why would you ever take out the headlights?
pop-up headlights are like 99% of the point of driving an 80s sports car. also, just dont buy a car with power seats, easy. there are much better and easier ways to save weight too, like AC delete, way more weight, and right where you need it, and the AC probably doesnt work anymore anyway. though again, i wouldnt do any of this unless you are building a track rat, as for a street car, you are gaining basically nothing, and doing a shit ton of work (esp if you plan to deconvert it when you sell it) and spending money.
as far as fixing things go. they are 30 year old cars now, every single thing will eventually need to be replaced, regardless of miles. if you go in knowing that, its not that bad, as they are fairly easy to fix by modern standards. these cars will nickel and dime you to death, and there are lots of "while im in here" repairs. that being said, they are realiable, and mine has never left me stranded anywhere, even when it overheated on top of a mountain in yellowstone.
i flirt with the idea of a 928 ... they are amazing cars, in every possible way. they seriously define super car, before there even was such a term. but i can't imagine the running costs ....
