Junk yards will come and get it for ya maybe even give ya 75 bucks, otherwise follow the beaterass trucks on garbage day to the dump when there full, thats what they are doing.

This is gonna hurt!

If u r looking to make $ on it, don't bet on there being much. Trust me I looked into it. Got almost a 9000lbs van we r trying to sell off, and the most we were offered is $300 bucks.

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

Whats wrong with the engine and trans?

I still see a windsheild, subframe, A/C compressor, alternator, wheels and tires, front doors.

That car isn't even close to parted out.

Auto Wreckers will usually try to charge to take a car that is not complete. Scrap Yards will want all the windows and tires removed before they will accept it. Try Ebay or Craigslist as is, I just sold a parted out MR2 on EBay for more than I paid for it.

Hammond, IN right off94/cline ave.

Hey, you're right near one of my customers: Summit Inc. 6901 Chicago Ave.
Gary, IN 46406. They have a car shredder on-site so you may get a little extra $$ from them.

As others have mentioned though you may be better off to find a "you pull it" type yard. You'll probably get more dough from them because it looks like you have a lot of good parts left and it would be a shame to shred a car in that condition.
