What is wrong with a carb?? As long as they are properly tuned, they are great and much cheaper to work on. I myself do prefer fuel injection, but I still like the simplicity of a carb'd vehicle.... only NEED a couple of wires for the dist. and alternator to run. not like todays vehicles that you pretty much need to take electrical engineering classes to figure out.
The best part of them is the ease of diagnosis for troubles, not running?? check for spark, then fuel.... no need to get out a multimeter or scantool and spend hours searching for an intermitent bad sensor problem.
