The Birthplace of Fuelfed Coffee and Classics

September 27, 2022

Yesterday as we returned to the birthplace of our Fuelfed Coffee & Classics in downtown Winnetka some 12 years ago, we reflect on how our simple concept (thank you Highland House for being the first in 1963) pioneered the future of what is now the ubiquitous cars and coffee format.

Yesterday’s Fuelfed Coffee and Classics was far beyond the 24 first cars to arrive with George Klein and his E-Type being the very first that very cold September Sunday morning in 2010. In fact, we never dreamed to have over 220 European cars support our mission in Winnetka. Yet here we are, true to the original vision, grateful for the 1000s of people we have met and very proud of the large community we have built around a then small club of drivers we called Fuelfed.

8AM on the last Sunday of the month, there is only one place to be on the Front Range, 8th and Pearl on the West End of Boulder’s picturesque downtown. Despite Covid, 2021 has been a great year for car enthusiasts to gather, amazing cars and entertaining people.

How often do you see a 1936 Auburn Boattail Speedster, vintage BMWs, Minis, Ferarris Alfas and a dozen air-cooled Porsches gathered a public street?

Come out and join the fun September 26th!


July 25, 2021

Yes this morning was a big homecoming for Fuelfed the club, Winnetka the birth place of Coffee and Classics and members able to reunite in a grand way. But this morning was bigger than that for these two. You see, John (left) and Hank were best friends in high school and went their own ways shortly there after. Both are Fuelfed members not knowing each was too. In talking with Hank and him mentioning his history on the Nothshore and Winnetka as well as his friend from long ago, we were able reunite these two with hugs and tears ensuing. Fuelfed has always been about its members and incredible moments like this are what it’s all about.
