Rallying Redefined

January 21, 2023

The Fuelfed Buckeyes & Bourbon Rally takes the bespoke approach that Fuelfed is known for in rallying and expands to a new elevated format. First, we escape the long cold Midwest winter for warmer climates to explore the uncrowded and lush rolling roads only the western Appliachan range can provide.

Second, we’ve secured two unique accommodations rarely available for a relaxing multi-night stay. Dining & cocktails…what is a Fuelfed rally with out unique culinary & cocktail experiences? Buckeyes & Bourbon provides 5 days and 1500 miles of incredible driving with safely sampling the historic distilleries of Kentucky.

Finally, we are curating just 15 vehicles manufactured prior to 2000 to ensure a great mix of classics. All roads, accommodations and venues are well vetted by experienced Fuelfed rally organizers.

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.

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.
