    Photo shoot opportunity: Hardtop removal

    I've had coffee with Ken (01BlueZ8) a few times to talk about cars, and Saturday we got together to remove the hardtop from his Z8. Except for a detailing, Ken's Z8 is now all set for The Quail event in August (He was accepted last week). As a preview to Monterey, we drove a short distance together, and it was amazing to see the reaction of people on seeing not one but two Z8s on the road.

    Thank you! I need to start thinking about taking my Z8 up a notch or two for The Quail.

    I forgot about the reaction people have towards the Z8, but I was reminded when I stopped for gas on the way to Ken's house. A lady jumped out of her Mini with her toddler in her arms to tell me that I was driving her favorite car. She then explained to her son all about the car. Amazing!
    My Best,

    You know, Topaz/Crema is Henrik Fisker's favorite Z8 color combo.

    I miss the days of being in a train of Z8's, they really are the most beautiful cars on the road.

    Ed has been so kind in helping me get to know my car. Last Saturday, he went out of his way to come to the house to help and teach me how to get the hard top off the car. I didn't realize it is so heavy--it took 3 of us to lift it and place it securely on the stand. I finally was able to experience driving the car as it was meant to be driven! I am very excited for The Quail event and to meet other passionate owners like Ed. Thank you again Ed!
