Well, as great as www.fordshop.com.au
is, and all the current Ford merchandising goes, I am still disappointed at the near total lack of Tickford specific merchandising!
On the websites of Ford, Fordshop, FTE, and Tickford, the only merchandise I found that fitted this criteria was the following :
* Polo shirt (navy or black) with vertical stripe and T-Series logo
* T-Series cap (navy or black) - I got one of these at the Tickford day
* T-Series keyring
* T-Series business card holder
* T-Series suit bag
* 1:43 scale S1 TE50
Apart from these, the only other merchandise I can recall being Tickford specific is the XR8 cap.
At the Tickford weekend, I was really hoping to grab a t-shirt or two with small and large Tickford logos, perhaps a jacket, and another cap. Anything really that has those classy white wings and red T!! And there was my problem - there was absolutely sweet F.A. All I could find was the T-Series cap (which I purchased).
If it wasn't for the superb "Own The Road" shirt that we got with the dinner on the Saturday night, I would have been supremely disappointed with my purchases that weekend.
I am beginning to wonder - is there any particular reason that Tickford is not being marketed and promoted through merchandising? Maybe HJ can step in here and reassure us all!
What do you all think? Is the current range of Ford / Ford Racing / FTR adequate, or do you guys want Tickford-only merchandise? If so, what kinds of things would you like to see?
Let's make this a constructive thread that may be of use to Ford and Tickford.
