It was the beginning of the longest day of the year with some of the hottest temperatures so far this summer, but the long hours of sunlight and rising temperatures ahead didn't deter a large crowd of enthusiasts. Nearly 1,000 spectators gathered for the monthly duPont REGISTRY Cars & Coffee gathering, making for one of the largest shows we've ever hosted.
The parking lots surrounding our headquarters and BIC Graphics next door were filled with dozens upon dozens of stunning vehicles. Of course, there were a few that absolutely stole the show; specifically, two parked outside and one in our showroom caught every eye. Sitting next to the main tent was a stunning Bentley GT3-R from Dimmitt Automotive Group, sharing the marque's latest race car for the streets, while the Porsche 918 Spyder in the showroom drew another large crowd. The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office stopped by with their Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle, decked out in full PCSO green. During the event, we also auctioned off a PapaGo! GoSafe 272 Dash Camera, with proceeds going to the Toys for Tots charity. Mercedes-Benz of Tampa Bay, Reeves Import Cars, Fields BMW Lakeland, Crown Motor Cars and Maz Exotics all brought a few participants as well, filling every available spot. Take a moment to enjoy the photos from the event below, and mark your calendars for July 18, when our next show will gather, same time, same place.
