<VV> Fwd: Spyder/Corsa turbo -- fast & furious

Now you know why my LM coupe is my daily driver.  The only items on  this 
list that I would like are the EFI and distributorless ignition; both of  
which I can get if I want to spend a little money in the wrecking yard and  
reprogram the EFI (I prefer the early EFI which is analogue; I can convert that 
 to digital with a PIC and I have written a program for EFI which works as 
well  as the original on a Datsun, replacing the original unit.)

Well, Tony, there are some other factors as well. Today, we  have standard 
features on cars that weren't even available on the Corvair!  Power windows, 
power door locks, power mirrors, standard A/C power steering,  power 
brakes, fuel injection, air bags, ABS, 100,000 mile tuneup intervals,  
distributorless ignition, the list goes on and on! Also, cars today have a  MUCH longer 
projected lifespan, well over twice as long as back in the day,  meaning 
you don't need to buy a new car anywhere near as often. Remember, most  
Corvairs are LOOONG gone...
