“The morning sun rises over a serene, undulating river of tarmac, glimmering like the ripples of an early tide. Orange light hugs the shadows edge, gliding down the observation towers and across the paddock. Birdsongs are swallowed by the howl of tuned exhausts as the engines breathe the morning mist of the infield; inhaling fuel and igniting the day. Cacophony rises then falls like the brass and strings of an abating symphony in the passion of the pursuit.
This is for the drivers.”
This is what it say’s when you read ziptie clothing’s page.
My first memory of this company that stands out was when Nick and Adam (creators of the shirts), were them pulling my engine out of my AE86 as I came home unassuming. I walk in the garage, “What you guys doin there?” I say as they are hoisting the engine out of the engine bay, while oil pours out from my oil cooler onto the floor. “I looked online and couldn’t find a picture with the right angle of a 4AGE motor, so we decided to pull yours.” Nick says. Then as they position it. Getting the lighting right and making a back drop. My engine went from being a thing that only I and anyone looking under my hood enjoyed to Something I saw a girl I didn’t know wearing my engine on her shirt. Definitely a cool moment.
My motor apparently fit the bill for their zip tied inspired clothing company as it was famous for the neon pink zipties holding the vacuum lines on.
Here are some of the other shots, and the final t-shirt product.
They have many more shirts that are much cooler than my pink 4AGE on their website. You can check them out @ www.ziptieclothing.com.
I’m personally digging the Rotary heart and the spark plug T’s! The shirts are very good quality, ZipTie Clothing is designed around those that share our zeal for motorsport. Each piece they produce is an active search for the link between driver and machine; links that cannot be bound by tire walls, K rails or catch fences and motivate the very soul of every enthusiast.
