  1. A low balance American Express card with a high credit limit to start
  2. A good mechanical ability
  3. A sigificant other that wont miss you
  4. Patience to read endless threads of information
  5. A solid heating system to keep warm for those long winter Ma nights in the garage (if you're lucky enough to have one!)
Good Luck and welcome!

thanks Bill

I do just about all of my own work on bikes,cars, and other toys... have a heater, and an empty bay in my man-town.

Do the 90 s rust like the 110s seem to? Tough to find rust free cars in new england. I am patient and will wait for a nice one locally or may even look out west for one. I don't mind working on the truck but a solid body and chassis is my #1 criteria
