Gotta have to second on that. You might also want to take into account that some old iron actually offer a lot of room for improvements regarding mileage and emissions than a modern vehicle with a comparable role, and some resto-mod/retrofit would still be less energy-intensive and consume less raw materials than all the processes involved in the manufacturing of a brand-new car.
