Yeah, I somewhat agree here with Chris.  I think the RBBs engine can be
helped very much.  I'm just trying to point out some differences between
the two cars.  They are both still Bs, but they are markedly different.  

If appearances are not important(and I seriously doubt it), then I would
personally opt for the simple chrome bumper car.  For example, the wiring
harness on my '78 is a behemoth compared to the sparse harness of the '65.  

Just some thoughts, and once again, I must reiterate, Brian, get the car
you want, and get the best you can afford.  

Don't pay any attention to individuals like me who like to ramble.  As a
long-time listmember, I can advise you that you will find about 75% of the
list content is pure bullshit.  You must learn to sift through the crap.

My capactiy on the list is usually technical of nature, since I can be
unbiased and factual.  The rest of the time I post(10% of the time), I post
simply to piss a few people off because they refuse to have a sense of humor:)

By the way, much of this post was in humor. If I pissed you off, too bad.

Take care
'78 B
'70 B
'65 B
'81 911 SC (Maybe???)
