I see visions of a turbo build with this car. How scary is that strut tower rust to those here who have dealt with rust issues on them before? 

I know you can buy the rear wheelwells new, which include the shock towers.  Just having a bunch of rust cut out of my 02, I can tell you it isn't a trivial job, but a good shop can do it no problem.  One issue would be the rest of the body and trunk floor NEAR the wheel well / shock tower.  If you'd have to replace a lot of that, then it is major bucks.  You can't weld to rusty metal.
