The Birthplace of Fuelfed Coffee and Classics

September 27, 2022

Yesterday as we returned to the birthplace of our Fuelfed Coffee & Classics in downtown Winnetka some 12 years ago, we reflect on how our simple concept (thank you Highland House for being the first in 1963) pioneered the future of what is now the ubiquitous cars and coffee format.

Yesterday’s Fuelfed Coffee and Classics was far beyond the 24 first cars to arrive with George Klein and his E-Type being the very first that very cold September Sunday morning in 2010. In fact, we never dreamed to have over 220 European cars support our mission in Winnetka. Yet here we are, true to the original vision, grateful for the 1000s of people we have met and very proud of the large community we have built around a then small club of drivers we called Fuelfed.

Zuffengruppe 5 August 21

August 6, 2022

The Midwest’s largest vintage Porsche event is 2 weeks out.

August 21, 2022
9am-2:00pm
Burlington Airport in Burlington, WI

@zuffengruppe is the Midwest’s original gathering for air-cooled and pre-1995 water-cooled classic Porsches.

Also new for 2022 is a special display area for pre-registered modern 911s, Boxsters and Caymans.

Zuffengruppe events have always kept things fresh with unique locations by learning from each previous event. 2022 brings us to the Burlington Airport in Burlington, WI. Vintage Porsches will be joined by vintage aircraft including historic Warbirds; most will be flying in from around the Midwest. Historic aircraft will be displayed next to Zuffengruppe Classics with our Vendor Village set between the two areas.
Zuffengruppe is always proud to support small and local by raising funds with a pancake breakfast served by the local high school and lunch served by the Burlington Fire Department with proceeds going to each.

Registered Porsches (classic & modern) will receive a reserved display space and the collectable Zuffengruppe swag.

Saturday night, August 20 is in the works for vintage Porsche street display in downtown Burlington in the quaint “LOOP” district from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Limited to 30 curated classic Porsches only.

Fuelfed Swap Meet Cancelled

May 20, 2022

After considerable debate we have decided to sadly cancel our annual Swap Meet due to iffy weather forecasted. We are very bummed to have to make the call, but feel the outdoor Swap Meet needs to be enjoyable for everyone.

We want to thank everyone for signing up and we plan to continue the Swap Meet tradition indoors during the winter season.

Special thanks go to Sol and the Perfect Power team for jumping through hoops and their patience.

The Fuelfed Spirit is Ageless

November 1, 2010

We would like to believe that everyday a new driver discovers that connectivity to driving that is at the very heart of the Fuelfed spirit. This spirit has been around since the invention of the combustion engine and has transcended all its evolutions. To the benign road-appliance driver, it’s impossible to understand.

With the great success of the Fuelfed Coffee & Classics, we’ve met some truly fantastic people and their inspiring car stories. The majority of which, have been driving their classics from when they bought them new. And you know, they are as excited today, as they were some 40 plus years ago. Truly inspiring.

Murray Fowler embodies this Fuelfed spirit.
