Glad everyone got their shirts. A couple guys didn't mark down sizes and I had to guess - hope I didn't offend anyone, lol!

This will be the last year we have T-Shirts made through this company. They really gave us a hard time last year and promised to make it up this year. Doug did not want to give them a second chance but I did it anyways and you all see what happened. I did get the image in a bit late this year to them but there's really no reason it should have taken a month. I was in there about every other day trying to get the graphics right. Previous years, I could just send over a PDF file with the image and it was good to go - this year, I sent over a PDF... then JPEG, etc etc etc and then BACK to a PDF again. Then he was supposed to print a "test shirt" for me and he didn't and they ruined an entire batch. They were to print a "test shirt" again and still printed the entire batch a second time. This time it was "ok" and I had nesters ready to kill me so I just went with it. Over a month later, I was tired of fighting them on it.

Overall, I like the shirts. The entire image was supposed to much larger and I am not happy with the black out wheels and bad shading. The original image was perfect but a million excuses later, again I just wanted the shirts done. In the end, I wound up only paying "cost" for them for the hassle but that did not fix my frustration. We will use a different vendor next year for sure.

If anyone wants to buy a shirt, just shoot me a PM. All proceeds go to the Nest.

Mavericke , I do have some of the AMC factory clip art for the early 80's with a good number of Eagles in it. I usually works better then a drawing, as it's made for advertising art work usually in black and white for newspapers. LRDaum

For the wagon and this year's Sx4 we used the factory line art. Will most likely use it again for 2012... just going with a new company and getting exactly what I want this time.

OK, I checked with the Jock Jocowicz , president of NAMDRA, long distance is not suppose to get a trophy, but is suppose to a check for $50. I've made Jock aware that Rick Ingram came from Hesperia, California to Cordova and registered for the meet with his Eagle SW , so assuming no one else came from a longer distance driving an AMC to the meet , and that's about 4500 miles or so round trip. I'll remind Jock in about a week or so, we just starting to look at this stuff and check every thing out. Jim , I hope we have your full address. LRDaum
I got a letter the other day from NAMDRA. This was inside:

Thanks!

They keep sending me stuff!!! (don't get me wrong, I like it!).
I got this month's newsletter from NAMDRA and opened it up to the centerfold and found this:


Makes me want to make the trip out again this year!

Can we please post the TShirt pictures here so they can be seen? The pics on the store are very tiny and blurry, and they don't show the 2011 SX4 at all. I see the super tiny SX4 picture on Mav's profile, but I can barely tell what it looks like from that. Does anyone have the TShirt pictures, 2009 2010 and 2011, in a large Jpeg format that can be actually seen in detail? I barely have a clue what they look like.

Thanks! I hope we can get all three designs saved to the Eaglepedia. I think I like the 2009 one the best and hope that picture stays available. They do look pretty awesome and they are Eagle Nest specific. This forum has reason to be proud; its exceptional among car enthusiast forums.
