Sometimes I get spam that is just too good to throw away. Like, this friendly message I got recently:
Dear Sir,

I am James Shen from a diesel fuel injection parts Plant, hope we can help you in the line of military use diesel fuel engine parts.

With more than 20 years experience in this field, our factory is producing the parts: HD90101A and HD8821. They are used in the engine system of M35A2 and M60 tank. Their most competitive price (almost one tenth of the product which made in USA) and the same quality will meet your need fairly.

We are one of ADS members. Our products have a good reputation with sound quality and competitive price in European market, South American market and other countries.

If you feel interested in our products, please let us know any time. We are always within your touch.

Thanks and best regards,

James Shen

Dear Mr. Shen,

It gives me a warm feeling to know that the manufacturer or my military use diesel fuel injection parts is within touch at any time. I might take advantage of that some day.

People tend to frown on M60 tanks in the quiet neighborhood I live in, so we mostly keep it in the garage. Only when we absolutely, positively must find parking in town on a Saturday night do we ignore convention and take the tank.

So far I have foolheartedly taken my tank in for service at the factory-authorized mechanic. But they rip you off every time. Next time I'll do the right thing and buy cut-rate generic parts from you and install them myself. After all, you have a good reputation with sound quality. I'll take your word for it, I don't even need to know your company name.

Please send me a whole crate of HD8821. We go through these things like there's no tomorrow. It's my wife who revs it a little too hard sometimes.
