Welcome aboard, Norm! 
Sounds like you have a great landlord. Wish we could all be so lucky.
As to your choice of trucks, the best advice I could give is buy
something thay YOU like, regardless of rarity, etc. You'll be the one 
restoring and driving it, so you're better off having something that you
like. Same thing goes for colour choices, type of restoration, ie rod or
restore, etc.  
The great thing about this list is the variety of opinions, and the fact
that the restorers and rodders get along so well. I hope you can find
all the help you need.
