Funny thing was, back in the day the steel 4 piston disc brake callipers would start to rust and seize up after some years. Happened to us in mid 1970's. Fixing all those pistons/bores/seals was a chore and some people didn't trust the disc brakes yet, so rather than fix them up some folks would revert to the old "go with what they knew worked in the day" drum brakes. Sounds, well, ret*rded today, but that's how it was back then.
