    Monterey 2017: Photo Essay

    Here are the first set of pictures from Monterey 2017. It was a much different experience than the one many of us shared together last year to celebrate BMW's 100-year anniversary. With that said, I enjoyed attending my first car auction at Mecum's on Saturday as well as my first Pebble Beach Concours. Enjoy these pictures for now, with more to come...

    BMW Z8 @ Mecum Auction

    Andrew in another post requested feedback on BMW Z8 auction results. When I attended Mecum's Auction there was a 16K mile silver/black BMW Z8 that I personally viewed. A few concerns came up for me in seeing this car in person included:
    Nail in left front tire (run-flat tires need replacing anyway)
    No PP (didn't notice any hood gap concerns)
    Tow hook mounted in front bumper (the car was running in the to be sold auction queue)
    Some minor clouding of headlight covers

    With that said, the car sold at a hammer price of $145K, and for an additional $10K +/- in service someone will own a nice example.






    My Best,

    Ed

    Than you Ed. As you know, I didn't make it this year. That blue and yellow GTO? is TDF! (Not Tour de France, but to die for!)

    Wow, so great, thanks so much for sharing, there are some seriously stunning MB's in there, I always wanted a 300 roadster!

    In case you aren't on instagram here's where I was.

    Awesome pics, Ed! Wish I would have been there as it looks like it was an amazing show... not quite the same as seeing 20 some odd z8s in one place, but still amazing.

    I am am currently in the Bay Area with my two daughters and was wondering if you or anyone can pass on the Canepa contact - hoping to stop in for a quick tour if they let me.

    We we are going to bike the currently closed #1 highway! Should be lots of fun.

    Thx

    Hi Patrick,

    Welcome to the Bay Area! I just sent you an e-mail with the Canepa contact information from our 2016 Monterey Car adventure.

    Cheers!

    Those are, by far, the best eclipse pictures I have seen. Wow.

    Thank you Andrew for sharing a few of your photos from Monday's eclipse!

    Robert I do take request! Here's a prewar Alfa that caught my eye at The Quail with a prancing horse.

    Thanks Ed! Something about old Alfa's does it for me. I really like the 50's vintage cars. I would take a 60's vintage GTA though too.

    All,
    Thanks for sharing all the photos. The eclipse shots were fantastic (Andrew, I hope you publish some of those in a book) and the shot of Satch's car is also fantastic.
