Savoy Speed Shop Sweatshirt


**MADE TO ORDER! Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery.**
In the late '60s, Jim Savoy opened Savoy Auto Parts in San Francisco. Now, it was no secret that the Black street racers were mixing it up with the Black Panther Party at the same time. But it wasn't generally known that the Black Panthers were holding meetings in the back of the Savoy shop in those years, too. Jim was gonna use his business to do what the government was too broken to do for the people: unite everyone with the common love of horsepower and there just couldn't be a better window decal than the original Savoy Auto Parts logo to wrap it all up in one solid statement.

Jim had a buddy who was a d.j. on a local funk station and an illustrator and had him come up with this iconic design for the auto parts store. We found an old decal on the rear window of his '51 Henry J street freak gasser years ago and thought it would make a bitchin' sweatshirt.

So, fist in the air, brother and get it ON with your own Savoy Auto Parts sweatshirt. Endorsed by the Father of Black (horse) Power, himself. Savoy Auto Parts is long gone, but the legacy is still there in the Bayview neighborhood of Sucker Free City.

Black crewneck sweatshirt in all sizes. "Open Late" art on the center front. "Unity!" logo on the back.
