Is it worth it?

My 20v is in the shop after what may potentially be an engine
terminating event. The car began losing power at freeway speeds,
which is when I noticed oil temp was pegged. I pulled over, but just
as I'm getting off the road, oil smoke poured out from under the
hood. The shop tells me the head gasket blew. Without doing any
additional investigating, they're advising me that the work required
likely isn't worth it. (Essentially tearing the engine down to look
for block & piston damage from the extreme heat, bent valves, etc)
Has anyone experienced anything like this before? I love the car and
like all of us would be reluctant to let it go, but I have to be
Thanks for any responses.
