    Thanks for quick response. I remember that Edmunds used to have best lease deals of the month indexed by zip code, which was a great way to find deals quickly. That was pretty useful as it was one stop shopping.

    Several years ago you commented on Frantz Oil Filters, specifically media migrating into the oil system. I can say that has never happened to a Frantz user in all their history since the 1950's. You only need to look at the design. I started using a Frantz Oil Filter on my 1963 Studebaker Avanti back in 1965 when it had 14,000 miles on it. The Frantz is a bypass unit which works along with your full flow filter. The full flow will take out big chunks, the Frantz will filter out the finest materials, down to 1 micron in size. Frantz is still in business and now sells oil filters for around $200.00, and you can buy special filters from them if your are afraid of migration. I used toilet paper and changed the cartridge every 2000 miles, adding a quart of oil for the quart that the Frantz used. I changed my oil every 30,000 to 40,000 miles (didn't need to) and he oil was always as clean as the day it came out of the can. It works - or Frantz would be out of business.
