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.
