The Unique Club with the Big Heart

Not only did our traditional Ferrari feature exceed expectations, but in just two short hours, Fuelfed and FCA members donated $1170.00 to the American Red Cross to help those US residents hurt by hurricanes Irma & Harvey. We are very proud of our Fuelfed volunteer dedication as well as our select car community and the great friends it has brought together.

Now that is the true Fuelfed Spirit!

Our sixth annual Ferrari feature at Coffee & Classics Winnetka is this coming Sunday, September 24th. With over 60 Ferraris on display, it is one of biggest displays of four-wheeled Italian artistry anywhere. Continental Autosports will be bringing some of their exclusive favorites as well.

With over 160 classic European cars in addition to the Ferraris on display, our September Coffee & Classics is one of most popular car events of the season. As such, there will be no Day Passes or Modern Member cars (Ferrari excluded) allowed in the display areas…sorry.

In addition to the Ferraris, we are raising money for the American Red Cross to help those hit hard by hurricanes Irma & Harvey. 100% of Sundays’ proceeds will go to the Red Cross. Please look for the white buckets at the gates and yellow table and donate. Our brother and sister enthusiasts appreciate it.

The red starts at 9:00am.

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Hinsdale

.

Fuelfed® is proud to be bringing its famous Sunday morning Coffee & Classics®  to picturesque downtown Hinsdale in 2017. Classic European car enthusiasts and collectors in Hinsdale, Chicago, and nearby suburbs now have two opportunities to share their passion with other like-minded drivers close to home.

If you have never been to Hinsdale, you will find it a nice discovery worth a return visit. The village is blocking off two beautiful tree-lined streets for us along Burlington Park, a block north of its charming downtown. Much like our flagship Northshore community of Winnetka, there is a European flair to the location with its cafes, restaurants and stores.

Fuelfed will be hosting its club gatherings the Sundays of August 20 and October 1, 2017: 9:00am to 11:00am. Event parking is for Fuelfed members and their Classic European cars (pre-1990). Non-members are welcome to park their pre-1990 European cars also. The nearby Metra commuter lot between Washington and Lincoln will be for spectator and general parking. See map below.
