Said to me today at the gas station when I was filling up my Corvette.
To which I replied - "If it ain't broke..."

Even though in this case, the guy was in fact a total douche, just because one idea is newer than another idea that's still current doesn't mean it's not outdated.
Leaded gasoline is newer tech than unleaded gasoline, but leaded gasoline is outdated.
Pushrod tech is still very current, though, for large-displacement V engines.

If it hauls ass, I don't care how old it is.
People are too strung up on highly efficient engine nowadays. That's nice and dandy but a gas guzzling V8 is orgasmic for my ears

The Chevrolet Corvette, while not exactly a fuel miser, does get better fuel economy with its 5.7L V8 than the BMW M3 with its 3.2L inline 6. And the Corvette's engine makes more power as well.
Of course, the above statement is heretical in the Car Lounge, where BMW can do no wrong, and GM can do no right.

you're still riding on tires???? that's so old tech.

LOL, I wonder how many of the anti-pushrod guys also cling to their manuals whenever there's talk of sequential transmissions. Manuals are so outdated, get with the future!
