    Keeper 07203 Waterproof Roof Top Cargo Bag

    $37.72, free shipping, from Amazon. Half price, although it's often on sale for $44 or so.

    I usually don't like or trust the soft carriers up top, but this one has pretty good reviews. And there's some in the warehouse even cheaper that people have been happy with (returns, in other words).

    Knowing Amazon, the price could change by the time I hit the Post button. :shades:

    Bought a roof basket for the minivan a while back and needed this to put in it.

    Where can I get the old style round one with numbers that Sears used to sell? My digital one broke and I really want the old round kind again.

    Harbor Freight. Get six and if you find two that agree with each other, keep one and take the other five back. ;)

    You give way back more in fuel costs than you save in the purchase price with those soft toppers.

    No kidding, even then are those 2 right?

    I picked up a round metal with a large dial by Slime. I think I got it at Walmart. But several of the box stores carry that brand. I was turned off by the name and the marketing but I've liked the brass colored metal analogue meter. It's within 1 pound based on other gauges I have. Like Steve says... none match.

    I had a couple of digit gauges and they developed problems after a while. Guess I'm just old fashioned.

    Some of y'all know we bought a 100 year old house here a couple of years ago and we're the second owners. The family ("kids" in their 70s) left some stuff around that's been fun picking through.

    One item I found in the basement just last month was a brass tire gauge, made by none other than Schrader. It's not one of the old turn of the century ones but probably does date back to the 50s.

    Unfortunately it's way off and I don't think you can "fix" them. My best gauge is an older Raleigh bike gauge.

    Bingo! That's exactly what I'm looking for. Next time I'm by the mart, I'll check one out. I'd bet an auto parts store would have the same thing but a bit more expensive!

    Mine is a brass color for the metal case, but certainly not brass. I had bought various pencil gauges and tried metal ones and the plastic ones. The companies package the gauges in material where I couldn't tell if the case was plastic or metal. The pencil guages were erratic.

    It's been a while, so I'll start looking at the stores for another metal, round large gauge and buy one like what I have.

    Here's an Accugage Dial Tire Gauge.

    FWIW, Consumer Reports tested tire gauges in their June 2012 issue. I don't remember the final results, but the Slime gauges did not score well.

    Honest, I'm not posting these just to frustrate you. Is this the second or third time? :shades:

    It's expired now. :(

    What do you mean? I just saw this today for the first time...right before I posted that I couldn't get into it. Really unhappy as I really like Automobile but the wife has cut me back to 2 car rags and already get Motor Trend and Car and Driver. I know they are both very similar magazines but I decided to give up Road and Track a few years ago to appease her. She just doesn't get my love for cars even after 30 something years. Hopefully this deal will resurface at some later date and I can snag a free subscription.

    Ah, sorry, I must be confusing you with someone else who kept missing this deal - it comes around every few months or so. At least you can read some of their content online.
