Fuelfed OPEN…Rain, But Not Rained Out

June 11, 2018 by

Despite the constant rain, Fuelfed members still made their way to Lake Forest for the OPEN.

Lou brought his Miller Indy car and Michael, his McClaren powered Sting Ray.

That in a nutshell is what makes the OPEN great…seriously rare member cars you won’t see anywhere else.

But what makes Fuelfed events special has always been the camaraderie. Some members hung under the tent and chatted over provided coffee (thanks Joe J.) and most others walked around in the rain happy to endure some wet shoes in exchange for in the metal conservation.

The OPEN is where our members can bring what ever interesting car they want to drive so it’s always an interesting mix.

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Winnetka This Sunday Morning

May 25, 2018 by


As a leader in European classics, it only made sense to demonstrate the lineage of some of the great marques in a club. Hence, this Sunday at our Coffee & Classics Winnetka we will start our Heritage Series with Aston Martin. As part of our continuing effort to educate the next generation of enthusiasts will pair our members’ classics with the newest offering from a featured manufacturer.

The event starts at 9:00am.

Coffee & Classics is Fuelfed event for our members to display their classics and not an open car show.




The Fuelfed MotorGearo Rally is One Week Out

May 22, 2018 by


Our third annual Fuelfed MotorGearo 250 vintage rally is now full and drivers are making final preparations to their classics. We’re excited to have another great curated line-up of cars running this year. For 2018 we have several rally veterans driving from as far a Colorado.



This year we’re seeing an uptick in British metal and downturn in German cars applying. The Italian mix has been consistent since the event inception. But everyone is well covered by the great job Hagerty does as one of our Vehicle Support Team.

We can smell the flourocarbons, cigars and cow pies already!
