      I’m finally giving in to requests &’trends’ of events like ours, and going with a black shirt this year …all together…’YAY” ! doesn’t cost any more just a little tricky in the art set-up dept. But no problem…..Now what to show ,what to show….Suggestions welcome …went the route for a few years showing Dover Legendary cars, then last year a “slice of History” shot of Bad News & the Little Giant…..Got a “good” idea? -post it here .Logo of course with the date ,etc.and always include our current sponsors.Oh …Last years shirt available at the store page.Was thinking of a ‘collage’ of Dover “visual”s…A ticket-a pit pass-the old sign-Trophy- bumper sticker-Win Decal-posters – famous car names the same way they were lettered …. kinda a collection of things ‘we call Dover”, all in an old timy ‘vintage’ setting.

      SIDE NOTE : All Eliminator Winners Will Get a “ELIMINATOR Winner JACKET” !

      SIDE NOTE 2: If you didn’t Get A Competitor Decal Last year (they were at the sign in- table at tech)…Send a stamped self addressed envelope and I’l Shot one out to you….Carolina Signworks, 704 S.Hancock St. ,Rockingham,N.C. 29379.

          Dino, I’m throwing this into the mix. I know you have used his car on previous t-shirts,
          but Sat. August 9th. is Billy Casey’s birthday. He would have been 68 years old. He is a
          Dover icon. Maybe you could incorporate that into part of the shirt’s design? Just a
          thought……ty

          Frank… 😎

              Got my vote for Bill’s 69 Camaro…that’s the inspiration for my Chevelle’s color. 😀

                Ok …moving along with design ideas. Black Shirt with Some cars we all know and I’m adding a Collage of memorable names of cars and drivers all mixed together . So Far on the list:
                Lagana ,Burgess ,Moroso, Hoffman, Skip North, Smokey & Grover, Egloff, Bows, Brazee Bros. & Sabis, Twistin Tex, Mone, Valentine, Viscome, Addesso, Terenzio, Shott Bros, Morehead ,Gunn, Smrtic , Abbott, Grady & Gommi, Prout, Noyes, Castaldo, ….who’d I leave out…..? Car Names….To match Drivers names ,like Black Arrow, Little Giant ,Bad News, Beeline, …Etc. where they apply. Kind a like those ‘graduation t-shirts ya see with all the class members. Understand ,we can’t put everybody on it or it would be the size of a tent…so ‘kinda’ the famous ones. AND…some of the old speed shop logos.

                    John Galli from Westchester Automotive, Paul Giachetti from Westchester Service, to name a couple. I got to go now down to My Garage and get my Baby Torque wrench and help Willie the Welder and Dave Daly tighten up their nuts 😆 😆 😆

                            Heres my 2 cents,put a majority of the design on the BACK of the shirt,and a smaller logo/design on the left breast,you’ll sell more shirts that way.All that screen printing makes you sweat. Just my opinion.

                              Use Right Guard. 😀 …Nascar, NHRA, Goodguys and most event shirts always promote the message on the front…Face to face contact. Been doing shirt design since the 60’s and follow accepted industry trends and procedures. Your idea good for a Club shirt or uniform ,where workers back is to viewer. Besides…Our title Sponsor is Showcased on the back in return for their support .Been thisway since 2009 and even way back in the 80’s for the Sycamore Summer Cruise Shirts I designed….don’t plan on changing now.

                                  Good Idea Woody…So Many Cars… so Many names …really would need a 4X8 to include Everybody…so we ‘mix’ it up each year…why a collage of names will be smaller per name and get more in .Also using a new print process …There’s Good -bad and cheap-don’t last …but we’re trying a new (actually Old technique) that even gives a vintage look to the print and cuts down on ink layers .FYI…most New shirts use a really not good, for longevity process, to Get it Done ‘Cheap & Fast” . Working on mock-ups now and will post my progress soon…Why I’m here working on sunday.
