I was just picturing, because my job is so boring, leaving the cover or whatever off the battery, and having people you don't like sit on that seat.

I know, they probably have safegurds against that, but still....

err. JR beat me to it, I was just about to post it.. but yep, that'* the exact reason for the battery being back there, there really isn't any other reason for it. I can tell you this though, sure makes it nice for hooking up sound systems.
I still have the original 97 battery and there is absolutely NO corrosion on the terminals or anything, it is still like brand new.
