We couldn't have asked for better weather for our May Cars & Coffee! Thank you to Jamie Parker with the Savannah Morning News for taking these great photos. We had a heavy helping of Fords on display as we welcomed our title sponsor, J. C. Lewis Ford. A special thanks to Espresso Hill for providing the coffee again this month and to the Suites at Station Exchange for being our May sponsor.
We can't wait to see you guys and gals again at our 2015 season premier this Saturday, March 7th! This year, we will have some new and exciting features as well as a very special guest this week.
One of our clients at Arts Star Classics, Fred and Elisabeth Smits from New Zealand, have spent two years prepping a 1957 Mercedes-Benz Ponton and planning to take it on a 5 year world tour. Year one is here in North America. On August 3rd of last year, they started on the other coast and after some 14,000 miles are now in St. Augustine and will join us with their car and camper for Cars & Coffee this Saturday! You will want to plan to stay a little later for at 11:00 we will be treated to a presentation featuring Fred and Elisabeth's planning and preparations, and the story of their tour to-date. The presentation will include historic videos of Mercedes-Benz racing and Road Rallies over the last 50 years. There will be opportunity for questions.
Afterwards, we can all head to Fish Tales for lunch on the river!
I know some of you have been working on new acquisitions and readying your trusted rides. This is the time to bring them out and show them off!
We will have a special new 2015 pin waiting for you!

We couldn't have asked for a better Saturday for the April Cars & Coffee. We had beautiful weather, a great crowd and lots of beautiful cars, unique cars, and one extremely unusual c! Thank you to our sponsor, Fish Tales. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch on the Great Ogeechee River.

Participants can join our cruise to Fish Tales for lunch. We will leave the museum grounds shortly after 11 a.m. Hope to see you! Click here to review their menu and pricing.
A big "THANK YOU" to all that attended our very successful inaugural "CARS & COFFEE" March event. Forty cars turned out on a day with perfect weather.
We found we could park up to seventy-five cars on the beautiful museum grounds. I hope to see growth to that level in the coming months. We are encouraging Car Clubs to make this a cruise event so we can feature their group on any given month.
We took a number of pictures of the first event but not nearly as many as you all may have taken. Click here if you would like to share your photos.
