The rear E-brake set-up is more desirable that the front system because you can effectively lock the front wheels using the gears. I found the pre-1988 front system to create a small PITA when working on the car because I needed to chock the rear wheels when jacking the car up. With the later E-brake that's one less thing to worry about, but it is still a good practice to chock the wheels. The other downside to the early brake calipers is the need to have a special tool to rotate the piston in when fitting new pads. The tool is relatively easy to come by and not expensive (~$30 or less.
