Rover Head Gasket Car Cliché T Shirt


Rover Head Gasket T Shirt

As a lover of old cars, I’m in quite a few related FaceBook groups and, much as I enjoy these, there’s plenty of tired old clichés to be found in the comments section, repeated over and over. One of the most common has to be the old ‘head gasket’ jokes on anything featured that is even remotely Rover/MG. This is despite the fact that it only affects some 4 cylinder ‘K’ Series engines (not diesels, V6s etc), and is relatively cheap to fix. Blown head gaskets are also a common issue for quite a few other brands too, but somehow they never seem to be targeted. A more informed write-up on the revolutionary K series engine can be found here.

As a Rover/MG owner myself, rather than let it frustrate me, I thought I would channel my energy into something more productive, so I came up with these t-shirts. They come in a choice of 6 colours with some available all the way upto 5XL and are a great way to deflect the jokes before they even start.

They may well become part of an occasional ‘car cliché’ series, along with other favourites such as; any Jaguar – ‘it’s just a Mondeo’, any Italian exotic – ‘It’s an MR2 kit’, Reliant Scimitar – ‘Princess Anne had one’ etc, etc…
