But JR... how can you test it's ability to stop before you get it "going"??? 

I just turned thirty but I'm still an idiot kid... have yet to get the 
brakes right on any antique car I've owned...  if they don't leak and pass 
the PA inspection (micrometer) tests....  that's all they get.  I really do 
need to replace all my soft lines at least....  I've constantly got the 
condition (on all my vairs) where the first instant you hit the brakes the 
car pulls one way or the other... and you never know which cause it's 
random!  My understanding is this is caused by stretch in the brake lines 
and/or rust embedded in the surface of the shoes from sitting a long while 
then being driven.

But I'm always broke and have other priorities (like a headliner?)... 
stopping is over rated!
