Default Get Milk and Apex Everything!

We recently lost a good Miata friend in the Dallas area. Rick Orwig was a huge blipshift t-shirt fan. I recently contacted blipshift to see if we could get them to make another run of his favorite shirt. Not only did they agree to it but they are donating $5 for each shirt sold to assist Rick's family with the huge medical bills he had acquired prior to his sudden passing.

T-Shirt ordering has begun! Click the link to place your order. Item will ship directly to you. Sale ends on 6/12/15 @ 10pm EST. Blipshift will tally up the total shirts and make a $5 per shirt donation to Rick's family. Please share this with everyone you know. It's a great shirt and and even greater cause!

Just as a small side note, this is running exactly like a normal sale shirt would be running for blipshift, meaning process wise they will be printing and shipping all the shirts roughly ~1.5-2 weeks after the sale end date, which is 6/12. That means shirts will not be received until roughly 3 weeks from now.

If you wish to just make a small donation, you can do so here.

Oh no, that was Trickyrix?!

I had talked to him about his car a lot when I was just starting out miata-ing. He was really cool and helpful.

Has everyone ordered their shirts? Pass this info on to all your car buddies! We need to sell more blipshift shirts for the cause. Buy some for Christmas presents, shop rags, doggie shirts, donations to the thrift stores, give-aways at your next kegger, sleep shirts for your girl seat cover for your ratty *** Miata seats. The possibilities are endless!

Just got this response from the awesome guys at blipshift.

"We've actually decided to go ahead and leave the tee up and available for order all weekend so ya'll can get those last orders in. The countdown timer will say 0:00:00, but it will be order-able. On Monday we'll pull the tally and get the order into our print team! We'll let you know the final number as well and contribute $5/shirt to Rick's foundation."

From the guys at BS, "An incredible 95 "Milk Run for Rick Orwig" shirts were ordered! Fantastic! We've slotted this run of tees to be printed up in our schedule ASAP! We would like to make our $475 donation to Rick's family,"

Thanks everyone who contributed and wear your shirt proudly knowing the meaning behind it. In memory of a fellow Miata enthusiast.
