To conclude this thread, my car is now getting a new crankshaft, oil pump, and rod/main bearings. I'm ordering most of the parts off of rockauto and hiring a parttime mechanic. Knowing this car is in near perfect condition (apart from the bearings of course), I chose to spend the money instead of sell it. I've gotten a next to guarantee that my oil pressure problem will be fixed because the only reason I'm loosing it is one rod bearing has spun (#2) and is loosing pressure for the rest of the system. The only way to correct this is to get the crankshaft refinished and install over-sized bearings so the tolerances will be correct. Wish me luck, I get it back in a few weeks...
