Yes, average distances travelled on an old engine compared to now are vast. I guess the reasons are the quality of materials used in the construction of the engine and the 0.001mm acuracey of the maching process. I do like technology, when I understand it.
I think that we can thank the Japs for bringing cars to Oz as it made the local guys lift their game a little bit.
