Gordon McCall's Motorworks Revival at The Monterey Jet Center - Click above for high-res gallery

If you're even a casual classic car fan, the middle of August means two things: The Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit and Monterey in California. The Monterey festivities culminate in the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on Sunday, but it is generally regarded to kick off on Wednesday night with Gordon McCall's Motorworks Revival at The Monterey Jet Center. The Jet Center Party, as it's more informally known, brings together some of the most significant cars from all of the other events, along with many of the celebs and VIPs, lots of fabulous food and beverages, and an awesome assortment of classic warplanes and new jets for sale. It might sound like an odd mix, but it makes for a perfect start to our week in Monterey every year.

This year's party featured the usual assortment of jets, copters and planes, surrounding about 50 of the coolest vehicles around. Cars from the Blastolene Brothers (Piss'd Off Pete and the Indy Special), Reggie Jackson's classic muscle car collection, a sampling of iconic Porsche race cars that will be featured at Laguna Seca, Hennessey customs like the supercharged Camaros, a selection of headliners from the Bonhams auction, including the Auto Union and Bugatti, Spykers, the Zagato Bentley, Gemballa Mirage GT, James Glickenhaus' Dino Prototipo, and the new Porsche Panamera, Morgan Aero SuperSports and Lotus Evora, to name a few. Check out the gallery to get a glimpse of the goodness.
