    Do you have any friends that have knowledge of automobiles? Maybe they will give you some info. Can you take an automotives class at a local community college? Go out to the nearest dragstrip and walk around the pits and ask a few questions. Most drag racers will answer a few questions to help you out. Your post is pretty vague as to your knowledge level so it is hard to direct you in a particular direction.

    Start taking every nut and bolt off your hotrod, and dont stop for about two days. Thats the fun part, then put it back together. The more you do it, the more you will learn where those extra pieces went.

    Obtain a real good repair manual for the vehicle of your attentions.
    Don't forget to bag'n'tag ! Pics of disassembly sequence helps as well. I've been bending wrenches for 45+ years and still take pics of unfamiliar operations I undertake. LOVE modern digital cameras

    Set fire to your paycheck next week. That will prepare you mentally for the things to come.
