You're missing a sense of degree. This car was likely 20+ years old (if not
30+) when you got it (or at least by the time you got rid of it). DnD 3e on
the other hand is roughly 3.5 years old.
One stopped being made a few decades ago, the other a few years ago.
'The point is that I knew that I would have those kinds of problems when I
chose those cars, and I chose them anyway because that's what I wanted to do.
That's the trade-off I make when I opt for an obsolete car/OS/game
I'm not sure about you, but I, and thousands of others bought the 3e games
within the first year (in fact during their introductory period). This was not
even half a decade ago. This was when the plans for a revision were set for
sometime in our future instead of last year.

Overall I agree with your opinion of not whining for this or that, but.
'Keep your excuses for someone who needs them.'
This sentence is the reason I chimed in.
BTW I don't see how you had such problems finding parts, especially for the
classic American car.
I mean, if I can't even get a discount out of someone else's misfortune,
what's the point?

- It basically depends on how they were written by the publisher.
I would imagine any new sources publishers produce will be geared towards
3.5 and that's how they'll be coded for PCGen.
Older stuff was obviously created for 3.0 rules and so will be coded that
I would presume if OGL publishers put out conversion documents, we'd have a
set for each ruleset. :p
