Last weekend Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina and P4/5 Competizione made their way to The Quail.  That Friday I woke a little before 5am and got a ride from an old friend who somehow borrowed a zebra striped 458 for the day. We drove to the trailer park and unloaded the cars.  A few fans showed up including Gil Folk who provided a few of the photos you’ll see below.  P4/5C went onto a flatbed and P4/5 was placed on the wet grass for the drive over.  While P4/5C is street legal and road worthy, she doesn’t do well in the enormous amount of traffic that is common to Pebble Beach on this particular weekend.  Following behind P4/5 is almost better than being a passenger in it.  Almost.  While the interior is beautiful, I could follow that timeless back end for days.  Once we got to Quail we unloaded P4/5C and Paolo drove her across the lawn while the other cars were being uncovered.  It was a sight to see the sisters and a Ferrari Enzo all together in the Supercar class.  Quail is personally my favorite of the Pebble Beach weekend shows.  The cars are outstanding as is the food and the people.  Michael Schumacher, Jean Todt and even Matt Hardigree stopped by to say hello as did the ever talented Horacio Pagani.  After lunch, Leno led a parade of Corvette race cars around the show in a new Stingray.  The parade was completely unexpected and felt as if it was some type of coup d’etat by Corvette.  Lamborghini had their US debut of the Veneno and a winged man wearing a Bentley Parachute jumped from 12,000 feet.  Luckily he did not hit the drone which had been suspiciously watching everyone throughout the day day.  Like her sister did a few years back, P4/5C took the win in Supercar class.  We packed her up and brought the cars back to the trailer.  Thank you to all our fans who stopped by to say hello.  Northern California in the middle of August is a place everyone with motor oil running through their veins should experience at least once in their lives.  It’s the only place where not only is there a Veyron parked outside your restaurant, but it is for the most part ignored.  Below you’ll find photos of my journey.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

    Who is the nut that is cutting up an Enzo?

    Many thanks for following through with your dream and including us on the journey.

    I’m still awaiting the red paint for that stunning race car.
