Scrap prices are down right now. That's a $125 car to the crusher here. We get that it's worth more as it's a VX, but a rotten car is a rotten car. Part it out for more, but don't be putting your parents into it, IMO. There is car-guy safe, and there is "my parents" safe. If you were going to drive it, then ya it's worth $300, take your chances and have fun. But man I wouldn't be putting anyone else into it. Maybe find a nice shell of a DX and put the VX drivetrain in it? My VX has 1/4 panels that a small dog could crawl out of the rust holes of, a new 02 sensor, new tires, and 338k KMs (210k miles), and the rest of it was solid, and I think it was $600? Rusty cars are a hard sell, and a liability to anyone selling one.
