The big question is... do you have a space to store a roller?

If so... be patient, shop, and find a good used coupe with a motor. Running or not. With the known intent of doing the full rebuild REGARDLESS.

I bought my whole car for 5600.00. Realistically I could have rebuilt the motor stock, and put it in and had a nice car. My intentions were to make an RSR though...

I too have a Targa. The SC is a full back date project and the motor is now ready to start reassembly (parts to arrive soon) I;m shooting for a Dec. build deadline.

Anyway, I think you should do the whole car of you can. You'll be better off in the long run... Buying an unknown roller can be VERY $$$$ especially since most "decent" ones go for around 5000.00. And usually these aren't "complete" no trans etc... Don't forget that little issue...
