  1. A couple of minor tweaks to account for a differences in taste and this could be some major fun, depending on the amount of tune been given to an otherwise anemic (smog burdened)305.

  2. My choice of a Corvair or a 911 with a V8 in the back seat for $15K or $12k?
    It's like Christmas in ... oh never mind.

    1. Easy choice, this Corvair has a way better build quality. The Porsche is only worth it if you plan to remove all the hack jobs and even then probably not worth the time or money yet to do it right.
