points (old school) vs. HEI (new school)
I just bought a 66 GTO Tripower, factory A/C, power brakes, steering, etc. I am working through the engine/ exhaust issues to bring it back to a more original look, better running vehicle. I plan on driving it at least weekly. One question- go old school (which I am) with points, etc. or change to a more modern ignition system (which I drive everyday in my truck)? I don't want visible changes under the hood, but more reliable, and less maintenance concerns are on the HEI's side. I understand I can get an HEI system that should pretty much drop in as a replacement for the current distributor. Any expert opinions out there?
