I need some shirts that don't embarrass my wife in public, or even in private for that matter. Where can I get some cool shirts?
I plan on picking up a new GRM shirt and the "i void warranties" shirt from gearheadshirts.com. Where else can I find some cool shirts? I saw a guy wearing a shirt that had an exploded view of and engine, another guy had an exploded view of some webbers?

So let me get this straight, would a shirt of an exploded view engine be considered a shirt that would or would not embarrass the wife?

Enthusiast Apparel is one of my favorites. I have a whoole "favorites" tab at home of automotive shirt sellers. I'll post up some more when I get home from work.

Yeah, I should clarify. Many of my shirts have either been stained because I said "no honey, it'll be fine. I can re-ring an AMC inline 6 in a suit and not get it dirty" only to find out I'm wrong, or they are just worn out. So, if it's new and doesn't have evidence that I use my shirt to clean my tools before they go back in the box, she'll be ok.

Evidently, my Fox Honda shirt is embarrassing.

I have been looking for shirts like that too. SWMBO doesn't like most of my car shirts.

Hey that's US! Thanks conquest! We've got some great generic car guy shirts coming up including one I'm hoping to post tomorrow featuring the artwork of Peter Aschwanden, Illustrator of several "Compleat Idiots Guide.." books in the 70s and 80s. The first is this great spark plug drawing he did for the VW book.

More on Peter here www.peteraschwanden.com

For FSAE West this week, I'm buying a plain light blue shirt, and using a white paint pen to write MATRA across it in big letters.

You guys are posting all of the ones I have bookmarked at home -- thanks for saving me the trouble. I just got the Stig family decals for my b-day last week (2 sets, one for each car because the wife likes them too).

My Cousin and I are friends too, they bought me the Save the Stick t-shirt last year for my birthday.

The AW11 shirt looks awesome as does the Petrol Sexual.

Wal Mart sells 4 packs of Hanes pocket T's for about $10.. the dark ones don't show grease, and the lighter colored ones are cheap enough that you can just throw them away when they get offensively dirty..

it don't get much more "car guy" than that..

I searched on Cafepress for some neat shirts, Autocross, etc.

Hit up the local sanctioning bodies/event organizers, etc.

Found some interesting geeky shirts on shirt.woot.com and the like.
