And here's one more thought to consider: Most people who service late model cars know the owners have limited ownership horizons. They will not own the car they' re fixing today in 1 year or 2 or 5. Things that may wear out "later" will be someone else's problem. Not so on the collector car your dad purchased and your son now dreams of owning, when you are old. For that person, service must be done to a high standard, with a view toward a far distant horizon.
I hope this makes clear some of the additional challenges we face when doing a seemingly common service on an older car.
