||My folks in Livingston, NJ have an '87 Chevy Celebrity wagon with a
||2.8 MFI and 116k miles. The engine is terrific and even the A/C is
||cold. We're replacing it because it's gotten quite rusty. Some of
||the body panels are fine, while others have rust eating through the
||outer layers. Its only mechanical issues right now are that it needs
||a new muffler and probably a new radiator soon since the current one
||leaks a little. My dad's still driving it every day though he's soon
||going to transfer its registration and plates onto another car.
||Obviously, the car is too old to sell, and nobody would buy it in this
||kind of shape. My friend told me that charities won't take cars older
||than 1991's, and she said that even junkyards are turning away older
||Is this true? I'm hoping that someone out there would be at least
||willing to tow away the car for free. The 2.8 MFI, A/C, alternator,
||water pump, seats, glass, etc are all fine. If you replaced the
||radiator and muffler, it would probably make it to California just
||Anyways, if you have any suggestions, or might even be interested in
||the car, please let me know.
If it drives and can be licensed, advertise it locally.
I sold my daughter's '87 Celebrity to a delaer for $200 in just a few days.
Had to jump it off at least 10 times before we got him to the freeway and out of
