Help: Annual maintanence costs for 914s

Okay, you 914 gurus. I need some of your expertise!

I'm on the cusp of acquiring my first 914. It's a '71 1.7L, very little rust, new fuel injectors (the guy before the previous owner had installed a carb), new timing, replaced shift bushings, replaced brake pads, new stainless steel brake hoses, new tires, and a new dash. It appears to run great, but I'm going to have a mechanic look it over before buying it.

Here's the thing: I know nothing about getting in and doing work on engines and whatnot.

About how much per year can I expect this car to cost me if I take it to a mechanic for all the things that need doing?

Fortunately, I do know a pretty good mechanic. And there's at least three mechanics in town who work on 914s. So I'm not terribly worried about getting taken for a ride while the car is getting work done.

I'll probably put less than 3,000 miles on the car per year. And it will be garage kept.
