Found this at Goodwill of all places. Looks like it's from at least the late 90's.

Those older Fram filters were made before they improved their quality control.

They are what gave the name a bad reputation.

Are you going to cut it open ? Could be interesting to compare with newer made Frams.

The sad part is that someone might actually be fool enough to buy it.

How is that a reason to post about an oil filter in the air filter section?

Buy it and cut it open. That way we can compare old junk to today's junk.

Kind of like how we can compare junk posts from old screen names to new ones.

No, Fram Core filters are a Walmart only filter used in their TLC, not usually found in the wild.

They are a e-core style center cage filter, equal to or maybe just a step below the regular [censored]. I think some sizes are metal center tube and end caps.
