Fuelfed Homage to Imperial Motors

September 10, 2021

What a treat it was to pay homage to Imperial Motors at their original location since 1953 in Wilmette.

Original founder Alan Aron greeted everyone and had the opportunity to once again see some of the original E-Types he sold new.

It was heart warming to see and hear everyone share their stories they had with Imperial, some from the 1960s, others from the 2000’s. Great to also see a big showing of British iron.

We encourage our members to drive their vintage British metal Thursday for this special treat back in time.
