I bought a vented battery from one of the warehouse clubs ( Sam's 
Club ) for about $40. This was a DELCO 60 month, 560 or so CCA,
and if I remember correctly, 85 min reserve. I replaced an Autobahn
that the previous owner had put in. The date-code indicated
it was about four years old, so I figured I play safe this winter.

Sears has a new line, the Audi 5000 type is about $70 on sale,
probably 600 CCA, 115 min reserve ...
