About Fuelfed – What is it?


What started in 1998 as a small club amongst friends who love modifying and racing their German cars, has now grown into the largest private club for discerning collectors and enthusiasts of classic European cars & motorcycles. Fuelfed focuses on driving, socializing and promoting the passion of unique European automotive ownership. It has always been about WHY WE DRIVE, NOT JUST WHAT.

In 2010, Fuelfed became the originator of monthly Sunday morning Coffee & Classics®gatherings with its first location in Winnetka, Illinois. Fuelfed Coffee & Classics® gatherings are now held in Winnetka, Barrington, and Hinsdale in Illinois as well as in Thiensville, Wisconsin, Douglas, Michigan, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. These events set the national benchmark for enthusiast camaraderie and top collector car variety.

Fuelfed was founded on the spirit of driving and mechanical connectivity and has built itself with members who believe this same ethos.

Our club members enjoy our highly specialized road tours and rallies like our TFD series, W3, Fuelfed Fall Classic and MotorGearo 250 to name a few.

Fuelfed also believes in supporting small local businesses with our original Spontaneous Combustion® evening gatherings as well as showcase garage tours.

Our winter Swap Meet and holiday & spring cocktail parties are popular events in the off seasons.

    Stumbled onto Fuelfed through the Coffee & Classics poster now found in establishments all around the Northshore.

    Love the philosophy of an irreverent, fun, car culture group.
    Cars are fun…………….lets have serious fun with them………..
    and NOT be so Serious!!!!
    Why does this type of group exist in California in so many places and not here in Chicagoland?

    Is the Fuelfed philosophy the answer to our prayers?

    We can only hope so……….

    You’re Fuelfed blog has evolved into a soulful vision far more interesting than most of the rehash car cramp that’s out there. Actually I arrived here from a Nürburgring forum on an unrelated topic. Worth surfing sometimes. Thanks.
