Goin to a junkyard

Welps I'm goin to a junkyard tommoree and I'll be lookin for a older car to pick up and save from the yard. I will do the interior and such and my friend will do the body work and maybe donw the road some engine work will be done, but anyway I was lookin for some advice on what would be a good fixer upper that actually has potential to be decently fast and look nice.

Man...what an open ended question. Hell I didn't think there were any old cars in junk yards anymore. Way back when, my buddies and I used to cruise the "old folks neighborhoods" and look for a gem sitting in tall grass...I remember seeing a cool old Superbee, a Rambler, many a Mustang, Malibu's...etc. But that was 20 years ago. I'm pretty partial to a 78-82 Malibu 2dr. V8.
Good luck...sounds like a good time to me.
