Like others have said, it pretty much depends on what you are looking for. I disagree that a 3,0 car won't be a good driver. The brakes are the biggest factor in my opinion but the early brakes can be made to work well with the right pads. They will never be the monster brakes that the '78-> cars have.

I have a both a '76 (which for all intents and purposes is the same as a '77) and an '86 (which is very similar to a '79). Very different driving experience. The '76 seems lots lighter and has more of a raw feel. The '86 is technically superior but feels like a heavier, more refined car. I love them both for different reasons. Given the chance, drive both of the cars you are looking at and see what appeals to you. You don't go into much detail as to condition, colors, price, etc. but that too would be a factor in choosing. -John
