A popular perception Ben, and historically correct.  Still is a lot of crap
in this catalog too.  They have buffed up their image a bit in recent
years, however.  They now carry a significant number of name brands.  And
not all of their non-name brad stuff is that bad either.  Case in point:  I
purchased some static three-point belts for the B from them.  They are the
exact same part offered by Moss (manufacturer, model number, etc.)  The
difference - about $20 per belt, or roughly 40%.  My additude is to never
overlook any potential parts source, just to be selective!

Now if I could only get those blue and pink furry dice, and the neon lights
to go under my ground effects . . .
