Fuelfed OPEN in Lake Forest Starts Hot, Finishes Chilled

Everyone wants the 2014 driving season to start already, but Mother Nature has been more fickle than an old E-Type in a damp garage this year. That said, Sunday, April 13th, started out sunny and warm, but suspect drivers went to bed the night before, writing off the morning due to the 70% chance of rain inaccurately predicted.

Cars started rolling in by 8:00am, but one was already there waiting to come out of hibernation. Lou’s incredible 1938 Peugeot 401 Cabriolet set the tone for what we can expect coming out of the woodwork for Coffee & Classics® in 2014.

The Fuelfed OPEN is a newer Fuelfed event, that opens and closes our driving season. It is also open for all members to bring what ever car they want. Allowing those who have more than European classics in their garage to get equal face time. So we see modern super cars, vintage American iron as well as the European classics all playing nice.

We had around 70 cars arrive by the time the wall of fog rolled in off the lake with its 50º temps, signaling the mass exit.

Overall, drivers were excited to get the season rolling, many sporting FFG100  paraphernalia.
