86 Prelude CL find, worth it?

So i found a 86 lude that seems in decent shape and is inspected, just needs a head gasket and timing belt replacement done. I have a h22 build going on now, so im not afraid of work, but I am hearing that replacing a TB and HG is huge chore... For the price it would be a great daily, obviously after a little TLC. But would this be worth the effort, and is a TB and HG really that bad?

It's not any more (or less) of a chore than doing an H22. And the car does look pretty nice.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
