PATIPATINA – 
STEERING WHEELS, TOOLS & CLASSIC CARS

During my time as active hunter and collector of vintage steering wheels, collecting information about old Momo steering wheels has always been tedious. A brochure here, a small article in some forum, some knowledge I gained talking to people at swap meets. But there was never a source where I could find the information I was looking for. That’s what I want to achieve with patipatina.com and I want to encourage each and everyone to contribute.
