QST [AM], QST [AM], QST [AM] ......

IF, like mine, your first thoughts about Jim's 3-pronged response to Joe's 
creative idea were:

1.  Duct tape;

2.  He didn't mean the car he drives, he meant one of the others (yard 
cars); AND

3.  See 2.

THEN  (again like me),                   You MIGHT be a  ..............      
; - )

Hmmm, been most interesting. If I tried this with my 1999 Dodge Stratus, and
my open frame BC-610 transformer, two things would occur:

1.) rust since my trunk seal leaks
2.) my gas mileage will suffer noticeably as well as car handling

and maybe,

3.) If I get into an accident, the dang thing might smash me where I sit in
the drivers seat. A BC-610 transformer flying through the air is not easily
stopped!

Regards,
