And I'm running the same battery I put in our 64 back ten years ago. Diehard International, 27F, made by Johnson Controls. Unfortunately, Sears switched to Deka a couple years ago, so my next one will be from Advance Auto Parts, which is a Johnson Controls made battery.scumdog - I'm still using the battery that was new in my car when I got it in '05.
For someone who can remember when gas was 25 cents a gallon and automobiles were engineered to last; the present state of all things automotive is a sad thing. I don't hold any hope that things will turn around- ever.
If you find a battery that will last 5 years or more- you found a rare thing!
