Miss Anti-Freeze

It's Anti-Freeze Week! Or, at least, it could have been if DuPont was still promoting this car-maintenance holiday. It usually fell sometime in mid to late October.

Here's a few of the young women on whom the title of "Miss Anti-Freeze" was bestowed.

I'd rather see Miss Convertible driving along with her top down.

I had the coolant changed last year during the 100,000 mile service interval on my 2008 Ford Ranger. What I found amazing was that it was the initial coolant blend installed at the factory and that was the recommended change time for it. Automobile technology has come a long way since the 1950's when you changed coolant type from winter to summer blend.

Concur with @KDP: I’ve owned cars that I drove for 200,000 miles and changed the coolant only once or twice. Unless your car has a leak, there’s not much need to worry about it.
