The 2013 Fuelfed Coffee & Classics season kicked-off with some ominous weather, but the car Gods spared us more rain and gave us sunshine by 11:00am.

First, a big thank you to Fueled members Brad T., Tyler B., Tim S., Bruce K., Chris R., George K. & Sam D. and of course Winnetka’s finest, for helping traffic the cars for the event! Without their help, we wouldn’t have been able to pull it off.

This year we have a new parking format allowing European, non-European and future classics to have their own zones. Everyone obliged and the crowds drifted between them with distinct crowds gathering at each.

We had the usual 110+ classics gather this month. Some notables were: Alans’ Gullwing, Steve’s Victress, Wingers’ BMW 2002 with matching trailer, our first SAAB Sonnet and Sunbeam Tiger, a pack of Citroens, a brace of R-Gruppe 911s, and every variety of Jaguar and MG, just to name a few incredible vehicles gathered.

Appropriately, Sheridan Road Magazine was there to cover the gathering and interview some North Shore members for their video documentary. More on that in the coming weeks.

Big supporter, friend and member Martin M. bid farewell to everyone as he spent his last minutes in Chicago at Coffee & Classics before departing to his new digs in FLA. Even local rally hero Bill Caswell joined in the farewell.

Overall, another great event with the best mix European classics and more importantly…great people.
