Coffee & Classics® Barrington

Fuelfed is proud to continue its tradition of Coffee & Classics® gatherings focused on classic European cars in the beautiful village of Barrington, IL. Classic European enthusiasts in the northwest suburbs have the opportunity to share their passion with other like-minded drivers.  Sundays May 6, July 15, and September 9, 2018: 9:00am to 11:00am. Event parking is for Fuelfed members and their Classic European cars (pre-1990) or Modern European cars.  Non-members are welcome to park their European cars with Fuelfed members for a suggested $10 donation (to be applied to membership if joining within 7 days). There will be a general parking area for all others. See maps below.

An Iso Grifo parked next to an MGB-GT, or a Porsche 959 next to a Bugatti Type 35? Maybe a Ferrari 250 GTO and a Karmann Ghia cabrio…you bet.

Coffee & Classics is not a juried car show, but rather a casual Sunday morning gathering to keep the old gears oiled. This event is not about how much money you paid for the newest Italian super-car, but rather about driving your European classic as it was meant to be driven. From Aston to Zagato, or Alfa to VW, it doesn’t matter, just drive it.
