How a T shirt can get you recognized ( not Cx related)

Recommended Posts

Decided to take a few of my favorite T shirts on holiday with me last week  one ,our new club T shirt and two

 my Fired up Garage TShirt and a couple of others..For those that don't know 

fired up Garage is a spin off from Discovery channels Gas monkey Garage for those still not in the know they are both programmes about Hot Rods and 70's American Muscle cars and occasionally motorcycles.

so how amazed was I when Richard Rawlings the star and owner walked over to me ( I didn't even see him coming) and pointed out me in my T shirt and came up for a photo moment whilst I was strolling up through Times Square in NY.

What made him come over was the TShirt as there is no official US merchandise but I got the shirt off E bay uk lol .he had his crew with him and they also took pictures of us. There is His Gas monkey merchandise in the USA and I have T shirts and jackets etc but it was his face to see a fired up T Shirt been worn by the public and not one of the cast.

Nice one Pete I like chip foose too and Dave kindig him and foose are from they same mold. Gas monkey was great in the early days with they cars but they are very upmarket now. Fired up are more down to earth and very funny too
