    I'd do them for sure if I could find a decent example made in the USA... Pockets shirts are had to find man.

  2. One pocket would be fine for me! Also I like the large designs on the back rather than the front! How many share that placement? The front could have just a small HAMB design over the breast. Yes I said breast!:oops: Anyway it is all cool stuff. :cool:

  4. I just ordered a couple of things, forgot to use my Alliance discount. Then again, maybe I'll cancel my order and grab some of the bootleg stuff Mr. Norwell will be selling out of the trunk of his '57 in Toronto this weekend :D Nice work on the calendars, of course.

    Good to see Dan Picasso getting credit for his awesome artwork, too bad he doesn't hang around here anymore. Sailor designed the Knowbody's shirt (or at least did the illustration), but no mention. He hasn't been on the HAMB in a very long time either, I see his name on FB sometimes and have one of his paintings hanging in my office.

    Just popped into the Sales Dept of the Jalopy Journal and made a small order to support your good work here and over on the Garage Journal. Anything you can do so I get the number 48 on my key ring would be appreciated.

    I hate to be ticky-tacky, but technically there is no such thing as "Weight" of engine oils. I'm not really sure where this came from to begin with, but I suspect it just came into use because of the "W" used in some viscosity grades, but the "W" stands for Winter, not Weight. And while this may seem ticky-tacky and insignificant, I think it's important to get this stuff right; to not perpetuate misunderstandings. My suggestion for the next batch of these stickers is to replace the word Weight with Viscosity Grade, or shorten to Vis Grade or even Grade if there isn't enough room. Grade would be better than Weight.

  7. It's common lexicon, viscosity grades are referred to as weights, nothing to do with the W in the name of some. I use straight "30 weight" in my flathead (when it's running). Come to think of it, straight 30 weight is getting damn hard to find.

    Yeah, and it's common lexicon to call every 30's Ford (or other brand) a roadster. It's wrong, there is no weight, and let's stop perpetuating incorrect terminology. When you use it, you betray your ignorance, just like the person that calls a coupe a roadster. OK enough, I won't respond to anymore and detract from the thread. Just wanted to make a point to help improve the product, but don't want to get into a pissing match.

    My format and copy was taken directly from an original. I didn’t play around with these... I literally had Valvoline’s corporate archives at my disposal when putting them together.

    Also, looking at some of their marketing material from the 1940’s and they regularly refer to viscosity as weight in them.

    I grew up with the term "weight" for oil. Right or wrong, it was used in every service station across the country. Slang, yes, maybe. Thanks for making these, I ordered a couple sets.

    HAMB merch should focus on Tradition, not Technicalities. Car guys have been calling it weight for a long time. That's good enough for me.

    I always did and still call oil viscosity by it's weight.
    I did get my oil stickers, Beanie and decals in the mail and nifty stuff.
    Wore the beanie to work this morning and it is warm.

    The swag bag is one of award season's most time-honored tradition. Since the dawn of man, or at least since the dawn of TV, actors and actresses have been getting their paws on loads of free crap to either supplement their trophy winnings or pad their pockets after a disappointing loss.

  22. For those who are not familiar, (specifically a certain person from So Cal) 40W is not a winter oil.
    Thank You Ryan, for getting it right!

    Mine arrived today. Thank you Ryan. I got 35 and not 48 on my tag and in the finish I am not worried about that. The calendar is great.

  27. Not to derail this further but I love these kind of comments. The "specific person from So Cal" you are calling out is a lubricant engineer I am guessing he knows what he is talking about?:rolleyes:

    Nice to see the HAMB calendar tradition continue with Norwell carrying the torch. He's the dreamiest. :) I'm off to order one.
