      The nice thing about a carb is once it's tuned it works great. Even better thanks to the idle circuit you get some nice pops and bangs when engine braking.

      >three knob manual AC
      Hey now, the German and Korean brands still offer that in many cars' base trim levels.
      I swear they make it look as cheap and shitty as possible on purpose so that buyers are motivated to pick the next trim, the one without the embarrassing 1980s tumble dryer style control panel.

          That one doesn't look bad. Fits in, and has a temperature setting with automatic fan speed, which is enough convenience for me.
          What I find truly silly is that many cars these days feature several computer displays, probably dozens if not hundreds of automated control systems + sensors, more source code than a person could read in a lifetime, etc. And then the base model comes with a completely manual 3-knob AC that looks like it came from a 1980s car. Or a tumble dryer.
          Fiddling with that hot/cold knob can get pretty tedious if you live in a country where the weather changes so much that you can practically experience 3 or more climates in one week.

            Meh, my daily shitbox has old school three knobs and the weather here in Sweden can be pretty varied. I've had it this way in all cars I've had except the Volvo. To me it has just become second nature in the same way as driving a manual.

            I've driven several cars where the ACC overshoots from the setpoint anyways, so you still have to micromanage it.
            All Toyotas I've driven run the heat too hard in the winter and AC too hard in the summer.

            The odd thing is, my Volvo does it perfectly, and it's almost 30 years old. But it's basically the only car I've had that experience in.

            You'd think the Japanese would know how to design an ACC since they have very varied climate, but Japanese cars are the absolute worst in my experience, they only get the temperature right on tempered overcast days and frick up hard the rest of the time.
            Same thing about the cruise control, Toyotas can be downright scary in cruise, overshooting like 10kph or more when it gets a bit hilly. It's like they never learned how to do PID.

            Most people I know adjust the temperature on their ACC all the time, so I guess the answer is maybe lol.
            They think they bought a smart car that made their live easier, but they're still twiddling knobs, buttons and touch sensitive shit without even thinking about how shit it actually is.

            The ones in Audis and VWs are generally pretty good. They've got that autistic German precision, I guess.
            I've had to fiddle with a Toyota's AC before to stop it from just blasting hot or cold when the temp was already fine, though setting it to "Eco" mode seemed to calm it down a bit.

            my cressida's auto AC was surprisingly good. kinda interesting setup too, it had an in car sensor behind a little grille in the climate control panel, an ambient temp sensor in front of the hood latch, and a solar sensor in the corner of the dash, all to maintain constant temp.

            That sounds like how it's supposed to be done. I wonder how many cents per car some makers are saving by just half assing trivial shit like this.
            Basic sensors and microcontrollers cost almost nothing these days, although I suppose assembling, moisture-proofing and wiring would add something to that cost.
            Maybe it's just an organization / competence problem on some level.

      Holy shit that's a lot of radio hate, lol. You just gotta find a station you like. The only bad thing about radio is when they start broadcasting college sports. The radio is super useful for weather forecast and local news. Plus the price is right, free fiddy free.

        Here in Sweden we have a station called Star FM. It's basically as good as it gets, pretty comfy hosts that don't talk too much, only music from the 70s to the 90s. The only thing that takes away from the comfyness is the news and the commercials, but that's what the volume knob's for.

        I have a few, but even among those half the time they're playing ads. And not cool ads, really annoying ones. The 80s station ends up having ads about gay shit like iphone apps that really ruins my whole vibe and makes me ragequit the radio when I hear them, for example. The jazz station doesn't have ads but they have literal hours of donation begging which would be fine if they weren't in giant block segments. The only one that has little of either is the classical station but I'm only rarely in the mood for classical music.

          there are also public and non-profit radio stations. In my car I mainly listen to the local "community radio" non-profit station. There are a variety of radio programs depending on the day of week and time of day. Tune it at one time it's mexican music, another time it's jazz, or blues, or psychedelic rock. Sometimes it's weird world music from the middle east or European folk music or something. Other times it's talk radio about local issues. Very good station.

          Another one is a local station that started out as a college radio station but became a real station with a bigger broadcasting tower. Funded through a mix of donations and ads. They actually play good music, mainly "alternative rock" but actually a lot of indie stuff, not just the same shit on the mainstream alt-rock station.

          And then as of a couple years ago we finally got a Classical Radio station again, I often listen to that while cruising around.

          Other than that, there's the tried and true Classic Rock station, and we also have a talk radio station on FM that has Coast to Coast AM if you're driving around late at night and want better audio quality than what's on the AM station.

          Radio is critically underrated and if you swear off the entire medium you really are missing out

      Used to deal with vac wipers a lot.
      Tricks you can do-
      Install a modern vac reservoir. It'll cover most WOT/Low vac conditions.
      Install a mechanical fuel pump with a vacuum pump. (Used to be an option on cheaper cars, and standard on really nice ones or military/industrial equipment)
      And (If they still exist) install an electric vacuum booster pump. I used to have to do this on a lot of older pickups, especially Dodge WC's.
