Just like Someone has said not to wait until 60,000 miles to change plugs, I wanted to know if their was anything else That should be done.

Is their anything else I should be aware of?

Like the fuel smell when its cold. Will tightning the clamps help this issue, or do I need to buy the lengthened hoses?

Just give me some advice on hidden things that should be taken care of before it screws something else up.

Since you don't know how the previous owner cared for the car, replace the following:
1) oil and filter
2) brake fluid (flush system, replace fluid, bleed)
3) clutch fluid (same)
4) drain and refill radiator fluid
5) check power steering fluid level/color
6) check MT fluid level/color
