Clothes and Things
« on: February 02, 2009, 05:47:44 AM »
I have LOTS! :-o
First, hats... some of you have already seen a few of these. Hats are my favorites, they seem to be easy to come by and lots are free!
From left to right, top to bottom, just like reading:
UTA Trax, UTA Trax, UTA Mt. Ogden, Pride, TSMT, Ross Well Service, Halliburton, Turner Lumber, McFarland Ford, Freightliner, Peterbilt, Ford, Cat, Utility, Mack, Sharp, Yellow, Sousa, Francis, Watkins, Rupp's, Bingham Livestock, Staker/Parson, Little America, Jim Palmer, Landstar, ATHS 2008, Fife, Milne, and C.H. Dredge.

Other stuff:
Two Ford pins and a Peterbilt 359, Blackwill and Sons Trucking, Mack, John Deere, Trucker, Peterbilt, International pocket watch, five UTA pins, Peterbilt pocket watch, Peterbilt 359, and Autocar. I also have a Tramcor jacket and I used to have a Peterbilt oval pin, but lost it.

Shirts... I have some others that are too small to wear and one that was hand-drawn by a friend and washes off, so I don't wear it... these I mentioned are not shown.

That's quite a collection, Ryan! I'm really envious of some of those hats!  :wink:

I don't have too many American trucking related items, unfortunately... I have these:
Pins: KW, Peterbilt, IH LoneStar, Wal-Mart truck pin (sitting on the sun visor of my bus, next to a US flag pin)
Hats: KW, Peterbilt, TSC, DiPietro Trucking (Kent, WA)
Shirts: Volvo VT880 (blue), KW W900L (white), Pete (big 379 on the back; black), Western (blue polo shirt), TSC (grey polo shirt and grey college sweater), as well as truck show shirts from most of the truck shows I have been to: Richard Crane Memorial Truck Show, St Ignace, MI, 2007; Mid-America '07 and '08; Truckin' for Kids '09 - as well as the pride of my collection, a very cool Central Valley Trucking t-shirt. CVT is out of Bakersfield, CA, given to me (and Steve) by the CVT guys at TFK this past year.  :-)

Oh, and then I also have an In-N-Out Burger t-shirt with an In-N-Out Burger truck on the back.  :-D

Pretty impressive collection there, Ryan.  I have a Mack hat just like that one, but I'm more partial to a rounded visor.  One must wonder where you came about some of these items, (i.e., the Overnite pocket knife, Reliance sign, and the Milne hat).  E-bay I assume? :-D  I'd probably wear each of those hats in rotation. :-D

The Overnite knife was a gift, I'm assuming they found it online. :wink:
The Milne hat I found at Deseret Industries. DI is a department store that takes used items that are donated and sells everything real cheap... I actually get a lot of hats there for fifty cents. I'm not sure what the Salvation Army does, but I believe that's probably what you have in your area. :?
As far as the Reliance emblem was from my friend. He works for Staker/Parson and occassionally he'll find stuff that they're getting rid of... he found two spare emblems and picked the best condition one to give to me. Now I'm just waiting for someone at the Brigham Pit to wreck one of the Peterbilt dumpers, so he can get me a Pete emblem. :-P

Thanks guys.

If your not picky about them being used (just clean) you might want to look at some thrift stores for some second hand hats.  Or my closet.  I don't collect them and I seem to get hats left and right.  I have several Pete and Freightliner hats (although one is greasy as I wear it whilst under the truck) that I could pack in the truck and drop off the next time through (though I usually go up US93 through NV coming to and going from CA).

Most of my hats were used, so no, it doesn't bother me... I'm in a large shirt. Just let me know when you come through, I really appreciate it. :wink:

My newest hat! I bought an old Detroit patch on eBay and had a blank hat from a local surplus store. I also got two Diamond Reo patches! I was pretty sure the auction I bid on was for one patch, but they shipped me two. I planned on putting it on a hat when I got it, but when I found that I had two of 'em, I changed my mind. Since I've got two, I'll put them on the headrests of my seat covers for the Reo!

I don't know, but I'm sure it would come up with a search on eBay.

I found a Willis Shaw Express hat in a goodwill store in Boise yesterday, as well as a J.J. Keller hat. Set me back a dollar fifty-nine in total. Thought that was a pretty nice deal.  :roll: :-D
(I go into goodwill/thrift stores on my trips from time to time because I have found some pretty cool hats in some before.)
