before you buy one of those cars,spend some time driving one.If you liked the modern hondas and BMWs,then run away from the 60s American cars. They dont stop well,they handle poorly after being modified. Ive owned 4 chevy2s and a 65 Caliente.The ford was traded soon after I got it(made money,no choice) both cars have a nice style,,,,personal choice. A chevy2 can get lots of improved parts,most important being a better front end.They have front sump pans that are not favourable to drag racing. The lower control arms flex when cornering and the car is reluctant to turn if you drive aggressively in corners.If you have lots of money then all that can be changed.
you need to tell us more of your plans so we can shoot them down,,,,lol, JK. maybe we can help more
