A cool & windy Saturday morning was the setting for this month’s Cars & Coffee here at the duPont REGISTRY. Sure, Tax Day was around the corner, but nothing could deduct the fun & camaraderie of seeing our regular attendees.
In an unprecedented gathering, our showroom was blessed with several million dollars of the world’s most exclusive rides. Porsche was represented by a 918 Spyder and GT3 RS. Aston Martin’s One-77 carried the Union Jack along with a Rolls Royce Phantom LWB. The Italian Job consisted of three Ferrari 458s. A black Italia was flanked by a new Speciale Aperta and a real Ferrari Challenge race car. Moving that one into place is indeed a challenge, as the front spoiler has an approach angle of only 11 degrees. A big thank you to Ferrari of Tampa Bay for allowing us to display them.

Next door at BLVD Customs, it was business as usual. Attendees were allowed access to the shop to see where the magic happens. A disassembled Gallardo Spyder was on display to show the details involved in a total body color change. The recently completed HangIVer van was offering an alternative to the hair of the dog, and Davidoff’s Camacho Cigar party trailer was a major draw for tobacco enthusiasts.

Mercedes-Benz of Tampa Bay arrived with a new GLS 63 AMG and a new C class sedan. Dimmitt brought a pair of Cadillac ATS-Vs along with other luxury models, and Reeves Import Motorcars brought one of each of their brands. Euro Cycles of Tampa Bay had over a dozen overpowered two-wheelers which provided an interesting contrast to the local Volvo club.
Thank you to all our dealers and dedicated fans who wake up early to spend time with us. Stay tuned to Autofluence, as we have something special in the works for Cars & Coffee May.
