It is the brilliant reinvention of inferior components that maintain some element of sanity to car collectors. Good for you. I remember the “shame” that was put upon me when I replaced the points in my ’36 Pierce, ’47 Cadillac, and ’58 Cadillac all on the same day with custom made Pertonix ignitions. Guess what: In ten years your faithful member has not hitch-hiked in one time with any one of these cars. To boot, each of them start faster, has more punch, and makes me feel a lot more secure on a Sunday ride.
