There's one little problem with bookmarking a site... What happens when the site no longer exists?

May I suggest that you make an "ASTRO" folder on your hard disk and then download the page to your HD?

I've been doing that for about 15 years for my CJ7 Jeep, my ol' Caravans, Ranger PU, Prius and now the ASTRO. These folders contain almost everything I can find of use to my vehicles... the data has been invaluable over the years and saved me lots of time, money and grief.

I can carry the information on a thumb drive, or on my Ipod, Laptop, or a CD-Rom squirreled away in the vehicle. I also have an old as heck computer in the garage that has the information loaded on it. Any time I need the information I can walk over and pull up the information I need for reference.

I sure don't want to be without the information when I need it.

I've been an Astro nut since 1994 and driven nothing else since 1997. I'm not going anywhere. I have that site backed up in triplicate and will bring online and re-post a link if for any reason Google should mess it up.
