    Bay Area Concours Event, 16 Sep 2012

    Last year Ian (Norcal), Mike (Rev happy) and I attended the Danville Concours. It was a great afternoon with wine tasting and cool cars all in a relaxed setting. If you're interested, this year's event is on September 16th. Entry fees for the cars on display are used to support Parkinson's research.

    Finishing touches

    I'm having the Z8 detailed tomorrow for the Danville concours and our road trip to Napa later this month. I bought a "driver", but with a sound mechanical foundation I've been diligent about replacing and repairing cosmetic items previously described on this forum. With the future installation of a new plastic rear window I'm pretty much "done" with respect to my visual expectations. Thanks to all for providing such a great resource for this special vehicle.

    I'm sorry you couldn't be there too, I had a lot of fun hanging out with you and your friend Mike last year. I was the only Z8 in the eclectic collection of cars on display. A lot folks would walk over to the McLaren next to my car, but then stop in front of the Z8 and say something like "I've always loved these cars" this was especially true for those guys in my age group. Go figure.

    McLaren looks don't thrill me either. I am sure it drives wonderfully but it just doesn't excite me. Looks like every other supercar out there. The Z8 is just unique.
