My battery on my 69 Camaro is just about dead.  I am looking to get a new side post battery that is the old style R89.  Ricks has one for $285..WOW.  Is there another source?  I see there are battery toppers...but I have only found R59 top post.  Do they make a side post battery topper?  Is there a way to convert a R59 top post topper to a side post topper?  If anyone knows where to get an R89  for a better price then Rick, please let me know.  I was looking to spend about $150 at most.  If not, I guess I will just get a regular battery for now and wait to see if a side post topper ever gets produced.

Yes, there is - Restoration Battery in Cincinnati is the manufacturer (www.restorationbattery.com); that's where Rick's (and others) probably get them. They sell the maintenance-free side-terminal R89S for $250.00.
