after having a lenghty discusion with my boss , i need to honestly answer this. she thinks just becuase they are old and have over 100k on them that they are not worth putting money in especailly if they shoudlsay need a engine or trans. her crowning glory is that her and her husband paid 3k for a nice93 sc with low miles that had a new engine. said oh its worth it becasue its maintained . well, thats a story in it self. so say like my 92 car. 130k , 5.0 sport, lowered, newer paint. (needs touched up) sunroof. all i hear is forthe money your dumping in that car you could of had a newer one. ok. that might be true to an extent. but at what point do say give up on a car that needs some work but still useable, not bad enough to be worth junking? same goes with my cougar too. what you think it would be worth if i were tosell? 89, 5.0 transplant, built trans. i woudl want 3-4 ish for it . and i guess it goes for all of our cars, the later ones seem to hold better value but the early ones , where do they stand?
