W.O. Stinson & Son CAR SHOW SERIES
Each year we team up with our friends at Campbell Ford to bring forward an awesome series of classic car events in the Ottawa area! This summer we have held several events already and have several more to go before the series is over. Each year we finish the series off with a huge event at the Metcalfe Fair in the Fall. This year, we have been blessed with great weather and excellent turn outs at our events. The Classic Car Show Series allows us to touch base with the classic car community and make great connections with other car enthusiasts. We love classic cars and all things that go VROOM! Many classic car enthusiasts seek us out because of our unique line of specially formulated motor oils and lubricants and our extensive collection of high performance race fuels including the newest edition to our roster- Sunoco Race Fuels.

3rd Annual Ride for Robin
Since the events beginning, W.O. Stinson & Son Ltd. has been deeply involved in this annual charity motorcycle run in support of The Wings of Phoenix Foundation. This event is a ton of fun and organized by the most amazing and committed individuals you will ever meet!
The Wings of Phoenix Foundation was founded in 2001 by Glennis Easey and Dr. Pierre Turgeon, and is dedicated to providing team based brain injury rehabilitation for persons with an acquired brain injury. When Glennis’ husband, Robin, a former Ottawa police officer, was shot in the head in September 1984, Glennis and Dr. Turgeon, who had been a key element during Robin’s journey after head injury, chose to dedicate a huge part of their professional lives to helping others who have sustained injuries to the brain.
The Wings of Phoenix Association is unique– it is the only registered charity in the Ottawa area providing brain injury rehabilitation to individuals and their families who otherwise are unable to access treatment.
For the past 2 years the Ride for Robin has kick off from our Head Office site at 4726 Bank St. This year the Ride for Robin is being held on AUG 12. The ride will begin at our head office location at 4726 Bank St. and end at the Royal Canadian Legion in Kemptville Ontario. This year the Wings of Phoenix and the Ride for Robin has extended their rehabilitation services and support to veterans who suffer from P.T.S.D and their families.
