Fuelfed 2019 Swap Meet Continues Success

The Fuelfed Classic European Parts & Memorabilia Swap Meet is and has always been a special experience. Since its inception six years ago, it has always been held at The Last Detail in North Chicago. Tom and Brian always have something interesting on display and in progress. The one of three Iso Griffo Specials was naked in the spray booth for all to look up its skirt. And, the room of Rolls was open to wander into as well, and what a treat.

2019 saw several new vendors including Ed and Mark, with a spread of vintage British bits and collectables. Gail brought her hand-made jewelry made of old car parts; some we’re sure were formerly Ed’s. Michael brought vintage motor art that was sold for charity and raised $900 for the morning. Not too shabby. Motorcultura was there with garage signage, Motorivet Gloves and the quite popular Canaffeine Coffee. The retro coffee cans were offered in two designs: Maranello & Gmund. Yes, Porsche edged out Ferrari in sales again. Yep, the ever-popular author Burt Levy was at it again, as were Lou, Rex, John and Hagerty to name a few.

But what sets our event off has always been the camaraderie. Yes, the lost art of conversation lives strong in this hearty group as members always seem excited to see each other after the holidays. The venue and petroliana shopping conspire to enhance the babbling. What better way to spend a winter’s morning?

Just a couple of shots from yesterdays’ Fuelfed Coffee & Classics in Fort Lauderdale. Quite the contrast from the zillion car shows where new exotics are required fare. Proud of how Martin has cultivated a great group of enthusiasts!

Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Fort Lauderdale This Sunday Morning

Despite our northern winter blight here in the Midwest, our brothers in Fort Lauderdale still host our Coffee & Classics on the last Sunday of every month. Our man Martin is excited for his second Mercedes Benz feature marque event! They plan to have some dedicated space for the three pointed star, but will still have space for the other great European classics attending. Everything gets started at 8am at the Hardy Park Bistro – 21 SW 7th St, Fort Lauderdale. Phil will have the coffee out, and will start serving his delicious breakfast sandwich special around 9. We hope to see you there.
