Tom Beatty Automotive Engineering Vintage T-Shirt
Tom Beatty was a dry lakes racer who later became a speed shop owner. There were a number of speed manufacturers during the 1950s producing racing cams, heads, etc. and Tom worked for a number of them and truly honed his craft. Tom Beatty Automotive Engineering made all kinds of engines for all kinds of go-fast applications, so whether you were breaking records at Bonneville, tearing up the quarter mile in Fremont, or forcing buddy to hang on for dear life at Lake Elsinore, Tom was your guy. From manifolds to superchargers, Tom made it to his exacting specifications which resulted in engines that ran stronger and pulled harder than anything the big name builders were making. Today genuine Tom Beatty Automotive Engineering parts are worth more than gold, but are well worth it if you know your stuff, so whether you remember Tom for his record setting lake runs, amazing cars, or his shop's custom engine parts, this one's for you!
Please refer to the size card below to help find the right size for you. Some people will say B+C shirts run a little small while others will say that they are 'true to size' so clearly, sizing is subjective at best as just like opinions, everyone's body is different. If you're on the fence about sizing, we always suggest going up a size as even high-quality pre-shrunk tees like these average about 1% shrinkage, all dependent on how you wash and dry them, of course.
