    I need some help here. I currently own 3 X 1-9's. 2 '79s (one is a parts car) and a '76. I need to hear from as many people as possible.

    My dillemma is, I am awaiting an Uno Turbo motor that should be arriving at the beginning of October. I'm going to put it in one of the cars, but I can't decide which one. My original plan was to put it in the '76 and keep the '79 stock. I plan on totally stripping both cars and putting on new paint. If I put the Uno in the '79, I was planning on putting the 1500/5 spd into the '76.

    So, should I keep the '79 stock and hop up the '76 or should I just change both cars and not worry about "stock"?

    Thanx in advance,
    Greg Barron<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Verdana, Tahoma, Arial]<!-- google_ad_section_start -->I searched for almost 2 years for a straight and (mostly) rust-free car for my project. In the process, I bought 6 Xs, sold 1, gave one to Tony N. and junked a very rusty one. Use the best condition car and then see what you have left.

    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Verdana, Tahoma, Arial]<!-- google_ad_section_start -->In either case... yur gonna modify the '76 with parts from the '79 and the turbo motor would need to go somewhere.

    You have a 3 choices as I see it.

    1. A stock '79 and a modified '76.

    2. Two modified cars

    3. Or sell them all.

    My personal preference is PURE stock when ya got all the CORRECT parts... and there you should have with '79 parts car for the '79. So build the '79 STOCK!

    As for the '76... modify the hell out of it... ditch the bumpers and throw in the turbo motor. It starts out lighter too. Bumperless and a Dallara kit would be really HOT!
