-1 on the Optima Yellow Top. I went through 2 of them. I'll never buy one again.
I don't remember the specs on my current battery, but a trickle charger is a must. I actually unhooked mine for the winter. I would recommend getting one with both side and top mount terminals. With just the side terminals, it was a pain the charge or even take the battery in and out. I converted mine over and addeds a quick disconnect to make things much easier. I did make sure to get a battery with a high amount of cold cranking amps. Remember, this is an old v8 and it takes a lot to get it going!
