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.
