Green lights and blue skies
to you Jack

Two silk worms had a race.
They ended up in a tie.
The easiest way to find
something you have lost
is to buy a replacement.

I dropped out of communism class
because of lousy Marx.
Frustration is trying to
find your glasses
without your glasses.
The level of excitement is rising as the date for our spring meet draws near. I'm getting ready to go. I need to pack extra socks. Don't forget the camera. Find my sneakers, my Chrysler jacket and hit the road for Michigan!

It's been parked since 74.
Then a barn fell on it in the early 90's.
I still have hope for it.

I found that when I replaced the tires on my car, the new valve stems were too short to check the tires pressure when the hub caps were installed. I checked several places and the only size offered was 1-1/4 inch extensions, which was still too short. Finally I found these 2" size for about $3.00 a pack and all is well. They are Milton 454.

I had the same problem. My tire guy says that they don't stock (or can't get) the long valve stems anymore. A web search also lead me to Milton 454.
