Why is it that every make of car selling for over $4000 uses bodies of exactly the same type? Why? For the same reason that Chevrolet uses it exclusively.

Steel alone is also inclined to rumble and rattle, BUT—when you put the two together—a heavy .staunch steel body over tough, solid hardwood— then the hardwood reinforces the steel—and vice versa!
