To add to this list, the following costs will be incurred:
* Car alarm with remote start.
* Cylinder head valve job.
* Rear differential seal and fresh fluid.
* POR-15 for painting over rust on undercarriage.
* Arm rest pads if I can't recover the existing ones by myself.
* Air conditioning service.
* New wiring harness (someday)

Now, for the TODO list:

* Straighten out driver's side front bumper.
* Sand/wire brush undercarriage (to prep for POR application).
* Apply POR to undercarriage.
* Tighten up misc bolts/screws under car.
* Spray and blow silicone lube into all cable and cord paths.
* Epoxy or weld A/C control knob under dash that is broken.
* Replace weatherstripping on doors and trunk.
* Replace carpet.
* Replace/repair front seat springs.
* Recover front and rear seats.

* Replace oil and filter (and main seal if it is, indeed leaking).
* Remove intake and cylinder heads and have valves seats serviced (replace valve guides/lifters/rods/rockers if needed). Reinstall.
* Replace tranny fluid.
* Replace rear diff seal and fluid.
* Replace rusty exhaust with new dual exhaust.
* Learn how to tune a carburetor and do so or have somebody who knows what they're doing do it.
* Convert distributor to electronic ignition

* Install new bigger sway bar to stop it from driving like a boat
* Replace brake fluid.
* Replace pads/rotors if needed

* Install car alarm
* Clean the *hell* out of it.

Yes, I am a list-maker. I often make long pretty lists and print them out only to watch them get buried in clutter and eventually discarded unread. However, if ever I'm at a loss for the next thing to do, it's very handy to have a todo list sitting around to address.
