Naw, we just need to have a few more torque-filled, fast,
and quiet diesels on the road with the owners saying, "I
got 55mpg on my last tank," to win over the general public,

trucks, and the abomination that GM tried to force on them.
The "real" diesel cars we had at the time (MB and VW) were

And Detroit will once again be scrambling to put together a
'94 100 S Avant, "Moody"
'89 200 TQ, "Bad Puppy" up in smoke
