It is that time of the year again, and as soon as we win the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, the classic and collector car communities will be throwing the biggest party in the 42-year history of the COA (formerly known as Meadowbrook). And this year we will be showcasing a large group of E-Types near the entranceway to the car show to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the most iconic of all the famous Jaguars. So save the dates now and book your reservations soon. (see Note 1 below)
Two of the most exciting attractions for this year are (1) a special parking area for E-Types next to the entranceway to the field, and (2) a hospitality tent on the field for the exclusive use of JAGM members and their invited guests.
Here are some more highlights for this year’s car show:
Friday – July 23 – The Motoring Tour sponsored by Hagerty Insurance Company is scheduled from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. No specific announcements have been made yet as to the details for this event. However, we have already assembled a team of individuals to support the Motoring Tour.
Saturday – July 24 – The Cars and Coffee event is being sponsored by LBI Limited (Keith Koscak) again this year and all JAGM members are invited to attend free of charge. It is held in front of the Inn at St. John’s from 7:30 to 11:30 am.
Sunday – July 25 – Although the official opening of the COA event is at 10:00 am, we need to be on the field not later than 8:00 am to make sure our tent has been properly assembled, the tables and chairs are in order, and our show cars are in proper form. (see Note 2 below)

1 For out-of-town participants, we have reserved a block of rooms less than a mile away from the COA event and will be sending out that information to all JAGM members who respond to this solicitation to participate.
2 There will be a menu of charges to attend the several events scheduled during the three days of COA, but a pre-paid parking pass and two admission tickets will cost only $75. Please compare this to either Amelia Island or Pebble Beach and you will readily admit that COA is a screaming bargain
