Sweet Jeebus, that is the finest pictorial example of "slow" I've ever seen.

Somewhere in an ancient thread on Specialstage was a Peugeot 504 Diesel flat towing a 504 rally car across the Cascades.

They ran 20' of Flexhaust from the tow vehicle around the side of the towed vehicle so it wouldn't be covered with soot.

 

For the kids in class:  Turbos on Diesels to allow them to make almost as much power as a gasoline engine is a fairly new phenomenon.  At the time, Diesel meant you got about 40-50 horsepower and you lived your life with the accelerator pedal crushing carpet and one eye in the rearview mirror at all times.  0-60 was "maybe? If you've got a nice hill to drive down? Or did you mean kilometers per hour?"

One of my last projects was putting a mortar in a side by side.

My father had an '82 Chevy with the 6.2L non-turbo diesel, and power was not the reason for that diesel, it was fuel efficiency. Really funky, because it used the Chrysler/New Process overdriven 4-speed behind it. The weird one that technically had overdrive in third gear and direct drive in fourth gear, and you were really going 1-2-4-3. The 6.2L had enough compression that it told you in the service manual not to engine-brake with the trans because it would tear the transmission up, and indeed, by the time my father got it, you had to hold it in third gear going up hills or that mile-long shifter would flop back into neutral. It was tan with the white lower body and a white bed cap, and I remember that thing shaking my brains out as a kid, and having to dodge the shift lever, since I had to ride in the middle of the bench seat.

I knew someone who had an '81 Dodge van with that trans and a slant six.  The shifter was severely cantilevered like an AC Cobra, which is the only similarity between the two.

And now for the evil arch-nemesis of the car above.  This is even worse than these things usually are:

Note to terrible car builders:  If you're going to build an ugly pile of crap, don't try to save a few bucks using crappy parts store wheelcovers.  And if you absolutely must, FOR THE LOVE OF BOB DON'T SPRAY BOMB THEM BODY COLOR.

Nope, that's one of the Chrysler Concorde/300M/Dodge Intrepid triplets.  With "Cab-Forward" styling,  that abomination is not an improvement..
