There were so many great, iconic vehicles from the 80's that there was no way for me to include them all, so this is by no means a complete showcase, but hopefully still sums up the total awesomeness of the era. And it's eventual downfall. And then how it is remixed, recycled and presented to us again as something new.

oh man I love it. I'd buy it for sure! $5 Of course I'm a product of the 80s hehe

No Knight Rider or GI Joe/Cobramobile? Still, your skillz continue to improve and improve, and nothing less than a 5$ would do for this brilliantly executed nostaligafest. The perspective looks a tad bit off between the Batmobile and the BTTF Delorean, but maybe its me.

Sadly, I do recognize all of them, old fart that I am $5

I think i'd prefer it if Prime was in his untransformed state

But 5£ - thats a good 2.3 extra on a 5$

Nice job, definitely needs KITT though. $5

FINALLY! An Old Skool sub I actually adore! There have been so many Rubik's Cubes, break dancers, and casette tapes that it's made me hate this competition! This is absolutely clever in every way. I think it's a great play on the theme and well drawn, too. So good! This has to win! If any of those other terrible designs win, I will boycott Threadless!

Like, totally $5!

i still think the cleverest thing in this is the Tron cycle de-ressing. it makes a good design a great one. nice work Ian!

Lupencia

this should just be printed now 5$

Jakaricat1

LOVE IT, but i dont really feel that batmobile is very 80's even though Tim Burton snuck it in in 89. I'd like this better if that was KITT from Knight Rider. It's totally 80's and just as iconic.

Ste7en

so awesome

Thanks for all the incredible comments so far!

KITT was featured in the original version of this design, but I ended up pulling it for the General Lee to bring some color into the left side of the composition.

From all of your comments, I can see that removing KITT was a sore mistake, and should this be picked up for printing, I will definitely replace the Batmobile with some Knight Rider awesomeness.

iamtherealbender

Aww man even though knight rider would be amazing i love the batmobile!!!! I would still end up buying it without the batmobile but thats one of the main reasons i love it!!!

FRICKINAWESOME

Is that the Magnum PI car in the back of the sub? I thought it was the corvette from the M.A.S.K. 80's cartoon! Damn i loved those toys...

Pico

$5 for the blues mobile.

Ellsswhere
Ellsswhere profile pic Alumni

the batmobile is one of the strong points... it is more identifiable with the general masses. KITT would be nice but I would consider a different car to erase... or you could try and force him in there somewhere. 5$

abeadle
abeadle profile pic Alumni

printit!!!!!! $5

blckmg

I would agree with KITT over the batmobile. 5$ either way, though. :)

liich
liich profile pic Alumni

stick KITT behind the ghostbusters vehicle and you'll be even better. still, lovin' it all the way. i've hated almost all of the submissions for this competition until now. definately $5!

Where the hell is KITT?

grayehound
grayehound profile pic Alumni

the turnip is the spacecraft from ET

looks like taking out KITT wasn't such a hot idea afterall. then again, everyone would've been asking where the General Lee was...

descartes

This is one of the greatest designs I've ever seen. Nostalgic AND artistic, a rarity... It would be a sin for threadless not to print this. 5$ and if there was a 10$ it would be there.

For anyone confused, I think I know all of the refernces (from left to right, generally):
the A-Team Van (the A-Team)
General Lee (Dukes of Hazzard)
ET's spaceship (ET)
the Dolorien time machine (Back 2 the Future)
the light-cycle race bike (Tron)
Airwolf (Airwolf)
Optimus Prime (Transformers)
The Batmobile (Batman with Adam West & Burt Ward)
The Bluesmobile - '74 Dodge Monaco with Magnum 440 squad car package (The Blues Brothers)
Ecto-1 (Ghostbusters)
Ferrari 308 GTS (Magnum P.I.)

I didn't get to vote on this, but I just wanna say - I'll buy this when they print it!

descartes

how could they not print this!?!?

nitro5

print this one!!!!!!!

kennybanzai

Are there any copywriting issues I wonder? I think this would sell out quick! If threadless never prints it you could definately sell to some company for a good price out there...threadless should print this!

For the next 5 1/2 hours only, with the Batmobile replaced with KITT for those who wanted it.

This link will no longer make sense after said time...
