Question New Z owner

So hi hows it going, I'm a new Z owner just got her to the house sunday. So check it out, I'm trying to decide if it's a good buy or not. 1985 Z N/A the engine thats in the car is bad, I have another engine thats being brought over to my place next sat, it has a new radiator I need to install, a new lower bracket I need to install on the front, I also need to install the front bumber. The only thing I need to get to replace myself is a new ignition switch, two new headlights rear left tail light, and a drivers seat. and steering wheel. I'm getting all of this for $1000.00 from a friend. I haven't bought it yet, but is it worth it? I mean on one hand I have a spare engine block to beef up, it's a Z they're hard to find where I live. On the other hand it's ALOT of work that has to go back into the thing to get it back on the road. Is it worth it?

It's always good to see another Z saved. Welcome.

I don't think I'm gonna keep it. theres just ALOT that needs to be done to it. I have to completely rebuild the steering collum it's going to be more work that I thought it would be.
