Had an customer come in today, that had just bought a used pickup. He wanted a LOF, and general look over. I changed his oil, and looked it over, told him it was in pretty good shape for a 89 with 100K on it. Then he started asking about his battery. "Did ya check the water level in the battery there kid?", and I replied, No sir, it's a gel cell, they ain't got no water in em. He ask who makes that battery with no water? I said Optima, they have a pretty good track record. He ask if we sell an American name like Interstate. Said sure do, got a rack full of them, but there ain't a thing wrong with the one you got. He say's, " Put one of them American made Interstates in there, I want something I can count on". I installed it, he paid the bill, and left. We laughed the rest of the day about the guy in the Toyota, that wanted the American made quality. I got me a Optima Red in the Jeep now, made in Colorodo, I believe.
