OK I have a HUGE Commute 5 days a week and I was just given a 2002 PT Cruiser for free with 80K on it. The wagon gets approx 16MPG this will get 25 and has about 100k less on it, and its FREE!
Since the Caprice I really want is an early 70s I am not emotional attached to this one and its time to go. It is a solid daily driver with 171k.
The bad - dented hood, broken grill, scratched up bumper, rusty not rusted through drivers door, needs a pass side intermediate pipe, needs new front shocks and alignment & slow drivers window but I have new motor.
The good - Feb 2011 new plugs, wires, opti, water pump, electric fan ipo mech & coil. Last summer got a new radiator and upper ball joints. This winter it got new cargo springs in the rear and coil over assit shocks, an alternator & a new heater core. The rear tires are nice lots of tread the fronts I just noticed the need for an alignment after a 1400 mile road trip ruined the front tires. I have a new window motor for drivers door. Two months ago I put in 2 new Walker Quiet Flow Mufflers. I have but not installed yet a set of Innovative Wirings (Gary's) Battery Cables.
The question is do I sell it as is and be done? If so what could I get? Maybe part it out? I am so confused
