Cool Bob - Thanks. I think this is on the money. I think we have Kragen
out here.

Google seemed useless.

Sears is a good idea - though there's no "automotive" on their home
page. Kind of odd. A search for "car battery" gets hits though.

*chuckle* - I like that answer. I'd ICQ my uncle - if he had an ICQ

Cool beans!

It's for a plain vanilla Toyota Corolla - 1988. Which wanted to be
ornery this morning. I think it's just the battery, but it might be
more. I let it lay, and Jenny (my wife) brought me to work. But I want
to sort out which battery I need to get during the day, then when she
picks me up we can go get a battery.

Thanks a million for all the thoughts!
