    Any feedback from attendees last year?
    Any thoughts on whether this is worth going to after the Concorso Italiano?

    'A much-anticipated highlight of the Monterey Peninsula's annual August Vintage Car Week will be The Quail -- A Motorsports Gathering, an intimate and glamorous historic sports and racing car showcase that debuted in 2003 at Carmel Valley's famous Quail Lodge. The Quail, however, is not only for connoisseurs of extraordinary classic cars, but also of excellent food, wine and compelling auction items. The event, which takes place on Friday, August 13, 2004, is fashioned after the legendary Goodwood Festival of Speed, hosted by the Earl of March in the South of England. "The Quail is the most intimate of the Vintage Car events on the Monterey Peninsula," said Lawson Little, Vice President of Quail Lodge. "It reflects the distinctive style of Quail Lodge by infusing warmth, intimacy, creativity and exceptional quality into a world-class vintage car event."'

    I attended both CI and the Quail last year and they are like apples and oranges. Did the Quail until early afternoon and then drove to Seaside for the finish of CI. That ended up to be a very good choice, as people had problems getting in to CI with out too much hassle. I must add that Frank has changed the operations so no busses and parking is on the golf course, much like the old CI at Quail. If you were to do both, that is my advice.

    The Quail is VERY upscale and you will pay for it. Tickets are $150 a piece. For that you will get a fantastic lunch, program and admittance to Bonham's auction, off road driving experience, fly-overs by vintage planes and very significant cars on display. They are not featuring Ferrari, although there will be great examples there. Very high end.

    So, cost wise, is best to reverse thinking...Quail in morning and great lunch. CI in afternoon and miss the morning traffic crunch.
