Thanks for the interesting post, Rob.  I don't have any knowledge of the
amount of pollution created during manufacture, but I personally like
keeping old cars running.  It's a fact that newer cars are cleaner out the
tailpipe, but like Rob points out, there is some cost to the environment in
building new and discarding the old <snip>

Interesting bit of personal history, a few years ago my I had emissions
testing on my 87 4KQ and 97 Jetta GLX. While both cars were well maintained
and  passed easily, the Audi had lower hydrocarbon and NOX levels. They were
even tested at the same station..
