    I let mine sit for about two weeks and the battery died on me. I had to let it sit and charge for awhile before it would even take a jump. I think it must be from the factory alarm, so I disabled it for now. We'll see if that helps. If not, I think I'll just get a better battery.

    Last winter was mild around here, I drove it on nice days clear into january.

    This year, I only had it out once in the last two months.

    This week end, we got hammered with that snow storm that went thru the midwest. Got 12 -14 inches of snow around here. Got the old chevy truck fired up to deal with crappy roads and weather.

    Oh, yeah. the on topic stuff:

    Put the TA away inside. Full tank of premium. Gonna put some stabil in sometime. Go out and look at it sometimes and wonder when spring is coming. Start it every 3 weeks or so.

    Gotta love these modern cars; no points to change, no carbs to mess with, just gas 'em up and drive 'em...............

    $120 sounds pretty pricey for a battery. Is it worth it?

    OPTIMA!!!

    Best $90 i've ever spent.

    As for the battery box. Really serves no purpose.
