Default Re: Against compression

Its one of the reasons the car endured through the decades in my opinion.The engine wears gradually and evenly,degrading slowly.The cars were run on penny a quart drain oil and sold for 5 bucks in the late forties instead of pitching a rod through the block and grenading like modern engines do,essentially avoiding the scrapyard because they still had value.
