If the body is truely rustless, then it is a great car to make into an auto-x or track monster. I would suggest getting yourself this car and driving it for a while until you can't stand the motor any more and then drop in a 2.5i or 2.7e motor into the car. Actually the motor I would drop in would be a super-eta out of an '88. You can build one of these cars to be really really fast for relatively little cost as long as you are willing to get your hands dirty. This car will never be a collector's car so if you want a project to play with, go for it, but MAKE SURE IT HAS NO RUST!!!! These cars rust and when they do they aren't worth sh!t.
