Cars & Coffee at the Concours allows individuals with vintage, special interest and collectible vehicles to gather on the same show field used to display vehicles entered in the following day’s prestigious Concours d’Elegance.
With growth year after year, the event now includes over 450 vehicles and thousands of spectators. Coffee and donuts are available to enjoy. Manufacturers celebrate their heritage with designated car corrals and invite the public to enjoy an up-close look at their newest vehicles. For the past three years Automobile Magazine has used the venue to announce their Automobile All-Star award winners.
Automobile Magazine revealed the Automobile All-Star Award winners at Cars & Coffee at the Concours in 2019.
Building on last year's success, The Amelia continues to enhance Cars & Coffee at the Concours for 2020. Paul Teutul Jr, from American Chopper and Paul Jr. Designs, will be on hand to present two "Chairman's Choice" awards designed and built by Paul himself. Rod Emory of Emory Motorsports will present the "Outlaw" award to the vehicle that best evokes Emory's "outlaw" builds. Pixar's Jay Ward will select a new "Pixar Pick." Popular YouTubers will be on hand to document the event and meet with entrants. Celebrated drivers will mingle with the crowd, stopping for photos and to chat with attendees.
Along with the wide variety of vehicles welcome, Cars & Coffee at the Concours will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Nissan Z car and the the arrival of the new C8 Chevrolet Corvette with focused car corrals. Owners of Nissan/Datsun Z cars and Chevrolet Corvettes of any year are invited to apply to be included in these special celebrations.

The Nassau County Road Department will begin the Annual Road Overlay Program on or around July 22, 2019.
All roads in the overlay program will consist of "clipping" grass and soil off of the road edges, milling sections of the roadway (which may create dust), "tacking" the roadway before paving, overlaying the roadway with a new layer of asphalt, temporary and permanent traffic stripping, and road shoulder repairs from the new construction.
The County's Capital Improvement Plan adopted on September 18, 2018 included $2.5 million in Fiscal Year 18-19 funding for Pavement Management Programs to include Overlay Projects. The following roads were prioritized at a Workshop held on April 22, 2019 based on the following criteria:
- Citizens served
- Quantity of potholes
- Condition of service (cracking, etc.)
Road Overlays are typically a fast-moving operation. During construction, there will be periods of high noise levels.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
During construction, roads will occasionally be reduced to one lane traffic. Expect some delays, crews will make every effort possible to limit the travel delays.
Pedestrian or bicycle traffic are not permitted within the construction zones due to safety concerns. Crews will ensure there is a safe path of travel for children at bus stops.
There may be short periods of time that you may not be able to enter/exit your driveway due to the construction. Crews will keep this minimal as possible and will be on site to advise when it is safe to travel through the construction area.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP
Drive Slowly through the construction area as there are many workers present
Avoid parking or leaving items in the street if possible until after the project is completed
Do not drive on freshly placed asphalt or striping. Crews on site will advise when products have cured enough for travel.
Any questions or concerns, please call the Road Department office at (904) 530-6175 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
