Unless you plan to keep it, you will not make any money on it and you wont make much money for parting it.

You may have a wagon but it will be 10x more fun.

Around here, if you have a way to tow the car or drive it, it would be worth buying and taking to the scrap yard. The pull a part lots are paying over $200 a ton the last time I was there. So you could make a couple $$ on it that way. As far as parting out, if the interior is trash, thats your $200 gone there. Wont get much for the rims & tires, then you will need a tow to get it out of your yard if you do sell them. For the most part, buying a car to part out and maybe make some cash on is a real long shot. Trust me, I have found a couple I thought of doing that with, but backed out before I was stuck. Its another thing if its full of parts you can use for yourself, but they wont fit your wagon..LOL.

loudsho92, by work, i meant time and money, but im more familiar with the more problematic and tempermental gen3 3.4 v-8s. I sometimes forget the gen2 3.0 and 3.2 v-6s were more reliable and less demanding.

Thats about all the yards pay that come to pick up a car. With the pull a part lots, you have to get the car to them somehow.
