RE: [DMCForum] Is It Worth It?



Ok, now that $3k price makes a LOT more sense.  We didn't know the cylinder
head needs to be removed.

Based on what Rob listed $3k sounds very reasonable.

Lauren,

As I think you know the price included- 1) Complete exhaust rebuild with all
new studs, gaskets, and resurfacing of the manifolds (severe leaks)etc. 2)
R&R Pass. side cyl. head and replace gasket and head bolts (clt. leak)3) R&R
C.V. shafts and repack all joints w/new boots 4) Inst. sleeved R/H axle yoke
w/new seal 5) Sleeved crank pulley and seal 6) Misc. stuff
We already have done items item's 3), 4) & ,5) and started on the exhaust.
We could put off doing the head gasket leak but it makes little sense with
the exhaust system already down. The car would be a hard sell with exhaust
and head gasket leaks  so investing the 3K would more than pay for itself. 

I wish you had talked to us before buying the car a couple years ago on
E-bay but hindsight is 20-20. We have to work with what you've got but I
understand your frustrations. When we both have time we should sit down and
discuss whether it's best to sell or keep your car.

Hi everyone.

I'm struggling with a dilemma right now.  My beloved Belinda needs a 
lot of work done.  She is at Rob's shop.  Apparently, the whole 
exhaust system is shot, and will require $3000 worth of repairs.

Does anyone, particularly those of you that have seen my car, have 
any advice as to whether it is worth it?  All total, I have spend 
$27,000 on this car.  For that price, I could have had a perfect 
Delorean.  I'm still left with one with 24,000 miles, and cosmetic 
problems.  

I hate to sell it, because I love the car and also because I have 
sunk so much money into it, but I don't know what to do.  I can't 
really afford another $3000.  

Any idea what a car with moderate aesthetic problems (chipped paint, 
saggy rear fascia, torn seats, dashboard crack) and a bad exhaust 
would fetch?  

After this, I think I will have replaced every part of the engine 
except for the transmission.  Any idea how long that will take to 
go?  

Thanks!
