After driving the car, and gaining some comfort— I noticed after I parked in the driveway and the car was shut off that there was a slight leak that looked like coolant, and another slight leak that looked like oil. They are just drips, but drips add up. With these older cars (I am 20.) I am unsure what is considered ok or usual for a 50yo car. Or could just be the slant of the driveway. Want some input.

I was chasing those same 2 leaks for years with my 69 cat. I finally had my car restored and the leaks are gone. I have a 351W engine and my coolant leak was coming from the water pump gasket and the oil leak was coming from the rear main seal on my transmission. Leaks are hard to stop in older cars but they're not impossible and don't let a shop tell you otherwise, if they try then go to another shop.
