I know where your getting at exactly, and yes it would be sortof dooms day for us V8 and big 6's diehards.
However looking on the bright side, they had this hype in 1986 where cars by the turn of the century will be powered by alternative fuels. Hell even Ford and nearly holden for that matter dropped the V8 by the mid eighties.
Now look at us, Holden and Ford are kicking away with big V8's with massive horsepower.
Surely if Ford and GM realise that oil will runout and people don't want V8's they wouldn't be making these engines.
Quite frankly IMO i reckon i'd be a while yet before where driving around in Vacuum cleaners and Swatch cars.
