Our Annual Fuelfed MotorGearo This Weekend June 2-3 2017

May 31, 2017 by

.

The horn sounds at 9:30am this Friday morning at the beautiful Village Park 200 miles north of Chicago as 30 Fuelfed drivers and their vintage European cars pull out for the start of a 500 mile motoring journey we call the Fuelfed MotorGearo 250. Our unique two day vintage motoring rally blends the best roads over 8 stages with the finest culinary experiences the midwest has to offer.

This driver’s event has earned it’s reputation as “the best driving experience you can have for under $1000 anywhere.”

This year, we are honored to have Nikko Salgado working his camera magic as he documents and produces what will surely be a stunning account of the on and off road antics.

.

We are proud to have the support of local partners in bringing the MotorGearo to the road in 2017:

BTR Chicago
Imports Unlimited 
Northshore Sportscars

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics® in Winnetka this Sunday Morning: 5.28.17!

May 27, 2017 by

 

.

Last month we had our first rain-out in the eight years we’ve been  holding the original Fuelfed Coffee & Classics® in Winnetka. Let’s hope we dodge another thunderstorm this Sunday

Sunday, May, 28th from 9:00am to 11:00am for the first C&C of 2017. Yep, rain or shine.

First a little Spring garage cleaning.

1. Coffee & Classics is a private club event for current Fuelfed club members. C&C is not an open car show for every & any car. There are plenty of other car events with that format. However, if you have a classic European car manufactured prior to 1990, you can make adonation of $10 at the main gate for entry with your car. We encourage you to join Fuelfed and your $10 will be credited to your membership dues.

Members who have not yet received their 2017 membership packets, your name be will on the list at the main gate.

2. Please arrive at 9:00am, not 8:30am. Our village event permit states that we keep these times in check. Village parking enforcement will be in play before 9:00am and after 11:00am.

3. Those posting pictures online, we ask that give the courtesy to let others know you were at Fuelfed Coffee & Classics. And yes. Fuelfed has an official Instagram account #fuelfedcarclub.

4. Finally we do not allow any soliciting, nor marketing of your car or services at any Fuelfed events.

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Barrington Recap

May 24, 2017 by

.

For last Sunday’s Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Barrington we started with questionable weather, but she held back to allow drivers to feel confident to bring their precious iron.

.

.

And out they came. Dennis debuted his new FrankenRacer based on a TR3. Robert’s Countach made it. We’re honored that Bob’s stunning silver 250 Berlinetta has become a Barrington staple. Detomaso Magusto… we’ll take two please. The other crowd pleasers were the fleet of Polish Fiat racers and military service truck. Mike’s Doretti and Bob’s unrestored black Ferrari 250GT PF never let down.

.

.

We want to thank Epicure and Ambrosia for serving up the coffee, pastries and brunch.
