We ordered them in “Any Color you Like”. The wait made “Time” seem to drag. The debate between gassers and oil burners really did turn into “Us and Them”. You had to read a few posts with #alsfajljl*wrepawer in them to figure out that Chiv was just very creative and didn’t have “Brain Damage”. Excursion not only knows diesels but really was dreaming of the “Great Gig in The Sky”, Finally, Chevy was kind enough to offer a tour and “Welcome to The Machine”. When they are finally delivered, we will still owe "Money". Still, can’t wait until we can “Have a Cigar”.

It does, and it does more than keep the tranny cool. The tranny is so efficient it actually has an auxiliary heater. See attached image.

Uh oh....my SFU detoured. Next stop was most likely Louisville KY. Instead it stopped in Superior Blds, OH. Anyone know what the "Lima-bshop" location is?

Train Arrival 10/29/2013 07:12 PM EDT On Railcar - Lima-bshop Superior Blds, OH

My initial reply that I drafted then deleted was along those same lines... "Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail (that's missing my CRD)?" and "
New [Jeep], caviar, four star day dream, think I'll buy me a football team..." and even "Encumbered forever by desire and ambition, there's a hunger still unsatisfied. Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon (looking for my SFU), though down this road we've been so many times." But I thought the cheesy references would just annoy the non-PF fans so I kept the post to only an image in tribute to one of the greatest albums of all time. ;-)

So maybe I'll just keep
ticking away the moments that make up a dull day and fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way until my CRD finally leaves the Charlevoix Yard....

LOL, I hope you aren't holding your breath. It appears Diesel production has ceased completely, I've been D1 going on five weeks now.

I've put off selling my current Jeep as who knows when they will start producing them again.

Lima bshop is code for a body shop in Lima, OH about 80 miles southwest of Toledo. It's where the transit company takes vehicles that were damaged during load or unload. Its going to be day two. - there is an Audi C7 in line before you. lol

Ah crap, please don't tell me that. My wife is due in december her '97 GC isn't really cutting it anymore. I'm hoping the D1 magically changes to KZ overnight.

So long as the one you found is not spoken for, and it's not more, than, say, 150 miles away, you should be good.

For instance, the same Bremerton dealer is brining up a 14 Durango for a friend of mine from OR.

But, to do this, you will need to sign the PO and be *damn* sure you want it.

The Audi was reference to Temerarius' post earlier today.

I suspect the OH stop is a rail interchange.
