license plate that read: "BLACK Z8". As for weather in October, early in the month it can be outstanding. Stay tuned...

    It would be early October. I have no interest in starting a drive from Portland any later early October---been caught in bad weather too many times through the pass!

    Buffy is a very well buffed car with a buffed physique! Twinky name that's ironic enough to be funny.
