Finally, Mother Nature cooperated with glorious weather to compliment the outstanding classics gathered. Over 160 European classics and future classics made their way to Winnetka for our May, 2014 Coffee & Classics.

First, we must thank the Winnetka police department for working with us and allowing us to block off Elm at Greenbay to provide a larger venue on the majestic bridge. We were also provided extra barricades to keep everything safe and under control. We must also thank our Fuelfed member volunteers Kathleen K., George K., Ken B., Rich C., Joe R., Jeff B., Mark H., for giving an hour of their time and working the gates.

So many special classics to oogle over, but one just stood out above the rest. Something you will never ever see on public roads, but then, our members drive their cars. The 2014 Amelia Island winning 1956 Chrysler Ghia-bodied concept car, completely blew everyone away. We were very honored Fuelfed member Joe B. graced us with such a priceless gift.

This years’ format now allows us to showcase members cars on the Elm street bridge, adding more capacity and better vistas. Since there are no longer any cut-through traffic to pose a hazard, we will spotlight the one members’ car that we feel is the most unique at the gathering, by having it park front and center on the corner.

The outstanding mix of European classics continues to amaze and has again raised the bar and the camaraderie even higher. While so many try to emulate Coffee & Classics, no other midwest event even comes close.
