Selling a broken car (hello Bwana?)

I have a '99 Taurus(1 of 3 cars I own) with 120k plus miles on it. Were awaiting the final prognosis, but our fear is it may have blown a head gasket (as my wife was driving it home from the mechanic). We've become very frustrated with this car and instead of paying for this repair if its going to break us, we'd rather try and sell the vehicle as is since we owe nothing on it. Are there people out there who's business it is to buy cars for parts or junk cars? We'd rather just wash our hands of this mess. How can I determine the street value of the vehicle? Any recommendations? I'm tempted to use explosives.

yeah, I think the feds have changed the rules on car donations. You have to claim the actual value of your particular vehicle I believe. Not the good deal it used to be.

A '99 Taurus huh....ouch. When I was in the business we called them a (Cle-Taurus) I have never been very fond of them because of the head gasket issue, err, that and their trannies tend to implode.

Here is what I would do. Go to your local auto parts store and try to find a product called Blue Devil Engine & Cooling Sealant. That stuff works about 95% of the time. It's a bit on the expensive side, $59.95 a quart, but a quart is a full treatment. Unless the leak is huge, it should take care of it.

As far as price if you do nothing, wow, I have no idea other than to say no much. You would get the most money parting it out, but that can be a pain as well and you still have to deal with the car carcass after it's picked over. Iím going to send you a smoke in a minute that may help.

$700 was the actual value... Rebuilt tranny installed was $800.

The running value was $1500.

Wasn't going to try and screw the Feds, last thing I want is an audit.

It'll be worth 50-100 as a crusher/parts car at a salvage yard.

I called salvage on mine, figured they would part out some of the newer parts....alternator, engine etc.

$100 bucks if I brought it in, if they picked it up nothing.

Since this seems to be the thread, curious what a 2 door 98 honda civic sadan with 122k (in perfect condition) could bring.

Dx, LX, EX, SE? 5 spd or auto.

BTW: If you have a 2 door and a sadan, you have a ONE OF A KIND Honda Rausch.
