Aww - come on now Dave - I'll put my vac wipers up against your 'lectric ones any day - just make sure I'm behind you so that when mine quit I'll be able to follow you to see where I'm going.
Your right about the electric wipers - much better than these old vacs - I do like to keep mine out of the rain but been in some real frog stranglers with them - they worked fine but was always thinking they would give out hearing the vac/swish/vac/swish - that's on my to do list. The Tbird did it's snow duty back in the 60's & 70's - now it gets to enjoy life and leave the rough weather to the 4WD truck (they don't make wide white snow tires
). Just want to find a switch for the washer for now.
