I am also going to check out a nice Kelmark GT that is VW based. The nice thing is that I have a nice 69 Pan that is more or less ready to go and its the same year as the body. This pan has new pan halves in and Ghia disc brakes. I have nice rims that would look great. I'd leave it stock height for now. It would look killer if it was lowered.
Once again I am hunting for a killer project. Light weight and fun and fully enclosed. No open top. Much better for here.
