The First Coffee & Classics a Success

First Coffee & Classics Winnetka

Thanks to everyone who made the first Coffee & Classics a success. It was a blustery morning at times, but drivers came from near (a few blocks) and far (Palentine) to grab a cup of coffee and chat it up with other classic car enthusiasts. There was a healthy mix of cars and people– Porsches, BMWs, Jaguar E-Types, VWs, big power Cameros, a Renault and a Lotus Elan.

At 9a.m. drivers started pulling in. Shahin was there early to be the great ambassador of the Fuelfed spirit. George with is green E-Type was the first to arrive. Then Dan and his red 911 Carrera showed up. Followed quickly by the deep-rumbling crazy-clean Cameros & Mark S. with his Renault R5 Turbo. Then that familiar straight pipe wail that only an air-cooled flat six can belt-out came closer and closer. Yep, it was the elusive Chris J., one of the founding members of Fuelfed, gracing our presence with his track only 911.

Most of the drivers were looking under the hoods, sharing stories and tech tips until noon. It was a great day for cars and drivers, and most plan to return next month (Oct. 31). Could be scary (sorry).

Hopefully all drivers got their honorary Fuefed magnet. If we missed anyone, please contact us and we’ll send one out asap. Please specify size small (1.5″) or large (3″).

Thanks to Café Aroma for letting us use your café as a gathering place and for having plenty of good Meinls coffee and pastries available.
