Bangernomics is also the only future for truly environmentally sustainable transport.  Looking after cars and ensuring the maximizing of their longevity is essential to preserving the resources of the planet.  No car has ever been made, and none ever will be, which merits the scrapping of an existing car with useful life remaining in order to make way for it.  Longevity is the only factor which matters environmentally.
