August 2019 Jacksonville Cars and Coffee

August 2019 Jacksonville Cars and Coffee - The Avenues Mall

Unlike the June Cars and Coffee, skies were clear and the sun sweltering at this morning’s gathering of automotive enthusiasts. When we set out at 7:30, the temperature was a more or less comfortable 80°F. Yet when we left the event just after 10, the heat index was indicating 118 degrees thanks to temperatures in the upper 90s and humidity well over 75%. Needless to say, our 1970 Triumph TR6 and its utter lack of air conditioning probably wasn’t the best choice to drive today. But despite all of the atmospheric junkiness, the the First Coast’s car enthusiast came out in force – filling the parking lots of the Avenues Mall yet again.

A Shelby Adventure

A Warm Afternoon with Four Genuine Shelby Legends

1966 Shelby Cobra 427 in Motion

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery – and if so, the legendary designs of Carroll Shelby are among the most admired of all time. Today, if you have the resources, you can buy yourself a near-perfect replica of both the Shelby Cobra and Shelby Mustang from a whole slew of companies. But the rare specimens I spent a few days with in late June are no modern-day knock-offs – they are the real McCoy – stunning specimens of the beauty and ingenuity of Shelby and his team.
