Personally, id swap whatever you can from the st to the svt and make the st your beater car... Comp orange zx5 isnt exactly something you come across much now a days.. Looks good though

St drives a lot better than Svt, smoother ride, and more powerfull too. Orange Svt has just the bumpers and being orange. I bet my st is almost second quicker to 1/4mile right now in current shape and form. Svt has 127k miles and at has 86k miles. St also worth $2-3k more too.

Svt just has rarity factor, curious though how many st grey ones were made that year. St was also made 3 months after the Svt

Do whatever you want with your cars. It's not like either of them are going to instantly die or fall apart the first time they hit the snow. I'm sure you'll take good care of the Svt and it will come out again as good if not better than when it went into the winter months.

Nice find BTW.

thanks, it does need some mjor tlc from previous owner. brakes all around, clutch/flywheel and timing belt. then maybe small suspension stuff? had fun driving it tonight around the corners. im wondering if cat is getting clogged too? if it is il replace it with orp, have hfc laying around so il get that welded in for free.
