Some of you know that the week before the bash my Cavalier decided to throw a rod. Well, after numerous phone calls from the shop I would normally go to (playing phone tag), they found a used motor for the car with 35k miles but it'll be about $3k after everything to get it in the car. I've decided to junk it......I'm looking for a new car now. Probably not a J this time unfortunately.

I'm going Thursday to wish my car a farewell to it's resting place.

good decision. you can find another J for half that.

so unless you planned on swapping a 3400 and getting free labor than screw it.

BUT, you probably should have parted it out on here before junking it. How much did they give you ?

the car isn't worth parting out.....trust me. i bought it for $900 and nothing on it was in decent shape. $200 for the car....but i'll get that thursday when i drop off the title and get the plates.

3k to replace the engine?? damn I'm in the wrong business :lol:
No shit... Our mechanic charges $200 to change motors on anything. $3000 is insane.
I need to talk to your mechanic, lol! $200 is redicilous, getting brake pads on my truck is going to cost more than that..
