One of the Biggest Cars & Coffee in the World
What started out as a local car meet of about fifteen cars has now expanded to over three thousand with approximately twenty thousand spectators! The size is no surprise due to the amount of car enthusiasts in Florida (and it helps to be in the deep pockets area of West Palm beach)! The sunshine state with its beautiful weather and flat out roads, attracts many a car show including: Concours D'Elegance at Amelia, Festival of Speed in Orlando, Celebration Exotic Car Festival in Celebration as well as one of the biggest auctions in the world hosted by Mecum Auctions in Kissemmee.
Running an event like this is no easy task though. John and his management team started late last night preparing, only to return again in the early hours to assemble the final touches. It takes his team of just under twenty with the help of local law enforcement to keep things going smoothly. (and let's not forget about maintaining social media and gathering sponsors to help fund the event).
I arrived at 7:30am and cars were lined up to enter the event. When I left at about 11:30am, cars were still lining up (and that is two lanes of traffic)!
John, we wish you the best, keep in touch and we will see you again real soon!
