What is Fuelfed?

.

What started in 1998 as a small club amongst friends who love modifying and racing their German cars, has now grown into a private enthusiasts club of over 550 members with a large contingent of vintage car owners. Fuelfed focuses on driving, socializing and promoting the passion of unique European automotive ownership. It has always been about WHY WE DRIVE, NOT WHAT.

Established in a north side garage, Fuelfed avails track events, designs private road tours and frequents drinking establishments through out the Chicago area.

Our monthly Coffee & Classics® gatherings in Winnetka have set the benchmark for enthusiast camaraderie and European classic car variety.

Fuelfed also believes in supporting small local businesses with our original Spontaneous Combustion Thursday evening gatherings along the North Shore.

Most importantly, Fuelfed has taken the lead in exposing the next generation of automotive enthusiasts to the classic car lifestyle. We support mechanical stewardship and the local organizations that sponsor young technicians. Our Future Enthusiasts Drive pairs interested kids (parental consent required) with Fuelfed members for a short tour in a classic car through Winnetka after Coffee & Classics each month.

      Thanks Scott.

      Didn’t know Angela had a brother who was into cars, let alone into working/designing some kick-ass customs.

      Mind if I give your blog a shout-out on Fuelfed?

      Regards,

      Brian

    Stumbled onto Fuelfed through the Coffee & Classics poster now found in establishments all around the Northshore.

    Love the philosophy of an irreverent, fun, car culture group.
    Cars are fun…………….lets have serious fun with them………..
    and NOT be so Serious!!!!
    Why does this type of group exist in California in so many places and not here in Chicagoland?

    Is the Fuelfed philosophy the answer to our prayers?

    We can only hope so……….

    You’re Fuelfed blog has evolved into a soulful vision far more interesting than most of the rehash car cramp that’s out there. Actually I arrived here from a Nürburgring forum on an unrelated topic. Worth surfing sometimes. Thanks.
