Fuelfed Coffee and Classics Theinsville, WI This Sunday 5.19

May 18, 2019

.

Fuelfed is excited to be bringing back its tradition of Coffee & Classics® gatherings focused on classic European cars to the quaint village of Thiensville. Milwaukee area classic European enthusiasts will now have the opportunity to share their passion with other like-minded drivers at the very same location Augie Pabst and Briggs Cunningham did back in 1959,

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Thiensville is for Fuelfed members AND non-member enthusiasts and collectors with their Classic European cars (pre-1990).

.

.

Thiensville is a small village nestled along the Milwaukee River north of the city. Its business district consists of many historic buildings that have been converted to small shops and businesses. We will be parking on quiet tree-lined Green Bay Road where the old Mill Race Motors once hosted their C&Cs back in the 1960’s. Shully’s Catering will be open for those looking for coffee and easy to carry sweets and savories (or bathrooms), as well as Fiddleheads Coffee Roasters and Artisanal Bakery, a short walk across the mid-block bridge.

Sunday, May 19

9:00am to 11:00am
On Green Bay Rd at Green Bay Rd & Elm, in east downtown Thiensville, WI

Our man Martin is excited for his second Mercedes Benz feature marque event! They plan to have some dedicated space for the three pointed star, but will still have space for the other great European classics attending. Everything gets started at 8am at the Hardy Park Bistro – 21 SW 7th St, Fort Lauderdale. Phil will have the coffee out, and will start serving his delicious breakfast sandwich special around 9. We hope to see you there.
