Rust and such is number 1 in my book too. Don't be blinded by thoughts of putting a cool motor in until you've taken the time to understand what body work and other efforts are going to be put into it. I started with a pretty clean car and have already dropped nearly $3000 in it. I've been priming, fixing rust, replacing rubber and suspension parts. And then there is paint. So it goes...that giant sucking sound. But I'm enjoying the work and the bragging rights.
