    Danville (CA) Concours d'Elegance - 22 Sept 2013

    I have participated in this event the last two years and depending on my travel schedule I will likely show my Z8 again this year. There are lots of great cars in a casual setting with wine tasting! Proceeds from the concours support Parkinson's research and patients. Here's the link if any other SF Bay Area Z8er is interested.

    I spoke with my dad this weekend, he's entering a car so I'm definitely going to. My wife is due about 2 weeks after that though so I may have to take off real quick though if there's an issue!

    With my work schedule dialed in, I just registered the Z8. I hope to see and meet other owners at this event.

    Pictures!

    After a wet Saturday in the SF Bay Area, we had a perfect Fall day on Sunday for the concours. Today's event included a P51 Mustang flyover.

    Sorry I missed you Ian. My oldest son drove up from San Francisco, and we spent time walking around looking at the eclectic collection of machines on display, enjoying lunch at the Danville Hotel, combined with a little wine tasting! Speaking of wine, two years ago we sampled the delightful wines of Corvalle served by its young owner Ryan Moreland. This year I had the pleasure talking to Ryan's father about a variety of topics while he poured a great red table wine.

    I want to include a few more pictures including my favorite car from Bavaria. The orange 2002 parked next to me drew a lot of attention for the quality of its restoration by Full Circle in Lodi CA.
