I've been quietly laughing at the various stories about changing tires.
You see, when I was young, I worked at a service station (we actually
waited on customers), and used to change tires all the time on a machine
that was not much more than the HF one.  It was just part of the job.

But the funniest was when one of the boss's friends came in and needed
to change some racing tires for his stock car.  It wouldn't fit the tire
changer, so they did it by hand.  A couple of rubber mallets, and a
couple of tire irons, some pounding and prying, and the racing tire was
off the rim.  Some more work, and the new tire was mounted.  It took
about as long as it would have taken on the machine (a lot more sweat

Machine?  Machine?  We don't need no stinking machine...
