    OK I have a 1971 Ford Maverick 302 slightly worked. I am in need of an anti-freeze change & was wondering what everyone was running. I was thinking of trying to find a synthetic anti freeze but not sure if it's worth the money?

    Isn't all anti-freeze synthetic?

    I use whatever green is on sale... Car is 46 years old, what it's had all its life...

    If you are only driving 2K mi a year, even the green will last five years or more...

    If you think waterless antifreeze is high tech, check out my new cordless Bluetooth lawn sprinkler...

    Depends on the Wi-Fi settings. Remember to always scan the htrz being used in your area first before using this type of cordless watering hose. Dont let some hacker steal your water from across the neighborhood.
