coilovers or air bags?

im getting close to ordering the front-end,(mustangII) and i think ive made up my mind on brand,
but i still cant decide if i want air bags or coil-overs
i plan on building a triangulated four link in the rear.
i like the idea of being able to dump it when i get where im going, but hows the handling from an autocross point of view?
i realize a 37 chevy isnt a curvette but im going to drive the heck out of this thing
and would like some input on the diff between air and coils from guys who have them

If your looking for a good ride, Air bags is the way to go.. Front and back..Not just on one end.. If your looking for performance type of ride.. NO bags.. If your building a cruiser.. Put the bags..Just my thinking..

I am going with bags as I do not wish to need to fuss with spring rates..i think when roll (anti sway) bars are installed the handling will be fine..
just my opinion
