One of my favorite scenes from Tommy Boy. Has anyone ever recreated the Callahan Brake Pads box?

I just checked out those fonts; I don't think those are exact matches - they are rounded off where on the prop box the letters have the letters' edges at a distinct angle. (I hope this makes sense, I'm not a professional letterer, so I don't know the correct terminology of lettering!)The font you need (I have a few that match) is Aachen Std Bold. Other possibilities are Aardvark and Blacksmith (they all look the same).
I do graphics in a T-Shirt shop and have a customer whose business is 'Callahan Ceramic Tile'
He brought in an old Callahan Auto Parts shirt he got from somewhere (it had a Paramount copyright on it), and I recreated it with 'Ceramic Tile' in place of 'Auto Parts' for him.
He orders a new batch every year.
