The buzz surrounding the September 2015 Automotive Addicts Cars & Coffee event was electric. As an official show sponsor and September’s manufacturer co-host, Mazda treated the crowd with a fun no-hassle peek at the all-new 2016 Miata MX-5 and the fun to drive new crossover, the CX-3.
Mazda representatives were on hand to answer questions and give out swag, including travel mugs, duffle bags, pens and every single piece of Miata literature that John Blackman and his team could fit into his CX-9 SUV.
Special thanks to Jim Sparks and the First Coast Miata Club for arriving at 6:45am with a large caravan of Mazda vehicles, banners and signs to set up for the event.
Many thanks to the Jacksonville Mazda Owners Club for joining us and bringing information about the upcoming Mazda Meet and Eat event on September 19.
Thanks to sponsors Shay Woodard and the Performance Wealth team for bringing out the official Performance Wealth Miata and to The Law Offices of Randy Reep and Maserati of Jacksonville for supporting the show.

JEA was also on hand to kick off National Drive Electric Month. Featuring a variety of electric vehicles, including BMW’s new i3, representatives from the utility answered questions about the companies exciting role in making electric car ownership a great fit for the first coast.
Automotive Addicts is grateful to long time sponsors The Tom Bush Family of Dealerships for bringing Mazdas and the BMW i3 to help make the car displays perfect.
While the rain may have kept some away, the turn out was still incredible. Malcolm and I are so grateful to everyone who comes out on the second Saturday of every month to make Jacksonville’s long-running original Cars & Coffee event a huge success.
Looking forward to seeing you all on October 10, 2015 from 8-11am for next month’s show!
