Default In a dilemma and need some advice

Alright well i have this 2004 ford taurus ses with 100k miles on it. It ran fine till the cat took a shit and it's 650$ for a new one. It has some rust and a big dent in the door and scratches and what not.

Problem is i don't have a title for it. I am in the process of trying to get one but it is taking forever and i don't think i am capable of getting it. The car isn't stolen, it is just a really long story.

The dilemma is, should i just take the car to the scrap yard and see what they will pay? Or should i part it out? I have a two people that want some little things like a headlight and a bumper cover. But what about the engine and trans? I don't have the time nor the tools to take them out.

So what should do? Thanks for the help guys. The car is just really getting in my way now, It is taking up half of my garage and i want to do something with it.

If anyone needs any parts let me know

I have someone willing to give me 200$ shipped for one headlight and the bumper cover

X2 anything else would just be a major headache. Do yourself a favor and get rid of it.

there are places that can get you a title but it does cost money... I would just scrap it as is if money is tight.... if you decide to dump it in the lake, give me a call id like to put someone in the trunk first lol

id sell it to the junkyard. parting it out will make you a few bucks now, but you'll have a metal heap that nobody wants later.

lol @ Bob.

I'd just get rid of it. Part it out, then sell the shell/engine to whoever wants it, be it private party or scrapyard. You will have to get a title though, unless you can get in contact with McShady's Auto Parts.

To sell to a junkyard/ scrap yard without a title, I believe it has to be in like 3 or 4 pieces. But this probably also varies from state to state.

Either you can, or you can't. If its not stolen, even if it takes a while, do it.

My brother has had a lot of cars, those that weren't good enough for resale, he sold in parts and made a LOT more than selling to a scrapyard. I'd advertize it on cl (since its big in the US) and your local net ads, after you make your money, give the rest to the scrapyard, they'll be more than happy to pick it up to profit from the rest.

Just a suggestion, could be different where you live.

edit: crap i just saw your last post.. lol
