Shawn Wright and all : I have followed this discussion for some time now and being a
HONDA fan and diesel type ...--- may I make a few remarks.?
To design and prove a good Diesel for a car is a very costly affair. . Look at Volvo
they have one of the best diesel design teams in the world --BUT they are using the VW
design. and now the Japanese are doing the same thing --sorry I forgot the make Toyota
---why ? . Simple economics.-----like I said for a long time --the first day I took
a VW 1.5L NA completely to pieces ? WOW what a design.
It is a masterpiece if ever there was one.---- I get in troubles up here in REAL diesel
land --when I mention a diesel without sleeves. ---Those REAL diesel mechanics call them
throw away diesels .
I thought they were going to throw me away ---from the local watering hole.When I
mentioned that I own a Lister ---they said I could stay.
I agree with those who said lets wait and see for a while ----let the Honda prove it got
the Wright stuff.
The VW Lupo is well proven design by now---and it is Aluminium ATMI ----and it sure get
I talk to a guy in Copenhagen just about every day, who owns one --got it brand new. He
is tickled pink with it.
The curse of diesels ? ---its weight. ---- I like the VW --as fragile as it is ---a
GOOD operator can make them sing. Look at Val Christian --he kept them going from
977 --probably the first sold in - in --Entire State.
We get them cheap (old Rabbits) in part due to the book Lemon-Aid.---- My dream is to
take one right across North Amerika -----I just watched the Amerikan Vacation (Lampoon
version) Griswald goes to Wallyworld LA from Chicago.---makes me wanna go. That is my
LAST will ---Lord let me go.
