Hi Grant and welcome!
As a hobbiest you will love the 308! Very easy to work on once you get past the fact that you can never get to the part you want without removing some other part first. Kind of like peeling the layers off an onion. I recommend a '79 or earlier which is prior to the fuel injection. The carbs are something you can tinker with, the fuel injection either works or it doesn't and is expensive to replace. (Although I've never heard of one going bad). You might take a look at the GT4 also.
BTW - when you are in Detroit, don't bother calling Lane to see if he wants to meet up for lunch. Detroit is like a 13 hour drive from Connecticut. Call Chris, he lives in Detroit.
