Description


If you were a trucker who running Interstate 35 through Minnesota between 1968 and 1993, odds are that you stopped at Country Driver’s Truck Stop in Burnsville at least once. Located near I-35 and Highway 13 Country Driver’s was a true mom and pop truck stop that hung on as long as they could until succumbing to completion from the big chains and their mega travel centers 🙁
 
The hidden basement room is a cluttered inner sanctum concealing an unlikely assortment of technology installed in 1983. ENCOM servers linked to a sophisticated touch screen desktop form the main workstation. These servers house Flynn’s crowning achievement, the Tron system, which he worked on for many years in complete secrecy. They also connect to the laser that enabled Flynn to transport himself inside the Tron system. When entering the Tron system from Flynn’s, the receiving end is a digital reconstruction of Flynn’s Arcade in Tron City.
 
The arcade was originally located on Watseka St., which was later renamed Mead St. The arcade’s neighborhood appeared to have been a bustling nighttime amusement and entertainment district at the time, and Flynn’s was a popular hang-out for teens and had many video games, including Flynn’s own games, Space Paranoids, Matrix Blaster, Vice Squad, Light Cycles, and later TRON. The area has become somewhat run down in the years following Flynn’s stay there.

Details


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
