Personally, I am more interested in function over form. All show and no go doesn't cut it, in my book. Cars are meant to be driven.
Rally that sucka!

For a rally car, I would go with swapping in a turbo motor. Find a good-running turbo car that has been in a wreck and swap the motor and all the electronics. Then you can start making some power.

Lift it, put a good engine in it, and run it around like nobody's business.

Nothing like seeing a older car that looks like it just rolled off the assembly line. I respect folks who take care of things over time. That's what we all have fascinations with car museums.
All the cars die early around here because of the salt. My old GL used to get me a complement every week or so by total strangers. Too bad it had cancer on the bottom side:boohoo:
Having said all that,
For a show car you need the right car to start with. If the car is not fit for restoration, why make it a money pit?
You may have more fun carving it up and playing with it.
When "Little Roo" came through SLC it turned 100% of the heads!
MY .02 about YOUR decision.
82 Hatch, well it stated out that way....
01 Forester, still is a Forester.....

As said in previous post, you can't go wrong with a rally car, you will have a lot of fun going to the local rallycross races or just tooling around. This car makes a pretty good platform for one, not a lot of after market stuff but there is some things available and some gheto stuff you can do.
Is you car a turbo or fuel injected?
