    The Quail 2019

    In my third trip to The Quail, I enjoyed spending time with my oldest son and taking in the amazing collection of cars. I didn't see any Z8s in the field, but here are a few images of my favorite cars. Enjoy!

    Are we planning any Monterey events for 2020 to celebrate the 2000 release of the Z8?

    My first and only trip to The Quail was a memorable one as it was with all the Z8 owners. I hope to attend the event again, hopefully next year. Thank you Ed, for sharing the photos of the special cars.

    What is that Ferrari? Reminds me of the 288gto! Thanks Ed for the pics. That Koenigsegg is awesome too.

    I believe it is the new Ferrari SF90 Stradale hybrid with a total of 986 hp.

    Hi Ted,
    Understanding that it will be difficult to match the 2016 gathering of Z8 owners in Monterey, those were my thoughts too.

    Ted and I are interested in planning something for Car Week 2020. Please let us know the next time you are visiting the Bay Area.

    Ed, great coverage, thanks for sharing!!

    I was actually texting with Jeff over the weekend about planning a get together and drive for next year.

    Since many of us are no longer in Z8's, or don't want to put that many miles on theirs, we were kicking the idea of doing a 'bring what you have' get together.

    I'll most likely be in the SL550 I just bought, an 07 with just 25,000 miles, it's not a Z8, but it's a lovely and easy to live with V8 German grand tourer that'll allow me to keep up.

    Hi Andrew,
    It is my pleasure to share a few images.

    It would be wonderful to bring everyone back together. With your driving skills I am sure you would be more than just keeping up!

    Great pictures, thanks for posting. I made it out from Virginia and was there but didn't see the red Speedster - where was it? I did see the heritage one on the Porsche stand.

    The new Speedster was inside of the Porsche exhibit. Stunning car.
