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!

Fuelfed TFD17 Snow Tactics

November 10, 2017

.

Despite the polar outlook for TFD17, all our drivers are committed to making this event a true adventure. In true Fuelfed Spirit, many have made last minute adjustments to their cars to handle whatever Mother Nature has in store.

TFD17 is Here!

November 8, 2017

.

As Fuelfed members make final preparations to their chariots for this weekend’s legendary driver bootcamp, the Hammrod sits in its own dust waiting. Waiting in its battle scarred kit from its gloried past. Waiting to unleash all its politically-incorrect, fuel-belching FUry. Waiting to uphold the proud spirit of an event driven by real men who use their right foot and counter-steer to trim slip angles. Waiting for Saturday. Waiting for Fuelfed TFD17.
