THE INSULT FILE includes such gems as this one:
“You are a fiend and a sniveling coward, and you have bad breath. You are the unholy spawn of a bandy-legged hobo and a syphilitic camel. You wear strangely mismatched clothing with oddly placed stains. You are degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just knowing that you exist. I despise everything about you, and I wish you would go away. You are jetsam who dreams of becoming flotsam. You won’t make it. I beg for sweet death to come and remove me from a world which became unbearable when the bioterrorists designed you.”

The J.C. Whitney Catalogue was the equivalent of a phonebook for amateur and professional auto mechanics. So many things I wanted (like a Klaxon horn) and so many things I couldn’t afford as a teenager. I bought a vinyl black “leather” jacket for $14 and a can of “Smell-Nu” for my ’57 Chevy. Worked so well I made my bedroom, bathroom, hallway, family room and kitchen smell like a new car. Mom was not pleased.
For $4 you can get a rear wheel outer grease seal for your 1928-38 Ford Model A. Presses into hub and keeps dirt out of the roller bearing, but you’re going to need two.
