Cheers for the help!
Im trying to spend under 20K USD, and would PREFER a Super Sport over a 210 if possible. I think that the super sports without towers are less likely to be as thrashed as an early 210. Super sports seem to have a few extra plus points to me:
Ski locker (for ballast)
Better seating than early 210s
Simple engines (getting to know the GT40s really well after my current DD sport).
I will likely replace the ballast system of a 210 anyway (especially if its stock).
