Question 1992 Mazda 929

My first car.. The thing still runs, but the frame is basically done. Any idea how much I should sell it for? People are selling engines for around $500.. I'm okay with getting as low as $300 for the whole car, though. I just want it gone.

Or even, how much would it cost to get the frame fixed? I'm not sure of the extent of the rust but i'm pretty sure it'* pretty bad. But if it'* not an outlandish amount I can take it up to Caruso'* and get an estimate- but I don't want to waste my time if it'* going to be over $1500

You may check and see if giving it away to non-profit for a tax write off might get you more money in the end, than trying to un-load it for cash. Something to think about.

Sorry about this being miscategorized.
I was in a rush to put it up before I left work

But thanks for that advice.. I'll look into it.

Last night, I was going to move it for the first time in a few months. It started up and it actually sounded great; No grinding sounds and no smelly exhaust. Just a squeaky belt that'* been squeaky forever. But it shuddered and shut off a few minutes after I started it.

Hoping it'* just a bad sparkplug or clogged fuel injectors.. Not more serious
