Re: Where/How To Begin

If I were you I would look for a better project. I have found it is way cheaper and easier to start with a good truck/suburban than start repairing a rough one. It all depends on your skill level though. If you are a good body guy and/or welder perhaps you can fix up a rough one and even enjoy it.

I used to buy anything and fix it up, but now since I am getting older (and wiser) I make sure to buy something I can drive home. My wife and I are into cars, and have bought many rollers or parts cars over the years, but now we have the "must drive home" rule. No rust buckets and no cars missing too many parts.
You save a ton of money and time.

She just bought a 72 Blazer and it needs a lot of work, but it is all there and drivable.
