Yes, Fuelfed is expanding to greater Milwaukee. No parking lots, no parks, strip malls. We are going back to where import cars first landed in the WI after WWII. Yep, the quiet little mecca known as Thiensville, WI. Continuing our 10 year traditional theme, Coffee & Classics Thiensville will be on a quiet historic street like C&C Winnetka & C&C Hinsdale.

From 9:00 to 11:00am this Sunday July 22, we will gather at Greenbay Rd. & Elm in downtown Thiensville.

There will be a caravan of classics meeting at the Lake Forest Oasis on I-94 for the pilgrimage north. The group will be meeting at 7:00am.

Fuelfed OPEN…Rain, But Not Rained Out

June 11, 2018

Despite the constant rain, Fuelfed members still made their way to Lake Forest for the OPEN.

Lou brought his Miller Indy car and Michael, his McClaren powered Sting Ray.

That in a nutshell is what makes the OPEN great…seriously rare member cars you won’t see anywhere else.

But what makes Fuelfed events special has always been the camaraderie. Some members hung under the tent and chatted over provided coffee (thanks Joe J.) and most others walked around in the rain happy to endure some wet shoes in exchange for in the metal conservation.

The OPEN is where our members can bring what ever interesting car they want to drive so it’s always an interesting mix.

The Fuelfed OPEN This Sunday Morning

June 7, 2018

.

Straight off the MotorGearo and into the Fuelfed OPEN this Sunday. The OPEN is for all current Fuelfed members and their American or European classic, modern sports or super cars. In other words, a big family reunion of sorts.

In 2018, there will be a suggested $10 donation for non-members displaying. This $10 will credited to your membership if you join the club.

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Winnetka This Sunday Morning

May 25, 2018

.

As a leader in European classics, it only made sense to demonstrate the lineage of some of the great marques in a club. Hence, this Sunday at our Coffee & Classics Winnetka we will start our Heritage Series with Aston Martin. As part of our continuing effort to educate the next generation of enthusiasts will pair our members’ classics with the newest offering from a featured manufacturer.

The event starts at 9:00am.

Coffee & Classics is Fuelfed event for our members to display their classics and not an open car show.
