I live in the Bay Area, have a 91 5-speed sedan with 218K and I've decided to say goodbye. I'm trying to decide if I should junk it, part it out, donate it, or wait for it to fail the biennial smog next year and get my $1K from Arnold (assuming the state isn't bankrupt by then).

Major issues: It burns oil pretty badly, which I assume is from the valve seals. After idling, it will put out a pretty good amount of smoke. That pretty much guarantees it will fail smog with the new "visable smoke" rules. The clutch started chirping a week ago, which I assume is the release bearing from what I've read here. Other than that, it runs well.

Misc: Timing belt is due for replacement. The hood is dented in front and the body has little dings here and there. The auto door locks cycle for about 30 seconds every time you lock them. The leather interior is a bit beat. Salvage title from minor accident that dented hood.

Given all of that, what would you do? My preference is to see it gone in the next month or so. Do you think I can get $500 for it somehow? If not, I guess I'll let it sit until January and wait for my DMV notice.

Thanks for all of the help over the years. This is a great forum and has saved me a lot of time and money.

Thanks for the suggestions

To get the $1000 "retirement" payment it has to drive under it's own power and have the following:

All doors are present.
• Hood lid is present.
• Dashboard is present.
• Windshield is present.
• At least one side window glass is present.
• Driver's seat is present.
• At least one bumper is present.
• Exhaust system is present.
• All side and/or quarter panels are present.
• At least one headlight, one taillight, and one brake light are present

That doesnt leave a whole lot to sell. I guess my best bet is to sell off the rest and take the $1G. I'd probably take $500 to be done with it next month, so if anyone's interested, let me know.
