Our hearts broke when we heard that Irvine’s legendary Cars and Coffee will be coming to an end after years of successful shows. As the popularity of their event grew, they simply ran out of space – an issue which we should soon begin taking into consideration, as we ended 2014 with our biggest Cars and Coffee turnout of the year.
Perfect weather allowed our local dealers to bring out their heavy hitters. McLaren Tampa Bay arrived early with a P1. Yes, a real P1, in the open, in all its glory. Mercedes-Benz of Tampa Bay had several AMGs, including an S65 Sedan. Ferrari of Tampa Bay, Reeves Imports, Crown Eurocars and Boulevard Customs provided an avenue of dreamcars along the southern edge of the building. Maher Chevrolet arrived with 2 new Corvette Z06s with less than 15 miles on the odometer.

Our lots were filled by 7 am, and spectators were greeted with free donuts thanks to Mercedes-Benz of Tampa. Our neighbors at Bic Graphics were more than accommodating as their building was surrounded by overflow parking. We saw everything from a SuperBird RoadRunner to a club of classic Beetles. We have certainly outgrown our facility and we look forward to March for a big show offsite. If you didn’t make it, be sure to watch the video walk-through of our biggest show yet, and plan to come see us in January for the launch of Cars and Coffee 2015.
