I agree whole heartedly with Larry about computerized fuel injection and ignition. A properly maintained vehicle with these systems will ruitinely go trouble-free for well over 100k miles. Add up the parts and time you'd have spent tinkering with points and carberator, and it makes a pretty good argument for the newer systems. And when something does break, you replace it. Granted, the parts are expensive. But they're easy to swap out, and hey, you're good for another 100k-150k of trouble-free (well, maybe) driving.

Just my 2-cents. (arguably worth that)
