A Rainy Inaugural – Cars and Coffee Invades The Avenues

An Epic, Drizzly Beginning to Jacksonville’s Cars and Coffee at The Avenues

With the new year comes all sorts of changes – not least of which was the move of Jacksonville’s Cars and Coffee from the Florida Times Union parking lot to its new location at the Avenues Mall, in Jacksonville’s southside.  The morning proved stupendously dreary, with a lingering fog and sporadic rain showers that you would think would keep many cars tucked safely away in their garages.  Add to that a new location and people recovering from the holidays, and I wouldn’t have been surprised if attendance at Cars and Coffee was less than spectacular.  But I was surprised – with somewhere north of 700 folks bringing their classics and exotics, hardtops and convertibles, priceless gems and ratted out rods – the rain and logistics couldn’t keep all the car nuts from their monthly gathering!   The folks at Automotive Addicts did it again!

Apart from a greater-than-normal amount of umbrellas and a lower-than-usual percentage of convertibles, Cars and Coffee was populated with your usual manifold assortment of automotive eye candy.  Noteworthy vehicles included a super-rare (As in you’re more likely to see Elvis back from the dead than see one of these) McLaren 675LT, as well as not one, but two Volvo 240’s!  Yeah, I know – what’s the big deal about an old Volvo?  For most people, not much, but my first two cars were Volvo 240 station wagons, so you could say I have an affection for them.

Ferrari Mondiali, F1 Invade Daytona

Mega Gallery: Ferrari Mondiali Brings F1 and Much More for Historic Daytona Event

Deremer Studios Motorsports Photography

What’s it sound like when a group of modern Ferrari Formula 1 cars go racing around Daytona for the first time?  Well, in a word… Amazing!  The banshee shriek of the high-revving Ferrari cars echoing through the infield as the cars fly down Daytona’s famous superstretch, was an experience for the senses.  Add to that, the historic significance of F1 cars taking to the high banking of Daytona for the first time ever, and you have a glimpse of what a treat this weekend was.  But that was just the beginning – with races, parties, an auction, and a Ferrari car show going on throughout the weekend.

Deremer Studios Motorsports Photography

Up until Friday afternoon, it wasn’t looking like we were going to be able to attend, but with a bit of work productivity, and speedy help from our friends at Top Gear and Ferrari, we headed south to capture the event!  We’ve included over 50 images of these great Ferrari cars and all the wonderful festivities that represent Ferrari Mondiali.  For this enthusiast, my favorite part of the experience – perhaps second only to the F1 performance – was walking around Saturday evening, as everyone was getting ready for the near record-setting Ferrari parade lap around Daytona.  With most people occupied with final preparations, I had the classic Ferrari display just about to myself – free to enjoy and photograph these storied cars in the beautiful late evening light.  Later, I joined up with the parade group – some 800+ Ferrari strong – and took some time to photograph the cars in the fleeting light.  All in all, it was a truly epic day!

A Feast for the Eyes – November’s Cars and Cofee

Rare Rides and Good Friends at Jacksonville’s Cars and Coffee

Deremer Studios Automotve Photography - Cars and Coffee

Wow!  It’s been a busy couple of weeks here at Deremer Studios, but thankfully we were still able to get out to Jacksonville’s Cars and Coffee this weekend!  After skipping a month thanks to our buddy, Hurricane Matthew, it was nice to see everyone come out yet again for the penultimate Cars and Coffee to be held at the Times Union Building.  The fine folks that put on the show are on the lookout for a new location for the meet-up, beginning in January.  If you’ve got, or know of any locations with 400+ parking spots and a great atmosphere, please let the good folks at Automotive Addicts know.

This month, VW was the featured marquis, with a hearty showing of Golf representing much of the history of the German manufacturer’s storied model – many with a healthy touch of modifications for your drooling pleasure.  Vintage American muscle was also there in force, with a wide range of 60’s and 70’s Corvettes, Mustangs and Firebirds, and the rather splendidly restored Mercury Cougar, above.   The morning was rounded out with some modern muscle, like the ACR Viper, a couple of exotics, and a smattering of modern Euro and Asian rides.  In total, there were about 200 folks that brought their cars out for a morning of shared passion.  Isn’t it nice when we can all come together!

Sunny Side Up Honda – September’s Cars and Cofee

A Bright and Shiny Morning at Jacksonville’s Cars and Coffee

Deremer Studios Automotve Photography - Cars and Coffee

Nothing like a trip to Jacksonville’s Cars and Coffee to start off your Saturday morning!  After a long overdue first visit to Cars and Coffee last month, we made sure to set some time aside in the calendar (between sleep and a Lego build for the kids at Toys-R-Us) to spend the first couple hours of the day with a few hundred car nuts and their beloved four-wheeled children.

Deremer Studios Automotve Photography - Cars and Coffee

This month, Honda brands were the featured marquis, with a large Acura NSX contingent lining the entrance to the Times Union building.  A few other cars that caught my eye were a great example of a well loved American Austin (a domestic version of the Commonwealth’s Austin 7), a beautifully restored Citroën 2CV, a DMC DeLorean complete with its original 1982 tape deck, and a whole gaggle of 1st and 2nd gen Vipers.  Add to that a JSO-liveried BMW M6, a post-apocalyptic-styled mustang, and a drift-modded Nissan 370z, and you have a feel for the amazing array of cars you’ll find from month to month.  You nenver know what you might see!

A Different Sort of Muscle: Jaguars Car Show Invades EverBank Field

Celebrating 4-Wheeled Athletes at the Jaguars Car Show

Deremer Studios Automotve Photography

So, as time allows, we’ve decided to do our part to highlight the amazing car scene here in Jacksonville, FL – such as the Jaguars Car Show from this past weekend.  Sure, Jacksonville is known for our connection to the Navy, being a hub for industries like logistics, banking and healthcare, and of course for having a bridge for each day of the week spanning the St Johns River – but the area is also known for a rather splendid, albeit diverse, car culture.  From the amazing automotive spectacle that is the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, to grass roots movements such as the popular Cars and Coffee meetups arranged by Automotive Addicts – Jacksonville is full of folks that have 10W30 with their cereal in the mornings and go to bed with the sounds of throbbing V8s dancing in their heads.  So, it was no surprise to see a great collection of cars at this weekend’s Jaguars Car Show.

Ranging from late model sportscars and exotics, to a vintage Porsche and a race-spec Shelby Mustang – there was something for pretty much anyone – unless you hate cars – but that’s your own fault…  As is often the case, we had a busy Saturday, so our trip to the show was shorter than I would have liked, but it was a great time to catch up with old friends, make a few new ones – and see some great metal!

Our First Visit to Jacksonville’s Cars and Coffee

A Long Overdue Trip to Cars and Coffee

Deremer Studios Automotve Photography

For being as car crazy as I tend to be, you may be surprised to know that I had yet to visit Cars and Coffee – our city’s monthly gathering of gearheads and their manifold rides along the scenic St Johns river.  After spending this past Saturday morning at Cars and Coffee, I really regret taking so long to finally make it to one!  But alas, past regrets aside, I did manage to bring my camera along and couldn’t resist taking a few – well a few hundred photos…

Deremer Studios Automotve Photography

I was quite pleasantly surprised at the number and diversity of vehicles at Cars and Coffee.  From hot rods to exotics, antiques to modern muscle – the list of cars was all over the board.  Many cars had been nicely restored, many of the modern vehicles had any number of modifications, and there was even a good helping of cars, like my TR6, that were in varying stages of restoration – so I felt right at home.  Though the TR6 is a relatively rare car in the States, I was surprised to discover not one, but two other TR6’s at the meet-up.  All in all, it was a great event, and one I will certainly make an effort to be a part of much more often!
