Actually, several years ago, Dad was looking for a rebuilt TD engine.
 Just for grins, he called up the dealer and they quoted him the best
price of anyone else he'd called.  $1600.  They did check his core
against the VIN to make sure it wasn't some kind of weird transplant
(not that any of use would do anything non-stock ;)   ), but worked out
pretty well.  That engine's sitting in the car outside >110,000 miles
later.  I was greatly suprised at the deal, but hey, guess they gotta be
cheap enough to sell _some_ parts.

I think I need some of those headlught buckets, too.  May have to give
them a call.  After I check everywhere else....
