I have a carbureted car with a points and condenser ignition as a daily driver. Yes, the points need to be set occasionally. At most every 2 years. I have let them go a lot longer. And carbureted cars, while previously almost completely trouble free, have some issues now in the days of ethanol fuel. I’ve had to clean mine twice in 3 years. It took about an hour. But I’m 59, a mechanic, and grew up working on these older cars, carburetors in particular. It still amazes me how such a simple device can do a better job than the several times more complicated (and expensive) EFI systems. Or maybe I should look at it the other way around, at how they have taken such a simple, basic, inexpensive, and proven method of providing an engine with the correct air/fuel mixture, and made it 10 times more complicated than it needs to be. I put 128,000 miles on a bought new motorcycle over 16 years, and never had the carburetors off.
I don’t buy cars as an investment, and don’t care much for those who do.Those are not true car people, they are speculators. Money is all they really care about. I bought a 1970 Challenger because it was my first car back in 1975. I have a 1976 Corvette because I fell in love with them, believe it or not, from watching the TV series “The Magician” I had to have a white one. I would only buy cars that have personal meaning to me. And no car with a computer means anything to me.
