I hear ya. I have seen many an old time ink drawing like you mentioned. Back then they let an engineering/technical artist (as I have been told they were called) take the time to sit down and and create and make it look beautiful. The ones I have seen are simply fantastic. I have seen piping drawings that made things like pipes and fittings look fantastic. I think old aircraft companys were the best at it for some reason. It is going to become a lost artform in the very near future.
probably already is. I see a lot of blue prints and even something that simple can look cool. Time consuming to make though.

Pretty big pic from a design project I was involved in.

Done in Pro-Engineer. Took four (five?) of us about 2 weeks to get the basics and another few weeks revising and coordinating the drawings before we ended up with the final results.
