Barry - my guess?  $2k to a private party, $1k is probably the most you'll
ever get on a trade in.  Add up the cost of the basics to make it a daily
driver (exhaust, timing belt, a/c, cv joint(s), clutch, tires) and you'll
run up a pretty good bill even doing most/all of it yourself.  I just sold
one similar to yours (same year, slightly less mileage), but with none of
your mechanical problems (except needing new tires) for $3400 (east coast;
prices vary a lot by region).

Just one data point for you.............SLM
