While ’70s era Firebirds evoke images of tire smoking big block V8 models, Pontiac recognized that for every V8 model sold, five V6 models would leave dealerships, often to women. Women had become 30% of the Firebird market by 1977, and many potential buyers, regardless of gender, appreciated the more low-key models. To that end, Pontiac added color coordinated flair and decals to appeal to the fairer sex (and less macho men) in 1977 with the “Color Birds” series. These designer Firebird Esprits with a themed color and options had their own versions of delicate looking bird graphics with plenty of curves and flowing scripts. The first was the 1977 Sky Bird, a model with a light blue exterior and interior that marked a juncture where automakers got serious about marketing to women. Other Color Birds would follow with the 1978-79 Red Bird, followed by the 1980-81 Yellow Bird.
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.
Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
All sizes are provided in inches!
