What's it worth ??


Depends entirely on its condition.---

If it's a generally good and reliable car then get it done.

Better the devil you know.---

Never ask yourself the question what the car is worth. What it's worth on paper doesn't mean anything. If you can't buy a better car for the money that it'll take to get the job done, then getting it done is the way to go.

Yes it's currently off-road until I can save up for new clutch
