Founded in 2004 by Malcolm Hogan, Jacksonville, Florida based AutomotiveAddicts.com was created for auto enthusiasts of all types. For the past 10 years AutomotiveAddicts.com has strived to give readers the most interesting automotive related material on the internet without recycling material from other networks. Whether you are looking for a meaningful review of new vehicle, an honest look at breaking automotive news, or helpful technical articles and information, AutomotiveAddicts.com is the place to go.


Automotive Addicts is also the founder of the Jacksonville Cars and Coffee event, hosting the monthly car show on the second Saturday of every month. The car show began at the St. John’s Town Center a little over five years ago, moving to the River City Shopping Center, Tinseltown, and finally back to the original location at the St. John’s Town Center. All locales had there pros, but none of them felt like home for the event.

In April of 2013, the Florida Times-Union approached the AutomotiveAddicts.com team and asked if they would consider hosting the event downtown at The Florida Times-Union headquarters at 1 Riverside Avenue. The location was ideal, central to the city, right on the waterfront and included a large covered parking area to accommodate the event in case of rain.


AutomotiveAddicts hosted the first Cars and Coffee at the Florida Times-Union on July 13, 2013. The new location was widely received by the Jacksonville car community. In a short amount of time the show began regularly attracting 400 plus cars and thousands of spectators, AutomotiveAddicts.com Cars and Coffee had found a home and solidified itself as one of Jacksonville’s premier car gatherings.

But that is not the end of the story…

In January of 2014, the Times-Union contacted Malcolm and asked if he would be willing to come on board with the paper and write a weekly column in the Saturday Drive section of the paper. Meetings were held and emails were exchanged. The new column titled, “An Addictive Take On Cars” debuted on February 8, 2014. Malcolm was then joined by AutomotiveAddicts.com senior editor, Chris Brewer in the February 22, 2014 column.

AutomotiveAddicts.com has also set up a section of the website that readers of the Times-Union can go to for more in-depth articles and reviews, videos and more by clicking on the Florida Times-Union Column link the top of the AutomotiveAddicts.com website or by visiting http://www.automotiveaddicts.com/category/tu

Posted by Malcolm Hogan in auto show, Automotive, Automotive Addicts Cars and Coffee, Cars and Coffee, Jacksonville, FL on 10 16th, 2013


The cooler October weather brought out some newcomers to our Automotive Addicts Cars and Coffee gathering for October 2013. Our event, held every second Saturday of the month, has become a major staple in the automotive enthusiast community in Jacksonville, Florida. This month’s attendance was around 250 vehicles or so. Previous months we have seen an average of about 400 cars. The cooler weather that we expect for November and December may bring out our normal 400+ vehicle crowd. We plan on having a few charities and donation spots for the holiday season. Please check back on the official event page for any updates.

Hope to see you in November (November 9th)!

Our official Cars and Coffee gathering for September 2013 was a celebration for having our event for 5 years now here in Jacksonville, Florida. The event kicked off with a full row of Porsches, in addition to our new 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet. Joining us from as far as Orlando, Florida were a few of our long-time friends in a modified Nissan GT-R and stroker V10 BMW M5 E60. The selection varied greatly as we witnessed many clubs joining in on the fun including many VW Buses, MINI Coopers and an onslaught of domestics in just about any flavor you can think of. We had an estimated total of 400 vehicles in attendance.


Part of the continued beauty and success of our Cars and Coffee event is we get a different mix of vehicles every month. We are looking forward to kicking off the October 2013 Cars and Coffee with some ‘red carpet’ treatment to whoever would like their vehicle photographed. We will have more information as the details come together.


We want to personally thank everyone for your dedicated support as well as the Florida Times Union for allowing this wonderful event to thrive and provide a home for automotive enthusiasts to all come together once a month. We look forward to having a few charities join in on our festivities so we can give back to our community and help those in need along the way.
