Fuelfed Virtual Member Garage Night

April 18, 2020

Due to Covid-19 challenges we held a virtual Garage Night that was to be at Northshore Sportscars. Michelle and Norb did a great job with their video tour of their shop in the previous post.

Thank you to our members who submitted their garage projects yesterday. The above slide show takes a few seconds to start on its own.


Fuelfed Garage Night at Northshore Sportscars

April 16, 2020


Tonight we are virtually at Northshore Sportscars in Lake Bluff, IL for our traditional Fuelfed Garage Night. Michelle and Norb can’t says hello or shake your hand, but they can give you a tour of what they’re up to. Northshore not only sells vintage Sportscars as well as new Morgans, they rebuild and service them as well. They also provide controlled storage for classics as well.

Michelle will give you a walk-through of todays’ shop activities from what’s in the showroom to what’s being worked on.

We’re asking Fuelfed members to post on our Facebook and their Instagram accounts what they’re currently working in their garage. Please tag #fuelfedgaragenight and #fuelfedcarclub.

We’ll compile the best and make a short video posted here on Friday.
