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.

In Honor of Joe Sterling

November 9, 2010

Joe Sterling Swagger Wagon

 

A good friend of my father and famous editorial photographer, Joe Sterling, passed this Sunday at 74 years young. Joe has known me since the day I was born.

In recent years, Joe came back into my life for various reasons. He was an early  pioneer at capturing the youth culture in Chicago back in the early 1960’s. Today his works have permanent places in MOMA and Getty.

Joe may not have been a car guy, but he definitely had the Fuelfed spirit and certainly knew how to capture it.

God’s speed, Joe, may you rest in peace.

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.
