Fuelfed Water, Wood & Wheels Tour 2017 (W3)



Calling all classics!

Why just limit the vintage motoring lifestyle to pavement, when water can add a splash (sorry) of speed excitement? Our combined club event will be what we call Water, Wood & Wheels Tour or W3 for short.

Starting at 8:30am on Saturday, September 23, 2017, we’ll be touring scenic roads to Lake Geneva for lunch and then over to the Abbey for the Geneva Lakes Antique and Classic Boat Show (GLACBS).

The GLACBS is an annual antique wooden boat show attracting the top national collectors for a weekend of boating fun, water & cocktails. Located at the picturesque Abbey Resort in Fontana, WI, the GLACBS is always classic Americana at its best. Classic Chris-Crafts, Rivas, Centuries, Gar Woods are all represented. Runabouts, Sportsman, Commanders, Speedsters are all moored for your viewing. At 4:00pm is the boat parade around Lake Geneva. Work it right, and you could catch a ride around Lake Geneva in a 1948 Sportsman.







This is a casual touring event suitable for veteran classics mechanically sound enough to travel 150 miles. We’ve chosen varying scenic roads to give enthusiasts a mix of landscapes. Plan on driving for 2.5 hours without a break (or break-down as the case may be).

Please arrive at the departure location with your tanks full and IPass ready. At the boat show, Fuelfed members with classic cars will have private parking next to the show for our own little C&C. There is a $10 parking fee, but there is no entrance fee for the boat show. Everyone is free to wander as they want at the show and depart on his/her own. There is no set departure time or route back. It will be getting dark by 6:30, so most will take to highway 50 driving east to 94.

Unfortunately, space is limited to just twenty five classics this year. Members may drive their American classics as well. Please register below.

$40 event fee (includes the $10 parking fee) is payable at the event. Lunch not included in price.

8:00am drivers meeting inside the Lake Forest Oasis (LFO). A second departure location near Barrington area may be added if enough interest.

    When I joined FF, I registered 4 cars, two classics & 2 late model Europeans – 2005 Porsche Turbo S & 2011 Lotus Evora. Are the late models ruled out? Kind of like to use the Lotus for this tour, If not eligible, will drive 1971 Volvo P1800. Thanks.
