decisions, decisions ??

Hello all!
Got lucky yesterday and acquired my donner car from our local insurance auction. 81' 911SC. After reading your posts, I thought this was the best move for my 66' 911, but now that I have the 81' it's very tempting to repair the damage and drive it. With 108k, other than the door, fender, and rear quarter, the car is in very good condition, and it's hard to overlook all the creature comforts that aren't in the 66'. AC, sunroof, great styling, etc.
Now my whole thought process has been corrupted. The 66' is in terrific shape. With 77K mi. the body and chassis are very nice. Starting to re-think repairs to the 2.0 and 901. It just seems like a shame to dismantle such a pretty car.
Can anyone advise me on the 2.0? Is it realistic to try and rebuild the 2.0 with some power improvements? The current motor is not an S, and after driving the SC, 130hp is going to be disappointing. Can the 2.0 be reasonably improved? How? Thank you in advance!
ps I notice that the photo didn't come-out. What am I doing wrong?

Fix 'em both. The SC would be a great daily driver so you can save the '67 for classic driving on the weekends. Besides, you'll need the tail on the SC to strap on your long boards on trips to your Hawaii beaches.

Don, I think you are right. At the moment the wife thinks this was the plan all along, but fortunately she's rather taken by the styling on the SC.
