Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Since 2010

August 30, 2019

.

Fuelfed has a long history with Winnetka and it’s hard to believe we’re almost through our tenth season of Coffee & Classics. We are grateful for the residents and the village that have supported our events all these years. One of our proudest accomplishments over the years is educating the next generation of car enthusiasts. We’ve received hundreds of emails thanking us of for quality events and keeping it true to what our classic culture is all about…camaraderie.

But we received a recent email that struck a real chord. The above picture is from 2011 and picture below is from 2019. A father and son tradition to be proud of.

Zuffengruppe the Pusher

August 9, 2019

.

You see them everywhere. Coffee & Classics, MotorGearo and McDonalds.
Red one, blue ones, black ones, older ones that are faster than you.
Some have four, some have 6. All are flat.
Some are boosted, some are outlawed. All are meant to be driven.
If you can’t get enough for your air-cooled high, then Zuffengruppe 2 will be your hallowed pusher.

Beautiful Twin Lakes, WI will play host to 100s of vintage air-cooled Porsches from 11:00 to 3:00pm this Sunday 8.11.19.
