The West Coast has a long history of car culture: They've been fixing up classic cars since the highways were paved and carved through the Rockies. The bustling factories of post-war Detroit were a long drive away from California so people had to learn to appreciate the models that made the trip. Classic car restoration is a way of breathing new life into a vehicle with crisp paint jobs, chrome fenders and, of course, hydraulics. A Chevy Impala riding low and slow is an iconic and common sight in a San Diego suburb. But anyone who's bottomed out a brand new fender knows low-riding ain't easy. Sometimes you gotta pony up and call in a specialist to get where you need to be. So get your ride ready because this Peterbilt is taking your low-rider for a long haul.
Hammerlane's West Coast Low-rider shirt features Erick & Mandy Witham's Peterbilt "The Devil's Darlin" riding high above the Golden State. The bright red classic cars it's bringing along pays tribute to a tough bunch of drivers: car haulers. The truck is full to the top with crimson red beauties complete with aftermarket rims, classic headlights, and convertible tops. Whether you ride on the East Coast or on the West Coast, you can appreciate the design's style. Most cars don't just appear at the dealership, they ride six deep behind a diesel engine. If you love your car hauler or your classic car, make sure to tell us about it, or show it off on social media and as always, stay in the Hammer Lane!
In the heartland of America, people like to do things a little bit differently. Work doesn't start at nine and end at five. It starts when it needs to and ends when the job is done, even if it means walking into a headwind while swatting the tumbleweed out of the way. Mother Nature doesn't [...]
Before we had the digital alarm clock, there stood the rooster. Chickens used to set the tone for the morning by getting everyone to the breakfast table right as the sun cracked the horizon, and to top it all off, they’d always have some delicious eggs ready for a proper country omelet. Even though the [...]
A nickname can say a lot about something or someone. You can earn one yourself from a legendary night out with friends, or secretly use one for the motorcycle you’ve been working on rebuilding for years (It’s Carol, we won’t tell anyone though.) With Kenworth trucks, they’ve earned their nickname through years of being large [...]
Everyone who's been out on the asphalt knows the familiar smell of diesel but those in the Hammer Lane know something else: How addictive it can be. True addicts remember the first time they smelled an engine blasting coal with its hundreds of horsepower roaring, shaking their whole body. An engine burning hot and clean is a beautiful thing [...]
Trucking isn't just a series of sprints, it's a marathon. Anybody who's been working the roadways will tell you: It takes a special set of skills to be successful. One of those skills is the ability to launch yourself into the driver's seat and get lost in the whir of the tires and smell of diesel fumes. It's time [...]
Sometimes you just can't shake a nick-name. Freightliner trucks have always been reliable and rugged, trusted companions you can count on, but they've never had (or wanted) the reputation for being a luxury vehicle. The FreightShaker design represents a truck that gets the job done even if it takes a little bit of rock-and-roll. The [...]
Trucking can throw a lot of curve-balls at you: Sometimes it's a swirling snowstorm and sometimes it's a thrown piston. What's important though, no matter the hardship, is the age old mantra "Keep On Trucking." No matter where you herald from, truckers know you gotta keep moving. There isn't a better representation of perpetual motion than a vintage Mack Truck. [...]
It's been a whirlwind first-year for Hammer Lane Apparel. We've gone from a small group of people with a handful of designs to a movement fueled by the best community we could have asked for. We've grown to have customers from all walks of life: truckers, mechanics, foremen, and the list goes on. Each and [...]
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, especially when those parts are powering a Peterbilt Truck. Some people brag about how much horsepower they have, some brag about their leather interior- but when you've got a Peterbilt all you have to say is that you run on Peter Power. There aren't [...]
