Congratulations on you purchase.

One thing that I would recommend, is that you check oil consumption before you bring it in. Check to see how much oil you need to put back in to bring it to its previous level. My thinking is that since the valve covers are going to be off anyway, might as well take care of the valve seals. (the seals themselves are cheap - its the labor of getting everything out of the way, that isnt)

Eyeball the P/S gearbox for leaks. A leaking box will deteriorate one of the subframe mounts.

Check out your lower ball joints..see if they have been replaced. Tie rod ends will be next to go, after the ball joints. After that, it will be the upper balljoint/control arm parts.

You will have a good time with this car. The backseat has enough room for a threesome.
