Believe me, I agree completely.  It does have an early Bosch ignitor
box, but it also has those fancy ceramic resistors.  Someone yanked
the points and added a Lumenition electronic eye in place of the
points.   I've tried to go back to points, but no one sells the
condensor anymore.

The urq is way more complicated and I seem to be able to keep it
running, even if it starts like total crap in cold weather.
