as bizzare as that sounds..... my boss's dad used to work for ford, and he was talking about how he was thinking about getting a diesel car because of how efficient they can be and so on... well he was talking about when he worked for ford back in the late 70's and early 80's, he said at one point they offered a lincoln mark series car, with any engine you wanted in it, so he opted the diesel. he said he loved it.

so i guess, yea they do exist.

The nice thing about those cars is they are exempt from emisions. The states determine this by VIN so if you bought one, you could do whatever you want motor wise and be free of the smog Nazis.
