rules?

Perhaps it is time to establish some guidelines on how long to post a new
question or who gives one in his/her place. Just my humble opinion. Jim

86Dub you can jump right in and take this over but I can't wait!

What is the reason for the myth that you are not supposed to store a car battery on a concrete floor?

That is what people think happens, that is not true of course. But that isn't what the REAL reason it was suggested not to put a battery on concrete.

It is a Myth now to not put it on concrete, but there was a real reason, what is that?

Dave, search engines are just not fair with this game! It's your turn!

By the way, I have had some pretty heated arguments over this topic over the years.

Brian I actually knew that answer without going to the web, but since we seem to be having some "challenged" answers lately thought that a good reference like Interstate Batteries would solve this one once and for all

Now - hopefully someone will know these WITHOUT reference to Wikipedia or similar. There are two questions, and not connected but if you folks are really car buffs should at least be close:

1. What year and what were the circumstances for the first known use of a rear view mirror?

2. Who invented the windshield wiper and when?

Cole - Looks like with your Wikipedia/Google answers that you're next!! But with that said, for the rear view mirror really is not the normally stated answer for a semi-commercial use but almost a myth. The actual first documented and mounted to an automobile for use mirror is another story - and that car is still available for admiring and I have seen it in person and probably if pushed could find a print of a photo I took.

I am sorry Dave W .yes i did google the answers.and i really dont think most can answer the biggest part of the questions on here without google/wikipedia.and i thought it was part of the fun.to have to look things up for what we didnt have a clue for the most part the answers.and we all would still be learning.i will be the first to admit i am not to old to learn and i still want to learn.sorry i carried on alittle.now for my question google if you like.( what is the smallest production car ever made and how many survive today)

Ok, no google, but no name. It was a wooden gate looking thing with a fifth drive wheel, and one exists.
