This is first and foremost! Then as for keeping it as a daily driver...upgrade the suspension (read past posts on this) it doesn't take a lot of money and is fairly easy to do. It can make it go from handing like a boat to...well not quite like a Vette...but a whole lot better. Installing used F41 sway bars (front and rear) and jounce bars is a big improvement...also a good set of shocks all around. Welcome to ECC...now get busy and read all the great info on this site... have fun, just don't bite off more than you can chew...at least financially anyways...getting fancy costs money...something like a 450hp smallblock could be considered fancy. After addressing any safety issues work on handling and appearance.As stated above, make it is safe (brakes, tires ,steering andsuspension) and reliable if its your only form of transpo.
