I let my girlfriend borrow my shitbox, and she wrecked the shit out of it

I let my girlfriend borrow my shitbox, and she wrecked the shit out of it. So I'm looking for a new vehicle, and I'm turning to Veeky Forums to help me decide.

Needs to be a 'vert
Needs to be manual
Would prefer a 4 seater, not mandatory as long as it has enough room to hide a body with 2 passengers
Not a Miata
Flip up headlights are a plus
Preferably good on gas
Not a fucking Miata
Fast as fuck is a plus
Easily available in okay condition for 3k or less
I like the look of cars from the 80s
And not a mother fucking Miata
I'm not a fan of German cars
or Miatas

Things I've considered:
RX-7, it's a 2 seater though, and the 13B has known problems
TR7, but they're difficult to find and 2 seater
Foxbody Mustangs, but the GT is bad on gas and no flip up headlights
Porsche 944, but they're very hard to find in convertible

I'm hoping you guys can help me out here, as I have no idea what to get. Pic related, it's the shitbox my girlfriend wrecked.

Pic related is easily the most underrated 4-seat convertible of all time, but good luck finding it in manual.

The other option is a Lelclipse Spyder, but they're harder to shop for.

Have you looked at Porsche 924 convertible? They're cheaper than 944s and also less prone to breaking down.

I'd get a 924 or a MR2, but I'm not seeing any available local to me. I've already considered both of them. I don't like Sebrings or "Lelclipses" because everyone has one.

I'm also half tempted to just buy another Celica. It was a great daily.

Whoever posted the Sebring, kys. Why are you on an auto enthusiast board posting Sebrings?

The only issue is that I have an undying hate for BMWs and Volksfagens for no good reason.
@Nude_Bikergirl
I've found everything there for $3K or less. Except a 'vert 944, I've found hardtops for that price though.

True, consider a 240 then, just beware of rust.

My one friend who used to be an engine builder told me the stock apex seals on the 13B go out between 90k-140k miles.
@WebTool
I've considered getting a C4, but I'm looking for a shitbox daily. I've also considered 9-3s, but they're just damn ugly.

Actually a z32 would better.. Its more comfy than the 240 and a much better cruiser

A vote for FC RX-7 here. Plenty of convertibles that nobody else wants for cheap. Checks all your boxes and is infinitely more reliable than a TR7 despite the apex seals meme.

That's why I'm looking for more suggestions of unpopular cars that don't cost as much. I'm okay with some of the cheap garbage on craigslist since it's just gonna be a daily. The Celica in the picture only cost me $900.
@Ignoramus
If I wasn't already considering getting rid of the car, I wouldn't have let her borrow it.

you can find them at a lower price since nobody wants the convertible because. This is in LA too, used cars are typically more expensive here.

maybe you should consider getting a convertible PT Cruiser :^)

I was also considering this RX-7.
(I'm in PA)

A PT Cruiser? Really?

How did she wreck the rear of the car so hard? She drives everywhere in reverse?

From what I can gather, she took a turn doing at least 40. My Celica was never meant to be a drift car.

I spy with my little eye a front passenger fender that doesn't line up. Dude probably rolled the wheel back in to the wheel well on a curb.
Lowered but doesn't say what he lowered it with
No engine pic

I went 240 shopping for a year before buying mine. Its damn near impossible to find even a nice KA that runs well under 3k
