Summer on the west coast of Florida can be a wonderful time, to test the limits of your radiator. Our regular attendees arrived early Saturday morning, and it was easy to identify which cars had A/C. For the hardcore muscle cars, their decision to remove all pleasantries in the name of acceleration left them sweat stained by 6 am. The west lot was filled with classics and late model muscle, with rarities including a 1989 Turbo Trans-Am along with a bright yellow Plymouth Superbird. Ford GT’s need ample room to open their doors, so we parked him on the corner to facilitate ease of entry.
Buddy Brew arrived before we did, and offered several iced coffee creations along with breakfast options. As always we want to thank our local dealers including Reeves Imports, Dimmitt Cadillac, McLaren Tampa Bay, Roush Performance, Vanderhall Motor Works, Mercedes of Tampa Bay, EuroCycles and Elder Ford. And thank you to our fans who brave the year’s hottest temperatures to join us for a morning of cars & camaraderie.
