1981 Porsche 928 5 Speed Manual

January 6, 2018 by

Posted 1.6.18

 

Another Fuelfed exclusive…an early Porsche 928 in the highly desirable three pedal form. We also know this car and its owner and if you’re a member, you do too.

We’ll let the owner tell his story…

..

.

“15 years ago the car was living in Atlanta at a well known 928 shop. It was on their lot having had the color change already (silver to black). I am unsure who they acquired it from, but they sold it to a father who brought his son’s 928 from Davenport IA area to them to have it tuned and upgraded in various respects. On his return trip he bought it off them and brought both cars back.

.

.

He and his son passed leaving this car to his next son. It was garage kept, but that son was not a “car guy” and didn’t take it out much. At 72k miles the odometer was disconnected while tracing down a slow drain. The mileage is believed to be no more than 74k original to the body and engine.

.

.

The suspension is in excellent condition, the interior leaves a little to be desired. I am selling the car as a running driving project. I acquired it from the last owner a little over a year ago with intent to restore. I currently have a 931 as a personal project and a short list of customers waiting for my services. I will be pleased to offer this 928 to a new home. It comes on no name 5 spoke wheels. For a little more I will sell it on phone dials, and if the price is just right I am willing to let it go rolling on a set of 1991 GT wheels.”

1995.5 Euro Audi S6 Avant 6 Speed

December 31, 2017 by

.

Posted: 12.20.17

The 6 speed was an Euro only option in 1995.5. The 6th gear lopes this Q-Car at 2500rpm while doing 84mph. The legendary 5 cylinder-20v is the bullet proof workhorse that made Audi the king of Group B rally championships. This one is strong, quiet and more importantly, unmolested. Surprisingly, the suspension is free of the usual quattro rattles. The recent maintenance shows it’s strength here. And the best leather sport seats in the business make for a high quality analog driving experience long absent in todays robo-boats.

This Euro hot rod should be considered a driving restoration for it’s rarity in the US. While the original paint may show some of its NY roots, it drives like the performance wagon it is. The under carriage is clean as is the perfect black leather sport interior. Yes, we know the car and have driven it.

In true Fuelfed spirit, the owner is not interested in seeing his classic cannibalized for an S3 tribute.

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics FTL

December 16, 2017 by

.

While us rust-belters brace for the coming polar vortex we call the second season, our Fuelfed brothers to the south in Fort Lauderdale have been busy driving their classics. The array of European classics has being expanding as our man Martin holds court each month at Coffee & Classics® FTL.

Martin explains below.

.

.

If you weren’t around for the November Coffee & Classics Fort Lauderdale, well, you missed a pretty amazing event! There was a little bit of everything, German, Italian, Swedish and English. We’re still hoping for something French to grace us one of these days. (insert French car reliability joke here)

.

.

The iron butt award definitely goes to Chicago Fuelfed member Joe R. who towed his fantastic little Messerschmitt convertible all the way from Sarasota to be with us. It was also great to have first timers Steve S. and his monster 300 SEL 6.3, and Richard P. join us with his gorgeous 300 SL Roadster. A big thanks for Jon Van Woerden for taking all the pictures.  I’m sure many of you will want to peruse them. Thanks again to all of you who’ve been with us from early on or who have joined us over the last three years. This event is what it is because of all of you and your great cars.

Cheers Martin!

The Enthusiasts Shop

Fuelfed-Finish-line-caps

Friend and Fuelfed member Hugh R. has been the curator of Barrington’s classic car enthusiast’s boutique The Finish Line for years. This holiday season Hugh has again opened a seasonal shop in downtown Barrington at 220 S. Cook. We thought we’d pay a visit to The Finish Line to see what he’s up to this year.

.

Barrignton-Christmas

.

The quint downtown area of Barrington was alive with Christmas activities as we made our way to the boutique. As we walked in, Hugh was there to greet us and shed the unique history for every item in his shop.

From vintage driving caps to Cuban Gran Prix posters signed by Fangio, from C-Type gear shift knobs to an F1 nose cone, The Finish Line has quite the spread of automobilia and clothing sure to make the quality short list of any Fuelfed enthusiast. All items are authentic and hand picked by Hugh to present the highest quality, so don’t expect to find a $5 fake Ferrari hat from China. Fuelfed always supports our local merchants and we highly recommend that you drop that mouse and use your right foot to get to Barrington, it’s well worth the drive and make sure to bring your beautiful co-pilot.

Fuelfed TFD17 Snow Tactics

November 10, 2017 by

.

Despite the polar outlook for TFD17, all our drivers are committed to making this event a true adventure. In true Fuelfed Spirit, many have made last minute adjustments to their cars to handle whatever Mother Nature has in store.

TFD17 is Here!

November 8, 2017 by

.

As Fuelfed members make final preparations to their chariots for this weekend’s legendary driver bootcamp, the Hammrod sits in its own dust waiting. Waiting in its battle scarred kit from its gloried past. Waiting to unleash all its politically-incorrect, fuel-belching FUry. Waiting to uphold the proud spirit of an event driven by real men who use their right foot and counter-steer to trim slip angles. Waiting for Saturday. Waiting for Fuelfed TFD17.
