    Right Craig, but wasn't it pretty universally understood that the Design Life of the Parts/Cars before a lot of Minor and some Major Repair was 7 Years?

      When I became “car aware”,I’d say in 1964 age 10, I knew of 2 reeeealy old cars, my grandmothers 53 Buick and aunt Emma’s 1948 Chrysler. These stood out as OLD, now, one was 11 yrs old and 16. Equivalent today, a 2009 Buick and a 2004,Chrysler. I do not believe the same feelings would apply today to these, though they are as old.
