Zuffengruppe the Pusher

August 9, 2019

.

You see them everywhere. Coffee & Classics, MotorGearo and McDonalds.
Red one, blue ones, black ones, older ones that are faster than you.
Some have four, some have 6. All are flat.
Some are boosted, some are outlawed. All are meant to be driven.
If you can’t get enough for your air-cooled high, then Zuffengruppe 2 will be your hallowed pusher.

Beautiful Twin Lakes, WI will play host to 100s of vintage air-cooled Porsches from 11:00 to 3:00pm this Sunday 8.11.19.

Fuelfed Coffee and Classics Winnetka This Sunday 7.28.19

July 25, 2019

.

Proud to feature MG, Triumph & Austin Healey this Sunday morning in Winnetka.

Due to construction that has started on the both Oak and Cherry St. bridges, we ask drivers to enter on Oak as usual, but from the east. Tower to Sheridan or Winnetka Ave. to Sheridan are your only options. You will not be able to enter from Greenbay Rd.

Sorry all Winnetka events will be for current Fuelfed members and featured marques only. This means no Day-Pass for your 2019 Lambo and your buddies R8.

Coffee & Classics This Sunday in Thiensville

July 20, 2019

Our Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Thiensville this Sunday morning 7.21 from 9:00am to 11:00am.

Yes, it’s the Historics at Road America, so join us before you head up to Elkhart.

We honor the old Mill Race Motors location at Greenbay Rd. and Elm in downtown Thiensville.

Shully’s will be serving coffee and pastries.

Come join us for some vintage European camaraderie.

Time to be Judged

July 17, 2019

Fuelfed is honored to be invited as a concours judge this weekend at probably the oldest vintage car event in the country. Yes, we’re talking about Road America in Elkhart Lake. Since Fuelfed events bring the top collectors together in a relaxed social format, it will be interesting to flip and now judge them on many levels. Remember: Fuelfed stickers earn more points! ; )

Fuelfed Coffee and Classics Barrington This Sunday, July 14

July 12, 2019

The elder products of the largest European manufacturer have been shy to join in. So this Sunday C&C Barrington is featuring VW to offer a warm and welcoming 13mm wrench to our Wolfsburg brothers.

The Foundry of Barrington, IL

Ambrosia will be serving up coffee & pastries, and Region will have coffee and grab-n-go breakfast burritos & fruit.

Our Club Event Guidelines

1. We do not allow any soliciting, nor marketing of your car, events, or services at any Fuelfed events. Our spotters will remove and record your efforts.

2. Coffee & Classics is a private club event for current Fuelfed club members. However, if you have a classic European car manufactured prior to 1990, you can make a donation of $10 at the main gate to show your car. We encourage you to join Fuelfed and your $10 will be credited to your membership dues.

3. Please arrive at 9:00am, not 8:30am. And, do not park in spots reserved for Tensile Strength or Coldwell Banker.

4. Those posting pictures online, we ask that give the courtesy to let others know you were at Fuelfed Coffee & Classics. And yes. Fuelfed has an official Instagram account #fuelfedcarclub.
