I remember one of the first things I sued to do to my cars was to put on a "free low" exhaust and change the steering wheel to one of those small chubby ones. Next up was a pair of Webers, CD ignition and a new camshaft. Who does these things today?

Much of the same happens today except we have fuel injected vehicles so no webers and tuning is all done via software and ECU flashing.

They have no idea what you are talking about. I am not surprised there are few "pocket rockets" made anymore.

How many hipsters have changed their own oil?
