Ran into a Z8 meet- Newport Beach

I just happened to be in Newport Beach at the right time and in the right place today. I noticed a few Z8's behind me and next thing I know, I arived at a small meet these fellas were having. It was in Crystal Cove. Anyway, I snaped a few pics and just f'ed around with photoshop

I never even knew that they sold that many Z8's.

I've only seen a handful of them. There was one that was parked a few miles away from my old house back home at a radio station everyday. Aside from that, I only saw an alpina Z8 at the dealer a few years back.

I saw one at the dealer here in montreal, and when i was in Kuwait i saw one in Blue. My uncle has a Red Z8 , less than 5000KM (no i didn't miss a zero ) on it, doesn't drive it that much. There are 4 Z8s in Kuwait, red (my uncle's Z8), Blue (i saw), White, and Black.
I asked my uncle to sell me his Z8, but he said no .
Is it true that BMW made 4000 Z8s in the world during 00-04? the dealer here in montreal told me that
