Default should i restore my impreza or buy another impreza

hi all,

i am 40 yr old going through a midlife crisis and about to undertake restoring my mica blue 1999 turbo 2000 wagon. i played with the idea of buying a replacement scobby, but anything of the same age seems to require touching up same as mine.

do i spend money on a car i know well with a recently rebuilt engine or pay out to buy someone else's, a full nut and bolt restoration seems crazy on such a car due to the cost involved

mine has a sunroof fitted which has now led to runt around it. i have a replacement roof skin and was planning on getting some other rust issues around the car done before a full respray.

do i just call into a subaru main dealer and order the replacement parts, or is there a company out there who supplies replacement parts??

your opinion/advice is welcomed

re shell it into a good classic saloon shell, it will be worth a lot more than a wagon in the future
