New Nostalgia T-Shirts from Dino

Postby Dino » Tue Oct 09, 2012 4:25 pm

I just Debuted some new designs at Our Last Dover Drag Strip Nostalgia Race in August...Really excited about this....what I Call the "1961 Retro T-shirt"..let me set you up. Lot of "Vintage" Rod, Drag and Speed Shop shirt designs have been cropping up in the last few years. All computer graphics program generated. Now first ...I like and appreciate the work of some very talented Artists, who do capture the look and feel of the period. Then there's reproductions being made of actual early and mid sixties (Even fifties) of what was done back then. With this project, I tried to design a shirt 'That Never Existed" But make it look like a reproduction of How they did it back then,and what It might have looked like, If in fact ,the owners had gotten them printed. So No computers or point & click fonts back then. You had to use press type or HAND DRAW everything ,to make a film positive and 'burn' your Screen to print the shirt. I figure they would have said" Copy the Entrance Sign" ....So that's what I did. I hand drew the Rail and the lettering in two color format. To refresh your memory...Heres the first entrance Sign.Took some artistic 'license' to fudge up some stuff and futher make it look even more authentic...'how it would have been set -up' by ...Who knows? "New Milford Screen Printing & Embroidery"?...remember...it was 1961. Then theres all the other sign designs that followed, mostly redone by me. One of the last ones is what I based the Nostalgia Drags Logo on ...but thats another subject:

Another Shirt I recreated is from our 1974 "Sunmmer Jam" event. No shirt was offered then ,so I took the original design I hand drew for the events program cover and redrew the whole thing into a shirt. By the way, that day we had some 'booked in" Pro Stocks in a 4 car match race to pump the day...Brooklyn Heavy...Fast Eddie Schartman...Richie Zul ...Bob Ingles ...have a whole topic at our forum on it with archived photos. Ok back to the shirt....This one was also debuted at our 4th annual Dover Drag Strip Nostalgia Drags in Aug & Flew off the Goodie booth table. Art style is appropriate for the era annd all produced 'old skool' way. Order It and all our goodies at our store page:
