    Who has the \"connection\" for Optima batteries?

    In Hollister, someone mentioned to me they had a connection to get Optima Yellow-top batteries at a good price.......if I recall it was Rob (The85K5?).....but I met a LOT of people and forget who told me what!! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Sorry I've been so absent lately. This new job is VERY time consuming and I'm exhausted every night when I get home....I haven't even had the energy to do "Welding Night in the Man Space" yet....... /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Wow - found it easy. Strange.......

    American Battery Co
    3488 Arden Rd - Hayward
    (510)259-1150

    I purchased a Yellow Top on 6/12/01 for $146.97.

    Can you please post your findings if you contact this place? Curious to see if they are still offering good prices.
