Chevrolet Maple Leaves & Toronto Maple Leafs

From Alex Emond:
"These Maple Leaves predate our flag by decades, as does our hapless Toronto team, 'the Leafs' --they can't spell and they can't score. What would Walt Whitman say--" Check out those leafs of grass"? I don't think so.
Every so often, I come across examples of the Made in Canada version. The first Chev was down in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan and the green one was up in Morse, just off the Trans Canada, east of Swift Current.  Cheers"--AE
 More Maple Leaves here.  More hapless Leafs here.
