“It would be a drab world without meaningless social aggregations. There would be a lot fewer smiles.” — Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
It didn’t take long to put a SNO hat on our first grandchild. We’re really getting old, because as of 2021, she’s almost ready for high school!
Wear your SNO colors proudly
We have two SNOgear choices available for modest donations (this is, after all, a not-for-profit venture):
a. Vinyl stickersof the club logo. They come in two sizes, 3.5″ and 4.5.” These are long-lasting, exterior quality stickers, with adhesive backing. They are a $4 donation each, including postage within the U.S. If you’re outside the U.S., we may need to add a little to cover the extra mailing cost. Please write and ask: sno at gwandrw dot com.
b. Vinyl Stickers of the club logo for German cars. These are new and are available only in the 3.5″ size. We hope to add other marques in the near future. We’re asking the same $4 donation per sticker, including postage to most places.
To order your stickers:
E-mail sno at gwandrw dot com and I’ll give you my mailing address.
PayPal gladly accepted.
As grandchild number two proves, you don’t have to be more than four days old … or even awake … to enjoy a fabulous SNO hat. In the photo below he’s thinking, “Hmmm, I can drive Gramp’s Alfa in how many days … 5,826?
More Ideas for where to place your SNO logos:
A SNO logo makes a nice addition to the already lovely Maserati Ghibli of founding member Richard Lane.
Alex Csank points to the SNO sticker on George Schweikle’s autocrosser,and the ever creative Pekka Rossi shows us what a committed Alfista drinks in Finland.
Here’s my GTV and three others showing their SNO colors at Concorso Italiano, Monterey, California.
No joke, Germany’s Uwe Reuter put the SNO logo on his speedo.
The logo looks good on Richard Lane’s Maserati Ghibli and on the sleek sides of Bonnie, the world’s fastest Alfa Romeo, (232 mph at Bonneville). It also looks just right on the jacket of the late Phil Hill. Okay, we cheated on this one, but the others are real. And yes, those are Jim Hall and Alain de Cadenet with Hill. Taken by me in the role of sneaky paparazzi at Laguna Seca.
The logo looks like it belongs on Steve Smith’s 1959 Sprint Coupe … and it does. Steve is a SNO co-founder.
The next time you strap yourself into your airliner, as Pekka Rossi does, be sure to make sure your SNO logo is plainly visible, fully functional, and in view of both pilots.
