It's always nice to be in good company, and with the New York Times now entering the fray, we feel justifiably smug. And tickled witless by the notion that a newspaper in which Harbinger Capital Partners has a large stake should see fit to take a swipe at a truck manufacturer in which HCP is similarly involved. Smacks to us of nice things like editorial freedom and media honesty. Ten days late, but we welcome the NY Times to our little group.

Navistar: That Amicus Curiae Motion in Full

We'd heard rumblings of some Amicus Curiae action in support of the EPA, and, as a matter of public service, and with no opinion of our own either offered or implied, here it is.Navistar v. EPA - AC Motion.pdfInteresting set of names attached, but no Paccar. Ho hum.

We'd have thought that the NA market would have solved its new inventory issues by now, but the European numbers (58 per cent of dealerships are overstocked) don't come as a surprise.

In order to comply with ADR80/03, the company will retain its EPA 07-type EGR DPF approach.Before you kick off, Shine, a couple of points to bear in mind. 1) Australia is NOT North America. 2) ADR80/03 is the equivalent of Euro V or EPA 07. Not EPA 10. For reference, a table may be found here.
