Newbie says Hello

Hi people,

Had my '72 Eldorado now well over 30 years.
Always thought it would just die.
But it just never did want to die.
In fact, it runs just great.
I finally took a liking to it, seeing how it's so easy to have fixed,
how easy parts are available, how few parts it really needs,
when other cars on the block die out every few years.
I just decided to upgrade to electronic ignition.
I hope I'll be able to follow the instructions when the thing arrives.
Got a coil to go with it.
The points do go bad rather quickly and this might save me on
points - as well as some gas, I hope.

Cars are what made this country great - gas guzzlers included!
And cars are what ought to keep it being great,
if we can just keep lefty naysayers biting the dust.

Say 123pugsy, I just posted a thread elsewhere
about electronic ignition, and uploaded a picture,
yet I haven't seen it anywhere.

OK pugsy, I uploaded a picture,
as seen in that thread; I thought that
picture would become my icon, but meanwhile
I realized its a choice of standard pics.
