Hot Import Nights made it’s way into Jacksonville, Florida this past weekend and we made the trip up from Orlando to join the fun. It’s been a while since HIN in Florida has been held in an indoor, convention center location; so this was a good change for a lot of us (most of us have grown accustomed to hot-outdoor shows). In the Christmas spirit the GodSaveTheClown Mini Cooper showed up decked out in holiday decorations; wearing a giant Santa hat and lit with Christmas lights. The Mini drew in crowds all day which earned it the Best of Show award.

Of course with Hot Import Nights, the models come out in full force and always put on a show of their own. I tried to get photos of most of the girls but missed a couple. None the less we all had an amazing time and can’t wait for the next show.
