[MR2] <MKII>Parts needed - Now T-Tops leaking.

I bought an 87 Conquest TSI from an auction that someone had modified with a
lot of HKS stuff just before it was repossessed.
The car would throw you back in the seat as well as any V-8
It was cool until the second day I owned it and I opened the hood.
Lots of stuff said HKS... I never did find the engine though. I think there
was some 2.8 out of a Caravan buried under a bunch of hosed and wires
It went to a new owner and I made money... the one good thing about owning a
dealership. Very little buyer's remorse.
Good cars I made money... bad cars I didn't.
Luckily there were more good cars than bad

I've replaced so many things this year, it's crazy. They're definitely
not reliable transportation and they're even harder to work on than an MR2.
The only reason I keep it around is because it's so fast. They're insanely
easy to make VERY fast. Everyone and their brother has one, so parts are
dirt cheap. There's a zillion of them built up to serious HP, so finding
performance parts and knowledge is real easy too... :-)
What are people looking at as replacements for their MKII MR2s nowadays?
I see the day coming when I might not be able to keep mine anymore. Parts
are getting harder and harder to find, etc. Doesn't seem to be any other
car out there that's comparable. I'm actually starting to look at Mustangs
now (which I never thought I'd do), because I just can't find *anything*
like my MR2 (that I can afford anyways).
