Not just the diesels, but also the underpinnings are shared with the Opel/Vauxhall Astra.
Although from what I understand they've softened them up quite a bit.

The big truck thing around here (at least once you get out into the country a bit) is the truly giant diesel exhausts. I saw one belching soot that was at least 12" dia.

I've always liked trucks although they're so over the top nowadays. I currently drive a little '91 S-10 with a 4 cyl / 5 speed as a commuter. Next to even a stripper F150 it looks like a toy. Next to a superduty it looks like an ant.

Saw an updated Jag XJ the other day, with the handlebar mustache Daytime Running Lights

I always correct in full view of others. It's more fun that way and makes it all the funnier when, inevitably, I cock something up myself.

Excuse me, but I am not sure I want to see you "cock something up [yourself]".
