If you weren’t here on Saturday morning, you need to have a good excuse. The slide back into Daylight Saving Time along with the 12 Hours of Sebring were predicted to hurt our attendance, but Cars & Coffee is an unstoppable force. Let’s start by thanking every business around us because we shut down their parking lots. From Bic to Taco Bell and Chic-fil-a to Amplex nursery, parking is hard to find. We couldn’t do this show without the support from Sheriff Gualtieri, so thanks to the officers who keep the peace during our events.
Demographics for the Tampa Bay area show that people are moving here in record numbers, and our constant influx of new fans proves that. More attendees are more sales opportunities, so our dealers have been trying to outdo each other in getting here first. Ferman BMW was in first, followed by Bruiser Conversions in their latest LS-powered JK Crew. Mercedes-Benz of Tampa had several AMG models to choose from, and Reeves Import Motorcars brought a few from each brand. Ferrari of Tampa Bay, Crown, McLaren Tampa Bay and Bert Smith were all on hand to show off their hottest inventory.
Remember last year when we canceled our big show on Davis Island? Well, a simple hurricane can’t spoil the fun this year. So mark your calendars for May 19th and join us at Peter O Knight Airport. We’ll see you here next month!
