  Hi Folks,
 After my recent aquisition of '90 90Q20V I am thinking of unloading the   
following car.
 I haven't thought about nor do I know what it might be worth.  I'll   
entertain anything that sounds
 like a reasonable offer and would appreciate any thoughts on it's value   
from anyone that has a clue.
 Maybe it should be parted out.  Please...keep the laughter to a minimum,   
as she's been one
 hell of a lady.  The car is located in southeastern NH.

 1987 5000S 2.3
 248,000 miles....I aquired at 60K
 (I put on 8,500 miles in 16 days last Fall going to Utah, British   
Columbia, and back to NH,

 Replaced windshield about 80-100K ago
 no heated seats, grey velour upholstry is in very good to excellent   
 Metallic Grey.....all paint excellent..cept chips on hood front edge.
 Automatic transmission; never any trouble

winter when Mobil 1 was used
 Fram filters used exclusively since 60K
 Car totaled at 119K...car fixed by Eurosport in Merrimack NH..better

the windshield)

Club prez's car, hood, fender, bumper

 Problem with driver's door lock coming all the way up with key (should   
be simple fix) otherwise fine

 Carpets: excellent to fair (guess where)
 Timing belt should be changed in 20-30K
