Jerry Jardine started Jardine Header Co. humbly in 1958 from his parent’s back yard in Pasadena, California. He was working at Pearly’s Muffler Shop prior to this and building some custom headers. Word traveled and a demand for more and as more header work followed, he set up shop not far from home in Garden Grove. Jerry studied the European sports car headers of the day and adapted the engineering to American cars with great success. The ’58 348 Impala that he owned was his original testbed and the first part number. Up until this time headers were custom-built on your car, so Jardine was the first (or at least one of) to produce a true bolt-on header in a box. His TRI-Y design headers were best suited for heavier street driven cars where a broader torque curve is wanted which made them quite popular among hot rod and street racing enthusiasts. This design is based on one of the earliest handpainted logos taken from the door of the shop truck.
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!
