Car Free/Car Lite Gear

For the new year I'd like to mac my clothes and bike out a bit with some carfree/car light gear. I've checked out 1lesscar, does anybody know of any other sources for this kind of stuff??

the carfree message on it...like I said, 1lesscar has some good things on it but they are all the same color and I'd like to diversify my outfits.

I think cooker's sig would make a great carfree design. Maybe cabana4life will make one for sale? Of course he'd have to give cooker a cut.

I'd rather go with a simple slogan that's easily read. I'd prefer your sig to his...

I'd have to fight the urge to be confrontational... like "your SUV sucks"... etc.

Thanks...I have a vague recollection of possibly seeing some similar design in the past, so like George Harrison I probably "unconsciously plagiarized" it from someone. But then, that's true of so many creations.

If we want to get the car dependent people to accept us maybe instead of "one less car", which reads anti-car, "one more parking space" which describes a benefit we give to car dependent people.
