January 2020 Jacksonville Cars and Coffee

Our Epic Gallery from Jacksonville Car Culture’s January Cars and Coffee at the Avenues Mall

After a busy Christmas break traveling through Virginia and New Hampshire (photos coming soon) we arrived back in Jacksonville just in time for the Roar Before the Rolex 24 (photos also coming soon…) and this weekend’s Jacksonville Cars and Coffee – the very first Cars and Coffee of the new decade – and just possibly the largest turn out for the event yet! As we are want to do, we took photos – lots of them – and wanted to share a few of our favorites here with you. You can, of course, visit the full gallery as well.

In addition to the near-record crowd and an especially full exotic car row, Jacksonville Cars and Coffee sponsor, Eurofed Automotive, selected a beautiful 1961 Porsche 356 Notchback (below) for this month’s Cars and Coffee Cup award. The car’s owner and caretaker, Vincent Vuong, shared with us a bit about the unique history of the 356 Notchback. Apparently, as the story goes, Porsche was having trouble sourcing a sufficient number of cloth tops for their cabriolets in the early 60’s. Not ones to waste time or resources, hard tops were welded onto these orphan 356 cabriolets and the Notchback was born. Of the 1,470 that were produced in 1961, most were converted back into the more desirable convertibles, so unmolested Notchbacks are now few and far between – especially in the condition of Vincent’s.

Vintage Glory – The 2019 Classic 24

2019 HSR Classic 24 by IMSA - Daytona - Mercedes 300SL Gullwing Belching Fire

The Weather Outside was Frightful, but the Rumble of Vintage Racers as they Roared Around Daytona at the Classic 24 was oh, so Delightful!

When one thinks of Florida, images of welcoming beaches and gently swaying palm trees, all under a warm tropical sun come to mind. Yeah, well, that wasn’t quite the picture at this year’s HSR Classic 24 at Daytona. Imagine, instead, if you will, one of those damp and dreary autumn New England days – the sort of weather that chills you right to the bone and causes you to wonder if the sun still exists – and that’s what we had pretty much all week down in Daytona. But despite the downright combative weather, this year’s Classic 24 was the best one yet, with a giant uptick in entrants, a busier than usual infield complete with campers and the addition of the eclectic and nostalgic VW bus Bulli Brigade. Add to that hours and hours of great vintage racing and more than your fair share of flame-spitting vintage racers, and its no wonder we all turned out despite the weather.

Sarasota’s Rolling History

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.

Karl & Cheyenne’s Monumental Manuscript Library Wedding

Deremer Studios Wedding Photography

It’s wedding post week here at Deremer Studios!  Next up is the wonderful wedding of Cheyenne and Karl.  We’ve known Cheyenne for quite some time – her company prints our long-run books for us – and so we were doubly honored when she asked us to be a part of their special day.  The couple chose to tie the knot at the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, a grand old classic revival building in the heart of Jacksonville.  Of special note, is the purple and blue themed candy table, and be sure to look closely at their wedding bands – Karl’s is hewn from a solid piece of meteorite.  Pretty cool stuff!  Congrats Cheyenne and Karl – here’s to a lifetime of love, joy and purpose!

As always, please feel free to download as many photos as you like – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!
