An LD diesel...that's not a garage queen, it's a High Mile example.  I
don't think I've ever heard of one getting all the way to 11k miles

On the clipped parts of the post, we're in complete agreement.  Maybe the
way you wrote it came across as a blanket indictment of all rust belt
V8's.  FWIW most of New England doesn't get the frost heaves you get up
in Maine (pot holes are just as bad or worse down here), for those who
don't know what one is or calls little ridges frost heaves, the ones you
get up Rogers way can launch a car several feet in the air if they catch
you by surprise...BTDT.

and three or more is a congress."
