Know-How – American Style


Have you noticed:  Many of the cars on the road are more than 20 years old.  It is not unusual to see cars over 25 years old.

When I was a wee laddie in the 1940s and a young teen in the 1950s, it was really rare to see a pre-WW2 car on the road.  By the time I was in high school the vast majority of the cars were made in 1950 or later.

Cars last a lot longer today and get much better gas mileage.  In the 1950s, if you got 10,000 on a set of tires you were doing real good.  Now some tires are warranted  for up to 70,000 miles.

American ingenuity and union workers made that happen.
