Old school carb means no proprietary parts that can be made NLA like what happens with engine ECMs and ignition modules. It’s all the in the aftermarket with carbs no matter what your preference is due to the huge collectible car and hot rod aftermarket. Quadrajet, Holley or Edelbrock take your choice. Yes MPI runs better than carbs when cold but when they act up repairs are more complex and expensive. $50 + 2hrs of my time rebuilds the 4 bbl Quadrajet and mechanical fuel pumps last 30 years and can be replaced for less than 100 bucks. To each their own....
