We have asked and T Mac has delivered. The online store is open for orders for T-shirts and stickers. There's loads of colours, so get several to give some variance in your wardrobe. :D

As we need to a little extra for Canadian shipping, please note that you must press the button at the bottom of the screen for Canadian shipping for your order. It's $5.00 for the entire order - order extra tees and stickers now instead of getting them later and paying additional shipping charges.

It's up to us to make this successful. I would love to see all of you sporting the tees at the next meet.

Shop til you drop! :D

It's probably because I'm a total dumbass or something :oops: but I signed up with Paypal to order a shirt and sticker. It's not really clear though if my order has gone through or not. Their site is a little confusing. I know I need to wait for a member number. Will that then get me back to my original order page. I'd appreciate it if anyone has had experience with them or is in the same boat. I've either ordered nothing or 50 shirts and 100 stickers :roll:

I think you need to be fully registered with Pay Pal before your order goes through. Even then you'll receive a confirmation email about your order. If you do not see an email in 1 day, I'd investigate your registration further.

Just so people have an idea of the cost in Cdn $$, I ordered 2 large T's, 2 club decals and the extra shipping.
Total US $45
Converted through Pay Pal Total Cdn $63.15

:::sniff!::: So much for my days of being an international financier.

And I was hoping to be so useful and wonderful for you all that you'd invite me to Canada or something. :wink:

But, Iskie is right: buy now, buy in quantity, support T Mac, and wear your EOC apparel with pride!

Kim, you can come to Canada any time you want :wink:
Thank you for the offer, it was very genuine of you.

Here is an ad I saw in a Canadian cycling mag. Thought it would inspire people to get out and enjoy their E.


That's me with my new club T-shirt :lol:

That ad is great...a nice move by Honda. Now if they can just get their dealers to get excited about it. (Sorry...still dumbfounded by the dealer's lack of drive and enthusiasm for the E.)

We should try to find out if posters of this ad will be available. You know someone will end up on Ebay with one. ;)

Worthwhile asking Honda itself....

I totally agree with you Tom about the lack of energy being directed to the E by dealers. I was talking to a salesman for one of the local dealers last week - he thinks part of the problem may be that Honda's research and demographic studies on future buyers has largely turned out to be a bust. The average age of buyers is pushing 20 years past their target audience. He said the salesmen aren't really sure how to market the car to people who come in since many find the 'xtreme sports' and activity angle a little past them. It does make sense - how else to explain reluctance to market such an ultra cool road gem.

Lack of Dealer enthusiasm...

I talked to the dealer recently where I bought mine...The GM is all fired up and thinks its a nothing short of fabulous vehicle...his problem though is...he has a waiting list and can't get inventory...so why try to sell something he can't get...makes sense. Talked to another dealer where I get my service done...His story...ditto ditto....can't make a profit from no sale... makes sense a second time.

I can see how salespeople and dealers might be confused about how to sell the Element.

If Honda really only focused on the car as the X-Treme Sportz D00d car, then that leaves the salesperson with nothing to talk about to 95% of the people who walk in, and gee, how many times can you say "Dude, it's a cool car!" to anyone anyway?

If salespeople and dealers let ordinary buyers and drivers, like many of us here, speak for the car, and how we like driving it, using it, filling it with dogs and kids, plants and groceries, camping gear and whatnot, then that might be the perfect sales pitch.

If I were a salesperson, I'd hand the prospective buyer a card that said "ElementOwnersClub.com" on it saying "Look at how real people enjoy the Element and talk to them."

Hey Luscious, I agree give them the card...the truth is here(not with Kenzie or a bunch of salesman...)I wonder how many of the sales types have driven it farther than across the parking lot(mine hadn't even gone that far in it)and I knew more than he did. We just saw it on the www, thought it looked freaky enough for us...reserched it and plunked down the $$; best move we've made in years...36700 kms in 4months and 3 days.

I agree. The salespeople are dimly aware of what the "E" means in terms of its demographics. It would useful for them to use us to sell the vehicle, instead of annoying us. I would be happy to act as a reference for the "E" had my dealer treated me well. In Sales, we often use reference accounts, why don't car salesmen? It's been a closer for us many a time.

I just got my stickers and they look great. can't wait for the t shirts. Thanks Tmac and I can't believe you hand addressed all those envelopes.
I have to wait to put them on until some others I have ordered arrive. I plan on a lot of stickers so I want to lay them out right.

Thanx agian, great site.

Make sure you place the EOC sticker in the official position. :lol:

Love to see pictures of when all of the stickers have been applied.
