Coming This Weekend: Jacksonville Cars & Coffee, the Driveway Edition

Being stuck at home doesn’t mean a stop to interaction. Coming Saturday, April 11: Jacksonville Cars & Coffee Driveway Edition. 

What’s that all about? Just post a photo of your car to the group’s Facebook page this Saturday morning. 

But there is a catch: A prop to be included in that photo will be announced at 9 a.m. on Friday, April 10. The reason?  So we’re all posting fresh photos taken this weekend–like, to turn the event into an actual event, even if we can’t all get together. 

The prop, we’re told, will be something that most people already have, so don’t worry about having to overnight in some plutonium or a copy of the Necronomicon. Find full event details here and, yes, there will be prizes. 

Entrants are asked to make a donation to a recognized First Coast charity offering Covid-19 assistance–like, they note, the First Coast Relief Fund or the Jacksonville Humane Society. (Do it for the puppies and kitties.)

This event brought to you by Jacksonville Car Culture, Grassroots Motorsports, Hagerty, Cars & Coffee at the Concours and Deremer Studios. 

We’ll vertually see you this Saturday.

I am working Saturday.  Will you guys post the prop on here so I can take the picture Friday?

This is a rad idea. Do we have to use Facebook?

I don't think I've logged onto facebook in years, but I may have to just to submit a photo for fun.

Cool to see the interest. I don't think it would count as an official entry, but you could post photos here as well.

I'm still interested in this idea.  I'll try to participate if I have the item in question

I may have stolen this awesome idea for my old college car club. What a fantastic idea!

This is as cool idea. With the weather getting warmer, I miss those early morning cars and coffee meets.

And the prop for tomorrow's virtual Jacksonville Cars & Coffee has been announced.

From their Facebook page:

Details:
Entrants must post photos of their vehicle(s) with a coffee cup/mug/thermos in clear view. Photos without the prop will not be judged or qualify to win. The reason we are doing it this is to try to keep folks from posting glamour shots of someone else's car that they found on Google. You may post more than one vehicle and in more than one category, but only ONE PHOTO PER VEHICLE PLEASE. Pick your favorite shot! If you do not have a driveway or do not want to include the background, close up shots are absolutely fine. An engine bay, a wheel or grille. No problem. Creativity is key, but entrants must own the car and take the photograph (a family member/friend may also take the photo but make sure you let us know who took the photo so we can give them credit if we share the image). No gathering please, just you and your car and a family member if need be.

Getting them all washed up for the car show. Yes I do have an affinity for early-2000s car styling.

folks who have facebook could do it there and here, while folks without could do it here?

Yes, you can post photos here. We'll make it a subclass. 

How about this: If we get at least 7 entries here on the site, I'll find a special prize for that special someone.

OK, I'll post my pictures here, too.  These are ones I took today for the Cars and Coffee page before I realized it would be limited to a single photos.  This photo was my official entry.

Gertrude really likes the car.  (...and yes, I took her for a drive around the block because she was so expectant.)

Other pics

....and I don't have the #WeldPorn skills that some of you guys do, but I was not displeased with this base for a turn signal housing

Last pic:  the window sheet I have used at some car shows

Totally unofficial and you totally didn't hear this from me, but this might not be a one-time occasion.

I rolled it back in the shop before reading the coffee cup bit, but I promise, this was taken today.

Does that at least mean I beat Angry, since I got it outside?

Nice sternum but that passenger is missing their epidermis. Nothing humerus about that.

Thanks for the link to your build thread.  I really like it...it reminds me a bit of the bad news T

the miata parts mean it is probably a heck of a lot more fun to drive, though, than that model T.
