I was browsing around for SVO conversions, and saw a discussion of how it
is actually very ecologically sound of us to keep and maintain these old
cars, mainly because during the time that they have been around, a
"normal" car might have had to been replaced two or three times. Thus,
the materials and energy that would have been expended to produce these
new vehicles did not need to be used.
An interesting argument, I thought. Taken into account that my old diesel
gets 22 MPG, with many getting more than that, and these old workhorses
have been doing better than most cars for a long time...
Just thought I'd throw it out there
