Barn Find Fiat

November 19, 2019 by

The huge network of Fuelfed members always uncovers the interesting. Yes, another barn-find sees daylight after 27 years.

It’s always the kind good-hearted people and their stories that we meet on these journeys that makes it good for the soul.

Driving Friendship

November 16, 2019 by

Got to see Ford vs Ferrari a little early via the #FCA & #Hagerty. Gotta say it was a lot more of the Fuelfed Spirit than expected. Mix Field of Dreams with LeMans and you’re close. Have now far more respect for Carroll Shelby and can relate with Ken Miles. If you actually work on your own classic and have competed in wheel to wheel competition like yours truly, you will be thoroughly entertained.
