Certainly cost is an issue, I can understand that. But now with the 
prevalent use of computers for a lot of this stuff, that cost can be 
Imagine...............A convention T-shirt with a set background and design, 
but if you pre-order, your choice of an early or late, coupe or convertible, 
FC or wagon, or even an ultra. Can this be done? Would it even be

2 or 3, each different?
So maybe the cost would be a little higher. Would people pay an extra 2 
bucks for a T-shirt with that choice? Has anyone considered looking into
