As our monthly Cars & Coffee meets have been getting bigger and bigger we had a nice little treat this month. The Suncoast British Car Club sent us an email saying we will be invaded by the British for the April meet. They rolled into Suncoast Motorsports with over 20 little British cars and helped us break our attendance record with an amazing 87 cars. Guests saw everything from a Lingenfelter supercharged Corvette Grand Sport to a Porsche Carrera GT and even a 1,000 horsepower Toyota Supra Turbo. And as always at Suncoast, Panera bagels and Starbucks coffee keeps everyone happy.
On December 1, 2012 Suncoast Motorsports in Sarasota, Florida hosted the 2012 Holiday Toy Run, with all proceeds going to the Toys for Tots foundation. The event kicked off with the monthly Cars & Coffee meet, followed by a spirited 80-mile road rally through the countryside, and arrived back at Suncoast for a cookout. Over 50 cars attended Cars & Coffee in the morning and 36 cars made the journey on the traffic-free roads in East Sarasota County.
An entire pallet box was overflowing with toy donations and a check for $350 was presented to the Toys for Tots foundation. Thank you to everyone who donated and participated. We’ll see you all next year! Continue reading

All makes and models welcome! Continue reading
On Saturday June 16, 2012 Luxury4Play’s week long automotive journey hit beautiful Tampa Bay and duPont Registry’s monthly Cars & Coffee gathering. The goldRush Rally, celebrating 4 years of chaos, brought out the big guns this year. The infamous L4P/Platinum Motorsports matte white Bugatti Veyron was accompanied by two more Bugattis, along with Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, Rolls Royces, Bentleys, McLarens, and a wide array of exotic cars all stickered up in gold decals.
Luxury4Play’s insane creation and week long journey is coming to an end tonight. The infamous goldRush Rally, now on it’s fourth adventure, made a stop at the duPont Registry headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida for a monthly Cars & Coffee gathering and they stole the show. Not one, not two, but three Bugatti Veyrons rolled in with the gR4 teams. Here is a quick preview of the action featuring BC’s matte white Bug. Stay tuned for full coverage from today’s event.
It’s been a little while since I’ve updated this site. After dealing with massive computer failure, a move into a new apartment, all of the holidays, and the fantastic news that a baby is on the way, I kind of let my site get away from me.
I’ll update this post with content from the last few Cars & Coffee meets in Sarasota. As the founder of this event I’m glad to see it getting bigger and bigger, with the array or beautiful automobiles getting significantly larger. We’ve had some big time players come out as of late. Most notably a black Ferrari Enzo, an orange Saleen S7 Twin Turbo, and a pair of His and Hers Nissan GT-Rs, both highly modified.
My computer suffered some catastrophic failure and was down for about a month so I’m combining the photos from Sarasota’s very own Cars & Coffee from September and October. With each and every month we’re seeing new faces and new wheels. It’s always nice to have more people join us be welcomed by the regulars. Following the October meet we went on a short cruise along beautiful Siesta Key in Sarasota, which happens to be the #1 rated beach in the United States for 2011. Just four cars joined us this time; a gorgeous red Ferrari 360 Spider, a loud and mean Ford GT, a sleek Audi R8 V10, and a genuine right-hand drive Nissan Skyline R33. Thanks to Jason, Andy, Chris and Cory, and Derek for coming along.
The July edition of Sarasota Cars & Coffee didn’t start off quite as planned as we woke up to rain, thunder, and lightning over 4th of July weekend. That didn’t stop the true enthusiasts from heading down to Suncoast Porsche and enjoying their Saturday morning. Our second meet wasn’t as large as our first meet, understandable considering the weather, but the array of cars was nothing short of amazing. Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s, a Ford GT, and a blown Shelby GT500 were a few of the notable attendees. It was also a nice treat to see a very rare Jaguar XJ220 in the service drive. The following photos were shot for one of my partners and featured on their homepage. Check out ExoticsAndLuxury.com on the web!
I took the initiative to organize a monthly Cars & Coffee event for my hometown, Sarasota, Florida. I’ve been to a few different C&C meets in Florida and they are always a hit. We have so many exotic and sports cars in our area that I made it a goal to get one started when I moved back to Sarasota.
I started attending the Orlando Cars & Café meets back in March 2010. Hosted by the Orlando Automotive Club and Café Motorsport, this is a monthly meet where automotive enthusiasts come together to share their passion and excitement for cars of all makes and models. I’ve met some great people and have seen some breathtaking cars the few times I have gone. The following photos are a compilation of past times I’ve attended the Orlando Cars & Café meets.
