Anyone wearing my shirts? Thanks for helping fund my EH project :)

Hi all

Just wondering if anyone on here bought one of my t-shirts either off ebay (a while ago) or redbubble? I've never seen one in the wild on a stranger before - If so, I hope you like it :)

Anyway, I just checked my redbubble.com account as I haven't touched it in ages. 590 sales to date for zero ongoing effort (plus another 300-odd on ebay a while back) but the important bit is that all proceeds have gone on the EH, tools and recently another car for motorkhana etc.

I won't put a link up or anything as this isn't intended as a sales/spam post, just expressing my thanks to anyone who has bought one - you've helped save another old Holden without even knowing it :)

Back story:
A few years ago when I got the EH I couldn't find much in the way of simple understated EH Holden t-shirts - so I made one myself. I then decided that if I couldn't find them then chances are others couldn't either so decided to start making and selling them. As funds came in I added a bunch of other cars and did alright out of it. Anyway, after a year or so our youngest went to school and the Mrs went back to work, others were starting to produce similar shirts and we couldn't be stuffed any more so we stopped. I dumped some of the designs on redbubble.com and have had a steady 'trickle' of income each month since. No effort, no new designs just a funds transfer into a bank account to keep my EH project and garage alive :)

As I said this wasn't intended as a sales pitch so I'd rather not put a direct link up - instead if you go to redbubble.com and search for "t-shirt holden" you'll see mine AND other people's designs.

FYI - Mine are all simple black shirts, white front on silhouettes and a few should come up first in the list. Personally, I believe the quality of the shirts and print we were producing ourselves was better than the digital prints redbubble do but we don't do it anymore and have sold off all our gear.

Cool :)

Yeah, we did a 73 GTS (had GTS grill). All shirts we made were white image on black shirts.
We stopped making/selling them on ebay in 2009 but several people had started doing similar by then and many more since (including some blatant rip-offs!). If it's from about that time or earlier it's most likely one of ours.

I still wear a stack of our shirts and they're all still like new - I put a lot of research into the best process/materials so I'm glad they've lasted.

Some example photos of the shirts we made and sold on ebay are here (there were more designs than shown in the second image):
