Description


Earl “Lucky” Teter was an American stunt driver, showman, and entrepreneur. He pioneered and popularized the touring stunt driving show, performing across the country until his death in a car jumping stunt. Born in Noblesville, Indiana, Teter was a gas station attendant who, by 1932, was performing automobile and motorcycle stunts. “Lucky Teter and His Hell Drivers” performed across the United States and Canada beginning in 1936, and had great success for six years. His show was so popular that, in some years, he performed at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto in the afternoons, then flew to Syracuse, New York, to appear in the New York State Fair at night, which required two sets of equipment. He is credited with creating now-staple stunts as jumping a car from ramp to ramp and rolling a car, and was also the first to team up with an automobile company, in his case Plymouth, promoting its products in exchange for backing. On July 5, 1942, he was the last performer at an Army Relief benefit at the Indiana State Fair Grounds, where he planned to break his own world distance record by jumping 150 feet over a transport truck. He drove a 1938 Plymouth at 65 miles per hour and jumped off the first ramp, but came down several feet short and crashed into the supports of the landing ramp and later died in the ambulance taking him to the hospital.

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 super soft Gildan 18500 hoodies 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. With a large front pouch pocket and drawstrings in a matching color, this hoodie is soft, stylish, and a perfect mid-weight for laying in cooler weather or keeping the chill off during summer nights at the beach.

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current sweatshirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the hoodie laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the sweatshirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam.

While our sweatshirts are made using premium, preshrunk cotton/poly blends, there can be some slight shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence or just want to be able to layer over various shirts, we always suggest going up a size as hoodies are meant to be a little on the big side 😎
