Nostalgic for the days when cars had carburetors but most of us hadn't been born yet?  :)

As much as I love carburetors (and still own cars that have them!) they're simple not as good as modern fuel injection.

Ig, we had been born, and something about the smell brings me back to sitting "on the hump" in my dad's caddy.

Just to doublecheck myself, fuel injected cars weren't a thing until the 80's

First gasoline mechanical fuel injection was introduced in 1952.

I thought fuel injected was invented in the 1940s, but not used in automobiles until the 1980s?

Actually much, much earlier in diesels.

how many of us/our parents drove diesel cars?

My father owned a 1979 Mercedes-Benz 300D, which he bought used in 1983. If we're talking about nostalgia for the way a car smelled when it was running ... those had a bouquet all their own :)

true but even mercedes-benz was selling carbureted cars as a lower trim level until the 80s. for example the 190/190E - the E in 190E stood for the german for fuel-injection (whatever that is)

I had a diesel beetle for 12 years. Not a bad car, honestly. Got rid of it when it started to nickle-n-dime me, as is inevitable.

The Batmobile, Starsky and Hutch's Ford Torino, the General Lee along with several other TV cars burned when the truck carrying them caught fire.

The fish says it's "Einspritzdüse"

fleeb, how did you find the availability of diesel in the US when you owned the Beetle?  Was it a nuisance to find or was it readily available?
