Have had Optima red tops in my 914 since ~1992.

I think I have only had 2, maybe 3…so easily 10 years per. The big attraction back in the 1990s was avoiding hell hole rust. But they are heavy, so I think about an Odyssey or Anti-Gravity. Or that new orange top from Optima. For both of my fun cars, as I value less weight over more hp.

Having just lost a fair bit to a house fire (electrical, but not car related), @technicalninja has me rethinking the value of 30-40lbs saved vs having the car/garage/house.
