One of our favorite events during the Monterey weekend is the incredible gathering of cars at the Quail Lodge in Carmel. It's by far the most exclusive event, with only a few thousand tickets available, but the benefit is that the limited number of spectators makes viewing the cars much easier and creates a more relaxed atmosphere. The selection of cars is just as exclusive, which makes walking through the assembly of cars an incredible experience. One of our favorite groups was the 12 Hours of Sebring race cars, which included anything from a 1-of-5 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport to a 2003 Ferrari 575 GTC. We also enjoyed the Porsche 959 group that had around a dozen examples on display including one of the three factory cars that raced in the Paris-Dakar rally in 1985. Another favorite was the collection of Lamborghinis shown as a tribute to Valentino Balboni, the factory test driver since the company's inception. We loved the stunning Miuras as well as the rare LM002 SUV. And the list goes on...there were groups for The Great Ferraris, Supercars, Gurney Eagle Race Cars, and more.

        It looks like Glickenhaus was paying hommage to the P3/4 and it worked brilliantly. Especially when you consider the car it is based on...

        Ferrari P4/5, a one off model commissioned by some uber wealthy bloke and Pininfarina.

      Haha, that kid is using Armor All tire shine on a Veyron. I just bought that exact same bottle off the clearance rack in Walmart for $5.00cdn. If it's good enough for a Bugatti, it's good enough for my Corolla.
