Default $1000 for repairs BS!

Yea Got a quote on what its gonan cost to fix a pulley.. $944. Thats ridiculous. Now thereas a $1000 there. Now i got to fix a $1000 dent and thats $2000. I bought the car for $2000. I got it 1/2 off cause dad is a Dealer. Ok so the repairs are as much as the car... Should I keep the car? or sell it and try to get a SSEi. I gota 92 SSE.. Should i sell it and try to get about a 93-95 SSEi? Keep in mind I can get another deal from my Dad.. So I can get cars cheap... whats your guys view on this??

What pulley? The AC compressor? That'* steep. You can fix that yourself easy. You can probably get another door and have it repainted for alot less than $1000, too.

Chances are you aren't going to get enough cash out of a 10 year old car with two ruined doors and a broken A/C compressor to help with the purchase of another car.

Have you tried wrecking yards and going the used part route? Might be worth looking into. I know the wrecking yard around here has a dark blue 92 SSEi with 4 perfect doors on it... not sure what the shipping would be to Ohio, but it'* an option. The A/C compressors should be readily available.
