Once upon a time, my IHC Scout's security system was a mercury switch from a

feelings of remembrance of the salted roads back east), and by all means
resist any 
temptation to put a "Turbo Diesel" or "WVO" or "Intercooled" or any other
boastful badge on the rear, or anywhere else for that matter.  :-)
