Given that these cars are 150pts and decent fuel tank they actually have quite a lot potential. 

If you know how to assemble engines you can get about 200whp without much fuss (huge cam, home polish, megasqurt/carbs, header. There are plenty of 300whp+ cars around from the L28). Lots of suspension options.
