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 brothers and sister enthusiasts appreciate it.

The red starts at 9:00am.

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Hinsdale is Almost Here!

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.

Special British Treat This Sunday at Coffee & Classics

July 25, 2017

After a long weekend of vintage car debauchery up in Elkhart, it’s time to get ready for this Sunday’s Coffee & Classics in Winnetka. This month we have a special treat at 10:30a.m. The north gate will part and a parade of 30 MGs of all vintages will make their way down Lincoln Ave and turn east on Elm towards the lake.

Our Annual Fuelfed MotorGearo This Weekend June 2-3 2017

May 31, 2017

.

The horn sounds at 9:30am this Friday morning at the beautiful Village Park 200 miles north of Chicago as 30 Fuelfed drivers and their vintage European cars pull out for the start of a 500 mile motoring journey we call the Fuelfed MotorGearo 250. Our unique two day vintage motoring rally blends the best roads over 8 stages with the finest culinary experiences the midwest has to offer.

This driver’s event has earned it’s reputation as “the best driving experience you can have for under $1000 anywhere.”

This year, we are honored to have Nikko Salgado working his camera magic as he documents and produces what will surely be a stunning account of the on and off road antics.

We are proud to have the support of local partners in bringing the MotorGearo to the road in 2017:

March 10, 2017

For those members of Fuelfed that have frequented our exclusive events, you will recognize these incredible cars. The RM auction at Amelia Island this weekend will see ten Fuelfed member classics cross the block. While we’re sad to see them leave the club, but grateful to have had the opportunity to spend time with each of them (even driving one at 10/10ths around Gingerman) and appreciate how they’ve been part of the fabric that has made Fuelfed so very special.

We won’t go into detail about each car, we’ll let the pictures do the talking.
