I've bought LED auto taillight replacement bulbs at Pep Boys.  I'm  
sure there must be some place in the frozen north that also would  
have such things.   Happy Christmas taillight shopping!

Yes, I know that I can get SOME replacements at the local car parts  
store -- but I specifically want LED 1156 bulbs.  The LED  
replacements I've seen are for the newer-style lamps, such as the  
3157 -- plastic four-pin-wide base.  But what about replacements for  
the older cylindrical metal basse with pine in the middle and ground  
on the shell?  My local car parts store says No, we haven't seen  
anything/don't have anything.

1156, 1157, 194 -- those are the numbers I'm trying to cross.  I've  
emailed a major bulb vendor to ask the same question, and if nothing  
else works I'll let you know what I find.
