Unfortunately the gutted cars tend to have been really seriously beaten upon, and there is frequently a lot more wrong with them than is obvious at first. Some of that is from them being beaten on ("yo yo yo baby, it's a drag racer, I'ma take you at the stoplight!") and some of it is from seriously "questionable" mods (like 500 lbs of ill-fitting fiberglass body kit).

Better to start with a clean car if you have that option. (Can be a big "if"!)
