A rhetorical question? .... are you referring to fact that Nural stands for Nuremburg Aluminum?

 

Originally made in Nuremberg Bavaria from 1971, but now they're manufactured at several sites across the world.

Nural were taken over by Federal Mogul in 1999, & Federal Mogul were taken over by Tenneco last October.

Tenneco are in financial doo-doo at the moment so who knows who will own or manufacture the Nural OE pistons in the future
