Colleen Kelly Designs Vintage T-Skirt Collection

Introducing the NEW Vintage T-Skirts by swimwear designer Colleen Kelly! Each one of these custom Vintage T-Skirts is a “work of art” made from vintage t-shirts, belts, and other elements that have been painstakingly sought out, selected, assembled, and combined from collector sources around the world. This makes them difficult or impossible to reproduce, so once sold, they're gone! We add new ones as they become available, so check back with us.

Colleen Kelly Designs Swimwear Image: NASCAR - Dale Earnhardt Quick View

NASCAR - Dale Earnhardt "Rock On"


Swimwear Style #7013

 

Regarded as one of the most significant drivers in NASCAR history, Dale Earnhardt Sr. began his career in 1975 in the World 600 as part of the Winston Cup. He won numerous cup races and championships, earning him several nicknames like the Intimidator and the Count of Monte Carlo. His instant death after a collision in the final lap of the Daytona 500, in February 2001, has been widely lamented in the industry, and this tee with "Rock on" pays tribute to him. It's "new old stock," meaning it's old, but was never worn, so the graphic is crisp, but the thick paint gently crackling, gives it that true vintage feel. It comes with "NASCAR" stamped belt and NASCAR "Special Edition" #3 commemorative buckle. *Note: the belt also has the nickname "Bullfrog" hand-stamped on the back.
SIZE: LARGE
