I am glad to see that there is no temp at which Ford pickups refuse to start. That way I can still get to work all winter.

Speaking of Ford Trucks, I just changed out my battery for the Winter dead ahead of us. It was due.
Next the shocks and tires.

Hard to start.

At minus 20 my day old Saturn refused to start. My 1941 Ford tractor did.
At the Saturn dealer I told the other non staring Saturn owners that story many times. Batteries are in the trunk. If down a bit, not enough juice made it to the starter. they drop volts while sitting in the lot. I got them to put in a new battery.
We need to buy our moonshine early to avoid price increases.

My old VW Beetle has the battery under the rear seat too. Have to put a rubber floor mat over it. That way if you hit a bump, the seat springs do not make contact with the battery posts. Ask me, and my son, how I know.
