I guess that everyone has there own opinion
I think research in the beginning is the key
You should find a model and manufacture that you like, be familiar with the market rate for that car, see how hard it is to get parts (120 vs twin six), and buy the best one that is available for the price.
All the time I see nice cars going for what a good strip and paint would cost
In the end, it a hobby, if you go into it thinking your going to make money, you will be surprised. A boat or an RV is a hobby. You would probably do better getting a part time job flipping burgers
With that said, it a great feeling when somebody walks over at the local Dairy Queen, and say you have a great looking car
Just my take

Did a Motorcycle trip just before the covid thing hit. took a month, did the coast of both islands. Real pretty country, people are nice too.

Food is like England, fish and chips on every menu.
Take a bottle of catsup, hot sauce and your favorite steak sauce
There pretty much, is a Brewery in every town and the beer has more of a kick to it then wine. 2 pints and you are hammered

Good luck you are going to like it
If the food was better and the plane ride wasn't as long I'd go back

Dido on the head Gasket, my 120 was a problem till we did a valve job and a lot of torqueing the head
My guy that did the valve job show me where the leak was between the cooling channels and exhaust. Ran good but when it was hot out it pushed the needle up also when I parked it after a drive, Temp would climb and sometimes it would burp out coolant
Good luck

I am good white the optima, but it does not like to sit for long period of time with out charging, I run mine at lest 1 a month and actually more, or keep a maintainer on it
Only problem I had was when I had the car painted, sat for a year, had to replace a 4 year old battery
Good luck with it

Where did you get the wheel cylinders?
Had a problem with cheapo Chinese reproduction when I did mine
All parts are not the same, there is a reason that some part are cheaper.

Dido, on moving blankets. Cut in half, get so gal to sew a binder on the cut side, you got a washable fender cover. The 2" binder clips at Staples are cheap and seem to work well as well.
