<VV> To ignite or not To Ignite

For normal, occasional street driving of an otherwise stock engine/ignition,
I have found Pertronix to be not worth the trouble. Used one for several
years, now back to points and loving it.

I finally have enough money together to make some necessary
repairs/upgrades....including a new distributor.  My question is this:
should I upgrade to an Ignitor 1?  Underground has a package where it
isn't that much more ($44) to get the ignitor with a rebuilt
distributor...is it worth it?  What is your experience?  I drive a '65
Corsa Vert 140/4 327.  This is not a concours car.  My current points
have given me no trouble, but I haven't driven them long and hard
yet...Thanks for the input (I will post the data when I get responses).
