I also put together recommendation for the
immediate area surrounding Carmel for Rennlisters
coming to Rennsport V back in 2015. Here is that
list:


Other restaurants in Carmel Valley & Carmel Valley Village that I recommend:

Baja Cantina (Mexican) on 7166 Carmel Valley Road (not far from Carmel-by-the-Sea):
http://www.carmelcantina.com
The weekly gathering of sport cars & hot rods is on Thursdays!

The Baja Cantina owner, auto collector Pat Phinny, also is the proprietor of 'Turn 12'
restaurant (American) in downtown Monterey - thus named because Laguna Seca
has 11 turns! http://www.turn12barandgrill.com

*********

'Carmel Valley Village' (20/30 minute drive from Carmel). Can also be accessed via
Laureles Grade from Route 68 in vicinity of Laguna Seca):

Corkscrew on 55 West Carmel Valley Road / Carmel Valley Village
http://www.corkscrewcafe.com
The owners, Walter & Gaston Georis, also are the proprietors of Casanova &
The Biclyclette in Carmel. Gaston drives a Boxster.

Cafe Rustica on 10 Del Fino Pl / Carmel Valley Village
http://www.caferusticavillage.com

Lokal on 13762 Center Street
http://www.lokalcarmel.com/about-us.html

Wine Tasting
Bernardus Winery Tasting Room on 5 West Carmel Valley Road / Carmel Valley Village
http://www.bernardus.com
Bernardus Winery is owned by Ben Pon, an ex-Porsche factory driver,
whose family are Porsche (& VW Group) importers for Holland!

Talbott Vineyards Tasting Room on 5 Pilot Road, Carmel Valley Village
http://www.talbottvineyards.com
Talbott was owned by a friend, notable motorcycle collector, Robb Talbott!
It has just been sold. Robb used to have part of his extensive motorcycle
collection on display at the tasting room.

Carmel Mid-Valley
Jeffrey's Grill / 112 Mid Valley Center / Great Breakfast & Brunch spot.
Halfway to Carmel Village. Closer to Quail Lodge & Carmel proper!
http://www.jeffreysgrillandcatering.com

*******

By the way, you can drive from Carmel to Greenfield (on 101, south of Salinas)
via Monterey County G16 Road. Pretty twisty...and a good interior road to drive your Porsche!

http://www.seemonterey.com/things-to...scenic-drives/

Due to the current Soberanes Fire, suggest you check with CalFire
before coming up G16 from 101 in Greenfield just in case of unexpected road closure:

http://calfire.ca.gov/index
*************

Big Sur down the coast on US 1:

Deetjens (Breakfast or Lunch - you will not soon forget the place or the ride!)
http://www.deetjens.com/restaurant.html

Ventana (Lunch)
http://www.ventanainn.com/#/dining

Rocky Point (closest to Carmel)
http://www.rockypointrestaurant.com

I have not been bothered by traffic so far this week,
but expect congestion tomorrow (Friday) on Carmel
Valley Road for Werks Reunion & The Quail.

***

Otherwise, it has been a pretty intensive 'green' week so far...

Presently back in Carmel

(I think the Ingram Collection still do own both of these two.)

Thank you for the correction, GVA-SFO. Indeed I picked the
wrong 1967 911R from the Ingram Collection. The #017
has apparently been since sold by the Ingrams. This car was
owned formerly by Warren Eads, then Peter Kitchak, both of
whom I know personally.

So indeed the car in display is #003, currently in the Ingram
Collection:
