I beg to differ here.
I had a plastic filter on my 69 and I too felt it was not "tuff" enough so I 
removed it and since it was full of crap from the tank I thought I'd tear it 
apart and get a closer look at the junk. I was surprised how tough the 
plastic was. I replaced it with one like it and have used them on several 
other cars.
Your "tuffness" may vary.
