True, but think of this: that 1911 Fiat would have had the same game-changing impact as its spiritual successor, 110 years later:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RE_w1-5eHgI
50 years on, the tech had trickled down to produce the Fiat 500!
So too the latest tech will permeate the commuter fleet.
(Disclaimer; our fleet is wholly electric, and I don't miss the gas pump experience in any way.
There is no going back.)
The jet age didn't take anything away from the magic of those Merlins, if anything they became more special.
We will still have 427 Ford and small-block Chevy's in our future weekends, which is where they belong.
Nobody commutes in a Cobra.
