rwd caprices are near indestructible for things like that, throw some wood in the springs, like spring rubbers in nascar, to tighten up the suspension and goto town.

You need to avoid the obstacles when racing. As for the radiator. Pick up one of those small MAP torches. They really don't cost that much, and you will get a lot of use out of it. Then solder the leak shut. If it'* inside the vanes, seeing this is just a race car. Cut away the vanes, as few as possible, pinch off the core with the leak, and solder it shut.
