I was down at the local Pep Boys last night buying wheel spacers,
(but that's another story) and saw a container of magic anti-freeze
that was supposed to lower your coolant system temperature by 40
degrees. It was called sub-zero, or fourty below, or something like
that. I opened the lid and took a wiff. Sure enough it had a very
strong and familiar solvent smell. I couldn't quite place it, but
I'll bet they are up to thier old tricks agian. I though Bob, alt
the least would be interested.
