I. At the time, the II was just coming out, and I was
too cheap to pay the extra bux for it.

I can identify with that..... Like when I was offered a choice between
a polished AC compressor or the standard.... I went standard and save
the extra cash for the refrigerant to put through it.

Re: Points to Electronic conversion

Does anyone have any thoughts on Pertronix versus a full MSD setup
(box, coil, and distributor) in terms of performance? I know the MSD
costs a lot more.....

The MSD system is excellent. It will be accurate
to about 9K rpm, and create a strong accurate spark
under heavy boost and with nitrous. Now, if that's the
kind of engine you have, then you need to spend the big
bux on it.
However, I suspect none of that applies to you. So
switching to a billet distributor with a control box,
fancy coil, big wires, etc, will not change the
performance of your engine. You can always pick up a
few ponies with a better ignition curve, but there are
cheaper ways to accomplish this.
But it will make your wallet significantly lighter.
And we know that less weight is always better :)
