I've got a really nice '93, perfect inside, orig paint, still shiny &
polished. Everything works. Couldn't sell it for "love nor money". Some guy
wanted to trade for a 300,000 km VW TDI.  beaters you can get $2500 on a
trade in. Good for that i suppose, or drive it to the scrap yard. for $2K a
waste of time.

My 16 yo son is using it as a battering ram right now to learn his skills.
She's a great driver few oil leaks here and there. Just feels ancient and
gets the same MPG as the new RR.

	I have a '91 V-8 that has finally gotten the best of me.  It needs
work - my son has been driving it - brakes, timing belt is due,
"bomb" is shot,  torn seat, some scratches and dents in the car, and
headliner giving out, some switches and an erratic dash - all the
normal things that happen to these wonderful rides when left to their
own devices.
	I am ready to give up the battle to keep the car on the road - I
know I will regret it but time and money can be better spent elsewhere.
	What should I do - sell the car - parts the car - anyone need the car?
	I have lurked here for a few years now and kept this beast
performing well thanks to all the info on this list and will listen
to any thoughts.
