Re: Anyone catch it?

I use "Groovy" too.

It actually pre dates WW2 in US jazz circles.

Anita O'Day uses "groovy" in one of her songs from the ww2 era.

Re: Trickle charger

I have a C-tek, but I am not confident using it with an Optima.

Can they be used with an Optima? I have been told they are not compatible.

Can anyone provide accurate info?

There used to be a guy on here Old Henry. He used to drive his old Ford all over the West with his dog. Have not seen him around on here lately. Is he OK? Hope so.

Re: W.C.Fields and Robert Gordon - Too Fast To Live Too Young To Die

Yeah, he was getting chased by a Packard touring. A good scene. There is also a beautiful 1938 Buick Phaeton in that film.
