Wow, sounds incredible. The Ford GT guys used Schumacher Cargo logistics to take the GT's to France for LeMans. Text me if you need more info.

Amazing!! Many years ago after I graduated from school (Paris) my girlfriend and I, her brother and his wife hopped on a train and made our way from Paris to Ibiza. We really didn't have a specific plan, other than to spend time in Ibiza on the cheap. Back in the those days Spain was very, very cheap. Upon arriving in Ibiza we went to a real estate agency and rented a house overlooking the ocean for a month. The cost: $400 for the month, or 100 a piece. It was in an area called San Antonio just a few hundred yards from a club med. Every day we went snorkeling, swam and had the time of our lives. I had 400$ in my pocket when we left and returned with just under $100. Flash forward to two years ago, it cost $50,000 to reserve a table at a very popular club with DJ who was paid $1,000,000 for the night. That was the least expensive table...….What was once a relaxed laid back island turned into a playground for the very, very wealthy and along the way lost all of its charm.

Which train do I take in Paris to go to Ibiza?

Actually, I do know a DJ at Ibiza and million $ a night sounds a little fishy to me.

Yeah that's a ridiculous amount of money, but that's what the top DJ's make.

I just don't buy this. Where do you get your info? Sent your post to my friend who lives there and below is his reply:

well...he has a point but its exaggerating
a table is around 250 euros per person
of course depending on the location of the table it can go up to 10.000 for a table but that fits 10+ people
i came here 10 years ago and it changed a lot since then, thats why i started a luxury concierge agency
i might head back to Florida for a month again just for the heck of it

My information comes from one of my closest friends.
Is it possible that it was a special event and that the DJ was brought in for the event?

It is possible that he just wants to impress you. My information came from a real DJ at Ibiza.

You can just ask HTXSkydiver when he comes back.

My information comes from a really good friend who doesn't need to exaggerate nor does he need to impress. We are both in the 3rd quarter of our lives and it's quite possible that he got a few of the details mixed up. Maybe you can hook up your DJ friend with HTXSkydiver......anyway all this in the spirit of friendly banter and sarcasm.

I would gladly provide HTXSkydiver with my friend's contact info, should he ask me for it. He is in the luxury concierge business after all.

Well, she’s on her way to Mykonos! Going to miss her over the next 6 weeks... Kind of weird, exactly one year to the day from museum delivery in BG

I look forward to hearing what the Europeans think of the ZR1 once they see it and hear it.

Does anyone have experience with temporarily importing a Corvette (or other vehicle) into Europe to drive over there and then ship back? Has anyone participated in the rally before? Very exciting and could possibly be the first customer owned ZR1 to tool around European roads!
let me know if you need a copilot!

Holy smokes! I've been to Mykonos. It's a tiny island off the Greek coast with few roads. What will you do there? This is going to be beyond exciting to watch!

We’ll be in Mykonos about 4 days before the start. Driver registration and car prep a couple days before the start, beach party all day the day before the flag drops. We start in Mykonos, ferry ride to mainland Greece then to Athens for a larger starting ceremony then away we go.
