Photography Question

Hi TQC!
I have recently gotten back into film photography, and my parents have offered to let me use one of their old 35mm SLR cameras. I am pretty much a beginner in terms of using manual cameras, but I have a couple photo-geek friends who are willing to teach me all about metering and such.

-My mum has a Canon AV-1 with a 50mm lens and a telephoto lens.
-My dad has a Nikon FE-2 with a 50mm lens. It may be in slightly better condition, having been fully cleaned since last use, but nothing too noticeable (they both supposedly work just fine).

Are they pretty equivalent cameras, or is one clearly superior? Which one would you choose?
