New project??

I'm a constant craigslist shopper for projects of all sorts. Dirt bikes, four wheelers, snowmobiles, tractors- anything with an engine. I came across a 1986 5.0 hatch that has seen it's better days. Structurally wise- mint. Rust/rot wise- mint. It even runs pretty clean! It just needs paint, an ENTIRE interior. Needs a fresh suspension (bushings are original to the car. They're pretty bad) and an annual "tune up". What route should I go with this? All performance race car... Or another show/reliable car? I already own an '86 that is a reliable daily.

It's up for $800 OBRO. I do not see it as an $800 car. But for what it is & the fact that it's all original 45k miles engine with a lot of maintenance paperwork, I want it. Any opinions?

You can go either way... From what you said you could go race car or go restro mod. If it was me I'd probably use it as a daily, to putt around in.

If I had a garage to put it in and work on it, I'd buy it. If you already have a daily car, go for street legal race car.

My work allows me to use the shop Saturdays after 12 till Sunday at 9 pm as long as I lock the doors after i leave (understandable). Street legal race car particularly strikes me as a good idea. It's not all too expensive to build it that way either. It's expensive, don't get me wrong. But it could be worse.

Well with a decent engine in it and needing the stock suspension worked on I would aim for a auto cross and daily driver.
