    It all depends on what you plan on doing with the car. If you just want to install simple parts then a Craftsman set will probaly do you fine. I'd also suggest a small rubber mallet, ask any mechinic and they'll explain why.

    Torque bar is also a great suggestion, but while you are at the parts store be sure to pick up some PB Blaster or Gibbs penetrating lubicants for easier bolt removale.

    After you get all that crap be sure to get a decent wrench set. Craftsman is probaly the easiest and one of the cheaper brands to obtain. If you get in with a shop I'm sure they will direct you to who they get tools from (Snap On, Matco, ETC). They are a bit more expensive but sometimes they have unique tools that you can find other places. Be sure to haggle with those rolling highway robbers because often times they have a HUGE mark up.

    Good luck and if you are really planning on getting down and dirty make sure you get a Ohm reader and a air compressor.

    Thanks again. All of your comments were exactly what I was looking for.

    I went and scoped out some Craftsman tool sets. There seems to be several on sale that appear to be a decent base for sockets and wrenches. There were a few other smaller things that I want to pick up (as per suggested here), too. I think I'll have the base I wanted once I pick these things up (by the end of the week). My apartment has a garage, so I think this will work out nicely for my hands-on time. I plan on taking things slowly, and I definitely plan on familiarizing myself sufficiently before I try to do anythin, but I want to get in there.

    The sad part...I still don't have my car. Now, I was told there was a hold up, and they're trying to figure out why. :P

    I think I've read over that website ( a thousand times trying to satiate myself. I tried doing it with that mechanics guide but I feel a little overwhelmed without a car in front of me to examine.

    ...impatiently waiting...
