Battery question

This is really just curiosity more than anything else...
Most of my friends cars (various Japanese and American makes) have a line going from the negative terminal on their battery to the chassis and engine block. My car (1987 560SEL) only goes to the chassis. So...what's the difference? Is there an advantage (or at least a reason) to doing both (engine and chassis) versus one? This is bothering me.
