$350? Anybody in Vancouver? If you are mechanical enough to take the head off, get the valves done, then put it back together yourself, you could even make some money off it if you resold it. But its nice enough to keep, and it will last a long time once the head is redone. My other one averaged 32 mpg with just regular driving and well inflated tires. And it had 60k more KMs on it. With some proper hypermiling it could pull in some good numbers, and if you need to drive on the highway a lot these cars are geared surprisingly well, 120 km/h if you need to do it and the car doesn't break a sweat.
