Cars & Coffee at Amelia Island Concours Set For Saturday, March 8


The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance invites you to spend your Saturday morning at their second annual Cars & Coffee at the Concours. The free event, presented by Heacock Classic Car Insurance, will be held Saturday, March 8th on the fairways of The Golf Club of Amelia Island at the Ritz-Carlton. Over 300 cars from marque clubs are expected. Gates will be open from 9:00 a.m. until the conclusion of the show at 1:00 p.m.

Parking at nearby Fernandina Beach Airport is available for a nominal fee with free shuttle service to the show. There is no charge for admission to the show.

Cars will be shown from the Mercedes Club of America, as well as the various Viper, Porsche and Corvette clubs. Additionally, a wide variety of American collector cars will be on display.

“Last year we had collector cars and car clubs from Alfa to Zagato from all over the country and we’re expecting the same this year,” said Brian Webber, Executive Director of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Last year’s premier of Cars & Coffee at the Concours was a photographer’s paradise with new and classic models on display.

“’Bring your kids and your camera’ has become the unofficial motto for Cars & Coffee,” said Webber. “It’s a great father and son day, a great family day and a majority of the Concours exhibitors will be open as well.”

The 2014 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance will be held March 7-9th on the 10th and 18th fairways of The Golf Club of Amelia Island at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. The show’s Foundation has donated over $2.25 million to Community Hospice of Northeast Florida, Inc. and other charities on Florida’s First Coast since its inception in 1996. In 2013, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance won Octane Magazine’s EFG International Historic Motoring Event of the Year award.
