I want an older car. No computer in the engine. No built in
spyware onstar. Manual transmission. But they haven't made cars like that since 1990. So the question is, to what degree will I be able to replace parts on an old car and keep it running?
For example, if I buy a car from 1990 with 100,000 miles on it, what is stopping me from essentially doing a full rebuild (replacing motor, transmission, drivetrain) and having what amounts to a new car, that will last for a decade, without all the modern post-patriot act amenities. From the estimates I've seen a full rebuild is even less than what a modern new car costs anyway.
