Thanks for checking for me. I think I want a t-shirt with a picture tho, guess I will have to paint my Argosy on one! The hat is a little pricey........I know I can't get Jim to buy that!

Reminds me of a very popular T-Shirt, black and white photo on beige background. Pictured, a leathered cowboy, quite soused, clinging to his beloved horse. "Designated Driver"... you could take that to a whole new level!

I used my Argosy as a model. If I am going to paint a different one, I need another model.

Talking Excuses!

It looks almost like yours, is shorter, and has only one axle...

Hey Sandy,

I just found this thread. I can have the people who did the rally shirts do direct to garment printing of your design if you want. The quality is far superior to online sites like cafepress.

Your work is very nice!

Steve

I've been doing hand-painted tees for a few decades now, but I have never marketed them in quantity. Perhaps the time has come seeing the lack of anything Argosy out there. I might just check out the rally shirt people for cost and see how that flies. Thanks, I would appreciate contact info. Sandy

You already have their contact info. In the goodies bag from the Cape to Cairo rally I placed their business card. If you are missing it, then let me know and I'll put you in touch.

It ain't silver

In response to the original post, for better or worse, this is probably because to the masses, an Argosy is the red headed step child (if even that much) of an Airstream. Sure, it may be the same trailer as the iconic legend, but it's NOT silver! An aluminum trailer should be silver. Period.

You know it's the same. I now it's the same. But "they" don't know it's the same. When you think of the "Icon", you think of SILVER.

Don't worry, I pull an Avion. Don't think I don't get my share of "What model of Airstream is that?" I'm sure all you Argosy folk get that and more.

cheers,
