Eye Candy: Quail Motorsports Gathering

The Countach has styling that will still blow you away from any angle which is amazing for a car first shown in 1971.

There is no easier event to do an Eye Candy gallery for than the Quail Motorsports Gathering. Nowhere on the Monterey Peninsula will you see a better and more varied collection of sports cars, and in an amazing setting.

I’ve enjoyed attending the Quail since its inception and continue to believe it is one of the finest automotive events in the world.

And not just because of the amazing cars in attendance, but also the food and drink included in the rather expensive admission price. Add in the people who are there and it closes the deal.

Nowhere else are you likely to run into famous car designers and race car drivers while eating the best food and viewing some of the most extraordinary cars in the world.
