In my endless search for the perfect winter beater/ice racer/rally vehicle, I have two potential candidates after losing out on a nice 2.5TS

Both are about 1000 dollars, both have almost 200k on the odometers and both are outback sports. The bugeye has damage and in general just appears to be in worse condition but it has an EJ25 which is more powerful than the (most likely) EJ22 in the GF8. I have yet to drive either but I shall be doing so in the near future. I need some advice on which car you think looks best and what you would do. I'm leaning towards bug eye because newer and maybe better looking, but then again GF8 is a classic and probably lighter/more reliable.
