Need a GM Guy opinion

1996 Firebird Formula ... Project Car

Interior great condition, Exterior great condition except for a small dent in rear.
LT1 Engine, with 109k miles.

Needs an alternator and head gasket. Asking price: $1,500.

Would you jump on this? Was the LT1 a decent engine? If that is all that is wrong with it, would this be a good buy? Maybe make it a track machine?

OPINIONS

This will only set me back 2 months on getting my cobra.

Re: Need a GM Guy opinion

Swapping the head gasket on those cars is a serious pain in the ***. The LT1 isn't a particularly spectacular motor, either. Is it worth $1,500? Probably. Would I buy it? Probably not.

Buy it....if for nothing else, for my pure entertainment.

The level of ragging that will ensue, and the amount of *****ing you will hear from katie about how uncomfortable the passenger seat is along with the fact that her leg is on fire from the cat being right under her leg, it will surely keep me entertained for hours on end every day.
