The last one I bought was $50, which is not to say that yours is worth 50
bucks, but that it really depends on condition.  I saw a pretty nice one
go for about 1500 last year, and I've seen 5KCSTQs at the $2500 mark, so I
doubt that a 5Ks would be worth more than that despite its relatively low
mileage.  OTOH, I've also seen some average 5KCSTQs going fro a thousand
more than that, so it really depends on the buyer/seller/location/etc. 
Those are wholesale numbers BTW, so add a few hundred for retail.  The
CD/stereo system doesn't add much unless you get just the right buyer. 
You're better off taking it out and using it on your next car.
