Just in case. The G49 Battery I was talking about is used in my 300D. The 58 has an AutoZone battery too, but it is out and in the basement during the winter. The diesel isn't being used much anymore as diesel is 3.75 now and my gassers are cheaper to run. The diesel goes back to full commute work in April, 700 miles a week. Going to search around for B100 in my area. Just not enough free time to fiddle with cooking up my own.
And Yup, the 58 really is better than the old 58 US cars, but I still wouldn't mind having a nice 58 Impala :-)
