If your going to keep your car for a while here is what I suggest.
Get rid of the 35amp alternator, buy yourself an 80amp alternator exchange from a sparky, and then buy an Odyessy battery. These battery are excellent, they are a gel pack, and can be mounted in any position. The initial cost of these batteries is what hits you. For what your after I would go for the 700amp battery. It will prolly set you back about $550-650. I cannot give these batteries enough praise, They have 700CCA's, are pretty much the same size as a normal 520CCA battery, and look pretty swank as well. Gold terminals, maintenance free as you could imagine and will certainly run everything you want to run in the car. But if you dont want to get the battery, up the alternator to a 80amp. The other thing is you may have to convert your system from external regulator to an internal one.
Nothing beats the sound of a V8
