'92 VX for sale.

Bought it 3 years ago in Portland, OR.
Has been my daily driver ever since.
Replaced a front axle, had the timing belt done last year...

Seems to be pretty close to stock. I'm not a pro eye on these things but I did carfax the thing and it came up clean.

247,XXX on the ODO
It's not a "looker"...I call it peeling green and cracked black.
The interior is pretty worn and has some dog hair.
Driver door has a scratch and dent and the window needs a little help to seal.
Driver door interior panel is a little ugly up near the window...
Front tires are bald.
It has been slipping a bit in 3rd, 4th gear so maybe some clutch issue?

Anyway, I know that many of you here love these cars and someone could probably do good things with it.

I would like to sell the car whole but I have considered parting it out.

I am taking offers.
What would YOU pay for this car?

I have pics for anyone interested. I can email them...I don't have enough posts yet for links in new posts... maybe I'll go work on that!

thanks for your time and or interest!
(hopefully i didn't break any forum rules here. If i have then sorry.)

I figure take the blue book value then subtract the repair costs, so a window seal from the dealership is $40, transmission from the junk yard is $100 to $200 and a clutch is $50 to $150 from the parts store, first time I ever replaced a transmission on a civic vx it took me 8 hours including a trip to the car wash to pressure wash the dirt off the one I was installing and for car repairs that require skill or that I have to wash cloths or bandaide knuckles afterwards I charge $25 an hour for, so my time to change a transmission is worth $200, a mechanic might charge $300 to $700 to swap it out.
But the important question about a civic VX is how rusty is it? you bought it in Portland OR so it should be pretty clean other then the dents and blue book value on it is $2,500??? fix it, detail it and put it on Ebay and you might get $3000 to $4000 judging from how they have been selling the past few months, or put it on craigs list and you should have it sold in a week for about $1,000 less.
