Default Project ideas.

Me and my buddy are really into cars ofcourse i have been since i was like 2 cars and racing runs through my blood...but we are both 16 and we are lookin for any old car...car i say not gen 1 or gen2 rangers haha, that we can build up. we primarily want to either get a shell or drop in a v8 350 302 or whatever you get it...mygrandfather owns a monte carlo still runnin with the 350 automatic but what do you guys think we should do?? What cars would you suggest the only way we would go v6 is if it was a camaro or somethin like that...or we would look into an nice old rotary rx7 something like that....obviously the mods on a v6 or endless...but also for the v8 we are more limited on mods. this is a combined project so combined $$$ i think thats the way to go.....so. if not the monte carlo what cars would yall suggest ?what engines? what years? and what mods?

Keep in mind that many times a project like this can cause tensions between your friend and yourself. Friend thinks you stole something, or did something wrong, differing opinions on how the car should look, etc. Just keep that in mind before you jump into this.
