welcome to the club!
your rust doesn't sound too serious, but check everywhere. i mean the radiator support, inside the fenders, on the subframes and trailing arms, on the firewall (sometime the drain tubes disappear on these cars and water will seep behind the firewall insulation in the engine compartment), floorpans, etc. rust is your biggest enemy on these cars, especially on the snowy east coast.
the engines are cake to work on, but the parts can be pretty expensive. get a couple of manuals (preferably the factory shop manual)and a good set of tools and there isn't much you won't be able to do.
feel free to e-mail me if you have any other questions.
and good luck!
