Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Starts in Winnetka This Sunday Morning

April 26, 2018

.

Has it been nine years already since Fuelfed® started the famous Coffee & Classics® Sunday morning gatherings? The Crown Jewel of Midwest car gatherings returns to beautiful downtown Winnetka this Sunday, April 29th from 9:00am to 11:00am for the first C&C of 2018.
Yep, rain or shine.

.

.

First a little Spring garage cleaning.

1. Coffee & Classics is a private club event for current Fuelfed club members. C&C is not an open car show for every & any car. There are plenty of other car events with that format. However, if you have a classic European car manufactured prior to 1990, you can make a donation of $10 at the main gate for entry with your car. We encourage you to join Fuelfed and your $10 will be credited to your membership dues.

Members who have not yet received their 2018 membership packets, your name be will on the list at the main gate.

2. Please arrive at 9:00am, not 8:30am. Our village event permit states that we keep these times in check. Village parking enforcement will be in play before 9:00am and after 11:00am.

3. 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.

4. Finally we do not allow any soliciting, nor marketing of your car or services at any Fuelfed events.

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics FTL This Sunday Morning

March 24, 2018

.

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics® may be sleeping until April up here in the Hinterland, but C&C Fort Lauderdale keeps meeting every last Sunday of the month year-round.

Yes, there are other generic cars & coffees in the Miami area, but none have the classic European good stuff like C&CFTL. So if you’re lucky enough to be in the area, it will be worth the venture to the shore.

8:00am to 10:00am
Southwest corner of 
Las Olas Blvd. & A1A (Immediately south of the famous “Elbo Room). Boccaccino Pizzeria and Cafe (at the south end of the lot) opens at 8am for breakfast. Set your GPS to 401 S. Fort Lauderdale Blvd.

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics FTL pulled in a large number of Euro classics this morning, despite the national concours happening a few miles away. This Peking to Paris Mercedes set the tone. Dig the Safari front bumper.

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics FTL

December 16, 2017

.

While us rust-belters brace for the coming polar vortex we call the second season, our Fuelfed brothers to the south in Fort Lauderdale have been busy driving their classics. The array of European classics has being expanding as our man Martin holds court each month at Coffee & Classics® FTL.

Martin explains below.

.

.

If you weren’t around for the November Coffee & Classics Fort Lauderdale, well, you missed a pretty amazing event! There was a little bit of everything, German, Italian, Swedish and English. We’re still hoping for something French to grace us one of these days. (insert French car reliability joke here)

.

.

The iron butt award definitely goes to Chicago Fuelfed member Joe R. who towed his fantastic little Messerschmitt convertible all the way from Sarasota to be with us. It was also great to have first timers Steve S. and his monster 300 SEL 6.3, and Richard P. join us with his gorgeous 300 SL Roadster. A big thanks for Jon Van Woerden for taking all the pictures.  I’m sure many of you will want to peruse them. Thanks again to all of you who’ve been with us from early on or who have joined us over the last three years. This event is what it is because of all of you and your great cars.

Cheers Martin!

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!

It’s Ferrari Month in Winnetka!

September 21, 2017

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.
