I have experienced wear on my low mileage Jensen CV-8 (found out about it
when I had to pull a head for something else), which I rebuilt just before
lead became an issue. I have not done all that many miles on it, but many
have been going to and from meets in California from BC - 10 hours at a time
on the highway seems a formula for accelerated wear.
Oh yes - let me say that this 'awards' business is in the poorest of taste -
no wonder the perpetrators have chosen to hide their names. The people cited
are presumably young and enthusiastic, and have perhaps not yet learned all
there is to know about their cars (who among us has?). Since when has
unbridled enthusiasm been a sin? We were all there once - that's why they
read this group - to learn. I would much rather tolerate their sometimes
simplistic questions than your malicious response.
(hoping that the bronze seats in the Lamborghini are up to the job!)
