To me, old is either if it carburated, or you have to go to specialty classic junkyards for parts, because none of the usual pick n pulls and the like go back that far. I consider my ‘02 Vette to be pretty new, my ‘94 Town Car to be getting up there, but not quite “old” and my ‘73 Dart is definitely old.
I’ve seen the car in Rochester NY so I assume thats where he’s from so maybe someone up there might run into it.
I used to. Hot air rework station to reflow the GPU, then I replaced the X-Clamps with bolts. I still have one that works okay 6 years later, so I’d say it works pretty well.
I can fit my 5 piece in my C5 Vette, provided I put the kick drum in my passenger seat.
Eh, I did a summer with no air in my Dart, and my hair was down to my mid back. It isn’t that bad on some cars. The problem is some cars have terrible airflow with the windows down, and that can be a problem.
I daily a C5. I’m just about to hit 90k. It has been in the family since it had 2000 miles in 2002. The only real issue it ever had was the steering column lock.
I am still in high school, and I am the guy wearing a leather jacket cranking AC/DC in a Vette...
Pull the tire off, and run over the edge with another car to break the bead. Pull a new stem through.
As I learned daily driving an $800 Dodge Dart for a year, always leave yourself an out. Try to always have 2 options to avoid the cars around should one of them do something stupid. That, and maintain a nice following distance.

Best possible is over 30. My average around town is 22. It isn’t an average of 30, but it is pretty damn good.
To be fair, my grandpa used to hand wash his cars in the winter when he lived in Pittsford.
Dump in a bottle of Bars. That should take care of the cylinder head.
