Re: Battery Question

Auto Zone has good prices, Sears does to when the batteries are on sale.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

Re: Battery Question

I work in a shop, so I know what's good and what's not. Stay away from Exide, they don't seem to be that great. We've had good luck with interstate batterys. Also, if you are performance mind oriented, try one of those skinny batterys, they will save you 10lbs - everything adds up. I have a skinny one in my RX-7 and it starts up just fine.

Also, the DRY Cell batterys are nice, because they don't leak, but they are a tad more expensive. Make sure that you clean off the corrosion on your battery cables before you install them back onto the new battery. Then spray them and the battery terminals down with some battery protector. Also, use terminal washers, they help big time in keeping the corrosion down.
