    Hey jckirlan...I have some Eastern Airlines stock I would love to hook you up with. And as to all those super duty trucks running around...If you pull a huge boat on the Weekend you still have to have the truck even thouugh you dont use it the other 5 days of the week.

    Actually its not so much that our emissions standards are so much stricter than Europe's, its that thanks to oil company lobbying, our diesel fuel is much worse. For years I worked for a class 8 truck maker, and our data had US diesel as delivered at the pump in the lowest possible tier for contaminants and refinement - worse than most of the third world and well below the more refined diesel available throughout Europe.

    mkirk, Don't worry you can still buy OLD GM stock. Despite warnings from the SEC, new GM, and anybody who can read a P&L, you can still buy stock in the BK'd company. I wish them the best of luck.

    My Dad's a diesel mechanic. He lamented that in order to fix take the heads off these Powerstroke Fords you have to lift off the cab too. Apparently they use really terrible fasteners, so he said he couldn't imagine what they'd look like in ten years. I trust him, heh.
