If I learned anything from the entire PE coaching staff of my high school, it is that everything is a competition. There is no such thing as fun sport and everything ends in a collection of losers and one winner. Today we’ve got a simple face-off for you — pick the pile of parts that you’d rather restore from these two abandoned classics.
