Southern Stars Section & Mercedes-Benz of Orange Park host a Cars & Coffee!


On November 14, 2020, MBCA Southern Stars Section & Orange Park Mercedes-Benz co-hosted a Mercedes Cars & Coffee event. Southern Stars Section brought a couple dozen donuts, and Orange Park Mercedes provided the coffee and beverages for our guests. Prospective members and dealership customers visited the cars and chatted with owners, and a couple of new memberships were formed! There was a small threat of rain that we avoided, and most people were able to make it in a Mercedes that could get rained on! The antique and vintage vehicles seemed to have remained safe in garages that day! Guests were elated by having something to do and to reconnect with people, while socially distancing.

One of the stars of the Cars & Coffee was a 2015 C63 Edition 507 shared by Nathan Avilés. It was recently wrapped in AMG Solarbeam Yellow! Follow him on Instagram to view more photos (https://www.instagram.com/jumbonate/). Members Bill & Sherry Cirmo brought their beautiful 1987 560 SL that was purchased brand new by Bills father! New Member Jackie Caravello shared her gorgeous SLK 300, and her husband Bob drove her 2011 GL450. She had both the “newest roadster” and the “largest vehicle” that da! New Member Bruce McCormick brought one of the SL’s in his collection, a 1985 380 SL, which was the also oldest car of the day. One of our Board Members Jeff Rotatori, attended in his 2015 S550, which was also the only sedan that day!

Vice President David Wommer drove his 2009 AMG SL 63, Membership Chair Rob Schlessinger drove shared his 2005 SL 500. Sheldon Hofferman and his wife Gail shared their newest car, which was a modern-classic 1995 E320 Cabriolet, our most vintage cabriolet that day. Treasurer Jackie Keener brought her 2020 GLC 300 which was loaded up early that morning with the section tent, table, several chairs, our banner, boxes of literature and of course donuts for Cars & Coffee! It's the largest Mercedes out of the four current Southern Stars officers (Cabriolet, Roadster, GLC & GLK (Not including spousal Mercedes!).

There were coupes, roadsters, cabriolets, sedans and a few SUVs that attended! Something for everyone to enjoy! Everyone shared stories and laughs, and new friendships were formed! A good time was had by all!

Our next Cars & Coffee will be on December 12th, 2020 from 8 AM to 10:30 AM. Which Mercedes will you share?
