Chevrolet's "Car Conservation Plan"

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early technology. See articles from Life, published 1883-1972 . All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Some things never change, as the old saying goes. One of those things is adopting a good preventive maintenance plan for your car or truck. Oil, transmission, and cooling system fluid level and condition are tasks even the least mechanically inclined amongst us can do ourselves. So is inspecting and replacing if necessary intake and cabin air filters. Checking the condition of brakes, suspension parts, body panel integrity (corrosion and proper fastening), and other easily inspected components my not be the purview of most motorists, but friends and/or professional servicemen can take care of that for you. Admittedly, there is a large amount of not just unserviceable but incomprehensible technology on modern cars (computers, fuel injection, tire pressure monitors, backup cameras, radar and sonar systems, etc.), so those maintenance responsibility of those areas must be ceded to highly trained technicians. This appeal to automobile owners to do their part in conserving resources appeared in a 1942 issue of Life magazine at a time when the U.S. had recently joined the second world war (following the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor). The vast amount of material that would be required to obtain victory over advancing Communist and Fascist forces of Axis militaries required a diligent effort by citizens to conserve. A familiar saying during the WWII era was "Use it up. Wear it out. Make it do, or do without."

About RF Cafe

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
