First thing I thought was "Corvette Summer". W....T....F?

Reality is a matter of perspective.

I owned a couple of those old GM diesels way back when. They ran great

Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one's own beliefs. Rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.

That has popped up a few times before recently. I don't remember if its always been on ebay but the photo set looks the same. Must not be meeting the reserve.

I figured the response from a bunch of diesel enthusiasts would be a little better than the average person. Have not seen a dmax vette yet but there are a few 6.5 ones roaming around. Pretty sure at least one of them is on youtube.

96 Burb K25 3.42's SOLD at 340K miles, told it was all original, close race between engine wearing out or body completely rust out.
95 Burb K25 4.10's 250K miles, new to me, looks to have been rebuilt at least once, stock, bad rust, DE exhaust w/walker muffler, 8' western plow.
81 Buick Riviera with the infamous Olds 5.7 diesel still going strong.
13 VW Jetta Sport Wagon TDI of course, does low 40's around town and can see 50's on the highway.
