Camaro, I served with Corvette. I knew Corvette. Corvette was a friend of mine. Camaro, you're no Corvette.

True enough. When it comes down to it, I guess there's no substitute for personal preference.

There are several factors in play here.
What is the car being used for? Racing? Street driving/cruising? Showing? etc.
There are several schools of thought in the racing world on build v. buy.
Pros and cons to both.
Build: Pros- you know the car is solid, it's custom for you, you may already own it.
Cons- Usually costs more, more time involved, more shakedown time
Buy: Pros- Cheaper, quicker Cons- Sometimes fall apart w/o notice, less personal interest, not custom to your desires.
