I have never had a vehicle in the condition of my 73, so comes the question, where do I start. Know that proably sounds stupid to some but I never claimed to be brilliant! Mommy accused me of being ass backwards more than a few times. Anyhow, for those that are not familiar with my posts in 73 Marti Update my 73 needs engine work, body work, floor pans and what ever I may find. Do I pull the motor and tranny,repair and put back in and drive while working on the other items or put motor / tranny repairs on hold and get body, interior, etc done. Budgeting in progress with a starting balance of 5k, or is that unrealistic. I know everyone has their opinion but I know there are alot of you that have had to start in a worst position than I and your experiences interest me in the hopes of saving me money and time from possible dumb decisions.
