Pelican Parts 20th Anniversary T-Shirt Design - Need Your Help!




In honor of Pelican Parts celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year, we wanted to do something special to commemorate this important milestone; so we decided to come out with a 20th anniversary shirt and want input from you, our community, on which Mercedes model/year to feature on this shirt.

Please comment below with any info that may be relevant for us to look at and consider when it comes to designing the shirt. Thank you all!

I love the 124 wagon. It has such classic lines.

However the w123 has the bulk appeal and classic design.

However however... the 87 560SL is a sharp car...

Then of course the gull wing is such a penultimate Mercedes vehicle.

Pelican Parts 20th Anniversary T-Shirt Design - Need Your Help!

I would do a front view, fender-line up silhouette of a row of all kinds of Mercedes. Kind of like a skyline pic. With the logo across the bottom.

I agree with the W123 Sedan. I love pretty much all Mercedes, but the W123 is in a class of it's own, worldwide, for classic design and product exceptionalism.

Thank you everyone for your input. We don't have an exact ETA on the MB shirts, but they'll likely be made in early 2018. We'll update you all as soon as we have more info!

I had a T-shirt design for the 2009 tech seesion here in Texas and made 30 shirts for the event ,sunnyintexas had the location east of Dallas for all the MB diesel groupies to meet and tech out that weekend .I remember the design was of an old 50s photo with several young teenagers peering over a cars engine with the hood up.I had to do a redraw and placed a w123 in the place as the vehicle being at the center of attention. Rhunter may have been seen wearing one around the shop as he was one of the recipients.I believe the art I still have ,a tan shirt with a drk brwn 2 color print would be nice ,the letters in red ,a good oldstyle like the indian motorcycle brand ,antiqued is what is in.Over size the lettering and have the design cover some of the lettering like a backdrop.The back of the shirt all vintage side views of classic mbs ,the amount of MBs could be limitless but 40 would be about right.This is where a vote of kinds could make it part of the enquirery.
