Saloon

Now that I have your attention, looking into the possibility of buying
an older MK* for fun and restoration. My single kitty needs an older
roommate. Just looking for a project to play with. Not anything as
expensive as a 140 or so but something classic. Where is the first
place to start in the education department? Books, mags, etc.
Located in North Texas. Thanks
