We call this the "swirled stainless" look. We also offer knurling for $20 more or the "South of the Border special" that includes use of bolt on ground effects and LED lighting.

Jimmy's experience was a lesson to his classmates - read the label: it's not easy distinguishing between ginger and carrot shampoo and the resin Dad uses to repair the boat.

Lng grabbed the wrong satchel that morning, and was pretty amused thinking that Ng was about now trying to cut aluminum siding with hair snips!

Then he pressed the trigger and the kid jumped a mile outa his seat!

And that's it, your honor.
