Well, I'd like to learn both Bujinkan and Kyushojutsu, however, I'm not a huge fan of classes, so does anyone know any good books/websites that would be a good source of information for learning them.

Not a fan of classes? May I ask why, as video is clearly an inferior means of learning martial arts?

well, I only have time really during the summer, as soon as school starts I spend most of my time doing tech at my highschool theater, then I have lacrosse in the spring, and homework. My family also takes multiple vacations so it would just be inconvienent and expensive.

Even though you're busy, you'll most likely find it much more beneficial to go to classes whenever you can make it, rather than just watching videos. I know there have been many occasions when I thought I was doing a technique perfectly, only to have my instructor show me what I was doing wrong. That's the sort of thing you just don't get from a book or video. Also, are you planning to train with others at all?

then you have not got a hope of even scrathing the surface of Bujinkan. Hell, its daunting even if your only martial art, and as such, your only hobby. 9 schools covering numerous skills, all wrapped up into one lifetime of learning. A couple of video's over the summer aint going to cut it. Save your money, follow your other persuits as they are your priority and clearly make you happy; and come back to martial arts later in your life if, or when, you are willing to dedicate the necessary amount of time to learn them properly.

qvc...you can get that piece of crap esteban guitar dirt cheap!..but its a real piece of crap. but i hear the lessons are great.( i really have heard that actually)

ed...a classical guitar is a somewhat small acoustic guitar with nylon strings. not so ironically used to play classical music such as bach or beethoven. :P however it should be noted that classical music does not neccessarily neccessitate having a classical guitar, as it can be played on any guitar for they all share the same basic makeup, and idea...much like martial arts no?
martially applicable...you bed...its a big friggin hammer...or eku maybe.

Andrés Segovia (1893-1987) is considered to be the father of the modern classical guitar movement by most modern scholars.

Once upon a time.
