Yup. Just try running it on the highway in the Rockies pulling a travel trailer...........Car engines have the same corrosion problem. The difference is a car is treated like a baby if it’s an old original. The cam and cylinders have rust and is grinding away too. The difference is the car is on parade while an airplane had to perform as new. A 20,000 mile 58 Olds(got an A&P buddy that owns one, one family) has its value in being 20,000 miles. It’s just starting up enough to back off the trailer and back on at a car show. If it was going to make repeated LA to NY trips, it is not going to make it without attention.
