    So how many FChatters do we have in North Florida? Central and South Florida seem very active compared to N Florida...... I wanted to attend Cars & Coffee in Oldtown, but won't make it this month, but was thinking we have some robust "Cruise Ins" around Jax.... anyone interested in connecting?

    Do you ever attend any of the Cruise-in events in N. Florida? I almost right across the St. Johns River from you, in Fruitcove/Switzerland area.

    I've been looking for some fun drives and meets around here as well. There's a PCA meet up once a month in amelia island. Last month my 911 was in the shop so I thought about bringing my scuderia, but was warned against it haha.

    Porsche stuff seems semi-active around here but just not as many car people in general in jax I guess.

    There are a lot of car people in Jax... trust me... they are just all Muscle Car guys.... I am one of those too, I have a 1968 Ford XL and a 1969 Mach I, and a 2006 Dodge Viper....... the Ferrary 456GT is a new addition that has opened up a whole new "car people" group to me!

    COVID has changed a lot in 2020... but there were several shows every year from Fruitcove Baptist Annual, to the Shriner Show, Cars & Coffee at Times Union... monthly Cruise-Ins....... Angel's Diner... I have not seen as much exotics ..... maybe we can do that in 2021?

    I did a show cruise in for Clay Cruisers,
    I did not find them too friendly to exotics, I stay away from them now.
    I did the Shriners last year and won 1st place for imports Image Unavailable, Please Login

    That is a beautiful 360!

    I havent seen any vintage fcars around here. Congrats on the 456!

    I will probably cruising around Saturday and Sunday this weekend. Great driving weather right now.

    I'm new to Jax, having moved here from Tampa last year. The only nice drive I know of is to Amelia and back. I enjoy heading down to ponte vedra too but traffic and lights on a1a defintiely makes for a more mellow cruise.

    Are you guys near the beach or further west?

    Mines in the shop right now and won’t be out until next week - then has to be delivered. So I’m thinking I’d be available next weekend if you guys want to do a drive

    Hey guys unfortunately it looks like I still won’t have the car back until next week. Been in the shop almost 4 weeks. Still open to meeting through once it returns.

    Let's definitely meet up..... there should be a cruise in soon at the PDQ on San Jose near Racetrack Road.... maybe we could plan to meet up there? It's usually on a Saturday.... the second or third Saturday of the month I think?

    Got a call back from mechanic yesterday and it was a “found something else” deal. I’m glad he’s being thorough but again still don’t have car. I’m gonna post when it gets back up here.

    They use to do a cars and coffee car meet up at the avenues every 2nd Saturday off the month, which would be this Saturday the 13th.
    But I think they stopped since covid? Would be cool
