if you like it , keep driving it. how is the body? Like you said, not worth anything to anyone but yourself. Parting it out takes time and effort, but might be an option.

I agree with Tom. As long as there's not major repairs needed or the car is no longer safe I'd keep it. My '03 S-10 Pick Up has 288,000 miles on it and runs like a champ. If you do decide to sell it, and it still runs and is safe to drive I'd put a $500 price tag on it. Maybe some kid would want it or someone looking for parts. Otherwise, you can always junk it for about $200 to $300 for scrap. BTW, nothing embarrassing about having a car reach 28 years old and nearly a half million miles!! It's a testimony of how well you've taken care of it. You should be proud of yourself!! HTH. -Jim
