I was hoping that someone here might have an answer to a Caterpillar question that has come up on the snopes urban legends message board. Here's the thread in question:
The question (comment) that came in was via email to snopes, and reads:
"I have heard several times that Caterpiller Inc. has a diesel
engine that has been running as a wear test, well since the 1950's."
I'm a participant there, and the board members participate in researching some of these odd comments that seem to circulate forever. I was wondering if anyone here could verify if this was true, or a rumor, and on what it might have been based.
