US METAL CONTAINER COMPANY USMC METAL CAS CAN

Got Gas?    Well now you have someplace to put it...

Today it's an old style all metal gas can.
"Blitz" gas cans are made by US Metal Container Company... USMC
They've been making these things since WWII 
This one was made in 1983.  It's a 2 1/2 gallon.
This one smells more like Kerosene than it does gas so I'm not sure I"ll use it quite yet.
I like these metal ones more than the plastic ones as they just seem tougher.
The bottom.
If you need to store gas, why not store it in your vintage can... it's Vintage Gear for Guys...

VINTAGE EDDIE BAUER CHAMOIS WORK SHIRT

Today it's a cool shirt I picked up the other day.
It's a vintage chamois work shirt.
Made by Eddie Bauer.   Probably from the early 70's.
Not many shirts come with printed warnings...
Just a great over all, warm cotton shirt to be worn over another shirt.
I grew up wearing these on colder days and finding one again brought a smile to my face.
It's tough to find older shirts that fit, are 100% cotton and still were made in the USA....
I'm glad I found this one as I gave it a new home and it won't just sit on the hanger anymore...  It's Vintage Gear for Guys!
