Beware:  Not all group-26 batteries are created equal.  I got a battery
at Pep Boys, and they foisted off their most expensive battery on me
despite the fact that I asked for a cheap one.  It wouldn't fit.  It
had a sort of stabilizing collar around the top that was part of the case.
I took it back in (battery swap in the parking lot!) and suddenly they
were able to come up with a cheaper battery.  This one had a lip at the
bottom sides that kept it from fitting well, but I could hacksaw this one
off, so I took it.  I drove home with the battery half in the bay...
