The Fuelfed Motorgearo Cometh.

May 23, 2019 by

Just a week from our 4th annual vintage motor rally. Two days of driving bliss and culinary debauchery. As one driver put it in 2016: kinda like a shorter Colorado Grand with better drivers and no big egos.

Fuelfed Coffee and Classics Theinsville, WI This Sunday 5.19

May 18, 2019 by

.

Fuelfed is excited to be bringing back its tradition of Coffee & Classics® gatherings focused on classic European cars to the quaint village of Thiensville. Milwaukee area classic European enthusiasts will now have the opportunity to share their passion with other like-minded drivers at the very same location Augie Pabst and Briggs Cunningham did back in 1959,

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Thiensville is for Fuelfed members AND non-member enthusiasts and collectors with their Classic European cars (pre-1990).

.

.

Thiensville is a small village nestled along the Milwaukee River north of the city. Its business district consists of many historic buildings that have been converted to small shops and businesses. We will be parking on quiet tree-lined Green Bay Road where the old Mill Race Motors once hosted their C&Cs back in the 1960’s. Shully’s Catering will be open for those looking for coffee and easy to carry sweets and savories (or bathrooms), as well as Fiddleheads Coffee Roasters and Artisanal Bakery, a short walk across the mid-block bridge.

Sunday, May 19

9:00am to 11:00am
On Green Bay Rd at Green Bay Rd & Elm, in east downtown Thiensville, WI

Getting Ready to Drive

April 21, 2019 by

Same year, both coupes, opposite philosophy. More Fuelfed members submitting their cars coming out of hibernation.

Which would you drive to Coffee & Classics Winnetka next Sunday?

Through, Wind & Snow…

April 14, 2019 by

Tough group these Fuelfed members. Despite the snow, they came. Each wondering who was crazy enough to drive their classic on what appeared to be February 14 and not April 14. 26 members made the trek to Lake Forest. Some in moderns, most in classics. All were happy to be there. Three years now it either snowed or sleeted on what we should call the SNOPEN.

Fuelfed Lake Forest OPEN this Sunday Morning

April 12, 2019 by

So every April our OPEN in Lake Forest either snows or rains sideways. As our popular T-Shirt says: “Always Cooler by the Lake”. These two hardy members braved it in 2018. This Sunday looks to continue that tradition.

#Canaffeine coffee will be there to help ease the cold.

Looking forward to it.

Members know the details.

Fuelfed Rolling River Rally 2019

April 10, 2019 by

.

Fuelfed members have been asking for an interesting day drive and one that does not go to Wisconsin. In our constant quest to do things that are original, we decided to go south and visit our industrial roots.

On Saturday, May 11, we are teaming up with Rambler (no, not the car) to do a combined rally along the ICM canal and the Illinois river south to the hip warehouse district in downtown Peoria. We’ll conclude our drive with a closed-street classic car / motorcycle show with with local merchants offering moto-outdoor goods, food & drink.

This Fuelfed event starts at 8:00am and to meet-up with the Rambler guys at 10:30. They will lead us along their favorite routes following the majestic rolling tree-lined hills of the Illinois river. The street fest will start when we arrive around 12:30pm.

We’ll depart Peoria for Chicagoland around 4:00pm.

The Rolling River Rally is open to all Classic and Modern Fuelfed member cars.

Fuelfed Members Only.
