file under: ahead of their time

original super rare The Cars "On the Road" tour shirt
year: 1982
tag: action sportswear
material: 100% cotton
condition: excellent
value: $300
note: one of the more "difficult to find" tees in my collection. there are a very few of this particular design that ever come up for sale and it's usually the same story...too small. this one is an XL in great condition which makes it all the more rare. the early Cars catalog stands up today as some of the best music to come out of the early 80's.
