Have to agree.. You'd be sailing 'closer to the wind' than I did (and I wish I'd maybe spent a bit more getting a more solid car to start with).

I think that thing would make a great 'donor car' but little else. Honestly, it looks like you're going to have to rebuild just about everything. You're going to have to assume that nothing works..

Take, for example, the engine. If you rebuild it yourself, it'll cost you about 3,500 (sorry, don't know what that is in $) ; if you get somebody who knows what they're doing to rebuild the engine, it'll cost you 10,000. If the gearbox needs a complete rebuild, that'll cost 2,500.. The front disc brakes, 600.

Honestly, buy a better car and THEN tune it to 500RWHP - it'll be cheaper (and quicker to do)
