Event: Monterey Car Week 2019

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="34075"] Here’s the dirty little secret about Monterey Car Week. You can’t see it all. You simply can’t. No matter how much you prepare, you’d be incredibly hard pressed to know about all of the cool events and meet-ups going on that week. And, even when you do, there simply aren’t enough hours in a day… or week. That may sound like a whiner’s view, given what an embarrassment of riches this particular car week represents. We’d a...

The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering at Monterey Car Week 2019

  [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="33920"] Named for the golf lodge on whose lush grounds it is held, “The Quail” may very well be the most exclusive car event of the weekend. Tickets are three figures and sell out quickly after becoming available. Security is tight, though incredible food and celebrities are plentiful once inside. All that said, it’s obvious that Quail is enthusiast produced. Fireside chats with racing legends, car and concept reveals, e...

Event: Automobilia Monterey at Monterey Car Week 2019

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="34282"] This gathering of vendors in Seaside, CA is a great way to begin the week. Like so many Monterey activities, Audi is a bit of a niche topic at Automobilia, but if you take your time and dig through, you’ll find some gems. Most notable to us this year included a German market 1984 line-wide catalogue including Sport quattro, out-of-print Horch brand book, out-of-print Audi Sport customer racing yearbooks, and several Sport quattro ite...

Event: Exotics on Broadway at Monterey Car Week 2019

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="34256"] A very different flavor than other Monterey events, “Exotics” is set up for a wanton show of wealth in a different form – mainly modern exotics, often modified and driven by super car rallyists. Throw in ample “carparazzi” photographers and kids simply seeking flaming-belching exhaust snaps for Instagram, and it becomes quickly apparent how diverse the world of expensive automobiles can be. Exotics moved from Monterey...

Event: Legends of the Autobahn at Monterey Car Week 2019

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="34237"] If Quail represents the factory side of the brand, Legends is the club and enthusiast focus. For Monterey Car Week, it represents a more approachable concours not just to attend, but also participate. That’s not just lip service. Audi-owner winners ranged from a rare Auto Union 1000 SP to a more contemporary and exotic R8 plus, and even a more daily driven Q5. Legends is run in part by Audi Club, BMW Car Club of America, and M...

Event: Rolex Motorsports Reunion at Monterey Car Week 2019

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="33927"] Held at the legendary Laguna Seca raceway, the “Monterey Historics” is the event for motorsports enthusiasts. It is a celebration of all things racing, and that’s obvious from walking the paddock or spotting what’s on track. Many vendors line the vendor row, while other special displays like Bring A Trailer’s “Family Reunion” can also be found on the Laguna Seca’s grounds. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full"...
