Parts are readily available via several of our sponsors. Probably the most important is the major service every three years that include the belts and tensioners.
Personally, I would steer clear of the $50-60K cars. In fact, I'd say that about the $70K cars too. My opinion is they'll all have stories (see the Buyers Guide). Plenty of good cars out there, take your time and make sure you get one of them. Don't be distracted by "bargains", you stand a good chance of being sorry later. Again, my personal opinion is that the sweet spot years for the 360 are 02-04, but that's just based on my own search for one.
Conversely, I wouldn't worry about F1 vs Stick. Buy the one you like. I drove both and while I liked the F1, the stick just seemed more natural to me and required more connection with the car. You may find you like the F1 for other reasons.
Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.
