I contemplated about when I was going to decide to actually start ordering parts for mine. I added up some prices, shuddered, and decided to wait a couple more days, since my b-day is coming up soon, hopefully the wife won't freak out too much about the bill.
Just to get it moving again would take 4 new tires, 4 new shocks, a total brake job, new steering column, tune-up, fix the intake manifold leak in the back of the engine(which of course means installing the Edelbrock 4-bbl and carb i have sitting on a shelf, and ordering a new cam, lifters, and pushrods), a new battery tray and get my driveshaft redone with a CV or double cardan joint (or whatever it is that I forgot the name of). Then come the little things, like a replacement top, steering wheel, seats and belts, etc..
I did hook up the battery again just to start it up and check some header temperatures though.
The saga continues, in perpetuity...
