10. A similar sitch...
Maybe you got your $750s worth and it's time to back out of it for whatever you can get? When I was done with my 1984 Crown Vic wagon that we got used for a good deal it was still good, still ran well, the AC still worked, but it had a large dent on the rear quarter and the interior was aging and the headliner was held up with thumbtacks and the tires were old and it was getting harder to smog each time. I traded it for some labor around the house. Just was not worth it to me try to clean it up and sell. The dent would have been a big turn-off.

Think about it.
