Canadian source for vintage sew-on/iron-on patches!

If you’re at all like me you know how enjoyable it can be to share your automotive enthusiasm by wearing crested/screened apparel featuring your favourite brands. Drop by any racing event and you’ll see what I mean.  It was and still is kinda cool.  And what kid growing up in the ’60s didn’t long for a Ratfink something or other?

Now there’s a Canadian source for what might be one of the largest spots on the planet for car related crests, patches and more.  While pricey, you’re bound to find that vintage emblem that no one else around is likely to have.  Here’s an example, can you guess what this little guy is connected to?  I’ll post the answer below.

A recent effort to find vintage Porsche patches led me to the Vintage Patch site and it felt like being a kid in a candy store.  Did I find what I was looking for?  Yes.  And you might recognize them as oldies and goodies when you see them on my racesuits.  Here’s a sample of what they have.

Now to the answer of the question: uᴉlɯǝɹפ ƆW∀

COVID-19 – A MESSAGE FROM JOHN BONDAR

Covid-19 Update From John Bondar

March 31, 2020 – Two weeks have passed since my last update and it seems like so much has happened during that short period.  In Ontario, our provincial government has declared a state of emergency, forcing business closures and prohibiting gatherings of more than 5 people – this directive is to be revised on April 13th.

While we wait for an official government update, we have made the decision to postpone all events scheduled up until mid-April. We are doing our part by keeping operations at a bare minimum.

New updates will be posted as soon as the situation evolves. Like you, we are monitoring and adjusting every day to a new reality during this uncertain time.

Please stay home, take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

John Bondar
President
