Amelia Island’s Cars & Coffee is better than yours


Oh, your town hosts a cars and coffee show? That’s cute, but this is a Cars & Coffee. On the day before the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, the Ritz Carlton opens up their manicured, dewy grounds for a Cars & Coffee that would be nearly impossible to match, even in a car-jaded city like Los Angeles.

Cars rumble and lope on to the greens in the foggy morning while you sip your piping coffee and look this way—it’s a hard-driven ’65 Shelby Mustang GT350! And over there sits a pristine BMW M1. Oh and a blood-red Enzo-era Ferrari V-12 next to the Volkswagens. If you can’t find at least one car you’d love to take home, you’re clearly not a car nerd.

Obviously not every one has the luxury of making the trip to the Jacksonville, Fla. suburb of Fernandina Beach for this wonderful weekend. But fortunately, you can count on your friends at Hagerty to share the action and beautiful sheetmetal with you. Enjoy! We just hope you’re not too disappointed next time you hit your local cars and coffee.
