T-shirt, “Impact Your World”

Description
In 1987, General Motors, 16 GM subsidiaries, and AeroVironment, Inc. designed the GM Sunraycer solar electric car to compete in the first World Solar Challenge in Australia. Using lessons learned from the project -- how driver activity, power consumption, battery life, and range interact -- GM and AeroVironment developed the emission-free Impact battery electric car in the 1990s. The double meaning of the slogan on this T-shirt represents pride and enthusiasm for the environmentally friendly car within General Motors’ electric vehicle staff. The T-shirt was donated by Jill Banaszynski, a marketing manager for the Impact program.
