Not in my case.The car stays with me till I die. You make some good points

That may well be the most profound reply I have seen -- if we all allow it.
To my way of thinking, that is a sad state of affairs, and you must realize
ultimately dooms the cars you say you care about so much.
Nissan WILL shut down the parts source eventually as the demand goes away.
I am quite sure Nissan has made less and less money every year on roadster
many of the prices haven't even increased in 5 years, someone will figure this
All the smaller suppliers will shut down or move into used stuff primarily,
everything in sight and ultimately folding as customers junk and dump their
cars (at a loss)
because they can't get critical parts.
Only the biggest suppliers will be left with a significant stock of new parts
you think prices are high now you haven't seen anything yet....the prices will
have to go up
as the volume drops off..otherwise they close too....that is pretty simple...

I think many many more cars would be restored and properly maintained if one
could at least
break even on it....losing thousands of dollars tends to discourage some
Oh, well, I tried.....
