[DML] Re: Battery for Delorean

I was able to get an Optima side terminal battery from my Interstate
battery supplier.  It was great because he had one on the truck so I
could check to make sure it fit first.
The battery you're looking for will fit most GM products.  (Olds,
Pontiac, Chevy, GMC, Saturn?, Vette, Buick, Caddy, etc.)
Checker, Schucks, or Kragen have a different brand of Gell cell
battery that will work.  NAPA, Carquest, Action Auto parts, really any
parts house should be able to find a Group 78 Gell cell for you.  As
long as you can find someone working there who knows how to find parts
without an application.
Just tell them you want a group 78 gell cell, that should do it.
In case you need it, it fits, among many other things, a 98 Chevy 4x2
1500 pickup with a 4.3L V6.
