Hey all,

I finally got around to designing some new shirts. Here's one of the latest. Would you buy this? Many thanks to American Mel for the inspiration.

I totally love the saying. (no bias involved grinning smiley )
But not thrilled on the graphic. Never been a fan of water-colors.
Maybe you should use an aerial photo of Joel's property. grinning smiley Just Kidding!
Though he did have a pretty cool picture of a night-time shot of his tow-rig loaded with Corvairs a while back.

Here's a couple more versions:

(Sorry Mel, you get the caption, I get the photo! But I'll take it under advisement.)

The thing to consider is that these slightly-painted versions of the photos will print to a T-Shirt better.

I like some of Seth's tweak, and I will change the caption to "No one can own just one!" It has a nice alliterative flow to it.

All three will be available on the site soon.

Thanks everyone for the ideas and input. (For instance, it hadn't occurred to me to have the other versions.)

Cheers.

Is it a coincidence the LM cars look like show cars but the EM & FC's are parts cars? tongue sticking out smiley

I love that photo and I will, with your permission, use it in the future.

There are six new designs up now:

Mike McKeel needs all of them! As I've always said, they're like Lays potato chips, bet you can't have just one!

And I love the car hauler pic. Just wish it were loaded with show cars. grinning smiley

I appreciate the art work but the fist design is to hard to identify as Corvair for the average viewer. The other two photograph shirts would be ok if they were sharp cars and not junkers...viewers might get the wrong impression.
Photographs dont always make good T shirts, unless the elements of the picture are few and large. JMWO
