My Hero Lives On…

It’s hard to believe I lost my father and best friend two years ago tonight. He never got to experience Fuelfed as we know it today. And I know he would have never missed a single Coffee & Classics. Life sometimes burns that way.

The above photo was taken by my fathers good friend and Time/Life photographer Michael Mauney sometime around 1978 in Michael’s driveway. That black 1972 280SE 4.5 served as the family tank after the ’67 911 rusted through.

Michael too, was a Fuelfed spirit, always driving a 356 or cool Mercedes coupe. Looking at Michael’s website refreshes the memory of what great photography should be.
