Great! Glad you here! Start with the things that HAVE to work to drive it; put off things like A/C and interior for now. Have a terrible oil leak? fix it. backfires when you let off the gas? fix it. Rear power door lock solenoids don't work? ignore them for now.
Just make sure you can always drive it. That way you will always be able to enjoy it and if you have to bail on it, you won't lose a ton of money. If you tear it apart with grand aspirations, it will turn into a burdensome pile of parts that is not worth anything.
