Another season, another t-shirt range, another leggy model from Import Bible.[Not a valid template]
Fresh from its recent competition run on crankandpiston.com, Import Bible – and company founder David Nguyen – are back with Series 8, just in time for summer. And while the addition of newgirl Erica Nagashima may be the most eye-catching (don’t judge me…), Import Bible has undergone a few subtle changes.
Whereas before – and we’re harking way back to 2012 when we first brought you news on the Import Bible team – the t-shirts paid homage to specific cars and automotive legends, now the focus is more about driving and the petrolhead community at large.
Take the Grease Monkey, for instance, a cheeky black option that pays tribute to the hours lost thinkering in the garage. Or, as guest contributor Barry Hope explained, the garden shed.
Then there’s the traditional nod to the tuning scene, so we can only assume that UAE petrolheads will be forking over their hard-earned reddies for Keep It 100. And paying homage to the golden rule of motor shows, one we generally ignored at last year’s Dubai Motor Show: ‘Don’t Touch’.
Of course, that’s not to say that David and the Import Bible team have forgotten their classics. Alongside The Heartbreaker (Mazda RX-7) and The Big Boss (Mercedes-Benz 190E, DTM’s ‘hammer’), there’s also a tribute to the GT86’s predecessor, the Toyota Supra. Of course, if you want something a little more…outlandish, you could go for an R34 Skyline. In turquoise…
