Before you start "throwing parts at it", step back, do some reading, and look at some of the build threads here. For starters, from a performance standpoint, the automatic transmission is going to hold you back.
Not sure how much you know about the cars history, so would consider maintenance items up front to learn about the car, and are often avenues to update failing components (suspension, brakes, etc). There's so many ways to go with these cars, so it helps to step back, understand what route you want to take the car, before you simply start "putting on parts".
