East African Safari - Mercury Comet T-shirt


In 1964, Tom Medley was commissioned by Mercury to created an logo illustrations for Mercury Comet's ambitious attempt to tackle the grueling East African Safari Rally. At the time, the event was considered the ultimate test of automobile durability and performance.

Sadly, the American entry proved too heavy compared to the competition (a Peugeot 404 dominated) and is repeatedly sank in the mud. But, Medley's cartoon -- to borrow a phrase from Kurt Vonnegut -- is unstuck in time. It lives on! And it makes a very cool, unique t-shirt design.

Available in White or Black;; sizes S-M-L-XL-XXL

Drive, he said!!
