I know that we usually put ebay finds in that section, but this is more entertainment for Panzer guys.

http://www.ebay.com/...:SS:MOTORS:1123

Looks like a misprint gone off the tracks!

So.. Somebody does a production run of t-shirts that says "Panzer T175" when it should be "Panzer T75". And to add insult to injury, a T175 doesn't even exist.

I have to wonder if he knows this already if I'd ask him...

:blink: I'd wanna think he hasn't done the run yet and probably waits on orders before going to press out batches. He'd probably be happy to be told about his typo and comp you a shirt or two for giving the heads up. Should be worth a discount on order at least, IMO. (Ad does carry the new item thingy...)Or add 'Cookiemonster's' to the back..? :rolleyes:

That's what I thought, too. Though he still wants $14 plus shipping. I only see this stuff because I have an EBay saved search for "Panzer Tractor". At this point, I don't know why I keep the search going other than to see what kind of neat stuff is out there. Though it's a tough search because even with the word Tractor in it, you can still get a bunch of search results about WWII stuff for the Panzer Tank.

Got a response from the seller, they stated it was a misprint in the ad. The T-shirts read the correct 'T75'.

But why wouldn't they correct the ad?

And they did not publish my question........me thinks the t-shirt is printed wrong, and they're trying to get rid of the batch.

Misprinted money is very valuable. Maybe the seller has a plan ~~~~~~~~~

Yes, I call my current tractor a model Panzer T70H1116.

That's t70 for the panzer sheet metal, H for a honda, 1116 for the 1107 chassis with a 16hp version of engine instead of the stock 7hp. But then what the heck do I say about the power king transmission in it... Put PK at the end??? Panzer T70H1116PK?

I wonder if this guy would make me a t-shirt with such.
