The price of a good V8 is very low these days. I paid a little over $2K for my 
'90 V8 converted to a 5-speed. It has lots of nice modifications, which probably 
cost 4-5 times the price of the car.  A V8 needing lots of fiddling, including 
the big T-Belt, isn't worth much.  Sadly, parting it out may not be worth the 
time and effort either.

If the driving son doesn't want to do the work to keep it, I'd say sell if for 
whatever you can get for it and treat yourself to a nice dinner out. Then let 
junior find and fund his own ride. :)
