Fuelfed Coffee & Classics Hits the Northshore

September 9, 2010

The Fuelfed origins are rooted in the Northshore. So it’s only fitting that the Fuelfed fraternity host its first Coffee & Classics in east downtown Winnetka. Not since the mysterious demise of the Highland House has there been a venue for classic car and motorcycle enthusiasts to mingle with like-minded drivers east of 41.

This not an organized car show, rather a casual Sunday morning gathering to keep the old gears oiled. This event is not about how much money you paid for the newest Italian super-car, but rather about driving your classic as it was meant to be driven. From Aston to Zagato, or Alfa to VW, it doesn’t matter, just drive it.

We’ll be meeting on the 550 block of Lincoln just north of Elm in east downtown Winnetka (east of Greenbay Rd.).

The dates are Sunday, September 26 and Sunday, October 31.
9:00am to 11:00am.

Delicious Meinl’s coffee and pastries will be available for purchase at Café Aroma. Be sure to mention Fuelfed at the counter.

Please respect the neighborhood with NO hot-rodding or open exhausts. We want this event and location to become a Northshore tradition.
