In my opinion it would be a shame to part it out. My 2001 with 385K mi is running great and gets me to work every day smooth as you please. Too many of these cars are getting wrecked or trashed and being parted out. This one sounds solid, with a lot going for it, even if it needs a transmission, in which case the next owner will drive it to 600K+. Someone will treasure and preserve this car. And Jim is right, it may be a simple fix. Scott?
