It’s Ferrari Month in Winnetka!

September 21, 2017 by


Our sixth annual Ferrari feature at Coffee & Classics Winnetka is this coming Sunday, September 24th. With over 60 Ferraris on display, it is one of biggest displays of four-wheeled Italian artistry anywhere. Continental Autosports will be bringing some of their exclusive favorites as well.


With over 160 classic European cars in addition to the Ferraris on display, our September Coffee & Classics is one of most popular car events of the season. As such, there will be no Day Passes or Modern Member cars (Ferrari excluded) allowed in the display areas…sorry.

In addition to the Ferraris, we are raising money for the American Red Cross to help those hit hard by hurricanes Irma & Harvey. 100% of Sundays’ proceeds will go to the Red Cross. Please look for the white buckets at the gates and yellow table and donate. Our brother and sister enthusiasts appreciate it.

The red starts at 9:00am.

Special British Treat This Sunday at Coffee & Classics

July 25, 2017 by

After a long weekend of vintage car debauchery up in Elkhart, it’s time to get ready for this Sunday’s Coffee & Classics in Winnetka. This month we have a special treat at 10:30a.m. The north gate will part and a parade of 30 MGs of all vintages will make their way down Lincoln Ave and turn east on Elm towards the lake. Should be quite the rolling display of classic British iron.
