In with the Jet Set: Gordon McCall's 2012 Monterey Party

And they’re off: the traditional curtain-raiser to Monterey week has just ended. Guests at Gordon McCall’s party held at the Monterey Jet Center enjoyed killer cocktails, fine food, even finer classic cars, new car launches and some interesting military and civilian aircraft.

More to the point, they enjoyed a party. Here are some images from the night which featured a US debut for the Aston Martin Vanquish, many cars from Lamborghini, a visit from some of the superlative entries to this year’s Quail Lodge event and much more.

Do check back regularly on Classic Driver. This year we will feature on-the-spot reporting from all the best events at Monterey and Pebble Beach.
