They hit skids and just couldn't align themselves with the website, who slammed the brakes on the deal.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Still waiting for an answer...

And wondering what relationship the new owners of BW and the new wheel and tire forum (The Discount Tire Direct Tire, Wheel, Brake & Suspension) have in common? Could there be a connection?? Hummmmm...

Don't believe everything you think

I heard they all hang around at a ball joint.

We must bring all these ball joints into alignment before anyone else dares to tread in one of these places.

Yes, those places are a regular axle of evil. I've heard a lot of big wheels like to run around in circles in those places, and never get tired.

I perfer to pinion her rack, especially if it is well greased, and she has a large camber.
