Thanks for the encouragement everyone, I absolutely agree on getting the title and squaring away all the legalities before touching this thing. The car is still in my neighbors driveway and will stay there until I have the paperwork worked out. I view this as a learning experience for me, when else will I get the chance? I have to start somewhere! I have patiently waited for over a decade to get to a point where I can tackle a project car again and have the resources to get it done. Mindset and project management go a long way. Right now my budget is focused on getting the right tools to make the project go easier, regardless of which car I end up with. I'll be sure to post more pics when I get the car in place, get it stripped, and start sandblasting.
