Southern Stars Section attended the Caffeine and Octane Jacksonville Event!

We had a terrific turnout at Caffeine and Octane Jacksonville, with Mercedes-Benz vehicles shared in the Central Lot, the Classics Lot, and several more throughout the event!

We had a fantastic mix of classic and modern Mercedes-Benz vehicles in attendance! We saw everything from a 300 SL Gullwing (Owned by the same gentleman for the last quarter of a century!) to a “Mercedes” SMART in Gulf livery from the Gulf Smart Racing series! We also saw a W201 190E Sportline that was shared, very neat. We had some of our favorite classic and modern Mercedes-Benz vehicles in attendance, including roadsters, sedans, wagons, and coupes! It was a great variety of Mercedes-Benz vehicles! Photos taken and shared by Section President, David Wommer.

Our favorite thing though was the passionate enthusiasts who showed up an hour or so early to secure a great spot with us! “The early bird gets the worm!” as they say, and we appreciate the dedication of our enthusiasts! Thank you to everyone who shared their Mercedes-Benz vehicles with us, it was great to hang out with fellow enthusiasts for the morning!

Which Mercedes-Benz will you share at our next public gathering, the July Caffeine and Octane Jacksonville?

Which Mercedes-Benz will you share at our next public gathering? 

Beginning around 7:00 am, Club leadership will begin to assemble in the “Central Lot” at Caffeine and Octane Jacksonville, to prepare for the event starting at 8:00 am and welcome fellow Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. Aim for gate #3, to the slight left of the “Exotics Lot” if approaching from the Southside Blvd main entrance. Vehicles that cannot remain in the Central Lot from 8:00 -11:00 AM are asked to park in the Exhibit Lot for easier entry and departure.

If you do not bring your own beverages, there are options galore! Chick-fil-A, as well as restrooms in the Avenues Mall food court, will open early for Caffeine and Octane attendees, at 7:00 am. (Yes, they serve coffee!)

From Caffeine and Octane Jax ( “If you’re displaying your vehicle, and you hope to be in the Central Lot, we suggest that you arrive by 7 am, at the latest.”
