You'll never be able to please everyone. I like old stuff, be it cars or tech, not just because of nostalgia, but because I don't see them as consumerist waste which is to be simply thrown away after a while. Mostly because they're simpler, and not much can go wrong on simple things. Hence the reason I only drive old pre-90's cars, not just because I'm poor, I could afford a 5-10 year old car no problem, but also because carburetors are inherently simpler, and I neither drive much nor do I have a gas hog vehicle, so fuel efficiency isn't an issue, and I prefer learning how things work, which is much simpler on completely analog tech, and it's also easier to repair.

A well-maintained carburetor (high-quality gas, properly installed air filter, no tampering or abuse) will last virtually forever, save perhaps some torn vacuum diaphragm that may need replacing. I did carefully rebuild mine myself ten years ago but it was running OK before then despite the abuse in its earlier life.
