every time i get valve stem covers, someone steals them.

i even caught my neighbor kid selling them to one of my other neighbors for $1.00!

i told him if he ever took them again i was going to kick his ass.

Hmmmm. That's going to take some thought. Can I get back to you on that?

I already thought of that. See, I filled the valve stem with spitting cobra venom and if a picklechugging zit faced kid tries to steal 'em. Wam! Cobra venom in the eyes.

PS Maybe you should move to a new neighborhood.

OK - now you made it to the big leagues.

With the hex edges you can now use an air-powered lug wrench to tighten them to proper specs. Make sure to set to .005lb/ft or else you will shear off the rubber mount.

If you are having a problem with the local kids swiping them then get the locking air valve caps with the special Lexus key needed to remove them.

Where? Maybe SE PA? Then you can get started on your polygamy goal.

Actually I haven't had the theft problem since I reclaimed my gargage space from my b/f. Whoever had the nicest car got the garage space!

Yuppers. Manny, Moe and Jack. Homos. Actually, Pep Boys originated in Philadelphia. How's that for worthless info?

Don't take a car there for service - your coinholder will surely get stripped.

I need a nice plain jane set of Chrome license plate frames. The ones at Pep boy are severely Ghetto. Unless you like the barb wire or chains look of course.

Any good spots on line? I don't need it to say Lexus or anything...just two classic frames in chrome...I want to match my knob.
