Quail 2018: The day the 1980s became legitimate


Although we spent the day wandering the same car show, my esteemed colleague Brett Berk and I came away from this year’s Quail Motorsports Gathering with two distinctly different impressions. For him, it was a rote assembly of auto icons that had largely been seen before, presented alongside a gilded trough of exquisite eats, albeit with the usual chronic shortage of shaded seating. And while I can’t argue that many of the Quail’s cars were been-there, seen-thats, and it probably pandered a bit too much to the new-supercar crowd, for me this was the event that I will always remember as the day the 1980s hit the big time.
