Actually, considering that the buggy is 20+ years old, there are a buttload of parts available on eBay, from bodies to suspension arms to bearings and chassis plates & gears. But if it were up to me, I'd just restore it to pristine condition and use it as a shelf queen/presentation piece. There are far more economical cars to bash with, and I certainly don't think it would be a very effective race competitor.
