Newfoundland Motor Association - St. John's. Reader Gary Bruce sent in a jpeg of this badge with this note:

"I was wondering if you had any knowledge of the Newfoundland Motor Association. All I can find is that there was a yearly meeting held on May 3, 1932. I found this metal emblem at a yard sale and would be interested in any info you could provide about it."

We did a little research in a couple of what seemed like obvious sources but turned up nothing. We would appreciate hearing from any reader who can provide information on the association.

Since the subject of this week's column is car badges (they look super on those grilles and bumpers) we have included a selection of five others sent along by a local collector.
