A little bit of both
Bought the most I could afford in decent shape body-wise along with running drive-train with the intention of upgrading when time and $$ allowed.
After driving a unmolested C code with slushbox for 5 years, it was time for upgrading. After a lot of research etc..... the original 289 was rebuilt to 325+ HP, the C4 replaced with a 4spd toploader, rear-end replaced and suspension upgraded.
Now, IMO, it's to the point where it's just a blast to take out and enjoy.
So yes, for me anyway, initially bought but enjoyably built to my vision.
