The last time I bought a car, I paid only cursory attention to the engine and other under-the-hood components. I know how many cylinders it has, but I have no idea how much horsepower it delivers, the displacement of its engine or how many seconds it takes to get from 0 to 60. All I know is that it will exceed the speed limit on any road I will drive and manage to get up any hill I'm likely to climb. Back in the '50s and '60s, people used to pay a lot more attention to their car specifications.
