I'm old and I love carbs, but what's the appeal of old carbs -vs- new fuel injection?

I'm old and love carbs as well. All of my cars are carbed except my TII RX-7. I'm not very good at tuning them. I still need some help with that. I don't know really. I figured most people liked fuel injection better.

Almost finished. Have to shorten accelerator torsion arm to fit the linkage. Then a buddy of mine that is going to get them tuned sweet.

I got a repop competition steering wheel and Japanese style hood emblem.

I also ordered my T3 coilovers, Fujitsubo exhaust, strut tower braces and Watanabe R's.

I'll post some pics of the stuff when it gets here and gets installed. The wheels take 4 months to arrive.

Got a few more of my parts in. The Cusco strut tower braces and the Fujitsubo stainless exhaust. I've got a few more things ordered that will be here eventually. Then I can finally get started with the installation process.

I'll post some more when the other parts get here.

My T3 coil overs arrived today. I got the MSA sway bar kit a few weeks ago. We're going to start the installation when the heat and humidity ease off a bit. A lot of work to do in the coming weeks. Once the wheels arrive I'll order some tires.

I finally was able to get a Japanese L6 cover. I'm stoked and I really like these. It's going to get painted but I wanted to go ahead and add it to the thread.

I'll still take another one if reasonably priced or I have parts to trade.

Got the cover finished and ready to go on the car. It looks good and has some character I couldn't sand off of it. I'd like to have another one.

Looks fantastic. I love the wrinkle black and brushed metal look. Hard to beat for original appearance plus a touch of fancy.

Thanks for the likes and comments! Much appreciated.

I got my Watanabe R's, lug nuts and valve stems. I haven't gotten tires yet and I'm going to wait until I'm ready to install the wheels before buying them.

I also installed a new fuel pump. The previous new one didn't work.

Every time I've had these on a car, everyone asks if it's some kind of Star Wars thing...   ^_^
