Our Mega Gallery from Jacksonville Car Culture’s October Cars and Coffee
It’s that time of the year again – when Jacksonville Cars and Coffee takes its annual field trip to TIAA Bank Field to partner with the Jaguars for one epic car show. This year was no exception, with record crowds and participants – and over 800 cars on display. For the first time, we also experimented with a step-and-repeat style portrait for those who purchased reserved parking (find your photo at our full October Cars and Coffee Gallery). Also new for October, after some helpful feedback from you, we’ve dramatically cut our digital download prices for current and past Cars and Coffee events.
Our Mega Gallery from Jacksonville Car Culture’s September Cars and Coffee
Despite the threat of weather thanks to Tropical Storm Humberto, automotive enthusiasts from all over Northeast Florida turned out in mass for this weekend’s Jacksonville Car Culture Cars and Coffee at the Avenues Mall. Near record crowds once again flocked to the parking lots surrounding the mall to display and enjoy the diverse and unique collection of cars that the event draws each month.
Our Mega Gallery from Jacksonville Car Culture’s August Cars and Coffee
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.
Exploring Sarasota Classic Car Museum & Vintage Motors
This past week, we had the pleasure of heading down to Sarasota to photograph a conference for our friends at Firebirds Wood Fire Grill. I had a few hours of down time, and as providence would have it, I stumbled upon an automotive gem hidden a few hundred feet from my hotel. The gem, Sarasota Classic Car Museum, is the second oldest continuously running car museum in the United States, getting its start in 1953 as the century’s send Florida Land Boom was well under way.
As we returned to blogging after a little, itty-bitty break of about 2 years, I realized that we were rapidly approaching our 500th post. I was a bit surprised – so much so that I had to go back and count, but sure enough this post is #500! So, what do you do with such a milestone?
