From Glenn Matchett – On July 8, 2017, I attended the monthly Orlando Cars and Coffee event (http://orlandocarsandcoffee.com/) and had a great time. The current location is 3251 N Ponkan Pines Rd, Apopka FL 32712, in a large gently sloped grass field on the property of Roseville Farms. It is a family-friendly event, and all the people I spoke with were pleasant. There are posted signs that indicate parking areas for different makes and types. Cars are parked in the sun, but there are plenty of shade trees on the north side to stand or sit under.
There was a total of six Porsches. I spoke with three of the owners, and they were from Citrus Region PCA. Other cars on display included two McLarens, a 1957 Corvette replica with modern features, Bentley, Maserati, BMWs, Corvettes, Camaros, Dodge Challengers, Ferraris, Mustangs, Nissan GTRs, a Lamborghini, hot hatches, sleepers, and some cool looking dune buggies.
Summers in Apopka can be intense. I checked the Apopka weather the day before and the air temp was 101°F. By the time I left, I looked like I had crawled out of a swimming pool. I am going to return to the show, but not until this Fall.
If you have any questions about this monthly event, contact the organizers via the link above. I had a few questions and they replied quickly. They even provided me with a Google Map link highlighting the route that their road rally would be following. I hope I’ll see some of you there in the future!
